Multicultural organizations should respect students’ cultural autonomy by not assuming they’re interested just because they come from a shared background.
Everything is good in moderation, even politics. But rarely do I hear students wanting to compromise or engage with people they don’t agree with.
Students should learn more about the heartland before they make assumptions about the people who live there.
For students from more rural areas, or with financial responsibilities, taking on an internship isn’t feasible – and that’s OK.
