A culture is a way of life. America is a country that consists of many different cultures. As a Puerto Rican American, I have learned to accept myself for being that a Puerto Rican in the Americas…. Puerto Rican American. Puerto Rican Americans are unique because Puerto Rico is a country that we identify with, however we also identify with being American. Puerto Rican Americans often are questioned, about their identity. When people ask me what am I? I often respond… I am Puerto Rican American. Puerto Rican American is so many things. It says a lot about who I am, because culture is many things to me. It is my heritage, my ethnicity, and how I live.
