I have been at FAU for three months I have made many friends and my life did an enormous change I could not have imagined a better result after my first year away from home in a new culture Now I not only have my friends from my country but also our friends from all over I thought that my classmates would not really talk to me or not try and hang out with me on the weekends I thought that from their point of view I was just a little freshman This however was not the case I have lots of friends here at FAU I know that I am where I want to be for the next four years If I had the chance to go back I would not change anything My transition into FAU has happen sooner then I expected and made me worry less about the culture I left behind at home Overall my transition from small town life in Cali Colombia to life at Florida Atlantic University is over Transculturation has allowed me to fit in and make friends in my new environment Although there still is a culture clash between my home and FAU I have created a life and am accepted into both cultures The contact zone between Cali and FAU will never go away but I am now comfortably a part of both cultures The contact zone exists but it doesnt for me Much like Guaman Poma I learned the ways at FAU and now am part of the life here I had to overcome a culture clash through transculuration and create a new lifestyle for myself I still enjoy going home to see my friends and family but I enjoy staying at FAU too I am glad I choose to attend FAU and I am looking forward to the next four years here
