Part B – 1. Identity I am a young white middle class heterosexual female who was born in Canada and raised in an English and French speaking nuclear family household. This statement matches how socially I see myself, and how others would see me by first impression, but it does not define who I am. It captures everything that I am as a person, but it fails to capture my beliefs, such as my religion and view on politics. Representing myself in this way, is somewhat of an underrepresentation of who I am because there is so much more to me as a person. This representation shows where and how I was born into society but does not go into further detail of who I am.

But if I had bought that coffee at Tim Hortons, nobody would have said anything. This is an odd example to use for this topic but when you get judged constantly because the brand of your coffee can magically match your skin colour, it gets a little annoying. It, for some reason, has turned into a negative stigma to be white and buy Starbucks. A final example would be when I did something bad and was labelled as a “teenager” as an excuse for my behaviour. It has been rooted forever that teenagers are always up to bad things, and that led to my justification of my
