This week our university hosted their annual Global Days event. This is a cultural event were all the student groups have their own booths. The purpose is for each student group to display their culture through clothing, food, and props. Many groups also preform traditional dances. I was really excited for the event and on the plus side, I was helping out at the Somali booth!

Overall, I had a great time at Global Days! I learned so much about other cultures and had the opportunity to taste lots of foods. Amazing event!
