The Virginia Commonwealth University students spoke about their intimate details living in Amercia.
One of them spoke in the video saying how important it is for Saudi students to engage in talks and communicate properly with Americans. He elaborates by saying that different cultures require communication in order to reach some sort of understanding.
Another student said it is important that you don’t take your information from TV, you should not be judgmental, explaining that many Americans are cultured.
Weal Al-Eid spoke, one of the students in the video, spoke to Al Arabiya from Richmond, Virginia saying: “Our goal from this video is to show Americans that we are just like any other people from any other nationality, we are simple and we have our own problems.”
Eid, who was born in the U.S. but later returned to Saudi Arabia as a child, added: “For me the experience is different, I feel part of the American community, I speak like them because I lived some of my childhood in America, I barely feel like a foreigner
He, jokingly, concluded: “I always feel I am an American until my classmates and professors start trying to pronounce my name.”
