Race, Ethnicity and Nationality
Race and ethnicity abroad are often perceived differently than in the U.S. While abroad, you may have different experiences with your racial and ethnic identity(ies) than you do at home.
You may experience being in the minority or majority for the first time, encounter different perspectives of what it means to be from the U.S., or have stereotypes (both positive and negative) placed upon you.
While everyone’s experience is different, preparing yourself ahead of time and knowing which resources are available can be helpful.
