Final Project 2 My name is Sonja Saltzgiver. I was born Sonja Miller, in Pontiac, Michigan. My parents are of a very diverse background; Italian, German, Scottish, Irish, and Indian. I grew up knowing there were differences in people, but that those differences were not to be singled out and ostracized for personal or hateful reasons. Although I was born in Pontiac, Michigan, I lived my first ten years in Cadillac, Michigan, a small resort town in the northern part of the Lower Peninsula. The town was mainly comprised of white Americans. When I was 10 years old, my family moved to Warren, Michigan. This area had a more diverse culture. I encountered Black, Asian, and Mexican Americans. I also learned how to fight, ignore, and hate. Those are not things I am proud of. When I was 13, we moved to St. Clair Shores, Michigan. This area had a greater white presence in the town and school system. I graduated high school there and promptly moved to Ridgecrest, California with my family. Ridgecrest had a more Asian culture due to its military dependence. I met and married my husband, had all three of my children, and lived 13 years in a sort of daze. In 1998, we moved back to Michigan. Seven years later, my children and I moved to Carthage, Tennessee. This town was very rural and had a prejudice front. In 2008 I moved my youngest daughter and I to Houston, Texas due to the impending divorce. We were met with hatred, a very racist community toward white people, and lack of help for those in need. December 15, 2008, we moved to Flagstaff, Arizona to be near family. Flagstaff has an American Indian and Mexican American influence. Although we have not been here that long, I have found our stay to be pleasant. Flagstaff has more of an American Indian presence than any other racial group. There are many people that resemble me, but none that look like me as I am unique. I feel that the way we

Final Project 3 are most different is also the ways we are most alike. It is our differences that make us who we are; what makes us special. The leaders in Flagstaff, Arizona treat every one equally, in my opinion. I live close to many Indian reservations. I see many people of the Indian culture in the community. They are friendly to the visitors and the public. I feel no animosity toward us as white people due to the treatment of their people in the past. This is something that I found interesting because I felt bitterness
