When I started working at the Language and Culture Center at the University of Houston, I had a privilege to meet Dr. Carol Archer who introduced me to the Culture Bump. Working with international students as an ESOL instructor gave me a chance to discover the wide range of situations where the concept can be applied. After learning more about the culture Bump when completing the training that allowed me to be the Culture Bump facilitator, I realized that the concept can be use in various settings (personal life, professional environment, business settings and many other life situations.)
