I am a multicultural student. And I feel that many of the multicultural students spend most of their time teaching others about their own culture, instead of learning more about their own culture.

Some things in life cannot be assigned a price. Things like memories, vacations from work, taking a cut in pay to accept a dream job are what we call "priceless," because we value them no matter what the opportunity costs associated with choosing them may be.
