Through her father’s job, freshman Olivia Peruzzi spent a year introducing a Saudi Arabian family to America. The family traveled from Dammam and spent a year living in Michigan.

While introducing the family to American life, Peruzzi simultaneously learned about Saudi Arabian culture.

“We got to learn more about their culture, and we learned more about the different things they celebrate and how they live back at home,” Peruzzi said.

The Peruzzi family took the visiting family to a Red Wings Game, the Henry Ford House and even Florida. They are still in contact and FaceTime each other.

“I feel like it’s just changed me because, I mean, I have never experienced it before, and it feels kind of cool teaching someone you know that’s foreign essentially English and show them around America,” Peruzzi said. “We just introduced a whole new world to them.”
