10) This video was interesting due to a variety of themes. Sharing a multicultural identity that ends up being a strength versus seen as a weakness, allowing an individual to have a foot in “both camps.” Please give an example of any situation in YOUR life that you have experienced such a feeling where carrying multi-identities (ethnicity, culture, language, political leanings, job status, hobbies, etc) has been beneficial to you or made your self-identity stronger. What is your “mestizo” and “bicultural” aspect that strengthens you, helps you form new relationships, and allows you to be mailable in different situations?
