A Libyan Student Travels to Other Cultures, VirtuallyFebruary 15, 2021
Fall 2019 Connect Program alumna Hanan Mahmoud, from the University of Benghazi in Libya, authored an article on Al-Fanar Media about her virtual exchange experience with Soliya. "The safe environment of the intercultural dialogue in Soliya’s Connect Program made me gain some of the most valuable skills I possess. I became more open-minded and predisposed to accept different opinions. I learned during the dialogues to listen actively and to be understanding of my peers’ views and experiences. I learned to challenge my assumptions and to try to understand the personal background that has formed my views." Read her article here in English or here in Arabic.
