International Bazaar

This semester I also attended the international bazaar. It was held on the South Oval and comprised of different international student organizations selling and showing various trinkets and cultural icons from their respective countries. It was exciting to see aspects of different culture like fashion or jewelry along with language and art in one small area where people from all kinds of different backgrounds have come together. Enjoying different cultures is something that I think that a lot of people here take for granted, as it was only possible for these cultures to have influence here due to the work that immigrants put in in order to become established citizens of the country. While I and many others don’t consider it daily, stepping back shows how incredible it is that people from so many different cultures, especially those that originated in an isolated setting across the globe, have traveled here and allowed themselves to be enjoyed by people who otherwise would have never had that experience.
