Between my friends and host families all over the globe, and my work and research on gender ‘equality’, I’ve probably scratched the surface of more perspectives on life (first-hand) than one could imagine. While I haven’t spent enough time in any one place to have a deeper understanding of many cultural intricacies, I am comfortable making informed generalizations; many people have shared their philosophies and challenges with me, curious to exchange perspectives and to hear how people consider quality of life and relationships in other parts of the world.

Through this blog, I will extract universal themes from conversations in regions as diverse as Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, hoping to see us not only share our ideas about what we feel and value in life, but to reflect and understand why these ideas can sometimes conflict with our actions.
