Being at the University of Michigan I have had the opportunity to meet many wonderful international students from various cultural backgrounds. With my lifelong goal of someday going to Japan and possibly teaching there, I wanted to be able to learn from people different from myself.
Additionally, I Intercultural leadership always desired to be a inclusive educator to every student I encounter. Therefore, it was imperative for me to understand different perspectives and norms from my own.
One of the most important skills I learned at ILS was being able to take into consideration how different backgrounds and what we assume to be normal in our home country can influence how we view things. Also, at Michigan I have met a international student from China who has now become a very close friend of mine.
In the beginning, she and I had certain issues with communication because of the different social norms America and China have.
I particularly hope to remain open minded, patient and understanding when dealing with issues of miscommunication. While I expect it to be more like leadership team building workshop, it happens to be personal value reflection, with a bonus of inspirations.
I am fortunate enough to meet a very diverse, yet like-minded group of student in ILS. Although we are from different background and level in education, I am very glad that we are still keeping contact.
Despite the fact that I am a graduate student, being a new comer to the University, ILS workshop has expose me to a sneak peak of the extent of inclusiveness the school community and potential work environment in the US. With the influence of social media and technology today, human behaviors are more alike, partly due to globalization.
However, due to the fact that we are born and raised in different cultures, we tend to react slightly different in different circumstances. Through the interaction and discussion in the one-day workshop, I am more aware of the differentiation among us.
The undergraduate participants are very energetic and reminded me of the passion I used to have. Thus, I have also learnt from other post-graduate participant about priceless opportunities they encountered during their pursuit of academic success.
All the stories that I heard are very inspiring, and it excite me further excel my potential with resources and opportunities at University of Michigan. I have also learned to reassess myself through the process and remember to take a step back and breathe when I feel on edge.
I challenge myself to find connections with people whom I may consider different than me. It is rare to be in environment where people are open so quickly…I realized how often I stay in my comfort zone and how I must miss so many opportunities to interact with people and grow.
The tips provided for the critical moment dialogue are very helpful and i personally believe that i could use them in several situations to great effect. Despite my familiarity and experience with the subject I still felt like it was valuable and provides me concentrated time to reflect within a useful framework.
