Give back to them for all of their hard toil. Being a child of immigrant parents makes you appreciate life so much because everyday it’s an opportunity to be the best you can be to make everyone around you proud. My parents can’t got back to school and get an education so being able to see me succeed is worth their hard work. My parents have taught me to never give up. I know that some doors may be closed on me but that doesn’t mean other doors won’t open.
There has always been more positive people to motivate me whenever I needed inspiration. Throughout my childhood, the idea of having a college education was importantly emphasized. As a result, it was my responsibility to be the first generational child to excel in my studies and achieve a life of good fortune and accomplishments. In the beginning, I found the stress of having further education to be a great weak point, but as I grew older, I began to realize the many rewards I have gained by having the skill to be literate. Learning to read and write became the basis of my development.
I think I increased my academic skills by having not having much friends and them not being in my classes. So I didn’t have no distractions I just focused on school. I also played more sports such as basketball and football. I did well in school to make my mom proud, I got honor roll three times that year then after sixth grade ended I realized my academics were not to make my mom proud it was to make me feel proud of myself. I also didn’t know eighth graders would be mean and bully the sixth graders.
knowing all about the human body and being able to fix what’s wrong and be fit from it will make me happy. I know I will a financially stable life and I will not have anything to worry about. There are various opportunities in life for me. Being young helps me to have time to explore these things Being a welder would be my ambition. In this generation
Air ball— again. My form was lost, coordination gone, and so was my patience. I’ve stopped playing basketball for 3 months mainly because of school work and things going on in my life. I was determined to get my skills back no matter how long it’ll take. I started a game of basketball with other people inside the gyms court.
During the week of tryouts we practiced right after school from 3:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M. I was so tired that I had to come home and go straight to bed. I also missed my cousin's birthday party, and even a few other events because of practice. I missed some school events, too. But making the squad had always been an enormous dream of mine.
All year around I practiced and I could see myself get better but I didn't know if I was good enough to compete in high school basketball. Finally, freshmen year tryouts came, and this year I was confident in my ability but I was also nervous because we had to tryout in front of coaches and upperclassmen I didn't know. Tryouts lasted three days at the end the coaches announced who made the team. The new coach called my name and I slowly walked up to him hoping I was going to make the team. He first said “congratulations you made the team”, a smile slowly started to come on my face and I could barely hear what he said after because I was so happy.
I played it for two years and thought my baseball career was over until I joined the Mountain Pointe Warriors summer team. Some of the negative experiences in your life will teach you positive lessons that can be character building. After my two years of playing juniors I wanted to quit. I wasn’t playing at a high level and I didn’t have the love and passion as I once did. My parents were telling me to play and I declined.
My grandmother has always made a point to show how hard work and a good education could propel me to new opportunities and help get me a better life than she had. This instilled work ethic and positivity inspires me to give all that I can every day and to look at situations in a positive and constructive light. Input from my grandparents and parents has shaped my worldview and actions. While my family lives comfortably now, my parents did not have such a lucky life. At a young age, my mom and dad worked to help support their families and to pay or college.
I've always seen myself as a leader So,I was disappointed to know that In school when they were choosing the Posse Nomene they did not choose me. The Posse Scholarship is a four year scholarship for students who show leadership and accomplish to good grades. When I heard that I was not nominated by my school, my thoughts immediately turned to myself. Was I not a leader? I'm not just an activist fighting for what's right, this is how I am an activist, a feminist.All this started when I was In fifth grade and my Mom told me about this walk for ending abusive and verbal violence.
Marybell came to the appointment after a job interview in which she was approved to go through training and believes she has a good chance of getting the job. Marybell still filled out a referall for supported employment services and said she felt better knowing that she would have someone to help her if this job fell through. Marybell says everything seems to be on the positive and this is helping minimize the depression and anxiety symptoms and stablize her mood. Her affect in the appointment was upbeat and happy, much more engaged than previous appointments. The lessening of symptoms was also seen by her being able to get up early to get to job interview and other appointments when she had been oversleeping and also being able to ride public

During the start and the end of the fall semester year of 2015/20116 at Montgomery College, my life changed dramatically for me. Going back to school after graduating four years ago at Baltimore Freedom Academy high schoolHigh School has been challenging for me, but of course it’s challenging for anybody with the same circumstances of not being academically active for all those years, and almost forgetting all the retained information that was given from previous teachers. I felt like my brain was rotting, yet the really bad part about it is that, I wasn’t doing what I loved, which was playing organized college basketball. Throughout my journey of the fall semester, challenges came my way from left to right, but the hardest of all that I’ve faced are adjusting to the student athlete life style again at a college level, trying to learn and complete all that’s given to me from my professor, and working a part time job to help support myself. Upon my preparation for the fall semester, I was able to work out during the summer at the Montgomery College gym, the gym was packed with other students that where were in the same
