About This Weeks GuestKiran Beersing-Vasquez

Kiran Beersing-Vasquez

A 20-year-old student of mixed background. Born in the UK and moved to Belgium at age 9.  Attended an international school in Brussels, which had 9 different language sections, and students from all over the world with similarly mixed origins. Now back in the UK and on his Year in Industry, in a Mechanical Engineering degree. Mother and Father originate from Guatemala and Mauritius respectively.

His 3 tips for becoming more culturally competent are:

  • Take as much interest as you can, and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
  • Approach things from a neutral perspective as much as possible.
  • It’s OK to be ignorant, as long as you try to understand the other culture.
