a Global Citizen- How does one become a citizen of the world.
The only way is to experience a different culture is by living in
them. There is often not a right or wrong way to do a thing but a
different way. Looking at problems with new angles and perception to
derive a solution is a big part of being an educator and also the
first steps in becoming a Global Citizen. Kent State -Buenos Aires
will give you the opportunity to be Porteños (What Buenos Aires's
residents call themselves since they reside in a major port city).
Many people may visit Buenos Aires as "tourist" but to experience
being a Porteños one must live day to day life in the city as a
local. To walk the city streets, ride public transportation, take a
taxi, have your favorite cafe, and to start to recognizing your
surrounding. That point that you smile and start saying "Hola" on
the street to people you see each day. To be able to discover new
foods. Many foods you will wonder how you lived without them and few
maybe were not your favorite. As a "Global Citizen" you became an
explorer and you tried new things and new food! There are few things
in life that you know before you start, that you will talk about and
refer back to the rest of your life. Kent State -Buenos Aires
teaching is one of them!
