Although I was worried about whether I could make friends, I was happy to be able to make new friends quickly. There are many chances to interact with international students who live in the dorm, and our exchange is still ongoing even after they went back to their home countries. I realized how hard it was to understand the people who have different cultural backgrounds while I live with them in the dorm. Also the dorm life made me realize what I lack.
For me, the dorm life gave a precious opportunity to break down stereotypes and to gain a new sense of value.
