Two jobs which involved health and people, similar but practicable in different ways. Those experiences made me realise that I have clearly found the field in which I would like to specialise in.
I am an active member in a wide variety of activities. I am very involved in 4-H and FFA. Through these clubs, I have participated in many community service projects. I work hard in the classroom and I’m very goal driven. I have a 3.14 GPA, and I strive to do better each and every day. I have participated in volleyball, basketball, track, and cheerleading. These activities have taught me teamwork, which will play an important role in the real world.
In “Women at Work,” an article adapted from the work of La Verne Bradley published in the August 1944 edition of National Geographic Magazine, the strength and perseverance of women during war times is explored. Prior to World War II, the workplace was seen as “a no woman’s land” (Bradley, 144, p. 83). During World War II woman began filling their men’s’ shoes more than ever before as they filed into factories (Bradley, 1944, p. 83). “At the same time [as preparing and helping their country with the war], [women] worked hard to keep their homes or set up new ones” (Bradley, 1944, p. 75).
The impact women’s right to vote had on economic growth in the U.S, as women in integrated into the labour force from the 1920’s to the 1990’s.
Ever since I was young, I knew that my mother did not have it easy when she came to America. She was a strong single mother, who could not speak English, living in a foreign land. Knowing that my mother had sacrificed everything she had in hope of establishing a better future and life for me, I had to repay her.
The more I realize I don’t understand, the more I discover my desire to know more about psychology.
Societal changes that created greater opportunities for women in education also had an impact on the workplace. From a modest role early in the 20th century that essentially limited women to teaching, domestic work, and retail, further changes after World War II expanded job horizons for women in fields traditionally reserved for men. World War II was a principal reason for this change, as the nation’s war needs created a shortage of available working men, which made opportunities for women to assume factory jobs and other work typically done by men. While women often were not able to retain those jobs after the war ended, the experience created a precedent that women were capable of doing the same work as men. It also made many women recognize
“What Do You See? Dignity in Care” is a short inspirational film by Amanda Waring. She is also an actress, writer and film maker who is rigorously campaigning for improving elder’s care. She is actively working on behalf of older people and trying to create awareness for ‘compassion care’ with regards to elderly bed-ridden people. This short film is an eye opener and is being used in the training sessions of care staff. Her CDs, books, films, and workshops are transforming the perspective of elderly care (Waring, 2010).
and intrigued by the mind-body connection as well as the importance of human activity and occupation in maintaining mental and physical well-being. At the same time, my desire to work directly with people and be able to make a positive and lasting change to their lives by empowering them and helping discover their strengths and confidence in themselves to achieve their goals, led me to a realization that a career in occupational therapy would be a perfect fit for me.
Canada today is well known internationally as a strong and free nation and can easily be one of the most powerful countries in the world. However, it was not always the potent nation that stands before us today, in fact, it took multiple events that occurred throughout its history for Canada to go from the insignificant British colony it once was, to the influential country that it has grown to be. One such instance is Canada’s participation in the Second World War, as it has led Canada to become a stronger nation, and as an outcome, it has undergone a period of growth. Canada’s Autonomy, the role of women and Canada’s participation in Ortona, are just a few events that strongly illustrate this growth.
The nature of the Second World War blurred the line between the conventional and unconventional roles for women. As the war progress, the idea of total war, where all people are mobilized behind the war effort, even if they cannot hold a rifle or fire artillery, became regnant. Women left the home and were thrust into roles which were previously held by men and with which they were not familiar, but nonetheless contributed substantially to the war. In the west, women took a more auxiliary role than in the USSR. The departure of men from the factories and to the front lines created a vacuum, which women were sucked into. In the United States and Great Britain, women were charged with “doing their part” to ensure that the men on front lines were
Washing, ironing, sweeping, ferreting out the rolls of lint from under wardrobes—all this halting of decay is also the denial of life; for time simultaneously creates and destroys, and only its negative aspect concerns the housekeeper” (Beauvoir 380). "The Married Woman" is a chapter in Simone de Beauvoir’s book, The Second Sex, which demonstrates her negative thoughts about marriage and the overall treatment of a married woman. I agree with Beauvoir’s argument concerning the inequalities between spouses and the exaggeration of house work because of the time the book was written.
I watched my mother fade away slowly as she was battling pancreatic cancer. I looked after her everyday as best as I could; however, the feeling of my eventual solitude was unbearable.The thought of my mother’s imminent demise made me feel like my heart was being continuously stabbed. Watching my mother suffer was one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through. After her passing; something changed in me, darkness filled where love once was. I always knew deep down, that my mum was not going to make it; however, knowing this did not make it any easier.
In five years, I hope to be in college, studying about something I'm interested in. I want to get into a good college with a great psychology program where I can learn enough about it so I can turn it into a progression. One thing I've noticed is that it's hard to find a hobby which is directly related to psychology, unlike other professions where your hobbies can be very similar to what you would be doing in that job. I believe that given the environment I was born into, where I have had to help many people to get through tough periods in their lives, I could be a good psychologist. This being my reality, I have grown to enjoy listening to people’s problems and difficulties and trying to help them to the best of my abilities. This isn’t really a “hobby”, but it is related to what a psychologist does. Even though this is the case, one of the aspects that most interest me about psychology is analyzing people, understanding what they are going through, and doing my best to help them. I have been doing this with most of my family and friends since I was little, seeing as my mother needed my help a lot of times and the fact that my friends use my
