Culture isn’t something you see or hear about, rather it’s something you experience and then treasure the rest of your life. Culture is the food you taste. It’s the firsthand roads you travel and the experiences that pave your future. Culture is the people you meet and the smiles you exchange. It’s more than simply a group of people living in a country, and it’s more than a definition a textbook or a story someone tells you. Culture is something you have to go experience yourself in order to interpret it, so the only way to understand “what is culture?” is to experience it yourself and then share your experiences with the world.
