What is your nationality? What is your race? What is your ethnicity? Many do not know the difference between nationality, race and ethnicity. My name is Stephanie DeSouza, and my nationality is American-Brazilian, my race is Latina and my ethnicity is Brazilian. Nationality refers to the country where the person was born or where one holds citizenship.
Although I was born and raised on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, I do have a dual citizenship from Brazil, which is why I refer to myself as an American-Brazilian. Race is physical characteristics, for example Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Latino, etc. However, ethnicity is more specific. It is a combination of religion, language and culture. Ethnicity is the food you eat, music you listen to, language you speak and religion you practice.
