Broward: Japan & Singapore - Business Culture of Asia

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
learned so much from the culture while visiting. To witness a people display the upmost respect for the rules and laws presented was nothing less than astonishing to me; partly due to the way things are in the U.S. majority of people will do the crime because they know it’s a chance of not getting caught or we just simply do whatever we want because we can but in Singapore the people showed refinement and were prideful of abiding by the law. I mean even to not crossing the street during a red light as to not jay walk. Asian culture also holds education to the highest degree. They still mandate school uniforms throughout high school. I for one find this refreshing because it shows kids focus on learning and not being a fashion fiasco. I have experiences that will last me a lifetime. It makes me appreciate my country as well opens me up to absorbing more societies outside of my own. Thank you again Broward College.
