My object is essential to me because it constitutes my identity and who I am as a person. This item is part of my identity because it represents my Korean heritage and family, which consists of my identity. It shows my Korean heritage by showing my trip to Korea, which is me experiencing the culture, traditions, and history of my ethnicity. This album also shows my family by showing all my cousins, uncles, aunts, etc., spending time together. This object is part of my identification because I love spending time with my family, and I never spend much time with them since they are in another country.
