- Meet with people who espouse other views.
- Meet with people of different cultural backgrounds.

Life-long Learning Statement
As a result of the experiences documented by these artifacts, I will continue to develop in cultural engagement by continuing to get to know and understand and meet people on equal ground understanding people as people and not as a sum of stereotypes and tendencies.
