Today was my first day of classes! It was awesome to have so many international students in the class! It will be interesting to discuss potential differences and similarities in marketing on a global level. In addition, in the beginning of the class I added to the discussion and my professor stopped me. He explained that he noticed a lot of Americans answering questions and believes that the states do a great job preparing their students for public speaking and leadership roles. He told the class that everyone could learn from and notice this in the American students! Although we have been highlighting how the victory scholars will be changing lives on the basketball court, it is cool to see that we will be holding a leadership role in the classroom as well!
During our class, we were separated into groups in order to complete a month long project! In my group of 6 students, I am the only person with English as a first language. First of all, my group partners inspire me to learn another language. It is amazing that they’re proficient enough in a second language to obtain their masters. I am extremely impressed. That being said, it is a bit difficult for us to understand each other clearly. We must repeat ourselves numerous times and explain what we mean frequently. Although this is a challenge it is a challenge that we are overcoming as a team. We all have the desire to complete the assignment receiving a high grade, and we take the time needed to achieve this!
