The waterline of visibility has allowed me to reflect on the different aspects of my identity. I have come to understand that more of the iceberg to represent my personality is exposed when I am among family and close friends whereas, I tend to be rather reserved when speaking to new people. If I can find something in common with someone new I manage to become more open, but part of my identity is not being immediately talkative. I have also noticed that I do not associate my race or gender as something that allows me to be more open with someone, but it is rather their overall personality that allows me to connect with someone. Additionally, it allowed me to reflect on the prejudice that I may have when meeting someone new to try and prevent it from clouding my judgement of someone.
