Just a moment with Viridiana Yunes Valle
“Security really is an issue in Mexico. There’s a lot of crime and therefore I used to worry a lot about my sons. That’s why we started looking for universities abroad. A friend recommended us this country and education system. His oldest son is studying here. We thought it would be a good choice for Unai, because Holland has many opportunities to travel around Europe.
Life is better here. It’s a safe country with a different mindset. I don’t like it that we will live so far away from each other, but my husband and I prefer this situation. My worst fear is that he will be alone. That he has no family and friends around. But still I prefer that fear than the fear of something bad happening to him in Mexico.”
Viridiana Yunes Valle, mother of first-year International Public Management student Unai Ruiz de Azua. She arrived in Holland together with Unai this summer to drop him off at THUAS. She returned to Mexico at the end of August.
