Students Showcase World Culture at International Fashion Show

The International Programs & Global Engagement (IPGE for short) organization on campus serves as a safe haven for international students to feel welcome here at Sacramento State. If you’d like to learn more about IPGE, check out our previous article. On Valentine’s Day, they held an International Fashion Show to showcase cultures from around the world from places like Mexico, Japan, Cambodia, India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, and more!

All of the international students who participated in the fashion show wore traditional clothing from their home countries and wore them with pride! It was so much fun seeing people from different cultures proudly wear their clothing and show us Sacramento natives how beautiful other cultures are.

International students often feel a sense of disconnect and a struggle to feel like they belong when studying somewhere that is far from home. I’m happy to say that Sacramento State serves as a place to be free and embrace who you are culturally. It’s something that everyone should embrace about themselves because being different from one another is important to recognize as long as we treat each other with respect and love.
