I code-switched when I went to visit friends at another college. While there I had to keep showing my visitors pass to the secuity guard when walking by.

I was doing a group project with new people in another class when I code-switched. Since they were new to me and I wasn’t as comfortable being fully me around them, I made sure to use a very professional tone talking and texting trying to accomplish the task at hand since it was due in three days.
I was at lunch by my cousins as part of my observance of Rosh Hashanah when I code-switched.

While at synagogue for the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah, I code-switched when I walked up to an older rabbi to shake his hand to wish him a happy holiday. I specifically made sure to pronounce each word more clearly to be seen and heard more professionally and seem more sincere. I also made sure to give a warm smile as I did so to show that same sincerity.
