Do it for the culture! Growing up in New Orleans, I learned a lot about Caribbean, French, African, and Spanish culture. New Orleans is a melting pot of everything. The architecture, the food, the music all have hints of previous communities that settled in the city. Culture has a lot to do with influence. If someone wanted to study your culture, what would they say would be your primary influence? Do you have a strong sense of self and community? What traditions do you have? What do you believe? What do you practice? What have you produced? What does your cultural legacy look like?
