Would You Study Abroad?!
I think most of us will have seen that advert about studying abroad and how it can and most of the time does change you! It got me thinking, would you (or are you going to) study abroad at any point in your life? As someone who will (God willing) be traveling to the UK alone next year to receive an undergraduate degree, the thought of not studying abroad never crossed my mind! But the fear of losing the traditions and customs of my religion and culture never really worried me either!
I visited the UK recently and realized that there is a huge cultural shock not for me, but for people who have seen (and will see) Arabs in a certain manner and who are shocked when we do not appear in that way! Do you think that to fit in living in the USA or UK you need to change who you are? Will holding on to your roots make you unsociable?!
