“Knowledge and values for success”

“LCC is a unique place where you get equipped not only for a profession but with values for life. Though I began my career as a PR manager in Poland, important life decisions brought me home to Shymkent. Using the knowledge and values instilled in us at LCC, my LCC roommate and I have since opened 8 coffee bars in Shymkent and sold over 15 franchises to other cities in Kazakhstan.”

Tolerance and Personal Development

2019-06-17

Beatriz Araujo, originally from Brazil, came to LCC International University as a Study Abroad student and eventually decided to transfer here as a full time student. This Spring, Beatriz graduated from LCC with a degree in International Business Administration. Over the time spent here, Beatriz learnt the beauty of diverse cultures, what it means to be tolerant, and how various challenges impact one’s growth.Faith – is really what convinced me to stay here. My relationship with God is very strong. When I first came to LCC as a Study Abroad for a semester, I felt God calling me to come back here and it was a lot of discourse. I did not want to leave all my family and friends back in the U.S., but because my faith is strong and I chose to listen to what God was telling me I decided to stay. I then went to Miesto Bažnyčia where someone was preaching. He/she was telling the exact message that you have to sometimes leave things behind, so that God can work in your life.Culture - here at LCC this idea of culture is expanded because you really are interacting with cultures that are completely different from one another. There are similarities in some cultures, but they all have their unique touch, and it is a very beautiful thing. I also think that this experience of dealing with people from different backgrounds enriches your life experience as well. You gain knowledge in how to interact and how to respect other cultures. Even in our context there have been disagreements between country to country, but when we come together in our university culture we are still a family, we are still accepting and loving and welcoming of each other.Tolerance – is not about agreeing, but it is about welcoming what you disagree with, learning from it, and embracing it. Tolerance is extremely important when we see many people from different backgrounds. You can disagree with what the best food is but you can still welcome their opinion and say “Ok, yes, hachapuri is the best food ever or cepelinai is the best food ever”. I might disagree with that because I have my bias about Brazilian food, but I can still accept that they love those meals. This is a very simple, maybe childish example, but this is what tolerance is in my understanding.Development – is a lifelong thing and it is never over. No matter where we are at, there will always be something to improve on. It is about understanding that there is always room for development. When I realized that I have so much growing and maturing to do I think that allowed me to take steps further towards my personal development. Challenges – they always exist in our lives no matter whether they are big or small. I think life is not life if everything is always perfect. Even if you have the perfect life of traveling and doing anything you want, you always face challenges like going to the hotel and your room was given away to someone else. We will always have challenges, but it is about how we overcome them that defines us and this is something that I feel people should focus more.

Accepting New Challenges and Opportunities

2019-06-14

Tianna Bruinsma from Canada thrives to experience new things and challenges in life. Moving to Lithuania has empowered Tianna to learn about new cultures and expand her worldview. Believing in self-development and creativity helped Tianna see beauty in small details and understand creativity from a different angle.Canada – I think about home, my family, freedom, opportunity and adventure. The ability to build relationships with people that are very different from you in various aspects. Building diverse friendships is a really big advantage of our country because we are free to say whatever we want, develop our own lifestyles, and live however we want. I also think of people who know that if you want to reach your goals, you have to work very hard, build connections with people, and branch out of your comfort zone.Change – I am always searching for new opportunities and new challenges, and that is why I came to Lithuania in the first place. I wanted to experience something new, and there is something so beautiful about that aspect of change. When you are leaving something behind, you are developing yourself in new ways, meeting new people, and you are opening a door for yourself, even though you might not know what is behind that door.Worldview – it has been difficult for me to grasp what it actually means. I think it is how you interpret the world around and how you perceive other people’s lifestyles. I have lived in very different cultures from my own and little pieces of those cultures are connected to my worldview now. It is important to be open-minded towards other worldviews. You will end up living with more harmony, if you are able to put away your presuppositions about other people and about your own worldview.Experience - is important for your self-development and it helps us reach our goals. It is what we need to gain new skills, new knowledge, and new understanding. We gain experience by putting ourselves through things that are sometimes difficult or other times exciting and fun. Either way it is going to build your character and it will help you make next steps in your life. I think we should really be pushing ourselves to experience new things whenever they come our way. Creativity – this is really broad for me. People express their creativity in many ways, whether it is art, studying, writing a paper, becoming a leader, a professor, or a surgeon. Growing up, art played a big role in my life. I loved to spend time crafting, painting, and working with my visual imagination. It helped me to develop my imagination, and my motivation to create, although I do not really have time to do any of this now. It has also helped me to process things in new ways and see beauty in details. Liberal – it sounds really appealing, especially to young people. They want freedom of choice, and a liberal society. There is a constant battle between the older and younger generations. The older generation wants conservative values, the younger generation wants liberal values, and there is this clash. It is important to keep in mind the older generation’s values; we cannot just put them aside.
