Your personalities and identities start shaping as a child. Your own experiences with family and friends help to make you who you are. Sometime we think if we would have only done something different, but it is the thing that we did do that makes us who we are today. Each culture has expectations, rule and certain ways of life it is those things that help shape and define your personality. I choose to compare Mexico culture to the United States culture. To see how each countries culture shapes the personalities and identities of its people. In the Mexico family is very important. Families in Mexico are usually larger where as in the United State there are typically two or fewer children. In the beginning Mexico was that way for survival but those close ties have been passed on through generations and are still strong today. Family is first, there job is second. This different from the United States because in the United States most of the time jobs are first family is second. They love to settle down in one place and take care of there family.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
