My Cultural Experience
By Adrianna Stanley
I've been doing robotics for 3 years now. For two of those years I had a coach from Russia. This was an amazing learning experience for me. At first understanding his voice was kind of difficult for me, and I know for him he had difficulty understanding all of our many holidays and our culture. Although understanding him was sometimes hard, working with him was quite easy because he was just like everyone else, he just has a different background.
Working with him benefited me in the long run because since he has been my coach I have met people with different accents and understanding them is easier since I've already had to learn how to understand someone who speaks like them
