How does your outward appearance (i.e. clothing, makeup, hairstyle, accessories, etc.) reflect your cultural identity?
I think that my outward appearance reflects my identity as a Greek, European female. Even if clothing differs in European countries, we all have a western style of clothing. I rarely put on makeup. However, I don't think that affects my identity.
How do your behaviors and practices (i.e. rituals, daily activities, routines, habits, etc.) reflect your cultural identity?
I think that my behaviors and practices distinguish myself from other people. My activities are related to my nationality, to my social class, to my age, to my gender.

Our houses are also built with windows and balconies and terraces given that we usually have a good weather. Other reasons why my region or location would reflect my cultural identity could be something that I can't think right now but I have to continue writing. Let's see if any ideas come
Describe a time when you were judged, excluded, or misunderstood because of one of the cultural traits noted above.
First I will try to remember something related to my identity as Greek. I can't remember incidents related to my nationality. As a female, I was once judged for my driving by a rude male driver who did not want to admit that he was not right. It was many years ago, and it was the first year I was driving. I remember that I reacted and I yelled at him.
