1. Specific cultures
I am a Caucasian female and I am a quarter of each German, Swedish, and Norwegian. The rest is a blend of Dutch, British and Jewish. I chose to investigate my German and Swedish heritage because they each make up a big part of my background. I also chose them because I inherited the Swedish from my dad and the German from my mom, and I wanted to pursue cultures from each side.
