Expanding Worldview -- The American Sentiment:
While preparing to go to Ireland, I realized that many countries don’t have the best outlook on Americans due to some of our stereotypes and the Anti-American sentiment. Although I heard everyone in Ireland was very friendly, I was still a little nervous to see how we would be treated due to us being from America. Once we were in Ireland, I was very shocked to how genuine and kind each person we came in contact with was. Everyone was always happy to help if we needed directions, and every person I met was extremely friendly and loved to hear about America and where we were from. Being able to experience Ireland’s culture and amazing people has been something I will always remember!
