Europe and Me - Lauren
Datum događanja: 01/05/2018
Lauren’s vantage-point on Europe is that of a non-European. Of Asian origin - a combination of Japanese and Chinese parents that migrated to Canada, she has lived in Europe thanks to an Erasmus-Mundus program. She explains how in Asia they admire Europe for being a place where a person can preserve a unique cultural identity tied to him or her. She reflects on how people in the European countries she has lived in feel both connected to their region’s culture and to Europe: ‘it’s admirable to see the cultural diversity being preserved but at the same time feeling connected to your neighbours’.
