Experiencing a Different Hispanic Culture Than My Own

"A big part of why I wanted to study in Spain was because I wanted to live a Hispanic experience that was completely different from my own. Sure, in Mexico or Latin America I probably would have felt more comfortable in terms of culture shock, but I was craving something different from what I’d grown up with."
