“The communication test is an exciting and educating part. We are asked interview strangers on campus about their opinions for certain problems. It’s sometimes astonishing to find out how differently people think  when we have different cultural backgrounds. Also, we need a lot of courage to speak to strangers. I find myself more confident and outgoing after these activities.”
