what is an interculturalist? i help to:

  • build and cross the (shortest) bridge between cultures
  • make sense of the unknown in a new environment
  • understand the unique set of norms and behaviours within a specific culture
  • show that our own concept of “normal” is not always others “normal”
  • develop strategies and practical skills to operate more efficiently and balanced

“all beginnings are difficult”.
