Re: When did you become conscious of your heritage?
I became conscious of my heritage when I first started to study history in high school. As I gained knowledge of world events and their effect on peoples, I naturally connected to that which my ancestors may have been involved with. As well as how these events extended to other peoples. It didn't take long before I realized we all make up a world community and that borders and labels have led to prideful conflict and misunderstandings throughout history.
As I matured I was able to travel to the lands of my forefathers and absolutely fell in love with one of those destinations. I was also glad to find that people around the world are not so different from each other when we get face-to-face.
