Assimilation is a gradual process by which a person or group belonging to one culture adopts the practices of another, thereby becoming a member of that culture. Sociologists commonly distinguish between forced and unforced assimilation. In forced assimilation, a person or group is compelled to take on the practices of another culture, such as by adopting that culture's language and religious traditions. In unforced assimilation, a person takes on the practices of another culture but is not forcibly compelled to do so. Sociologists use the concept of assimilation to describe one way a person or group of a particular culture (such as immigrants) might respond to or blend with another culture, or how a minority cultural group might relate to a dominant cultural group.

I was a 4.0 student all the way through school, so I was often chosen by teachers to help other students with concepts they weren't quite grasping. I also spent a lot of time tutoring other athletes so that they could keep their GPAs high enough to play sports.
I love animals! I'm studying to attend law school, where I hope to pursue a career in animal rights law. I have two dogs and a ferret, who take up most of my free time with their antics. When I'm not studying or playing with my animals, I love to read and cook!
