Im originally from Persia (Iran) but have lived in London, UK most of my life since i was a child.  However, Iran will always have my heart and will always be my true home.

Are you proud of its history?
Yes, The persian Empire used to run the world at one point.  It WAS thousands of years ago of course and we were defeated when the Romans took over, but hey, it sounds cool!!

Is it ever embarrassing for you to say, "I'm from ________" when you're traveling or talking to someone online?
Im not ebarrassed of my origins, i come from a beautiful culture, however, it does sometimes get annoying when people think that just because im from the Middle east i must be a terrorist!!!

If there was one thing you'd change about your country, what would it be?
i think i would change the government so that the country wouldnt have to be such a strictly Muslim one.  I think its important that it keeps its religious values, but freedom of choice i believe is very important. 

Are you planning on living in this country for the rest of your life? If yes, why? If not, why?
In Iran you mean??  I dont think i could live there now.  I havent been there since i was 8-years-old and their way of life is so different from mine in London.  I dont mean in a bad way, just in a different way.  And its way too hot there...........i dont handle the heat very well!!!  I dont know where i want to live eventually, somewhere with mountains, i love mountains.

The Republican Party.

I'll probably live here forever, but, I want to go to Oxford for college. This country is all I've ever known, and, honestly, I'm kinda afraid to leave.

I'm like Miss Hazy, I take living in Canada for granted. But I love my country with a passion and I have no regrets/dissapointment with the decision our leaders are making.

Are you proud of its history?
Yes I am actually. I think Canada has a very interesting history

Is it ever embarrassing for you to say, "I'm from ________" when you're traveling or talking to someone online?
No. But when I went to Paris there were some people there who didn't like me once they found out I was Canadian. Which is weird because I thought Canada and France got along real well, since we fought in all the wars together and stuff. But yeah... I'm never ashamed to say I'm a Canuck

If there was one thing you'd change about your country, what would it be?
Even though winter's my favoruite time of year, I wish it wasn't either so cold or so long. Here it runs from November til early April at the latest )

Are you planning on living in this country for the rest of your life? If yes, why? If not, why?
Yes and the main reason is because I feel so safe and secure here.

What are your feelings on the country in which you reside?

I love New Zealand! Right now, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I just think it's a really good place to grow up in.

Are you proud of its history?

Yup! Proud as I'll ever be. We have some very talented people here

Is it ever embarrassing for you to say, "I'm from ________" when you're traveling or talking to someone online?

Nope, I've never been embarrased of New Zealand. Why should I be?

If there was one thing you'd change about your country, what would it be?

Hmmmmmmm not exactly sure, there's not much I would want to change except for maybe everyone always going "OMG You're so lucky to be from NZ!" just beacuse LOTR was filmed here. I find that really fake and really annoying. Also, New Zealand get's a lot more tourists now which I don't like. It's not like I have anything against them, but New Zealand is only small and we can't have too many people here so I'd like that to stop.

Are you planning on living in this country for the rest of your life? If yes, why? If not, why?

I'm not sure right now. It's too early to decide. What I'm gonna do is move tt Germany(Cause that's where my family lives)for a year after I've finshed school and at the end of that see how much I miss New Zealand and then I'll know if I want to live there.

Australia is pretty cool, though everyone thinks we are occa because of CROCODILE DUNDEE. Australia has a lot of environmental issues it needs to sort out.
Are you proud of its history?
I'm proud of our history (not that there's much of it!) but i'm not proud of how the colonials massacred the Aboriginal people. big booboo.
Is it ever embarrassing for you to say, "I'm from ______" when you're traveling or talking to someone online?
Nope! it seems that everyone i meet likes australia. don't know why, but hey, i'm not complaining!
If there was one thing you'd change about your country, what would it be?
the way the pollies (politians) have petty arguements. they should pull themselves into gear and try to sort out some of the 'real' problems our country faces such as providing relief for farmers suffering because of the drought.
Are you planning to live in this country for the rest of your life? If yes, why? If not, why?
yes. australia is home. there is no other place on earth that is as beautiful (to me). there's nothing like waking up in the morning to the sound of cockatoos screeching. especially at 4 am. that's always fun. not. but i love it here.

I live in the United States and I am very proud of it. I plan on living here for the rest of my life. I would never think of moving from here. I'm never embarressed to say that I'm from the US. I think it's a beautiful place. The only problem I have with america, and I mean no offense to anyone at all, but around here there are many people who have moved here from other countries and they walk around like they are better than everyone else.  They never attempt to speak english and if they ask you something and you can't understand them, they get mad and act like you're an idiot.  I must say that I have never had any problems with any people who are hispanic. I have had problems with Americans also, of course. It just upsets me that people would move here and think they don't need to speak english and that they can be rude and act like they own the place. It drives me nuts.  That's the only thing I would change. Oh, and the president. I hate that guy. I would get him out of the office and bring back Bill Clinton!

I am damn proud to be an American!

Are you proud of its history?
I love our History...that's why I decided to major in History and become a teacher. We fought for what we believed and won. There are so many moment when the U.S. has come together and has done amazing things...and the 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays!

Is it ever embarrassing for you to say, "I'm from ________" when you're traveling or talking to someone online?
No..because I love where I live..people just need to stop looking at our mistakes and start looking at the good stuff we have done

If there was one thing you'd change about your country, what would it be?
The amount of violence and senseless crimes and I also wish we would spend more time focused on ourselves and the problems within our own country...like on health care, helping the homeless, getting kids off the streets and into schools

Are you planning on living in this country for the rest of your life? If yes, why? If not, why?
I love this country and I can't imagine living anywhere else...this is my home....I do want to travel the world but I will always call America home.

I'm proud to be welsh, but not overly proud if you get my meaning.

Are you proud of its history?
Yeah. Might not be happy with some of the outcomes but I think the history of Wales is built on pride with all the wars and stuff we've had.

Is it ever embarrassing for you to say, "I'm from ________" when you're traveling or talking to someone online?
no, Why should I be?

We'd have a royal family.

Yeah, for most of it, I wouldn't mind living in Scotland though.

What are your feelings on the country in which you reside?

I was born in England. I'm proud to be British yeah, my mate always says he wishes he was American which annoys me. It's like, erm why?

Are you proud of its history?

Yeah. Especially of it's history -- less of what it's become. The fact we won both World Wars is great. I love that feeling, and the people who fought and died for our freedom.

Is it ever embarrassing for you to say, "I'm from ________" when you're traveling or talking to someone online?

No. Some people have certain views of the English (especially in Football) but that really pisses me off. And in a way I'm proud of the way we are, and the fact we're thought upon as being a strong nation. If that makes sense

If there was one thing you'd change about your country, what would it be?

Make the country like what it was back in the time of WW1. We were pretty much the most powerful country in the world, now people like Tony Blair have screwed that kinda worldwide respect up. The government don't know what they're doing anymore. And everything has to be so politically correct which annoys me so much.

Are you planning on living in this country for the rest of your life? If yes, why? If not, why?

I used to want to live in America a while ago. But I don't think I will anymore, purely because of the differences in cultures. One thing especially is I couldn't live somehwere where they don't like football 'cause I love it And for, erm, other opnionated reasons
If I do move away it'd be somehwere like Spain.

There is things in America that need to be fixed.

Are you proud of its history?
No and yes.

Is it ever embarrassing for you to say, "I'm from ________" when you're traveling or talking to someone online?
No, I'm not embarrassed to say I'm from America, there really isn't a reason to be, unless, other people know what is exactly happening here, then I guess I am.

If there was one thing you'd change about your country, what would it be?
Can I get two? The government and some of the people(bad people).

Are you planning on living in this country for the rest of your life? If yes, why? If not, why?
Most likely, but I rather move.  B/c there is no way that I could change lives, I would have to get us to other traditions.  I rather move b/c I just don't like somethings that happen in the US.

Okay, for some reason, now I feel embarrassed to say I'm from America.  Or am I embarrassed to say I'm me?   Either way it can't be good, oh well, got to put on a happy face.

What are your feelings on the country in which you reside?
I love australia! i wouldnt want to be from any other place! if anything i would like to have a different nationality in my genes but still be australian! just to add some depth to my personal history! he he he
Are you proud of its history?
I think it is fantastic that australia basically originated from convicts! and there would be very very few real aussies who didnt come from convicts! I think we have a good history with all the gold rushes and everything... until last year i lived in one of the major gold minnning towns of old and so that is pretty important to me! However i am not proud of the way the aboriginals were treatede... i am not really well informed on the situation but i dont think it is anything to be ashamed of on my part as it wasnt australian traits that encouraged that it was human nature at the time and greed that anyone could have done... not that that's an excuse!
Is it ever embarrassing for you to say, "I'm from ______" when you're traveling or talking to someone online?
No way! From my experience people seem to take an immediate likeing to you if your aussie... in general
If there was one thing you'd change about your country, what would it be?
The way the country has dealt with refugees. And how the majority of the teenage girl population are mimicing the behaviour of teenage girls in bad american chick flics! i think australia should keep its own personality!
Are you planning to live in this country for the rest of your life? If yes, why? If not, why?
Absolutely! i want to leave in other countried for periods of time but australia will always be my real home! i want to live in different parts of europe! america doens't really interest me but i want to be an actress so if that works out i guess i'll be living there for a while!

I like France, I'm glad I was born here. But i've never had patriotic feelings towards my country... however i will never complain to live here as it's free and democratic!

Are you proud of its history?
It depends! Some stuff were good, others were bad.. but in a way i'm "proud"  that we have a lot of history it makes the french culture more dense.

Is it ever embarrassing for you to say, "I'm from ________" when you're traveling or talking to someone online?
Never.

If there was one thing you'd change about your country, what would it be?
I guess some political decisions.

Are you planning on living in this country for the rest of your life? If yes, why? If not, why?
I don't think so even though i really like my country I'd like to travel a lot.. but maybe when i'll be old i will settle in France!
