Students who are seeking international experiences as a way to explore their own roots are considered heritage seekers. Their experiences with a certain culture give them a unique perspective and can serve as an advantage in their immersion experience, and while most heritage seekers are invested emotionally and intellectually in their host country/homeland, some may neglect to consider the negative impacts of their perceived familiarity with the culture. Join us for this special brief where we discuss this somewhat invisible identity and the benefits and barriers a heritage seeker can encounter while navigating abroad. RSVP @ https://myumi.ch/88rvK
