Balancing American and Ugandan Culture

Balancing the two cultures (American/Ugandan) can often be hard. In the USA, we have freedoms, perhaps too many freedoms, and as an individual you choose how to live with such freedoms for yourself. Take advantage of the freedom this country offers but never allow yourself to lose your identity and values you have learned from your parents/caregivers. Remember that at your core, you are a Ugandan-American or a Ugandan; and must never forget who you are. Create a balance on how you incorporate your Ugandan-American cultural values into your daily life. Remember always your roots and respect your cultural heritage. Never lose your uniqueness; that which essentially identifies you from others.
