I would identify myself as being an African-American Puerto Rican man. I am strong willed, ambitious, dedicated, persistent, hard-working, handsome, emotionally stable, cultured individual. I feel much of who I have become is heavily based in my upbringing and my peers. I was always taught to give my all in everything that I do. My mother instilled in me at a very young age to be the best I can be and be happy. Sports growing up gave me a sense of unity and family with my teammates. The locker room could either make you or break you but it taught me to be strong. There were many times when I could remember after a long practice or game sitting in the locker room and being ridiculed for missing a tackle or messing up my assignment. This drove me to practice my techniques and study my playbook hence making me strong willed and persistent to doing things right. There were no second chances or complaining or winning that would make you seem less manly or less “Macho (Anaya 1996).” In my situation “Macho” meant to be manly or the alpha male. Not the misconceived notion of female abuse or wild behavior or “la vida loca” as touched upon by R. Anaya (Anaya 1996:51).
