I tried to express to my peers how the teacher should have handled the situation differently by communicating with the teacher how to fix their teaching style in order to help the student be more successful. I stated in the post, “The teacher in this situation should have worked with you to help correct the communication barrier. Like you mentioned at the end of your post, you wanted to learn how to work with him.

I sat there nervously wondering why any college would ever accept me, frozen with panic unable to continue any of my applications until I heard my sister’s voice ring in my head telling me how gifted I am and motivating me to continue because I’ll never flourish if I never try. In those moments of self-contemplation, I realized that my sister was the most influential person in my life. She has been with me through thick and thin and I doubt I would have gotten this far in life without her. Throughout my life, I don’t think there has been anyone rooting for me quite like my sister. Even since before I was born she prayed and prayed every night for a little brother even when both my parents and other sister didn’t.
For example, one of the residents: Clara, had quite a difficult time hearing and also it was sometimes difficult to understand her voice. Due to this, I frequently chose to talk to her which enabled me to practice communication with someone who communicating with was hard. Therefor, when I got out of my agency and started communicating with other people it was much easier and I could really notice a difference in the development of my communication

As a teenager, I heard stories of my parents facing a difficult situation- arriving at a new country. My parents, when they recently arrived from Mexico they depended on my mom 's cousin to take care of them and while they did help them by giving them a place to live and helping my dad find a job in construction, they control them by setting a time in which they could eat and influencing my mom’s decisions over what to do. Such adversity led for my parents to 4. move out into a small apartment, with a low paying job no way of transport other than catching the bus every morning. Throughout all of this, my mother learned to understand the world and grow emotionally stronger; they both did. They used that saddening experience to work hard in hopes of not needing to rely on others,
This experience severely showed me how crucial, influential, and marvelous that my sister is to me. Though there are many negatives to the situation, there are also multiple positives. For example, I adapted and learned to be significantly more self- reliant and independent as I did not have a sister figure to rely on for doing all of the arduous activities at school. Another positive is that the relationship with my sister improved drastically as we did not see each other frequently and consequently, had realized the importance of her in my life.
