Hi! And welcome to The United Nations of UMD blog! We are Abby and Sade, and we’ve created this blog in order to make students more aware of the diverse and culturally rich community on our very own campus. We plan on doing this by interviewing and photographing students, faculty and professors that have traveled from their homeland to learn, study and teach. We will be focusing on the changes that they have experienced with food, culture, and everyday life. As well as drawing attention to the everyday challenges that students face from different countries, that we take for granted, including the factor of culture shock.
