My name is Samantha Delamere and I am a member of Belvedere Youth Club in Dublin’s North Inner City.
Culture has an important role to play in my life as I believe culture provides people with an identity, purpose and sense of belonging in a community.
In Dublin there are so many different cultures living in communities, which is a great way for communities to connect and also learn from each other.
I am hopeful that we are moving into living in a society that is more equal, just and fair.
Culture to me is about individuals sharing the same values and beliefs, and for different cultures to come together and share the history that informs their culture. This is a positive way to integrate people from different backgrounds to come together and live in a community that is diverse, positive and unique.
From different cultures coming together, I am hopeful that we are moving into living in a society that is more equal, just and fair.
