Muhibbah Club Leads International Education Week
International Education Week (IEW), November 18-22, 2019, was arranged by Muhibbah Club in Lenfest Lobby. IEW is an initiative of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education, which provides an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of International education and exchange worldwide. International education is about the mobility of students who travel to another part of the world to study. The primary goal of International Education Week is to enable students to learn about places and cultures, and to help them to gain intercultural skills in the process. First, Sam Worthen prepared a poster presentation of Canada. He showed beautiful places in Canada, as well as its 10 provinces and capitals.
International education has existed throughout time, and it has allowed people (including myself) to seek education to better their lives. I did my community service at Fulton Farm where I learned many farming techniques that I will share with people back home in order to contribute to the community. I presented two beautiful cultural traditions of Pakistan, which were Henna and Chai. I made chai because it is one of the most famous traditions in my country; whole families sit together in the evening and have chai together and share their feelings, desires, and daily routine. It strengthens the ties of family bonding and love.
According to George Bernard, “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
There are many international students at Wilson that bring diverse foods that vary between country to country. Caitlin Maguire made an Irish dessert and James Pasaribu made Indonesian Soto. IEW is a good platform to explore yummy foods from different countries as well.
