That’s not a Stereotype… That’s True.

On Thursday, September 24, Dr. Sun-A Lee guest spoke at my international public relations class. Dr. Sun-A Lee works at Georgia Southern University in the Child and Family Development department. Dr. Lee is from South Korea but graduated from the University of Arizona.

The first thing I have to say is Dr. Lee was and still is probably the best guest speaker I have ever had. After giving us facts about immigration and the world population she confronted us head on about different cultures.

Dr. Lee explained the the whole existence of cultures comes from the act of survival. From cultures we talked about ethnocentrism, racism, prejudice, and stereotypes. The best part of Dr. Lee’s was that she was not shy when it came to talking about stereotypes within her own culture or stereotypes that she had of Americans. stereotypes

It was a breath of fresh air to hear someone so direct and honest talking to us. She broke down barriers and kept us entertained throughout the entire class period.
