Nowadays students go on lots of school trips and receive grants to study abroad and come in touch with other cultures.
I believe we are very lucky because it is always good to meet people from other countries. If you are tolerant, a mixture of different people is always a benefit.
As I see it, knowing more about the customs of another country will give you a global vision of the world and I feel that learning something new is very satisfactory.
It seems to me that meeting people with different beliefs from mine is also good because it will give you a more open mind. In addition, perhaps this person can convince you and make you change your mind.
In conclusion I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to enjoy the diversity of identities in the world and take advantage of it.
