Roxanna Mota had been living her childhood years in central Texas, but when both of her parents were laid off through the same company, they were forced to find new jobs elsewhere. Those new jobs just happened to be 5,396 miles away.

Switzerland itself was a small country, but gave her the ability to see a multitude of cultures. She came into the country and quickly experienced all of the different foods and languages. The architecture mesmerized her. It was very different from the United States.

She entered the brisk, cold country and was placed in a private school by the name of St. George’s International School. The school was full of people from all over the world, letting Roxy discover a diverse group of cultures.

The two years she was there she became close with many people from around the world, and when the time came to come back to America, she had to say her goodbyes. It was hard, but also a happy moment, parting ways with close friends and moving forward in life. Her graduation day marked the end of her time in Switzerland.

Moving away from Switzerland was not ideal because of all of the people and places she was leaving behind. Roxy could no longer visit London for less than $100 anymore, and she wasn’t able to go down to a bakery and buy the best homemade bread you’ve ever tasted for only 50 cents, but it was time for her to go back to Texas.

Coming back to America was not at hard as it seemed for Roxy. She was given the privilege to see and experience many cultures and live in a foreign country, which most people can’t say they’ve done.

Roxy is finishing her high school career at CPHS and plans on going to A&M next year while she waits on University of California, Berkeley to get back to her on her admission there.
