Identity is defined by a person’s culture. One major component that determines a person’s identity and is apart of the person’s culture is their familial life.

Everyone has at least one identity or characteristic in which they identify. Identities can aid someone by allowing them to have more opportunities in life, while other identities can limit them. Some common identities that can significantly affect the opportunities and options in one 's life are gender, race, and religion.

In European history, society had certain expectations of citizens and would systematically oppress those that did not fit into the mold of the perfect citizen.
Identity is social construct that many have mistaken for something an individual is born with. There are many aspects of identity that one can inherit like genes that can drive a certain type of character and certain aspects of identity a person can adopt and build for themselves.

Identity is a said to not remain unchanged once established.
