Personal Globalization – Liwen Zhang

The globalization affects my personal life in three aspects: education, technology, and food. As a Chinese student, I can study electrical engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. Because I study abroad, my parents get interested in the foreign culture and technology. Both of my parents are using iPhone 7 right now and contact me through the applications in their smartphones. Comparing to technology, globalization also impacts on food. McDonald’s, KFC and Pizza Hut open more chain stores in China and provide delivery service.

The globalization also impacts my nearby families. When I was a freshman, I had a Chinese teacher from Beijing as my C programming professor. He got his job offer from UMD and went to the USA with his family. Also, one of my Chinese friends in UMD gets his job offer from Google after his graduation this year. There are more Chinese people get their job offers from foreign countries so that some workers in America and Europe often blame China for stealing their jobs (2016).

Based on my perspective, globalization has good impacts on the US. Globalization opens more markets for the United States, which in effect helps American companies sell their products worldwide (2012). Globalization attracts the foreign corporations to open their markets in the United States, which increases the emphasis on international cooperation (2012). The globalization makes the United States have an easy and frequent communication with the world.
