Changes

People are a collaboration of various traits that make them an individual. Moving yourself to a new country, full of foreign customs and people really shows you what traits you're made of. I started to realize that no matter where in the world I am, I carry with me that i'm humorous and animated. The flip side of this is realizing the traits you lost. No longer was I able to communicate with people or able to share knowledge on local topics. It was an adjustment. Trying to accept my new reputation and stay true to who I thought I was. I wanted everyone in Paraguay to think of me as the same individual that my peers back in Canada did. However  being stripped down to my raw personality provided me with room to grow. A once in a lifetime opportunity to gain new traits and better myself. This really opened my eyes to the fact that wherever we go in the world, we'll only carry true personality traits with us. Although my Canadian friends know the Canadian Autumn, my Paraguayan friends will only ever know the Paraguayan Autumn.

  1. It sounds like you miss your friends and family in your home country. But it also sounds like you have learned to adapt to Canada although at first was challenging.
