Cultured is my interaction design thesis project, it is currently in progress.

My vision is to lessen culture shock for exchange and international students, so they are free to quickly adjust and experience the new culture. Accomplished by an organization that would work with exchange and international students in various aspects of their studies and travels. 
My mission is to create a smartphone app that will encourage exchange and international students to get out of their comfort zones and meet others. Exchange and international students will become more open to the possibilities of integration, while also giving them resources to utilize and other students to journey with, so they are not alone.
