It was a great start and an ongoing amazing exchange experience, I participated in the International Education Week (IEW) which this totally changed me. I gave a presentation in Jackson Liberty High School (hosting school) through a live telecast channel of my school and also with the help of the school board. Around 1800 students plus 150 teachers were a part of the presentation in my country at the same time. IEW for me was not just sharing my culture but was also a platform to make friends and sort out the stereotypes about my country (India). There were so many students in my school who came up to me with questions and queries, it was my pleasure to clarify.
