Hi! I wish I could ask such advice before I started my NS. I ran into some mean girl at the beginning of the school, so sometimes I would just go home and cry 'cause I could not bear it anymore. Thanks God we are not interacting anymore and that taught a good lesson to be quiet about all your personal stuff and just be straight forward on learning new material. Good luck!
PS Right now I am socializing with 2-3 people to whom I can actually trust. Sometimes we study together for the tests. To everybody else in my class I just say "hi" and "bye"...:)

Hey, do not even pay attention to those kind of people. I am not muslim and black, nor American at all but a lot of people would not even bother to pronounce my name when they see it. But I do not make a big deal of it. So, my advice to you: just do what you need to do and don't let people put you down. Good luck!
