Interviewing Dr. Lim reminded me why Americans have such a bad wrap on the international level. We are quick to judge, the first to jest when someone doesn’t abide by our social norms, and one of the least welcoming societies. Dr. Lim made a great point after the interview and that was how it’s funny a culture founded on being strangers in a new place, and having no REAL natives, can have so many close-minded individuals.
Interviews like these give me an appreciation for… interviews like these. I’m always caught up in my own rat race and don’t really take the time to notice those that may really need a hand. With the upcoming holidays, let’s make an effort to help others out and pay it forward.
