Culture Shock

Adjusting to life in the United States has been one new experience after another for Waghdan Aljayashee, and her grandmother, Haseeba Zaghairon. As a former Anthropology student, I have found it interesting to observe their transition. Most of the time the two Iraqi natives have embraced our culture with enthusiasm. But in this waiting room at Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati, Haseeba retreated to her own custom of sitting on the floor.

Watch for the next installment of Waghdan’s story to be published soon in the Herald-Leader.
