Globalization has taken this present era by storm. People are no longer afraid of boundaries in order to do either business, work or even go for higher education. The boundaries are blurring and the sense of cultural alienation that people and young students are scared of is not being powerful enough to deter them from venturing unknown spaces and showcasing their dynamism and talent.
