My name is Arren Abunal and I am 21 years old. I am the eldest of four and my country of origin is the Philippines. I grew up in Virginia and I have lived here since I was eight years old. I am very active at church and I love to volunteer in my community. Aside from going to school and church, I also work at an Italian restaurant as a hostess. I am currently majoring in Nursing and minoring in Psychology, hence why I am taking this course. I chose to take cross-cultural psychology because I love learning about different cultures aside from my own. I am hoping that in this course I will be more exposed to the various cultures around the world so that I can be a well knowledgeable individual.
