Suffield Academy Theme for 2013-2014: The concept of identity is centered on understanding who we are as people. It is the distinguishing characteristic belonging to an individual or shared by members of a particular group. Identity is our set of attributes, beliefs, desires, or principles of action that leads us and shapes our self-image and who we are. Our identity helps us relate to others and identify with certain groups. Identity is not a boundary; it is a construction of how we identify ourselves that evolves and shapes who we want to be.
