It shouldn't be a surprise to find out that the education we were constantly taught during our childhoods about the world was filtered through trends, politics and, in some cases, the dominant religion of our home nation. As a result, many of us start off with a worldview that was designed to uphold the values of our home nation. In some nations, this created a veil over the eyes of its population that may later lead to a fear of people and cultures that differ from their own.
When expats venture abroad and find out that the local population they live among daily or the culture they have been immersed in don't adhere to what they were taught in their home nation, they begin to reevaluate their views of the world and it's people. In some cases, this re-examination causes some expats to raise deep concerning questions about both their home and host nation.
All of the above has much to do with the discoveries made by our guest. We are honored to have American expat Chloé Skye on the podcast this episode. Chloé is joining us from Brno, Czech Republic. Chloé has done some cools things. She was a Fulbright recipient and English Teaching Assistant (ETA) in a small town outside of Brno, Czech Republic (Click this link to a wonderful article about Chloé). She enjoys traveling, learning languages and performs spoken word poetry! Hear what cultural discoveries this New Yorker made which caused her to re-examine the way she views the world.
MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:
