Why would I? Maybe one's nationality would change if he or she became a citizen in a different country, but their values wouldn't all the sudden drop, and switch over to the new country's values. Over time one might transition into whatever culture they might move into.
I think your claim was off topic.
The phrase "I'm...." isn't very specific, but when I hear it, as I bet most people think of it as the same, I think of what culture I am a part of.
