The theme of cultural values appears over the course of the book What the Moon Saw, by Laura Resau. In the Mixteco village of Yucuyoo, people live simplistic lives deeply rooted in tradition and community. The people who live in Yucuyoo value friendship and the world around them. To begin with, they value friendship and have a strong sense of community. For example, the people in Yucuyoo “all eat from the tortilla” (82).
The two stereotypes about Canadian Culture that I have found to be untrue. Firstly, they lives in igloos and next, they says eh thing. Even personally, I am agreeing that these stereotypes are absolutely untrue because I think, they don’t have only snowy winters. However, they are also enjoying a beautiful weather like spring, summer etc. In addition, they loves to cook food in summer’s outside of their house for entertaining themselves.
Christmas is my favorite holiday because every year ever since I could remember, our family gets together to make Tamales, one of the traditional foods in Hispanic culture. This get together is known as Tamalada Day, and we cook pork, beef, beans and make masa which is spread onto ojas which eventually are steamed and formed into the delicious food we eat on Christmas Eve. I still remember how when I was younger, family functions were dear to me because it meant getting to spend time with my elders. My grandparents were always quick to correct, discipline, or teach me when I would speak incorrectly, treat someone else rudely, or act uneducated. My great grandmother, who recently died at the age of one hundred and two, taught me wise little sayings and really showed me how to open my heart to the world and show appreciation for everything that life has brought to me.
A: One of the happiest days of my life was April 25th, 2013 when I swore to the flag of the United States of America; the country who accepted me, embraced me, and who gave me and my family opportunities for a better life. That was the day I became an American citizen. Q: How is your country different from the US? A: My country is different from the US, because of its climate and culture. In Brazil, we don't have the perfect Four Seasons, as we have in the most part of the United States.
Growing up in a public housing development, I longed to one day help individuals from an underserved community obtain care. At this soup kitchen, my responsibilities included welcoming guests, serving food, waiting tables, and cleaning trays. I empathized with their excitement when watching them receive a hot cup of tea on a sub-freezing day or a book bag with a built-in trench coat on a stormy day. Having an opportunity to spend time with and learn from the diversity of the population that we served was invaluable. Each person had a unique story to tell and just wanted someone to hear it.
Soccer has been my life This whole entire time since the day I came out, the story I will talk about is mostly about soccer.

I was twelve when my team won the championship. “ Championships bring joy and happiness ,but takes a lot of work to get there. It was a warm and sunny day as I prepared to run the drills before the game. As my team and I were doing the drills such as sprinting,shooting, and passing I was already thinking about the game ,but realized I had to stay focused on the drills for now. As there were ten minutes before the game we kept on doing the drills until I heard my coach announcing the starting lineup.
I’d say it was a splendid way to end a fun filled day. Monday afternoon was game day. The team met in the lobby at 8 a.m., dressed, fed, and ready to play. Hastily, my mother and I drove to the fields. Our team played hard, and we won the first, second, and the third game so we moved on to the finals!
During the summer before my senior year, I was waking up almost every day early in the morning for training, and had games during nighttime, including weekends. Needless to say that soccer had become the main focus of my life. My sole motivation for waking up every morning was to get better and stronger with each practice and game. Everything I did was for my improvement. All I looked forward to, was the next time I would be on the field and the next time I would be running with a ball at my feet to score a goal.
Without a doubt, Vicuña would be my choice of travel because of the amazing memories I made this past summer while studying abroad with CIEE through their High School Summer Abroad Program based in Valparaíso, Chile. In Chile, I lived la vida porteña, which means “the port life”. Sure, in English it may not sound so appealing, but there was this energy that could only be found in streets in Valpo that brought out the best in me. I found myself counting the hours down to when

My cultural identity can be identified by my age, the food I eat, and the music I listen to. My favorite foods define who I am because, Louisiana has very different types food. Crawfish, Gumbo, Alligator, and Boudin are examples of some of the foods i like. A lot of people, like me, put Tony Chachere’s on their food. Just something as simple as liking spicy foods can make your culture different.

It was just a normal Saturday afternoon at the soccer field, and our team, The Strikers, were ready to play. It had been a nice few days in Garden Grove, but not for long. We had all arrived at 9:15 to warm up, and the game was at 9:45. Our team had been warming up when it started to become overcast. Of Course we would still play, because we play in almost any weather.
A four year ago, I moved from Ethiopia to United State. When I was little I always wanted to go school in the U.S., so, we moved the summer before my freshman year in high school. I was enjoying summer, I visited my sibling in Washington and spend half of my summer in their house, I loved it. School started in August that year and I was excited. After a week of school, I realized what people saw when I talked.
