HOW THE WORLD SEES US
Meredith's friend, Ying, was gracious enough to interpret for us at CSE. We had a Chinese student transfer to school this year who read and writes English, but does not speak English. When I started looking for an someone to interpret, of course, Meredith knew someone. Ying has been in the states for two years and is working on her MBA at the local university. I invited her for supper after she came and helped at CSE as repayment for her kindness. We had such an interesting evening and it was eye opening to hear how the world sees us as Americans. I don't think I will share all she said, but I will say there are many students from many countries here in America. Get connected to one-and learn. It was an quite an evening!
