Blend of cultures

Interesting take on issue of identity/home from Taiye Salesi. Don’t I just love controversial topics? Well, life will be too boring if we all have to agree easily on every subject, I suppose.

This is a talk where simple question such as ‘where are you from?’ is given different interpretations. The world is what it is, today people are moving around the world and settling down in countries different from their place of birth.

I have never thought the question ‘where are you from?’ is more than a conversation starter that it is. People are curious and sometimes just want to know a bit of personal information to see if there is anything they have in common that could help with moving chats along.

Some people found it easier to mention a place they feel most connected to, I think with others, it is not as clear-cut.
