Intellectual Wellness

Dimension: Intellectual
Activity: Meet, Eat, & Learn
Wednesday, February 8th at 12pm

Last Wednesday I attended my first Meet, Eat, and Learn session at the International Centre. Prior to the event, I knew this month’s speaker was going to be Amoussa Koriko who was going to speak on the common misconceptions/challenges refugees faced when coming in the Grand Forks area. I knew a bit about the topic as we had just discussed this briefly in a social work class after a news article was written in the Grand Forks Herald about the topic recently. However, I was curious to hear Amoussa’s insights on the subject. The presentation was interesting as well as hearing others in the audience ask what they themselves could do to make the transition easier for refugees coming into this community.  We can be open to listen and learn about someone elses culture, this will build relationships and respect for eachother in the process. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation as this topic is relevant in our community today.
