I am interested in pursuing my education in obtaining my Master’s in Social Work because I have a strong passion for helping people and I can give back to my community. I have a passion to help others and committed to helping people function the best they can in their surroundings, meaning that I can provide direct services to people in their homes or place of work, helping people through social service organizations, and working towards change to improve social conditions. Like any helping profession, i.e. Doctors, Teachers, etc. Social Work seeks to help people overcome some of life’s most difficult challenges.
From my first semester in college I could not decide what career I want to be in. After a long time thinking and researching I narrowed down my interest to political science, and my interests have directed me towards international relations and laws. I am fascinated by how the states of the world cooperate together to build a safe place for everyone. American government places a huge role in the world and many countries need American Foreign Service to help them with their problems. After hearing Melissa Martinez, I understood maybe it is good to think about working in Foreign Service.
Marley’s “Redemption Song” inspired and pursue social change among us. It is the thought and message that counts. Truth be told, music can unite different communities and cultures despite of cultural, political and linguistic barriers. Perhaps, it evokes and teaches us the cultural constituents of other people, allowing us to broaden our minds and understanding about a certain group or
Another goal I had throughout the semester was to go outside of my comfort zone a little, I really didn 't like to talk in front of the class. However, as a Peer Mentor I had to do that more than twice which really develop outside of my comfort zone. Sgo that growth in getting out of my comfort zone was amazing and helped me have some great moments over the semester. Even though the semester had its downs , I would not change the fact I became a Peer Mentor. This whole journey was very reflective to me.
INTRODUCTION Social work is a helping profession which seeks to promote social change, social justice and enable social functioning and wellbeing of human beings.

In Lera Boroditsky 's "How Does Our Language Shape the Way We Think" the purpose of the essay is apparent from the second paragraph. "Language is a uniquely human gift central to our experience of being human" she explains, so that the reader understands how language affects ones thoughts and day to day lives (2). Boroditsky 's use of empirical evidence, factual information, organizational structure, understanding and construction upon thoughts that disprove her purpose, and light tone all aide in accomplishing her purpose. Each of these methods help convince the audience that, " Language is central to our experience of being human, and the languages we speak profoundly shapes the way we think, the way we see the world, the way we live our lives" (Boroditsky 10).
It was so helpful to learn from a new perspective in my choice of field that it has made me appreciate journalism even more than I did before. Personally, the opportunity of studying abroad helped me grow as an individual in ways that are hard to describe. I left my home as a sophomore in college with very little life experience and little to no travel experience. I arrived in Madrid with no set accommodation because I chose to find
Unlike other civilizations, when the Greeks founded a colony, that colony became independent from its motherland. This independence in a foreign land may have led to divergences in culture, due to native influences and spacial remoteness from the Greek mainland. It seems, though, these colonies retained their Greek heritage, demonstrated by their styles of pottery, their burial customs, and construction of the polis. In addition, literary works help explain the nature of colonization and the motivation for colonization. While the accepted opinion on why the Greeks colonized provides the simplified answer of trade and overpopulation, it does not take into account the colonists themselves.
I will also address my personal experience in global citizenship and how general education classes helped me to get educated in this category.

At the same time growing in equality and environmental welfare within our society and being aware of our responsibility to act on global problems that could side rail us from make the world a better place to live in. It helps people to coexist in our world which is becoming a
Likewise, Maria Laura Dutra believes that they are "a great technique for building rapport". Maria Mendionde and Alicia Bustos coincide with her.
