Nare, that is probably the hardest question for me :) When people ask me where I am from my initial instinct response is that I am from Moldova. However, I get tired of explaining that Moldova is a country and where is it over and over. So I cheat sometimes and just say “Romania” and everyone knows. Obviously, Eastern Europe is the place I mostly identify with because I was born there. However, when I go back every year everything feels so foreign to me that it feels like I’ve never lived there! It’s very strange. So I don’t have an answer to that. I identify with a culture where I feel good. Here is my answer :) I don’t even feel guilty about it LOL I really LOVE Latin America so I identify with it ;) I guess the question of “identification” is so blurred for me at this point that i really need to say that I identify with the world!
