Diversity

Diversity in cultures, in nations, in colors, in races, in everything except one: humanity. I am so excited being among international students, as I'm one of them. When you are among lots of international people, you can feel peace; you can fully understand how people all around the world can live with each other with peace. I have several international friends from: India, Turkey, China, Russia, France, Kenya, Pakistan, UAE and etc.

Your words are beautiful, Meead. And am I correct in that I once again see the Chinese girl you photographed a few posts back? She's toward the right of the photo carrying the green folder as before. Have you learned her name yet or spoken to her?

Also, Meead, I wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed reading your blog and seeing how you've adjusted to life in the U.S. and at university. Keep up the good work and your studies!

I also noticed the girl with the green folder again!!!

Meead, your post is absolutely beautiful. I'm so happy for you. One of the reasons I so dearly love the entire greater Los Angeles region is because of its amazing diversity.

Looks like you are embracing your new life with lots of enthusiasm Meead! Fantastic. Also Sara is doing a great job keeping your old site up to the high standards you set!

It's good to hear that there is a healthy mix of people. I always enjoyed the new intake at my university, if only because I could always snare a few wickets when Swedes, Japanese, Germans etc were goaded into joining the cricket team! :)

It is good to see such diveristy. Not only will the studies be educational but the excnages betewwn the students of their identity. It must be so exciting.

My favourite part of diversity is talking with people and learning about their background, culture, and lives. Isn't that just so much fun?!? You've been given a great opportunity. Enjoy it!
