Growing in Papillion, Ne, my views on everything were similar to the kids that I went to school with whether I liked it or not. That was because we all lived in the same town, went to the same schools, and watched the same news. Since coming to college, I have met people with a wide range of beliefs and ethics that differed wildly from my own.
It was very interesting to see the viewpoints of students from certain sections of the US like in California or Texas and how different they were. What was more surprising was how similar they were. This also helped to make my social media more interesting as I always had the opinion of the devil's advocate.
