                                                                  Music

    I am very fond of music it has been my favorite to listen too. It makes my day better whether I'm stressed out or just want to listen to some good music. I have tried to be diverse on the type of artist and genre I listen to because I have discovered over time some amazing artist by being open minded when I listen to their songs. Some artist I admire and enjoy their  music are Beyonce, Drake , Rihanna ,Bryson Tiller,Kendrick Lamar,and Chance the Rapper .Sometimes I like listening to songs in Spanish or usually when my family plays Mexican music . I like to listen to different types  of music and genre's because personally I have noticed a lot of the music expresses the struggles the artist went through and it inspires me because now they are so big in the world and have over come the obstacles they went  through ,music has played a part of my daily life I admire how someone can turn music and beats  into such great songs  I have become to admire and respect many artist .

Reflection on place and culture

I'm very proud of my culture as being Hispanic my parents have taught me a lot of culture and tradition . My parents were raised not the wealthiest people but have been taught that even if you don't have much whether its money to always to be honest,hardworking , and respectful . They have passed it on to me and my sisters . In a way  I have been raised to follow my culture and traditions for example the way we spend holidays it is totally different to the way someone else with a different culture spends it because culture and tradition  passes on from generation to generation I think it is something everybody should value and take respect of . A lot of our culture comes in on how we live on a daily basis what we eat and how the women in the house have to make meals for the family and the food is mostly homemade.Something I would change is equality through out hispanic families although not everybody does it but I have noticed once you are married the women always have to do the feminine jobs around the house and out side for example mostly taking care of the kids , and cooking for the husband ,cleaning, and many more that are commonly done . I would like to change the way women and men are viewed and make it more equal . I value and care very much  for my family and culture equality is something  I would change . Im very thankful to be hispanic and be able to discover more knowledge  and be a part of my culture. There is so many wonderful qualities of having a different  culture like living different than most people because I get to experience  having different foods and traditions.

About me

Hi my name is Rosalie Gonzalez I'm 15 years old and live in Fortuna Ca . Im a sophomore at Fortuna High school some of my interest have always been sports since I have been little I have played soccer and basketball,as i got older i really got interested in gymnastics although a rare sport around where i live i found a huge passion for it i started off at a late age but i was confident my hard work could get me where i wanted . I did competitive gymnastics and got to go to many meets and state ,gymnastics got me to learn hard work pays off and i grew a bond with my teammates and we became really close friends as well as my coaches. i also played volleyball as a student athlete and AAU volleyball and had become one of my favorite sports. Other than sports i enjoy spending time with my family and friends especially my sisters because i have learned many valuable lessons from them and one of my sisters has helped me out to be  successful in school as i admire her accomplishments she has done in high school and now in the University she is going to. A little bit about me is i like to keep my circle of friends small rather than big because i tend just to keep up with my close friends that are actually interested in my friendship i can be very sarcastic if you get to know me and become close to me . Also if i set my mind on something i make sure its accomplished for example how i want to do very good in school i would love to follow my sisters path she had in high school and now. My ethnicity is Hispanic although born in the United States i have been raised and surrounded by my families culture and tradition which i feel has build me to be a more diverse person.
