Although the officers recognized that some of the crimes committed by their clients were very serious, they also noted that the vast majority of their clients had been exposed to extremely difficult circumstances. (Umamaheswar ) I agree with the author that probation officers must not judge their clients, no matter what they have done. I believe that probation does work on youth when they feel that they have an advocate on their
I wanted to enjoy my life, but not in way where I took the wrong action to please myself. I discovered that I wasn’t a person who likes to feel that upset all the time and always be thinking of what I did wrong. Instead I wanted to be the person who learns from a mistake and improves from it. I discovered that I can change for my well being and for the well being of others. In addition, over the course of this stage in life I learned to find out what who I really wanted to be.
My life and journey towards Cornell has been one characterized by struggle. Throughout my childhood, I was raised in two families which highly valued critical thinking and education. As such, I was always expected to ask “Why?” “Why?” was the question that could bring me an education. “Why?” could help me learn more about my surroundings and how I could improve them. I also asked that question when my mother and birth father divorced. I questioned why my father left and why my mom and I moved. What I realize now is that, without my parents divorcing, I could not have received the opportunities afforded to me.
When I was younger all I used to do was worry about my family, and what I would become later in life. It wasn’t until about Freshman year that I learned to let go and whatever happens, happens. Once I learned to do this I later came to accept who I was, and I learned that everything would be okay. After I did this I became happier in my life.
Not only with a single individual but even a community. The more offenders I can help the more likely I will be able to reduce crimes in a certain community area. Although "it 's not guaranteed that the offender will be too happy, but this is where one as a probation officer needs to be physically and emotionally strong to get the job done." (Pauline Tait).
No matter what time zone I am in, my phone buzzes most frequently when I am asleep. Whether a missed call from a friend in Kenya, an email from a musical collaborator in Canada, or a LinkedIn message from a U.K. investor in my educational startup, I eagerly wake each morning to many new notifications. Growing up, I traveled extensively, living on three different continents. In fact, my passport looked like my coloring book. Learning five languages and adapting to foreign environments while maintaining my identity, has taught me to value different skills, including networking.
I never even got to say goodbye. When my dad left it was the hardest it's ever been for my family and I, and we were never quite the same. After a while I began to fill into my father's shoes. “Aaron, one day you’re going to have to raise a family of your own. You’re a man, you’re going to have to be the provider for the family.” These words spoken by my mother have run deep through my soul and has shaped me to the very being I am today. I have three sisters, a mother, and a niece. Being the only boy in a family full of women is tough; it seems like the transition from being a boy to a man swiftly creeps upon you, and you suddenly inherit a large sense of responsibility within the household.
They have to be encouraging and have to have a strong moral character. Encouragement from Probation Officers can help turn someone 's life around. One story about how Probation officers changed someone 's life , was about an 18 year old girl who was involved in gangs and got into many fights. She got encouragement from
This is because I question if I could have done a better job of compartmentalizing my personal struggles with family matters and mental health. This is something I have struggled with, but I am proud of the performance I put forth, because I know that even staying in college seemed to difficult at times. More than that I value the experience as it slowly taught me how to compartmentalize at a high level, something that I know will be useful for a career in
So far, my life has been full of change. I was born in, India, and moved around for many of the early years of my life. I went from, Toronto, Dayton, Cincinnati, Wheaton, and finally, Elk Grove Village, in a six-year span of my life. These formative years were great for me because my parents always pushed me to do my best. Academically, I was pushed into performing the best I could such as trying my best in English class even though it was a struggle in the beginning.
Knowing how to sing is a blessing that may come naturally to some people, but to others it requires practice and effort to learn how to properly develop this gift. Having seen many live performances and having a dad who could sing was an inspiration for me to develop such a talent. Music has always been my passion, and I knew that singing would give me another exciting opportunity to enjoy the feeling performance creates. I did not have a natural voice from a young age so learning to sing was challenging and pushed me beyond my orchestral limits--emotionally and physically--but with the strong desire I had and the toil I was willing to endure when learning this art, I persevered to becoming a singer.
A change within my life that helped me grow was getting a job. My first job, was as at Little Caesars as a shaker-boarder. My motivation was to help pay my family’s bills. I had to perform tricks, dance, and wave a sign on the corner of Holgate and Division. Eventually motivated I moved up the ranks from shaker-boarder, dish washer, to preparing dough, all during my last term of high school. However, my parents worried that I may dismiss my education for money. After discussing the matter though, it was agreed I would keep my job to pay for college.
Going to college has always been a dream of mine, I never knew what I wanted to major in or any clue of what career I wanted to go into. It all started with my love of finding out more about the world around me I thought is was just my curiosity like everyone else but it was something different. That’s when I found my love for science. At first I really didn’t see my love for until sophomore year of high school when we would get on a subject and wanted to learn more about the particular subject not just what was in the book.
Aziz Shavershian, Aka “Zyzz” once said “If you do not enjoy it and you want to do it just for the end result, might as well give up, because you wont be consistent.” Zyzz’s quote has motivated me to love what I do, and achieve more than the everyday mundane lifestyle. Zyzz has helped me through my path of obtaining a greater self esteem. I felt like a nobody,but then gradually I have risen to being positive about myself, to living life interesting and fun. I have learned to love what I like and to achieve it before I start hating on someone else for doing it.
This event changed my life for the better and without going through that tough time I would not have been able to see the light of all situations, in reality and when I
