The Real Me My personality is what makes me who I am today. Although I may have some weaknesses in my personality, I am basically the upbeat type. I try to be as happy as I can most of the time. Everyone cannot please each other but if everyone pleases everybody and are cheerful most of the time. My ethnicity, my location, sports, and my ambitions for the future have shaped my Identity. My personality and being a Christian were affected by my adoptive parents. My father is a disciplinarian and he taught me at a very early age the difference between right and wrong.
He would always scold me properly when I misbehaved. Because of this early discipline, I always stop and think about what I am doing. If I think my father would disapprove, then I would not do it. My mother is a devoted Christian. She attends church service every Sunday and would always see to it that I go to Sunday school. This was so instilled in me that while I was in high school I would assist the Sunday school teachers with the children left In their care, while their parents attended the church service. This has helped me to be very patient with younger children.
My identity as also affected by my ethnicity. Although I was brought to this country from Jamaica when I was 1 year old, I still identify myself as being Jamaican, even though I cannot speak the Jamaican language, This Is because my parents have always surrounded me with people and things Jamaican. My parents’ brothers and sisters are Jamaican and when they visit, they always talk with the Jamaican accent and do things and cook dishes that are Jamaican. I can always talk with my Jamaican cousins and we can always confide in each other. When I was younger, I would go to Jamaica and spend time with my Grandparents.
While there I would attend summer school. Socializing with Jamaican children my age helped to shape my identity as a Jamaican. My identity has also been affected by the location that I grew up in. In our neighborhood, my parents have friends that have taken an Interest In how I grew up. Could always talk to these friends and get their Impression on something that I had an interest in doing. Some of these friends are also Jamaican so this has helped to shape my identity as being Jamaican. I also have some friends in the area whom I communicate with on social media which has also shaped who I am today.
Because some of these friends are American, It has helped to shape my Identity not Just as being Jamaican but Jamaican American. For instance I have learnt to accept Reggae music which is Jamaican and at the same time I like American Hip Hop music and several of the American artists. Also although one of my favorite dishes is Mac and Cheese which is the American side of my personality, I also enjoy Cake which Is Jamaican National fruit. Participating In different sports has also played a part In who I am today. I did Track and Field when I was in Middle and High school.
Many 1 OFF re. You used to run for the Maryland Titans! ” I also did Karate while in Middle school and developed an identity as being very talented. I played Basketball in the neighborhood and developed the identity of being very athletic. Friends in the area used to call me a crafty little basketball player. I really enjoyed playing sports. This really helped to build my self-esteem, Just to know that people recognized what I have achieved in the different sports that I participated in. During my free time I love to watch Nettling, not Just any shows.
I love to watch the shows that I have use my rain and solve mysteries, like Blue Bloods, CSS, Rookie Blue and all the solving mysteries that get my attention. This past June, I took a trip to California and Lass Vegas. In Lass Vegas the is this place called the CSS experience where I got to solve a fake crime. I was really happy that I solved the case in less than 25 minutes. Just by solving this crime I felt like I was in the television shows that I watch. From I was a young child; I was always fascinated with computers. Both of my parents work with computers, so I think that is what got me interested with them.
I would always ask my parents to take me with them to work so I can get a better understanding. Just standing over their shoulder and watching their every move intrigued me, hence the choice in my Major is Cyber Security. Once I get my two-year degree I plan to go on to a four year college and complete my Bachelor’s degree in my chosen Major. Your identity isn’t your identity until you start making choices later in life. Like if you like playing sports, my ethnicity, where I grew up that’s your identity. Just don’t run into life so quickly, live life for a while then start living it.
