Importance and role of the family
Religion/spirituality
Gender issues
Attitudes about mainstream U.S. culture
Social class
Cultural values
Language issues
Ambition and family obligations
Adapting to America or to a new region of America
Experiences with microaggressions or more direct forms of racism or discrimination

Part 2: Write a 4 to 6 page paper summarizing what you learned in the interview. Support or negate your findings with support from research in the Library. Your paper should include 4 to 6 sources from peer reviewed journals.
