My Culture
My Culture

I come from Guinea. In my culture, we believe only one God (Allah) exists, we are very respectful, we love each other, we respect each other, we respect our elders. We wear clothes that can allow people to respect us. Men generally wear slacks and short-sleeved or long sleeve dress shirts, but jackets and ties are very rarely worn. Women wear Abaya or Jilba (means a full-length outer garment, traditionally covering the head and hands, worn in public by some Muslim women), Hijab (means a head covering worn in public by some Muslim women), and Burqa or Niqab (means a veil worn by some Muslim women in public, covering all of the face apart from the eyes), skirts or dresses, which are usually quite traditional. It is rare to see people wearing t-shirts, jeans, short dresses, skirts or hems that fall below the knee. We do family meeting, every month we pick one day at the end of the month and we meet at someone's home in the family, we bring money and we take money and put it in a safe place, and someone in the family will keep the money, so that if someone in the family need help, like if we have Marriage, if someone is born, or if someone dies, we can use that money to help the family. It's very important to have a family meeting, even if it's one day of the month, because you will get to know each other, and for example if you have hatred between you, everything will end. Because of my culture I am very proud of myself, and very happy because it is the best culture in the world. I thank my god for putting me in a good family.
