The American School of Madrid was the home away from home for many children who were transferred to Madrid, Spain because of their parent's job.  The experiences of expatriates (people living in a country other than their own) opens their eyes to many new experiences.  They experience language, culture, food and many other things by being there.  They experience culture shock and reverse-culture shock (when they come home).  American School of Madrid alumni live all over the world and their choice of careers is as varied as their experiences.  Meet some of the former students of the American School of Madrid through their interviews.
