What have you learned while living in the US?

“Oh, so many things. The most important thing that I enjoy is that I see the differences in culture between mine and the culture here and I am able to kind of pick the parts that I like. You grow up doing something a certain way and then you see that there are many ways to do the same thing. You realize that there is no right and wrong. You can pretty much choose how you want to be. So yes, I guess living in another country helps you really find yourself and free yourself up from pre-conceptions you got growing up somewhere… What I’ve learned about myself is how you view and understand others in the world and how you interact with them. ”- Jason Amoratis (Jason moved to North Carolina from Athens two years ago)
