Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Personal narrative: Struggles with ethnic identity
by Pulido, Brenda, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 60; 1499200
Abstract (Summary)

This project pursues an exploration of the writer's experience with accepting and acquiring pride in her Mexican-American identity. A vivid account of the writer's ambivalence with her own ethnic/cultural identity growing up will be discussed in narrative format, as well as her odyssey during adolescence in finding acceptance and pride. The narrative will offer an explanation as to how the writers experience has altered her understanding and solidarity not only with her own ethnic/cultural background but that of others which has broadened her multicultural sensitivity and respect towards clients she comes across as a student of social work.
