My avatar I made reflects on England and the English heritage. I gave my avatar fair/pale skin because that’s a common physical characteristic that comes from the English heritage. My avatar is reading a newspaper but its meant to be old folklore/legends. Folklore and poems are very traditional in the English culture. England is known for many poets and play writers like William Shakespeare. Also that is why I added a theater background for my avatar, it also shows that plays were very traditional. In England they have queen and kings so my avatar is meant to be dressed in nice/formal clothes to represent the royal side of England.

My avatar represents the Hunarian and French-Canadian cultures. My avatar is wearing glasses because in Hungary, education and college is very important. In fact, in 1395, a college called the University at Obuda was established. Also, many scientists have come from Hungary, since Hungary has very excellent math and science schools. My avatar is wearing a hard hat because mining is one of the biggest and most successful agricultural elements in Quebec, Canada. Coal is Quebec's biggest export and they make a lot of money off of it. My avatar is wearing a medevil dress to show the importance of the medevil period in Hungary. This was a time where the kings of Hungary were at their highest and were the most important part of the Hungarian monarchy. My avatar is holding a hockey stick because hockey is the most popular sport in Canada, including Quebec. In Canada, 164 out of 10000 play hockey. The background of my avatar is a very snowy environment in order to show the cold conditions of Quebec.

My avatar represents a similar looking person to myself. My fathers side of my family originates in a small town in the country of Spain, my ancestors crossed to the Americas by traveling with explorer Hernan Cortes, they then traveled and settled in what is now New Mexico, where most of my cousins and family are today. This is why my skin in the avatar is taner than normal, which is a common characteristic for Spaniards.My mothers side originates from Germany, Ireland, and other countries in Europe. None of my family has traced back to how my family has ended up here.
