Home Again

Emir reflects on his transition back to Mexico and beginning Medical School in Monterrey…

After my return to Mexico I felt abandoned because nobody went to the airplane to pick me up, so I stayed there for over an hour. Finally I decided to surf on the internet and I realized that somebody sent me an email about why nobody went to pick me up and they told me that I must take a taxi toward the houses. Then after much time waiting finally I arrived at the house and I went to my room. It was a surprise because although nobody was in the airport waiting it for me, a lot of people were waiting for me in the door of the house. It was a pleasure to see everybody there waiting for me.

The next morning I woke up and I thought  that I was in my house with my two little brothers Elias and Joshua and of course Karen and Dave, but I wasn`t there. I went to take a shower because the weather is not like Seattle! Here in Monterrey it is very hot, sometimes I go out to the street and I can feel how my skin is burned. Then I was unpacking and I realized that I lacked  a lot of things like my hangers for my clothes, shampoo, soap, blankets, towels and other personal items, so I asked for a few thing to my friends and I was not surprised that everybody gave me something – I really love my friends!

Right now I concluded all my paper work and admission for the university so I am really excited about that, although I start feeling very worried about school because it will start in only one week, so I feel weird but I am very confident that I can do it!

Finally I would like to say thank you to all the people who support the leadership program, Kara King, my family the Fittons, and all the host families for everything that all of you give us, the charter group of the international leadership program of Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos. Thank you and I hope to see you again.  Take care!!

We will keep in touch.
