Do we also use a zero article when talking about other fundamental aspects of who we are? I am thinking of things like gender (I'm a woman; I'm a man) or familial identity (I'm a mom; I'm an uncle).

Hola A

In those cases we tend to drop the article too:

Soy mujer.Soy hombre.

Soy madre. Soy tío.

Unless you want to be a bit more specific. For example:

Yo soy una madre que se preocupa mucho por sus hijos.

I am a mum who really worries about their children.

Yo soy un tío muy popular entre mis sobrinos porque los llevo mucho al cine.

I am a very popular uncle among my nephews because I them them to the cinema often.

Saludos
