Karim Creary is a senior at St. Lawrence University, originally from Bermuda, who knows the significance of walking a couple miles in someone else’s shoes, which can be really important when your home island is about a mile wide. Karim explores the importance of seeing the world from another person’s perspective, specifically someone with whom you don’t agree.
Karim Creary is an international economics and Spanish combined major of the Class of 2017. He was born and raised on the island of Bermuda until the age of 15, when he received a scholarship to study at United World College Costa Rica for 2 years. Bermuda is a very small island, being only 23 square miles long, but it is packed full of various cultures due to the importance of international business to the island. The size of the island forces these cultures to interact often so there is a sense of harmony, perhaps somewhat false, that is necessary for there not to be civil unrest. In his talk he hopes to outline what he has learned, from his personal human experience, is necessary to foster harmony.
