what is it?

Culture is the shared belief, attitude, feeling that a group possesses which makes that group who they are or what they do. Usually, we connect culture to ethnic, religious, and social background. The above photo is of the Taj Mahal,  a monument located in India. It was built by Shah Jahan to honor the woman who died giving birth to their child. It has not only been a place for Indians to visit, but also couples from around the world. Anyone who is anyone in love have come, or plan on visiting the Taj Mahal.

ones own culture

Your culture is more to you than anyone else. To someone else it could be good music or good food. But to you, there is a story behind everything you do. Since the movie Black Panther has Image result for african clothescome out in theaters, the fictional land of Wakanda is spurred an Afrocentric style of dress.

limits

If there are any limits to just knowing your own culture besides not getting to know something else great. You also limit your opportunities to work in so many environments. When you are a universal person, you are able to travel and live anywhere in the world. For me, growing up in a predominantly African American family, my mother always wanted us to learn other cultures in addition to our own. She felt that it opens up so many doors for you to go so many places.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
