What did I observe as evidence of surface culture versus deep culture

The following are the directions from the professor. I chose Lunar New Year Festival in Alhambra CA. It is from 5p.m-2a.m but please don’t say in the paper that I stayed for the entire time but instead 3-4 hours and left around 10p.m
I googled this event and there will be live Chinese demonstrations, food, merchants, activity booths, cultural pavilions, and many other exciting performances along Main Street, in the heart of Downtown Alhambra. Please write about the event as if you were me and I attended it and spoke to people and all the things the teacher describes in the directions below. Maybe you can YouTube some videos of this event from last year. Also some important information about me is I look white. I am blonde hair, green/blue eyes. However, I am more of a MUT. I am a little German/Filipino/American cherokee and a bunch of other things. So this culture I have not been around a lot. I am around Armenians a lot since I have a child with one. I also attached an important paper needed to write this paper along with the directions below. If there is any other information you need you can message me here. thank you.
edCultural Immersion Activity and Reflection (10% of grade)
In order to fully gain a deeper understanding of cultural groups diverse from your own, it is imperative that students begin to integrate their educational experiences with cultural activities that explore culture beyond the classroom. The Cultural Immersion Activity is intended to address this much needed educational experience. Choose a cultural experience in which you immerse yourself in a culture other than your own.
You must select a culture that you are less familiar with in order to “stretch” and challenge yourself. This experience will have the most value if you choose an experience you have never had before. An example includes attending a festival/celebration from a specific culture. Make sure the event, activity, or community is one that is open to non-group members. You must actively attempt to interact with community members, rather than be a passive observer. It helps to have a cultural broker who can explain the traditions and beliefs to you. You may do this experience with friends, families, or classmates but please use your judgment and be respectful. Remember, you are walking into someone else’s “home”—therefore, do not go in a
large group or be voyeuristic.
You need instructor approval before engaging in your immersion. Submit documentation that provides verification of immersion experiences when you submit your reflection papers.
Important Note: You are responsible for finding the event and emailing the instructor to get the event approved for attendance. It would be helpful to announce events to the class as you become aware of them. Please note that eating dinner at a restaurant and going to noninteractive museums/exhibits does not constitute a cultural immersion experience.
At the conclusion of the activity, you will write a three-page reflection paper that discusses your personal reactions to the immersion experiences (see below for questions to consider). I am not interested in a recap of the day where you simply tell me step by step what you did and what happened. While some of this may be necessary at times, I want the bulk of your reflection to be about what you learned and how you intend to take that information and do something with it in the future. Reflections that include surface-level comments such as “this was amazing” or “I learned a lot,” lack a critical analysis and will not receive full points. Also, be careful to avoid “exoticizing” the community you immersed yourself in.
Questions to consider in your reflection: What did I observe and experience in myself when being with this population? What did I observe as evidence of surface culture versus deep culture (see Comas-Diaz text for examples)? Who am I in relation to this culture (i.e., In what ways am I an insider/outsider?) How will this experience impact me as a clinician? How will I integrate this experience into my clinical work? How will this inform my therapeutic approach? Was this experience consistent or inconsistent with the theories we have learned in class and in our reading?

Descriiption of Assignment: (Class: AFR: Race, Gender and Sports)
Students are responsible for completing (2) essays that closely examine a current sport-related event/ news story. Students should pick an event that they believe reveals something significant and insightful about the relationship between race, gender, and sport. EVENTS MUST OCCUR DURING THIS SEMESTER. Students should integrate course concepts (see course learning outcomes) and reading to strengthen their analysis of the event. Please make sure to include a descriiption of the event in addition to your analysis. Papers should demonstrate an understanding of sports history and have a clear argument. The essays should be 2-3 pages or 2-3 minutes (video or audio). Please cite your work in MLA format.
** An idea I was thinking of was Deion Sanders. How he started out as head coach for an HBCU (Jackson State University) and how much he did for that school and the football organization there but has not made the decision to go to Colorado Boulder as Head Coach. There’s been so much controversy around his decision that because he’s black, he should’ve stayed at an HBCU to continue to help “his people”.
We will be graded as follows:
* Integration of course concepts
* The event reveals something significant and insightful about the relationship between race, gender and sport
* Description of event
* Clear Analysis
* Works cited/MLA format
– I’ve attached some sample essays that were provided by my Professor

Please look carefully at the requirements in the document and choose the second question to write the essay. Although it is necessary to write around the second question, but do not need a lot of external resources, just a little more thoughts and viewpoints, each paragraph should be coherent and not too chaotic, thank you. ( This teacher is strict in checking)
second question:
2. Compare and contrast the role of women in the two main films we have seen so far. In Even the Rain there are few, if any women characters and none take on a principal role. In Daughter of the Lake however, the women seem to be more at the centre of the story. Discuss the reasons why this might be so, and particularly whether or not it detracts from the film or is necessary to it. What do the films say about the role of women in the societies portrayed? What do they say about gender roles in general?
