Bursting With Culture
“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots.” – Marcus Garvey
Culture is something to be proud of. Not only can it help you research your identity, it can be clinically helpful as some disorders stem from a particular culture.
One of the reasons I am a proud Canadian is all of the many different cultures I see on a daily basis. Not only are we a country with two official languages, we are a country bursting with cultures!
Many people I know are first or second generation Canadians with parents and grandparents that were not born here. They have given me many learning experiences. I know certain words and phrases that stem from different cultures just by people I have met in my life.
On any given day you can see people on our streets from every corner of the world. I am always keen on experiencing new cultures in their food, beliefs, and history (but mostly food!).
I am proud to say I’m from Canada when I travel, because if I am asked what the culture of Canada is, I can say “Multicultural.”
