Day One: I had many expectations of coming to The Global Ethics and Conflict Resolution Summer Symposium at UT. All of them were wrong. I expected to not make new friends, or to be surrounded by people I had nothing in common with. But as it turns out they’re all just like me, and also very unique in their own ways. I have learned already so much just from this one day, and have already had a change of mind on multiple things. I have made so many friends that are interested in some of the things I am, for instance in politics and world wide conflicts. I hope the rest of this week is just as interesting and hope learn more things that I am going to need in the future.
