It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.

— Theodore Roosevelt

It’s really curious how all this new experience of living overseas has meant to my personal development. And if you think like a Salvadorian, it’s literally over-seas and in a different continent. And while this definition of “different” might sound a little overused, I can surely say that everything is completely different. Just take from instance the region Turkey is located in, and you will see what I’m talking about.

The change I was confronted with was very different and a bit overwhelming. Take for example, a completely different language, or new food, or the way people think, just to name a few. And in matter of weeks I had to adapt to the new city I was living in. Now that the transition is over and I look back, I can clearly see that was not an easy path. There were always these decisions that I had to make. Whether make some time and Skype with my friends and family back at home, or just hang out with my new friends and start making long-lasting bonds.


Develop my knowledge, experiences, skills and capabilities within a company or organization that allows me to apply my knowledge acquired during academic preparation, past work experience and social work, and work towards unified objectives and committed to grow periodically through self-development.

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

— Ralph Waldo Emerson
