This iReport is part of an assignment:
Why study abroad? Ask Michelle Obama
What struck you the most?
I am a Nigerian who studied in the United Kingdom and now works in New York. I would like to think i have experienced culture shock and understand the whole study abroad and cultural exchange dynamic.
What struck me the most was the difference from my preconceived notions of each country as opposed to the reality. Some things came as a pleasant surprise and some not so much. Each country is different and special in its own way; the culture, the people, the diversity, the systems... all intriguing, all beautifique!
