Human Family


As I was turning on my ePodium and preparing for today’s lecture, I greeted one of my students as she walked in class. I work to make eye contact and speak to each of my students as they walk through the door. Today was no different.

I get inspired by my students’ wardrobe choices and love watching how they express themselves. Today brought a bit of a shock though.

I’ve seen a millennial sporting a RUN DMC t-shirt on the streets of Hangzhou, China.

I’ve seen breakdancing at a restaurant in Laos.

I’ve even heard this phrase while walking down the street in Sydney, Australia.

But, I wasn’t expecting to see it or hear it in my classroom in Saudi Arabia.
