Nuria (Spain) is a BFF alum from 2023 and was thrilled to be back in the United States, reunited with her beloved host family, the McKennas, in North Carolina. She’s currently in her second semester at a University studying to be a teacher! She got her driver’s license in February, and with a tutoring job lined up for her return to Spain, she is fully “adulting.”

When she saw her former CA, Lisa B., she informed her that she was making a presentation about her culture to her host sister’s Spanish class. Nuria’s journey was a testament to the everlasting bond between a host family and their exchange student. The most beautiful part of the hosting experience is how the relationships grow after the exchange year.
