Can't believe it's been five months since I first contributed to Indonesia Mengglobal. Earlier in the week, they published my latest piece on being different in school. Yeah, yeah, what's so special about that? Well, funnily enough, in a school whose motto is "You're different, so are we..." I still managed to go through some pretty awkward situations, even to this day. For me, personally, it is because I am Asian, and oftentimes the only Asian in the room. Furthermore, I come from an "obscure" country in Asia called Indonesia.
There are only two or three Indonesian students at Sarah Lawrence, how much support can one get? So much for Indo Mie parties, right? Anyways, I thought that it would helpful to whip up some sort of list intended for those who experience the same situation. Feeling different is a part of life, a very normal part of life, but there are still strategies to overcome and make the best of it.
