Acculturation can be described as the process of adapting to a culture, a different set of values, and customs. As an immigrant, acculturation is adjusting to a new environment without sacrificing a part of your own cultural identity. It is to feel alienated, and the vulnerable state of un-becoming to conceivably one day become fully.
