What Does It Mean to Be Portuguese?

Me probably 1994/ 1995

Quite honestly, it is difficult for me to answer such a question. I almost dare to say I don’t know! I don’t know what it is to be Portuguese. I have always found it difficult to identify with something greater than myself, like nationality. So, I don’t really know what it is to be Portuguese. But on the other hand, I know what it is to be Bordonhense, a name that seems foreign even to the Portuguese.
