International Friendship Fair

Author: Amy Juhnke

International Friendship Fair is a program presented by the ISU YWCA that has been held since 1992. It offers a unique opportunity for community members and ISU international students to dispel stereotypes and gain a better intercultural understanding of one another. During the event, international volunteers share their cultures in a fun and educational atmosphere during their presentations. 

There are seven countries’ representatives for this upcoming International Friendship Fair, and they are from Malaysia, India, China, Brazil, Columbia, Nigeria, Philippines. They will share their cultures with the audience with a white display board of colored pictures to introduce their country location, native attire, historical and world-famous places, instruments, food, and more! They will end their presentation with an engaging activity to engage the audience. Once you finish checking out every country, you will get a prize at the end!
