I believe every natural of people have family that comes with a downfall, and always turn out to be functional by sticking to their values, culture, and beliefs. As for my family, I believe that culture and the nationality plays a big role in the household. I was raised by strict Haitian parents, that was always tough on me about education, responsibility, and independence. I believe my parents was only strict on me the most because I was the last out of four children's, which is I was the youngest. Alfred Adler did a family constellation and birthorder were Adlerians believes that the sibling closest in age and most different is the sibling that most affect how one defines the self (cite pg94).

My parents Immigrated from Poland to the United States in search for better opportunity for the children that they planned to have. When my parents finally made the move, they started with nothing and no one to turn to; they did not even know how to speak English. All my parents knew for sure was that they were going to raise three children in America and do all they could possibly do to motivate and make them passionate for school. My parents have always wanted their children to achieve the careers of their dreams and be able to support their own family as well as be happy with their lives. My parents have struggled with money their entire lives, which is another reason why they did all they could to get to America and motivate their children for schooling. They did not want their children to struggle with money the way that they did. But this led another issue, affording college. My parents did not have enough money for their children to attend college. Because of this, I have done my best in school to earn outstanding grades and do my best to earn scholarships.

According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, a nuclear family can be described as a group of people who are united by ties of partnership and parenthood, consisting of a pair of adults and their socially recognized children (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2015). Because most children are most exposed to their parents in this manner, the nuclear family is regarded as the basic social unit where a child learns adult conduct. Based on Freud’s psychoanalytic theory, the way an adult perceives life is determined by the experiences the person had as a child (Moynihan, 1965). Consequently, the stability of a child’s nuclear family can have a large impact on their subsequent behavior as they age.
Chapter fifteen of Multicultural Education is divided into three major sections. These three sections include recruitment and barriers, recruitment recommendations, and retention issues/difficulties. A large part of this chapter focuses on the underrepresentation of culturally diverse students in gifted and advance placement programs. When taking a look at gifted education programs, there is an extreme underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans in these programs. Gifted education programs are a need not just a privilege and should not be used as a simple form of segregation between races or cultures.
What makes my cultural identity different from others? No one has the exact same culture as somebody. What culture means to me is, the way a person is raised or things around them that makes them the way they are. It is a part of a person’s self-conception and self perception. My cultural identity is a unique one based on the influences of Religion, Education, and Sports.
My parents endured these struggles with their unwavering perseverance and belief in the American Dream. Their relentless struggle to achieve the American Dream that countless immigrants came to the country to realized inspired me to do the same. I am from my parent's belief in hard work and perseverance.

You see good old fashioned family time is the fabric of multicultural And memories can be vague and nowhere like the real thing. For multicultural households the family home is the bedrock of their being, a place that protects them from the outside world, a place where they can be themselves without explanation and without justification to those who just don’t understand anyway. They can just be. But as children leave home and family circumstances change that protective support unit becomes fragmented, unstable and vulnerable. And even though there’s the phone, email and holidays – there is always that feeling that it won’t ever be the same again and that can be
