Foreign Exchange students give presentation as part of International Education Week

Education

It is International Education Week.

Foreign exchange students in our area and around the county are giving presentations all week. 

The exchange students are teaching their new fellow classmates about their culture and their homeland. 

At Bridgeport High School, a student from Tunisia gave his presentation to the entire student body. 

“I identify from Africa but I also identify as an Arab. A lot of people have this wrongful idea about Muslims being terrorists and being violent and everything but then people get to meet you and get to find out that you are actually a nice person and that you are peaceful. That is the amazing thing about being able to break the stereotype,” said Mohamed Ben Fredj, an exchange student from Tunisia. 

A student from Ghana and one from West Bank gave presentations to students at Nutter Fort Intermediate School.
