The United States is made up of people from different cultures from all around the world. There are many types of people living in my global village right here in Atlanta, Georgia. I see people from different cultures almost every day in my life. Even though we may be different culturally, we still share many things alike
The first person I know who is culturally different from me is my tennis coach, Nick. His parent are from Greece and he was born in Greece. However, he grew up in England. He talks with a British accent. He says things like “hey mate” and “that was a bloody good shot”. He says that he loves to eat Greek food because it is what his mother cooked. He probably really likes greek yogurt! Even though Nick speaks in an English accent,we share something in common. We both like to play tennis! He is a really fun coach!
My soccer coach, Costas, is also from Greece. He actually talks with a greek accent. Sometimes I can’t understand what he is saying. His English is not very clear. He looks like he is from Greece with dark skin and dark hair. Even though we are from different countries, we share one thing in common. We both LOVE to play soccer. He is a great coach!
Another person that I know who is culturally different from me is my aunt, Tara. She is married to my uncle, Jennings. She is from a family where her mother is from Korea and her father is from Pakistan. Tara knows how to speak Korean to her mother. She also knows how to cook Korean food. Even though Tara and I are from different countries, she is the best aunt ever! We share so many things in common. She loves to play sports like me and she loves to laugh and be silly. She is so much fun!
Even though I am culturally different from these people, we share many things alike. I enjoy living in a diverse global village of people. It makes life more interesting to know people of all types, shapes, and sizes.
