(SISS) What was one of the hardest things that you had to go through? What advice would you give someone going through the same struggle? (Trishia) Well for sure it was when I moved to another country. l was 40 years old it was my hardest thing, especially when you don't speak the language. When you don't have friends, no family and for sure another culture. My advice is please, please do NOT give up and you have to trust YOURSELF, do not be afraid to speak another language, meet new people, and think that a NEW situation brings always a NEW experience and your AGE doesn’t matter when you do new things in your life.

Can you tell us a quick story or moment/night of a relationship experience, a lesson learned? (This could be funny or serious). (Trishia) When l arrived to Germany, many things happened to me, but one of the most saddest situations was: when l have to say good bye to my father by telephone when he was dying in Mexico. One of my sisters called me and said to me that my father was dying and had only a few hours left. It was a terrible moment for me because l wanted to be with him, to say good bye in person, look in his eyes and say thank you to him for all that he gave me in my life, but l couldn’t because l had a airline ticket for the next day and it was to late for me to see him alive. After all of this situations l was continuing to learn German. l found a nice job l started to have friends and slowly I continued my life here. l can say that was NOT EASY for me, l cried, and l cried and cried... l wanted give up many times and return to Mexico.
