Obviously the category that I am placed in way before someone even talks to me is the International group, more specifically, the Spanish speakers group. Specially among other international groups, we are perceived to be as a very annoying, arrogant, and to have the common style of not caring about anything. Still we are perceived as being the "coolest" group among the internationals, because we tend to fit in better with other groups of people because we have a more westernized background. I do not feel any pressure because I know that I am misplaced in this group. Although I speak Spanish and I have the physical characteristics of a Latino, I actually tend to behave in a much more different way than what the Spanish international community is thought to be.
We all have been labeled and we also have labeled others. Sociology helps us to be reflective and understand that the stereotypes have always existed only to close our minds and stop us from socializing in a much more respectful and positive way. It is helpful to stop for a moment and realize how simple it is to create a presentation with all the characteristics that we assign by default to people that we don't know or we've never seen. Let's have a sociological imagination, start researching better before we criticize, and most importantly, have an open mind.
