but I was always taught to be thankful of the things that I had and to not be so selfish. Having two other siblings helped me prevent the want of being selfish. I do not know what I would do without my family. My family is very inspiring because they show me all aspects on how I should live my life through their experiences like education, parenting, and work ethic.
I’ve learned that no matter how small or big the issue, no one should give up on their own life. Everyone is worth being a hero even if that is just caring for a child. There have been times at Belmont when I wanted to give up too, but especially after the Pine Ridge
The values I was taught during my up-bring, helped shape my personality, these values; devotion in relationships and giving back, are what I will be able to bring to the Delta Sigma Pi community as a member. One of the first things I recall my parents teaching me was the importance of relationships. I was taught and now I believe, that it is highly important to be devoted in all relationships I have. My believe to consider relationships more than a transactional process, and my ability to develop personal connections will enable me to contribute to the brotherhood of Delta Sigma Pi.
Hello! I have been thinking of you guys and your family throughout the years and have wanted to write you a letter, but I have always put it off. I want to thank you BOTH for everything that you guys did for me while I was growing up. You both took me into your family and treated me like I was part of your own family.
My ancestors will help us figure out the wrongdoings in life and will let the spiritual healer by recalling the message to affected families. Spirituality is very common in my culture and it’s known as one of the most powerful remedies to gather each of us to move forward and celebrate our
I want to give back to my parents what they gave to me; if it was not for them, I would not be the person I am today, and for that I will be eternally grateful. For this reason, and many more, family is a very important factor in my life and I will always want to be with those who I love and who love me back. However, these are my own personal desires and my unique opinion on what the American Dream is. The dream differs in every individual and there are bound to be contradictions between people given the fact that the dream is simply an opinion based on what someone yearns
Living on my own has been a wonderful experience. From an early age I was always taught to be independent. I recently made the decision to move out from my parents home. Although it has a tough transition for my parents, they quickly came to realize that I needed my own space. They knew that I was mature and I could handle being independent.
Obtaining a postsecondary education is important to me because I have a passion for helping people and learning. As a first-generation postsecondary student, I understand the values of education. I grew up with my parents always telling me that I am lucky because I will have a chance to get an education, most people live struggling to make ends meet because they didn 't have a chance, just like my parents. As someone who comes from having very little, I always prided myself on the fact that I can, at least, have an education. Also, from the volunteered work I have done every chance I get I believe a postsecondary education will give me a chance to give back.
I also have positive relationships with many other people. My goal each day is to be the very best person I can be and to treat others the way I want to be treated. I also believe that I was raised very well. My parents taught me that there were always consequences for my actions no matter if they were good or bad actions. I was also taught that If I did not have anything nice to say, that I should not say anything at all.
As a kid, my parents always taught me to stand up for myself and others. Basically they told me I always need to kindly put someone in their place. Whether I was part of the problem or not. As quoted, “If you see or hear something you don’t think is kind, saying nothing is just as bad as partaking. Don’t be afraid to stand up for someone in the same way you hope someone would stand up for you.
Mine have simply taught me to appreciate the value in education. Since early childhood, they’ve strongly urged me to prioritize school above all else and to learn from their mistakes, not wanting me to struggle as they did. My father has made me realize the importance in pursuing a higher education—it’s the best way to truly be successful and be able to give my family the life they deserve. From my mother I’ve learned the significance of pursuing a career that I will truly enjoy, since it is presumably what I will spend the rest of my life doing. Thanks to my parents, not only have I been university-bound since I was a toddler, but I’ve also genuinely enjoyed learning.
Their experiences motivate me to capitalize on what they gave me–to become something. I want to be sure that my parents know I’m thankful and know that I will work hard to become what they didn’t have the opportunity to. 11th Grade Columbus High School Anjali Patel 5th
I personally have become a better person because of FCCLA. I take my education seriously, because before I used to blow off my education. Through FCCLA I’ve gotten so much different opportunities, that I’d be lost if I wasn’t apart of FCCLA. Also FCCLA has brought me lifelong friendships, I’ve met other people from other states, and I still do keep in touch with them, it’s also an encouragement or something to look forward to if I do qualify for Nationals. Without my advisor, I honestly don’t know what I’d do without her.
If my parents were not meant to be married, they are now happier and amazing parents to me and my siblings being apart. I strongly believe that everything in life happens for a reason. Yes I do have control over my future but I am where I am for a reason.
Some of the careers identified were, detective, managers, judge, and teachers. My role also taught me about my relationship with my family putting God first, family second, and friends third. It showed I 'm dedicated to building lifelong relationships, I like to be in charge and have a tendency of being controlling and have very little patience, and having a high regard to traditions. I like stability being secured and, protective of my family. SENSOR
