Siobhan Davis - Podcast 2: The People in Kuala Lumpur and their Perceptions of Canada

Post type: 
Blog post

In this podcast, I ask people I know who live in Kuala Lumpur the same questions I asked the clients of MSRI. As the locals and 'expats' of Kuala Lumpur have a very different legal and positional status but are sharing the same space, it is interesting to see how the answers are similar and how they are different when specific questions are asked.

Siobhan Davis - Blog Post 2: Merrymaking

Post type: 
Blog post

For this next blog, I have chosen to write about some of my experiences with my unaccompanied minor students, who have grown to become some of my closest friends. The event I will be discussing pertains to a dinner I had at my house a few weeks ago, and how I feel this can contribute to my Capstone Project as well as improving relations and understandings between 'foreign' people with 'different' values and traditions.

Thanks for reading and I welcome any feedback!

Siobhan Davis - Podcast 2: Perspectives on Canada's Reputation (I)

Post type: 
Blog post

A recent survey by the Reputation Institute deemed Canada to be the country with the best reputation in the world (Reputation Institute). Although I feel as though I am very lucky to be born in Canada and have a home there, I don't necessarily agree that Canada should be considered the country that is most admirable and reputable. I suppose I fall into the category of Canadians that are "among the most self-critical", on a scale of "how residents of a country felt about their own reputation versus how others saw it" (CBC).
