身份 & 出国留学

许多因素可能会影响你在国外的经历, including your nationality; religious, racial or ethnic 遗产; gender; 性取向; mobility; accessibility 和 disability; 和 personality. Attitudes toward women 和 minority groups vary greatly across cultures, 性别认同和性取向方面的经历也是如此. In some cultures you may experience being in the minority (that is, (外国人)或第一次占多数.
