Everyone Has a Culture

I am a Hispanic Christian female.  I believe there are so many things that make us who we are.  I also believe our upbringing plays an important role on how receptive we are with different cultures.  I remember growing up we didn't have much material wise, but one thing was certain we had lots of love, and mom always made sure we had food on the table and clean clothes to wear.  She also always taught us it was important to look as good as we felt meaning always keep a neat appearance.  I remember my brother and I chasing each other, running around playing. Church attendance was difinitely expected every Sunday and always having a special Sunday dinner.  Holidays were also very special in our household.  All our family would get together and bring their families and we would have a big celebration.  It was all about food, fun and family.  I remember always having special guest that would come with family members, so having strangers come over at Christmas or Thanksgiving was never unusual.  I strongly believe that my upbringing has helped me become the person I am today. I love meeting people of different cultures.  I believe that this is so important in communication.  It is important that we understand different cultures and learn the many things they have to offer.  I feel blessed to be loved and one to love others regardless of of race, religion etc.  We are all equals and should treat others as we like to be treated.
