GWCCA Cultural Exchange Experience

IMG_1124During the summer, the campus of the Georgia World Congress Center Authority host interns from Hong Kong and during the same time, participates in both City of Atlanta and Fulton County Summer Youth Enrichment programs. Last week, the interns and the summer youth got together for an educational Cultural Exchange Experience.

Students lead the discussions, which included perspectives and the sharing of information such as differences between the American/Chinese Family, Education, Food, Pop Culture and Stereotypes.  All of the students were given an opportunity to share stories and experiences that contributed to their knowledge of each other. By the end of the experience, all of the students were thinking of ways that our cultures can continue to come together and learn from one another.
