After years of growing up in the Caribbean, at the age of 12 I came back to Amsterdam and found myself, funnily enough, experiencing a culture shock towards the culture and the city that I supposedly belonged to. I did not know how to reconcile the culture that was majorly me (Dutch), with the culture that was partly me (Indonesian) to the culture that I spent my formative years in (Caribbean). I had several cultural norms programmed into me. This as a result makes me very aware and appreciative of cultural differences.
