My experience in Norway

Image
My experience in Norway has been very interesting, I have met a lot of amazing people, learned a lot about development and aid all over the world. before I came to Norway I didn't know much about the Norwegian culture, language or food, but staying here for 10 months has enriched my views on different people from different cultures all over the world. I met people from Tanzania, Kenya, Nepal, Brazil, France, Madagascar and Israel, I also met some people from my own lovely country Uganda. While living here I learned how to live with so many people with different views on life, how to compromise and how to just enjoy the differences between people. I now admire different cultures and find them very interesting, because I can truly say that I have learned a lot from my fellow friends from all over the world.

The far it went in the space it started bouncing hits the space and shaking then I said to my self “ am dying” and I was thinking how can I call my parent home to tell her my last word th…

My personal reflection being on an exchange in Norway.

Being on an exchange in Norway has not left me the same in some aspects of life. I have learnt a lot that even when I start narrating I don’t want to stop. Norway is a country where things that seem to be impossible in my eyes are possible to Norwegians as well as the things I thought are miracles only made by God are made by people instead. For example, the behaviors of people, their way of living is so amazing and interesting from my own observation, while at Hald International Center in Mandal, people respect each other’s views, whereby from the top most ranks (principle and teachers) of the school to the bottom(students) every person is respected. For example, the principle of the school asks for evaluation from all the students in case there is anything to change, not waiting only for the teachers reports. Eating on the same table both students, teachers and the principle of the school, those things caught my interests and attentions a lot, meaning everyone is important and helpfu…
