My background is a collection of different cultures which has had a great influence in the type of person that I am today; a Jewish American-Peruvian. I was born in Peru and educated at a Jewish day school. My ability to communicate in English, Spanish, and Hebrew, allows
me to integrate myself into three very diverse ethnic groups. This is very important in succeeding in today’s multicultural world. The qualities and values that I have received over the years have helped me realize how important it is to be able to treat all people with the respect that they deserve, without letting prejudices get in the way of my behaviors.
I have been fortunate enough to travel and spend time abroad. Living in Peru for most of my life, as well as visiting Israel many times, has allowed me to experience the cultural differences among these two countries as a real insider. Now, living in the most widely differentiated society in America, I have had the chance to learn from and coexist with many people, each with their own combination of different cultures.
At the end of the day, it is a person’s culture that defines who they are. I am very grateful for my diversified culture and look forward to not only sharing my qualities and behaviors, but also plan on learning from new diverse experiences that I will encounter in the future.
