Anthropology is the study of humankind. Within this study, there is a subfield that focuses on the study of contemporary societies, which is called cultural anthropology or ethnology. On February 25, 1980, I was born into this world where there exists numerous different societies. Twenty-one years later, I am going to discuss the aspects and experiences that has made me who I am today. These aspects and experiences all started from my parents and their background, the culture which I was brought up in, and then into the family I grew up with, my friends, education, American society, and other personal experiences. They have all contributed to my enculturation and continue to expand into my future. Enculturation is the process of social interaction through which people learn and acquire their culture. It starts from the day a person is born and works until the person dies because people can always learn new things. Culture is a shared way of life that includes values, beliefs, and norms transmitted within a particular society from generation to generation, and a person should be proud of their culture and where they came from.
