My dad is really into cooking oriental dishes or other ethnic foods while my mom is really into the typical home cooking food such as mashed potatoes and green beans, etc. My dad listens to classical music and my mom listens to oldies but we have seen a lot of Broadway shows especially while i was younger so we all enjoyed that music together. We don't really have any unique customs. </li></ul><ul><li>Carlie- My family spends time together by playing board games and watching our favorite TV shows.

I did not have much exposure to diversity until I came to college. </li></ul>
