Remember Who You Are

When you go abroad you have to remember that you may be faced with preconceived notions and stereotypes held against you before you even say your name. Americans don't have the best reputation abroad, and being Black can also add another layer of prejudice, so just be prepared for anything you may encounter. (Photo: 145/William Andrew/Ocean/Corbis)
