Show Notes

If you are not growing in your knowledge, you are dying. Start small, easy, and fun to begin deepening your connection, and understanding about people that are different from you. Language and Names hold significant weight in our identity. Be intentional about connecting and learning the language of others.

Snippet from Dethra:

Start small, easy, and fun. Those are my three requirements. Small, easy, and fun. Let me tell you something. International people, not just Jamaicans, international people, when I tell you, we love a good party. There is no easy button for cross-cultural education. It just doesn’t exist. But go to a nice party, a nice event, and start to immerse yourself in those cultures. And you’ll be amazed at how you’re embraced, and how you’re given opportunities to create a deeper meaning and a deeper relationship just from that very small surface, party or event or cultural activity. You will be amazed at how they can lead to a whole new world for you.
