natalie-13My name is Natalie Schneider Brooks. I was born and (mostly) raised in Omaha NE. And I feel like I am from another country. I was homeschooled first grade through high school and I don’t have the same cultural background as most people my age. I may be a 90s kid but I never played Pokémon, I didn’t watch cartoon network, and I don’t even know the names of the Backstreet Boys. Even as a 20 something recent graduate, I still feel out of the loop. These differences have created an interesting adventure for me as I try and reconcile my identity and understand the implications of a subculture I still feel very deeply connected to. So if you would like to learn more, you are more than welcome to join me in this exploration.
