Well, I have heard many high-profile foreigners such as sports stars, politicians, motivational speakers, and businessmen. I always try to keep myself posted about the global economic news as well as renowned personalities. So today, I’d take this opportunity to talk about a man who has been my idol and has had a profound impact on my personality. He is none other than Ravi Singh Khalsa. He is a British Citizen.
I’ve read about him online and also get to know about his work through the news. He is a great volunteer and helps needy people. He got the award of excellence and achievement in the united Kingdom. Ravi was shot to fame in the UK in 2014 when he mobilized his charity to help the people after heavy rain and high winds caused huge amounts of damage to property and land.
There is a range of things which made me find him interesting. He also stepped in to provide relief to flood victims in multiple Indian states impacted in the 2019 Indian floods. Another main reason why I like him so much is that he is a very down-to-earth person. He is a prime example on this planet that one can achieve anything they want with the virtues of persistence and hard work. He has travelled to the front-line around the world including Kosovo, Syria, Congo, Somalia, Syria, Iraq, as well as help communities closer to home in the UK during the floods.
1.Do you have any foreign friends and do you think having foreign friends is a good way to know other countries?
Yes, I have few Australian friends who I’ve met during my studies on the internet. They are nice and very soft-spoken people. And absolutely, I believe that it’s a wonderful way to explore different culture and lifestyle through the eyes of a native friend.
2. Do you think it’s important to know the culture and language before going to another country?
Personally, I think It is essential to know about the culture and language of foreign country before visiting it. Learning the basic dialect is often helpful in exploring the city and make new social connections. Many times, I engaged with people on a completely different level as I was not only perceived as the annoying tourist but as someone who at least tried to learn their language & culture, if anything out of respect.
3. What do you think of people who work in international companies?
Working for an international brand would definitely give good exposure to people working there. It can be a great way to see something of the world whilst you’re learning. Multinational companies have presence in various countries, and landing a job with one, means you could soon be living overseas in some of the most exciting and diverse landscapes on the planet.
4. What abilities do people need to have when working in an international company?
Global companies always look for multi-talented individuals. As such, good communication skills, interpersonal skills, awareness about culture and language, leadership capability, and a cooperative attitude are some of the abilities that people need to have when working for an MNC (Multi-national company).
