Culture is a way of life that includes our values, beliefs, language religion and traditions. Culture is our own unique blueprint of life. We live in a country that has a melting pot of different cultures however, people tend to share some of the same norms and values of other cultures. There is no doubt that my cultural influence had a great impact determining my behavior and decisions that I have made in my life. I remember my grandmother telling me how my great grandparents sharecopped and earned enough money to become land owners to have an inheritance to leave from generation to generation.
