Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

The joy of meeting people from different cultural backgrounds

I have always found it exciting to meet people from different cultural backgrounds. I'm always very intrigued to learn about what people my age do in different parts of the world. There are times that they do pretty much the same type of things as I do and there are other times when they do much more exciting things than I do. The last 2 weeks I was in Germany for a short study abroad course for school. During this trip, I met people from Germany, Italy, Zimbabwe, Austria, and South Africa. These people were around the same age as I and it was very interesting to learn how different but at the same time how alike we all were. We all had pretty much the same interests, one of them being meeting new people from around the world. For me, it was very interesting to learn how much influence the American culture has on the world. Most of these people love American tv shows and music. It was awesome being able to share these same interests. Throughout the whole course, we all got along very well. We even added each other on Facebook the second day we met (that's how fast we all got along)! Nevertheless, meeting people from around the world is an exciting experience for me. I hope to continue meeting people from different cultural backgrounds to broaden my perspective on the world.
