Anyway, we love to have conversations about the difference between Asian culture and American culture. Sometimes we discuss in good way but also we argue with them. After all, America is one of the developed countries, and lots of issues deserve we to think about.
We both feel most of Americans know nothing about Asian culture. Although they saw the some news about Asian culture, they still can't tell the difference between Taiwanese or Chinese. lol. (If I said I am Taiwanese, people will treat me nicer here.) But, it's understandable, for example, even sometimes east coast don't know about west coast, vice versa. I would say because of Hollywood movies and TV dramas. Most of Asians know about American on certain level. We embrace diverse culture and hope to study aboard if we have chance. To learn more perspectives from westerners. So, I suggest maybe you will want to watch some Asian movie or dramas. It will help you understand Asian culture more. And I believe you definitely will love our food. :)
Because of the education, we both think Asians are more likely to be lack of confidence about ourselves. American education emphasizes more on encouragement than score. Asian kids got scores when they did something wrong. Sonia and I both agreed that American are more confident which is good, because that makes you comfortable with doing everything and success.
All of cultures have their own unique spirit. It will be really nice if we understand each other. :)

Hello everyone, I am Lucas, an intern at ChicagoPride.com.
From today, I start to write the blog. Hope you will like it and please leave
your comments to encourage me! You will know real Lucas here.
When Matt asked me about what kind of topic I want to write
about, I decide to write about my life in Chicago and culture difference
between United States and Taiwan, my hometown. (Hope someone won’t think Taiwan
is Thailand or China, because I met a person who really thought Taiwan is
Thailand. I even heard that Taiwan is in Japan which is ridiculous!!! ) It’s
exciting but also a little bit worried about myself because I am an
international student and still having language barrier. But anyway, I think I
will overcome it. Just need to be positive, and your encouragements are also
the power keeping me to write this blog.
