“ HOME WASN’T A SET HOUSE, OR A SINGLE TOWN ON A MAP. IT WAS WHEREVER THE PEOPLE WHO LOVED YOU WERE, WHENEVER YOU WERE TOGETHER.
Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go. ”
Julia was a semester student last fall and she recently returned back to Brazil. She had the chance to share her exchange experience with Maria from Spain, as a double placed student with the Cornell family. Her host mom and sister in the picture will miss her. What a great quote from Julia. She will forever have a family in Michigan and the Cornell family will forever have a daughter in Brazil. This is what youth exchange is all about.
