    Why study abroad? Ask Michelle Obama

    Women of Color Abroad

     
    My roommate will be studying aboard this summer. While she is excited to embark on this new learning experience, she has a few qualms due to the stereotypes the media perpetuates. Although one of the best ways to dispel stereotypes is through travel and knowledge, our biggest worry is being young women of color in an unknown country.

    My question is," as a woman of color, how would you suggest handling a situation where negative stereotypes may arise?"

    Best Regards,
    Aitza
