As a first-generation college student from a low income family, Gonzalez Icardi never thought he would have the chance to travel outside his home country. This reflection expresses his deep gratitude for the opportunity to study at LMU, and his eagerness to take advantages of the services that the university provides. Gonzalez Icardi found his Ignacio Companions trip to be eye opening, expanding his awareness of how other cultures live; though heartbreaking at times, Gonzalez Icardi remains grateful for the experience.
