Presenter(s): Meghan Ingold
Title: Hispanic Culture in the Americas
Developed under the guidance of Dr. Rene Ibarra , Spanish

This presentation will expand on the Hispanic culture found in the Spanish speaking countries throughout the Americas by evaluating “Vivir mi Vida” by Marc Anthony and the short film Mamitas directed by Nicholas Ozeki. The song “Vivir mi Vida” shows the mental strength and courage of the Hispanic culture, while Mamitas reinforces the cultural ability to work through hard decisions in life. This presentation will compare and contrast the different cultural aspects of both works to explain the cultural way of life for Hispanics, even those with different backgrounds.
