I am proud

I wonder how anyone can be proud of something that they have not achieved consciously. For example, people claim that they are proud of their region, religion, nationality, language etc, basically any inherited identity.  The questions I have are, did you choose to be born in a certain family / region or nation? What is your achievement / contribution in that? Nothing, right? Then why are you proud of something that you had nothing to contribute? If someone decided to become a doctor, and then works for it and becomes a doctor, he/she can be proud of achieving that.
