Hi, my name is Rosa, I'm 17 years old and I want to share my whole experience living in Canada.
When I go to the college it was 1am and it means that I didn’t have time to realise that I was in Nova Scotia, the next day, basically the same if we talk about the hours we take the breakfast at the cafeteria and I was very afraid because everyone there knows each other and I was the new girl who doesn’t knows nobody and who doesn’t have a roommate so it was bad. I had the breakfast with the teachers.
After that we go with Mike to have a little bit introduction about what is our job as a foreign correspondent, we were wondering what he means when he said “all of you are here working”, to be honest I was so confused, then he explains that our job is to write about our experience in Nova Scotia to our friends, family and for students all around to world, Monica teach us how to us the social media and they bring a photographer to teach us how to take cool photos even if you don’t have a professional camera, because she said the best camera you have is the one you can carry with you everyday. Then we met the famous Paul Millman, he is awesome and I feel so proud to say that I come from Campeche, Mexico because for they Campeche is the capital from Mexico even when they know that the capital is Mexico City, because we have an amazing brotherhood.
In Campeche we have the brotherhood tree to represent this relationship.
All of the foreign correspondents are having this huge opportunity because they give us a scholarship but we get it in different ways; I was on a Leadership Camp in Campeche, when the Camp ends all of us had the opportunity to apply for a scholarship, I made an essay and that’s the way I get the scholarship and then after a lot of paperwork I’m living this huge experience with people from all around the world. Together we go to Halifax to Citadel and to have trip on the Harbour Hopper, it was insane and Alex, the tourist guy is so funny and handsome, to be honest. After the trip we went to McKelvies Restaurant and I ate panko crusted haddock with creamy garlic shrimp, it was my first time eating fish after 5 years and I really like it, the return to the college was so cool, just Mike and me talking about music because the guys were sleeping. The next day we do the passport scavanger hunt and after that each of us was going with our own host family.

Mike introduces me to Sheldon, I was with his family for a week, the first day we went to Halifax for shopping. They are a cute family and it was hard to eat somethings but Sheldon made a good job, I like most of the things he made. We play phase 10 at nights and I loved it, even when it was hard to understand all the rules. Now I’m with Laura and Theresa and they are so funny, I met Laura daughter’s, Deryn and Sydney are twins and even that they are so different, we had an ice cream cake for their birthday, I met Leah at the afternoon, she is so cool, she had a good sense on books, she has really good books. I’m waiting to meet Teralee.
