Question

What if my child is multi-racial? Do you think this will affect his/her experience abroad?

    I think it depends on where your child travels. In London I noticed that interracial dating was quite common, much more so than in the U.S. actually, at least in the situations I observed. Many people were multi-racial, or had immigrant parents, and most people were tolerant and accepting of this. Other places might not be so welcoming. And honestly it might depend on your ethnic/racial makeup as well at the location. You should research your country’s history and maybe use your child’s study abroad office as a resource as well, but don’t make any assumptions without first obtaining information
