Why I am Culturally Unique: Holly Bigg

Growing up in a small town outside of Toronto, Canada in a Portuguese-Canadian family made me aware of what cultural uniqueness is. Participating and emerging myself in athletics throughout my entire life has provided me the opportunity to understand and build a culturally unique foundation.  I was provided the opportunity to be on numerous teams in different countries that not only helped me understand different cultures, but helped emerge myself in building relationships and collaborating in team settings with individuals to create our own culturally unique identities. These experiences have provided me with insight into the importance and need for the understating of cultural uniqueness in society today.
