Cultural Awareness Collage

Concrete, behavioral and symbolic aspects

Concrete

4th of July is one of many cultural celebrations and my favorite holiday!

Pasta is an Italian dish as well as an American dish. I was born in Italy and it's a favorite food of mine!

I love trendy, easy to wear clothing and I feel that the picture below definitely suits my style.

Behavioral

I am a registered Republican, however I did this when I was a Senior in HS and my dad told me to vote this way. Now that I'm older and have a better understanding of political affiliations I don't necessarily agree with this choice.

I feel as though my values are typical American values with "Home and Family" being number one.

My family structure consists of two parents and two children. My husband and I co-parent and share in establishing expectations for our children.

Symbolic

Custom-a traditional and widely accepted way of behaving or doing something that is specific to a particular society, place, or time.

I was born and raised Catholic, however I no longer practice this religion. I feel as though "Christianity" is a good way of explaining my religion and belief system currently.

Farming is custom to my childhood as well as fully integrated into my life now.

I feel as though I hold traditional morals and beliefs such as living by the Golden Rule and wanting to help people in need.
