Cam has even said in an interview that he likes kids even more than adults.Traditional leadership can be effective, that’s an accepted fact. But sometimes unorthodox leadership can get the job done too. Energy, passion, and a slight touch of cockiness can inspire players, the crowd, and people across America like nothing ever seen. Even I, who was skeptical of him at first, have grown to love and respect Cam, enough so to write this

After graduating from MHS, the next challenge in my mission to ascend from my circumstances was to become the best student at The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State). With consideration of my mother not graduating high school, it was imperative and self- driving that I reward her sacrifices by excelling in my academic career.

This prestigious scholarship is only awarded to the top five minority business students at Penn State. In addition to my academic successes, I became very active on campus and served as a leader at the top of four different campus-organizations.
In the article, "Equality still elusive 50 years after Civil Rights Act" by Richard Wolf described John F. Kennedy contacted Congress in June 1963 to pass the Civil Rights Act, but it was later passed in 1964. John F. Kennedy stated: "African Americans born on 1964 had about one-half as much chance of graduating from secondary education, one-third as much chance of finishing higher education, one-third as much chance of becoming a professional worker, twice as much chance of becoming unemployed, and lastly about one-seventh as much chance of earning $10,000 annually".Throughout time, African Americans have made high achievements during their years in high school, but still remained low in college graduation rates. African American 's annual income have increased and poverty rates have decreased. Yet, African Americans continue to reside in segregated and impoverished communities. To conclude, African Americans today face issues regarding their education, employment, and the criminal justice system the most.

Chester County, Pennsylvania’s public education system afforded me the opportunity for an enriched academic experience, as well as an opportunity to connect socially with people of all different races. Coming from a family who pushed academics, I always found myself to be one, of three black students in my honors and AP classes. I believed I could not relate with the majority of black students socially and academically, which is why I separated myself from them. In the rise of my freshman year I joined the Black Student Union (BSU) hoping to learn more about black culture and acquire new relationships with my black peers. Fortunately, the mission of the BSU was to create awareness about black culture, in hopes to diminish prejudice not only in the school but also in the community.
The time that I become aware of my cultural identity was when was in elementary school when I heard my parent talking to my brothers about how society work for African American and that the laws not the same for us and everybody else. That we have to be 2x better, smart, and hard work to be on the same level as everybody else. The benefit being African American is being capacity to rebound from setbacks and become stronger in the broken places, a passion for life and having high energy in a creative way to meeting life’s challenge and being categorized and being able to prove people wrong. Some of the name that I heard people called African American is Black, nigga, Nigger, color person, people of color, and monkey. The one that are acceptable in my opinion is African American, Black, People of color and the unacceptable one is nigga, nigger, color person and monkey.

The National Honor Society is a top-notch group that many want to be part of, but for all of the wrong reasons. There are many traits one needs to successfully participate in the group; Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. During the course of my life, I dedicated it to learning new subjects and striving for top marks in my classes. Learning is an immense passion of mine that will continue to thrive. Throughout the years, I observed that certain people led their group to the correct path.
The media is America’s greatest outlet in getting information. People expect the media to give them valid information, or so people think. In 1954 Brown v. Board of education granted blacks the opportunity to integrate schools. The first school to actually to this was in 1957 in Little Rock, Arkansas. Central High School caught the attention of the world as nine black kids known as the Little Rock Nine who changed history, but sometimes what people saw or read wasn’t the full truth.
