Was I in petite Olympic ?
Last week I had the graduate student orientation program and a lot of events in University of Miami. It was quite an unique experience. In all of these activities I had the chance of meeting a lot of students from over 50 countries. It was a vast diverse community which consist of student's who are pursing studies to become film directors, actors, micro biologists, lawyers, singers, composers, doctors, business administrators, physicians, engineers, scientists, and many more. When we were travelling to University's president house, one of my newly formed friend from Cuba got a call and she said "I met a lot of interesting people from Sri Lanka, China, Russia,.." and the first response she got was, "Are you in Olympics ?". At that time it hit me that this is a form of Olympic, where students from all over the world try to excel themselves to become the pioneers in their respective areas. There are so many things to be explored and I am just started to do so.
