After watching the short movie based on cultural humility, I realized that one should never put a halt to learning and the opportunity to be educated. As shown in the documentary, although you believe you know everything, it turns out that you never really know much. This shows how the journey never ends. Cultural humility involves being accepting, understanding, humble, non-judgmental, and mindful of those who are not like you in the sense that you may share different cultural traditions and values.

One part of the documentary that stuck out to me was the scene where one of the females talked about how she had the tendency of putting herself down when she was not educated on a particular subject. Someone gave her wise words of wisdom and reminded her that now knowing does not indicate that you are stupid or that you lack knowledge, it just means that you have to build your knowledge in that particular area by asking questions and expanding your horizons. I am able to relate to this because at times I feel as if not knowing something makes me less smart but hearing these words I realized that I shouldn’t think that way because I may not have sufficient knowledge on one thing, but maybe have an overflow of knowledge on another.
