Community of Difference Contribution and Global Citizens
Every human being has a part which is global. It only takes a person to assess their life, be familiar with its universal dimension, and contemplate on how that has an effect on the word view (Cabrera, 2010). This paper will discuss how I will contribute to a community of difference and how these interactions, with different people, cultures, politics, and ideas, will contribute to my ability to become a global citizen. There are a number of ways I will contribute to a community of difference. One, I will adopt a knowledgeable and diverse view of the world. I will develop a theoretical framework which informs the manner in which I look at the universe. I will employ this framework to contrast and assess scientific and technological, political, environmental, cultural, historical, and economic improvements in diverse parts of the world. Through interaction with different people and ideas, I will no longer perceive the globe using a single cultural lens and I will also have the capacity to recognize and grasp a number of viewpoints. While I will be familiar with and value the cultural differences, I will also be aware of the rising interconnectivity of the globe and of the necessity of my capacity to operate within it (Pike & Selby, 2000). Also, my interactions with different ideas, politics, cultures, and people may develop through foreign language courses, general education offerings, and study abroad programs.
