My experience with other cultures didn't stop at my introduction. One of my best friends in elementary school was from Cuba. Her mother didn't speak but a few words in English. My grandmother , somehow talked her into becoming a room mother and the two of them served alongside each other all year. I remember Momma saying "I'll help you" and off they were.
I now have a wide array of multicultural friends: My Mary Kay friend from Germany, my college friends from India, my bible school classmate from Kenya, and my coworker from Mexico. The international friends that my daughter has brought to my house from all around the world are too numerous to count. My friend who is hard of hearing and speaks sign language has helped me learn ASL. The list goes on and on. It all started with a simple instruction, "take off your shoes". What will it take for you to get out of your comfort zone and become acquainted with someone from another culture. God created a rainbow, don't get stuck on one color.
