  1. This is Qiuyu.

    After attending Haris' presentation, I learned some new things that are the differences of foods, collage family, clothes, etc. I thought Pakistan's foods are similar with Asian's, however, it is not, Haris said french fried or others are similer with american's. Additionally, clothes are very different with I thought. There are many kinds of clothes in male and female. Although I could not distinguish them but those clothes are beautiful and handsome for female and male. I am happy to know more new about Pakistan.

    I had a stereotype of Pakistan before I listened to his presentation like Mexico is a nation of gangs and corruption. The general thinking about it was completely changed after I met my roommate, Miguel, from Mexico. I was wrong. What I learned from this presentation was their way of thinking. I thought Muslims are not familiar to other religious people. Also, I thought their view of women were far from modern, which acknowledge the right of all human kind. Based on my memory, there was a script that discriminate women in Coran, which is Muslims' bible. However, there was always room for thinking differently like Pakistan people. It is just based on my memory. I do not want to offend people. I just think that people are adapt to their own circumstances and make their own culture if it is not apt to current view. They are more open-minded than people from other country. Additionally, the education system was intriguing because it was entirely different from my country.

    1. Arthur, I am so pleased to read that through Haris' presentation some of your stereotypes were dispelled. It is so valuable for us to learn, first hand, from people. It sounds like you have had a lot of interesting experiences with people from different countries this semester. I am glad to hear about it!

  3. This is Chiaki Shinoda

    I did not know a lot about Pakistan until attending Haris' presentation. I thought there is just one kind of language, but in fact, there is two kinds of languages. Pakistan people can understand each other, and I thought that it is similar with Chinese such as mandarin and Cantonese. In addition, I knew that there are many historical buildings and delicious foods. I want to go to there if I have the chance.
