Abstract

Abstract:

In the form of a poem, Thalia Gonzalez Kane explores how nationality plays a part in our identities and how that affects us, looking at who we choose to be and how we choose to identify. The focus of this poem is the journey of a dual-citizen of Canada and Ecuador who has lived in a variety of places and finds difficulty in answering the not-so-simple question, "Where are you from?" It identifies the benefits of travel, the importance of sharing what one learns, and figuring out what makes a place "home". The differences between "growing up" and "growing" are also identified and pursued, seeking out how these manifest in our identity to ourselves, and those around us.
