We’d like to introduce you to Kristin! she is a nice and multitasking young woman that has a lot to say about her adventures in Merida. Kristin grew up in a military family, so they moved more often than most people and she thinks that might be the reason why she loves changes and exploring new things. Kristin and her family are very religious, and she is really involved with religious missions that her church organizes around the world. Because of that Kristin has traveled a lot and has already experienced new cultures, this was part of the reason why she decided to come to Mexico and get immersed with the culture and improve her Spanish. She goes to Murray State University and has a major in Spanish so what better way to learn that come to Merida and get fully immersed in the culture? MSU is part of the KIIS consortium that has a summer and semester program in Merida. Once the summer is over, Kristin will participate in another religious mission and will visit some villages around Puebla, in the center part of Mexico. Kristin not only loves her experience here in Merida but above all she loves the delicious food that her host mom cooks, “I think when I go back to the US, I will be suffering about not eating the delicious rice and beans of my Mama”. Kristin has now a new perspective about things here in Mexico.
