Dear Abby: I’m a high-school student who has the amazing opportunity to travel to Spain for a school year as an exchange student. I know I am lucky to have this opportunity, but I am scared about the people there.
I am a Mormon, so I will have to uphold my standards alone in a non-Mormon environment. I have never been away from home for so long, and that is hard enough as it is. I guess I need some advice on how to be strong when I’m there.
