Throughout high school I have been very involved in my choir program. Music has always inspired and intrigued me. I decided to audition for Colorado All-state choir my junior year.

Resistance in the Holocaust It was difficult to resist oppression during the Holocaust, but some people did, both actively and passively. Active resistance is physically arming yourself to fight for something you believe in. However, many opted for passivity to fight Nazi ineffable cruelty and injustice more discreetly. In “The Diary of Anne Frank”, “Violins of Hope”, and “Resistance during the Holocaust” we read about various acts of passive resistance. People can best respond to conflict by passively resisting because such acts maintain human dignity, preserve cultures, and give the best chance at survival.

A dystopia is is a place of extremely unpleasant living and working conditions (Julita). In the book “The Giver” the citizens of the community have sacrificed their individuality and freedom. Although most adult members have some knowledge of the hypocrisies involved, they choose to perpetuate the deception, allowing the community, as a whole, to continue on blissful ignorance. Some could argue that Lois Lowry wrote this book as a utopia; while the book does possess some qualities of a utopia, the book results in a dystopia. In Jonas’ community, there is no poverty, starvation, unemployment, lack of housing, or discrimination; everything is perfectly planned to eliminate any problems.

In this essay, I will attempt to apply various concepts of leadership that we have covered through the course of this class by reflecting upon my academic commitment as a student, and developing my leadership style related to the results that I am attaining while I am at this University. At the end of this academic year, I hope to have passed all my registered courses with a grade point average of 3.0. Passing all my courses will mean that I will be a few steps away from completing my program and that in itself brings a sense of achievement and pride in myself. It will also bring out the feeling of self fulfilment in how far I have come.
Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability. In itself, dyslexia is a cluster of symptoms, either basic or severe. People think dyslexia is all about reading, while in fact, it is reading, writing and pronunciation. According to the International Dyslexia Association (2018), “Students with dyslexia often experience difficulties with both oral and written language skills, such as writing, and pronouncing words” (para. 1).
