    12. 12. Advice for traveling abroad <ul><li>I remember feeling as though people judged me unfairly because of my nationality while traveling in eastern Europe b/c of my government’s military actions in Belgrade. The anger I felt toward them for judging me actually helped me. One must remember the gold rule of intercultural interaction: Don’t judge a person completely b/c of cultural stereotypes if you don’t want them to be equally critical of you. I now realize that no one is responsible for their government. We are all individuals and deserve to be evaluated on our own merits, not those of our elected officials. </li></ul>
