Since my arrival, I’ve had the opportunity to experience the Hong Kong culture through my everyday routine. Eating, walking, and partying has never been so intriguing. The population of 7 million contributes to one of the most densely populated areas in the world! Unfortunately, due to the massive population, many families and animals live in crowded and unsafe areas. In a city with more Louis Vuitton shops than Paris, individuals who live in poverty do their best to provide for their family. I admire the people of Hong Kong for their hard work and dedication. For support, I choose to shop at small local markets and volunteer at Homeless food shelters. I would recommend future study abroad participants to seek opportunities that will contribute to the growth of the community, by participating one gains a deep understanding of the country’s culture.
