What I’ve Learned #2: Sameness

No matter the culture or country, as people, we are all the same.

I learned this after participating in a large EU-funded project with Turkey. I had an amazing time, learned a lot, and met some incredible friends that I will keep forever. But after working with some of the students from Turkey, I realized that culture or country do not matter when it comes to being able, or unable, to work with a person. It comes down to much more important elements of a person, such as morals, ethics, drive, focus, humor, or experience. For those reasons, I worked with some amazing people even though our backgrounds and cultures were widely different.
