There is an ocean of cultures out there in the world that we have yet to experience in terms of customs, traditions and even businesses for that matter. Opportunities are not only confined to one country. It is also important to be aware of one's own culture before venturing out to experience other cultures. Understanding and respecting a culture plays a big role in knowing how and why things are the way they are in the country.
What I found most rewarding about this program was experiencing first hand all of the differences between China and the United States. Another great part about this program was the opportunities to bond with fellow classmates and instructors.
Visiting the Great Wall of China was so much fun!
