In the past three weeks, I have had enough new experiences to last me for at least three years, if not more. There's one thing I still haven't quite gotten used to here. Even though I live in Toronto these days, where I'm used to walking amongst crowds of people with different backgrounds, homelands and skin tones, I've never really experienced life as a minority. And I am starting to realize what an incredibly valuable experience this is.
