Explore, understand and be wise.
Just graduated!!!!!! Woohooo! I am very interested in foreign cultures, and until being overburdened with philosophy coursework, I enjoyed that too. I read a lot of alternative religious and philosophy books (great fan of Buber, Levinas, Nietzsche, Confucius and Sartre)and I consider myself very open-minded. I give anyone a chance, and try not to judge people based on where they come from.
I'm very adventurous, and love challenges, especially if they involve having to learn random languages to get by in a place.
Treat everyone equally and with respect, and be open to different cutures no matter how strange they may seem...
