How do I make this Mexican girl in my class understand that Iberian Spanish is the root of Mexican Spanish?

There is a Mexican girl in my class and we got into an argument about variants of the Spanish language. She says that Mexican Spanish isn’t Spanish and that if a Mexican goes to Spain that the Spaniard and the Mexican won’t understand each other. I understand that pronunciation is a little bit different, and I also know that Mexican Spanish has indigenous pre-Spanish Mexican words added to it, but I know it’s not a completely different language.
