“I care about anthropology because, while studying the various ways people live their lives and their differences, it also shows that we are all just human and aren’t so different in many of the fundamental ways that matter. I love how studying other people can in turn allow us to reflect on ourselves and take us out of our own situation and perspective.” mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm mmm mmmm
