Class, culture, and race haven’t played too much of a role in my individual learning. There are only a few minor ways I have seen it influence me. I am middle class, and my family had to work hard to get there. My parent’s cultures involve a lot of hard work and dedication in order to better yourself, so naturally, that was passed onto me and projected onto me my whole academic career. They want me to try my hardest these early years so later on, I can reap the rewards. Class wise, my parents grew up not having a lot, so in a sense, from them being apart of the lower class before, they have seen what it’s like and want me to work hard and to have the things to be able to succeed. Such as the opportunity to attend college, something they weren’t able to do.
