Family Interview - Compare and Contrast Cultures Paper
Family Interview - Compare and Contrast Cultures PaperLiving in the United States and working in the health care profession, different cultures and beliefs get to be examined and viewed every day in the clinic office. Having the privilege of growing up in Mexico, I decided to interview my brother as my family interview. The other person I decided to interview was a colleague who was raised in California. I found that our differences come and go, but we ended up having more similarities in our cultures than I believed that we would have. The differences and similarities that I got from the interview are discussed below, where the cultural of Mexico are compared to that of a woman raised in California, U.S.A, according to the interviewees involved. Summary of the Responses from the InterviewI sat down with both of my interviewees at the same time to be able to cross-reference and further along discussion between the three of us. The first interviewee was my brother Mr. Garcia who is a male adult aged 27 born in Mexico and came over to America with the family when he was 15. My second interviewee was my colleague Mrs. S, who is an adult female born and raised in California, U.S.A, whose age is 35 years. My brother spent majority of his childhood and teen years living in Mexico, and my colleague spent her entire childhood to youngadulthood living in California before moving here to Arizona. Interviewing them together, reinforced the idea that Olaniran and Roach said about how culture really is what represents how people view their individuality, yet still viewing themselves as part of the unique social collective as a group (Olaniran & Roach, 1994).
