Other country booths for Nigeria, Italy, Barbados and New Zealand were also busy with people, interacting with students, providing traditional food and have fun activities for people to understand different cultures with a new global perspective.
#HumberIEW was very successful due to the hard work and efforts that Humber’s international ambassadors /advisors put in to make IEW fun and engaging! The International Centre team knows how important it is for students to embrace new cultures, food, people and languages with an open minded attitude. In order to learn, people should accept differences that other countries have, because that makes our world interesting and adventurous. In the end, all countries are unique in their own way; therefore, it is up to us to respect and understand difference to make the world a better place.
