International Panel

Posted on May 5th, 2009 by Laura Herrejón

Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to participate in an International Panel. You might wonder what it is; well it is a panel with about a 300 people in the audience listening to what International Students have to say about their lives as adolescents in their country before they came to the United States.

This year the countries represented were: Mexico (Me, of course! :) ), China, Japan, Kenya, Nigeria, the Ivory Coast Panama and Turkey. It was very interesting because even as International Students we learn from each other. For example, I learned that it is very important for Chinese students to do well in their end of high school exam to enter college. Also, my friend from Panama mentioned how in most of Latin America, Catholicism is the religion of choice for about 85% of its population.

There are many different things that people from all around the world can learn from each other. I know for a fact that having this abroad experience is helping me to learn more about different societies even the ones I have never even stepped on. I have grown so much as a person and I expect to keep doing so.

As International students, it doesn’t matter where you are from or where you are, share who you are and represent your country!
