To celebrate the diversity of international students at Brock, the university hosts an annual event called the Celebration of Nations. In this event international students representing their country of origin set up a display table consisting of a display board, food and artifacts from the host nation.
This year I had the privilege to host my native country, Bangladesh. We put on our national clothing, played a video and served some traditional sweets. It was wonderful to explain to others my identity and interesting to learn about other countries, cultures and students at Brock.
The highlight of the event was the cultural show from various nations. The show really represented the richness of other cultures and we celebrated our student body’s diversity without having to travel beyond our campus in St. Catharines, Ontario.
