In that dollhouse I felt invincible. It was where I spent most of my time as a child, enjoying the beauty in the simplicity of life. Sadly, I outgrew that dollhouse and the backyard had work done to it, meaning my dollhouse was no longer with me. The dollhouse that nurtured my youth was torn down. And in a way, I still search for that dollhouse every day, looking
The quote at the end of chapter one states, "A child who has not pretended, doodled, danced and hummed will not only have trouble reading and writing, he will have trouble BEING" is true on many levels. If you, me, or anyone else for that matter was to think back on what each of our respective childhoods were like, most of us would recall carefree days spent making up our own little worlds, languages, and even secret lives lived separately from parents. Those days in our childhoods shaped us to an extent into the people we are today, so to imagine for even one moment that we were children who had never pretended, doodled, danced and hummed is a somewhat horrifying thought. Chapter one in our Arts Integration textbook tells us the wonders that
Throughout my life, I have perception of the world has changed with the aquiration of new knowledge. Throughout my life I have began to gain consciousness of issues that people of color, people like me, Latina, immigrant-descent, low-income face in everyday life. I always knew since a young age that I wanted to help people, my people. I knew I had to become someone to have the ability to be herd and listened too regardless of the color of my skin, someone worth remembering, someone who created change, someone who my parents could be proud of, but most importantly someone who I can be proud of. When I came to UCLA, a young naïve Latina, who left her bubble community back in Huntington Park, CA, I became aware of how other students were way
Which is why he feels bad that he didn’t know what I was going through and wasn’t there to help. I told him about everything that happened. I wanted to be honest with him and I felt like I should trust him with my past because I see a future with him. This will probably sound mushy but it’s the truth. I’ve never been more comfortable or happy with anyone and he treats me the way I should be treated.
I had ideas, but I didn’t have anything I was extremely passionate about yet. My junior year, while I was going through a rough patch in my life, I started to work at a daycare to get my mind off things and make a couple extra dollars. After only a couple shifts at the daycare, my passion was incredibly clear… teaching children. I was able to help children who needed me and it made me feel an incredible sense of worth at a time when I felt worthless. The way their problems were so small, the way they smile endlessly, and the way they were so innocent and untouched by the troubles of the world made me want to always be around them.
I would recommend this book because it is a page turner once you get involved in the book. I had mixed opinions about this book because I found the start to not be very exciting, but after a little while once the Joads got moving on the road to California it became a lot more intense. The family faces many hardships along the way such as losing family members and also having two die, but they also meet many new people. The main idea of this book was family because no matter how bad it was Ma was able to keep the family composed. There were many characters throughout this book and I like a few of them, but I didn’t like a few of them.
This program has challenged and forced me to think critically about social issues that are placed on disadvantaged populations. I am no longer easily intimidated by others or shy and often voice the importance of changing the injustices and biases that are faced by vulnerable individuals. As an individual who once had tunnel vision, I have become well-informed and appreciative of the differences and views of others. This program has taught me how to form relationships without placing bias or prejudgments other people, I have been introduced to a whole new world. Engaging with these individuals have taught me how to work collaboratively, collectively, and cohesively as a group member.
The reason I did get things that I wanted is not for any good reason, but because I am the middle child. Being the middle child is also hard because you never get any attention, and even when I do get attention, I am getting it for all the wrong reasons. I am not getting all of the attention because I am the favorite like my sisters are. I may get attention from my mom, but only because she feels bad because she thinks I might have the “middle child syndrome.” Although events like these happen everyday of my life it does not affect my life as much as some would think. I have learned to deal with the fact that I will never be the favorite, I will never get the same amount of attention as my two other sisters, and I will never just be treated the way I want like my younger sister.
• The factors that were most influential in these changes were realizing the way I communicate will affect my identity and those around me, we make positive communities through constructive communication, and I needed to be face conscious and person centered. • My perspective of conflict changed through this semester by realizing conflict doesn’t always have to be seen in a negative connotation. Even though there can be some
There is no person in this world who doesn 't want to be happy and successful. Happiness, among other things, is conditioned by the success we achieve in society. Throughout our lives, we are constantly learning new things. In children, the desire for knowledge is mostly based on curiosity, but as people grow up, they start thinking about the benefits they can obtain from that knowledge. From all challenges I faced in my life, I realized that my own happiness depended upon the contributions I made to the society.
My general occupational themes came as ASI (artistic, social and investigative). Particularly artistic theme is not surprising to me, because I value the aesthetic and artistic themes to energize my inner world. Thus, art is the essential component for my personal development. From this perspective, counseling can be considered as an artistic job, because it also requires creativity in addition to the theoretical foundation. I decided to pay more attention my artistic part during my career development, which it will make me more flexible and creative in my
