On another note, my participants were all Hispanic, except for one who was African American. My Tia Monica is a Hispanic who lives in Laredo, TX.

Well, it is not that hard actually. We just have to nurture and cherish our diversity. What I mean by that is practicing equality and justice in our daily lives. Practicing equality is an easy thing to do unless you are a cold-blooded person, then it will be otherwise. For an instance, it can be practiced by treating everyone equally.
belonging need) but some don’t (Nain, 2013 pg 3). This shows gives example of different personalities and lifestyles in while humans live and can vary based on culture, geography and religion. Nain also believes that this theory can be perfected and can be missing some important daily life factors, meaning his theory can also be modernized based on the society we live in
Dr. Tiller, I found that both JP Morgan Chase and Edwards Jones diversity programs start from the top on down to the customer. For example, JP Morgan Chase likes to treat their “clients and customers respectfully and fairly by staying true to the values embedded in their culture, such as personal commitment, honesty, teamwork, diversity, and community awareness” (About JPMC, n.d., para. 2). Whereas, Edward Jones believes in “making a difference in people’s lives by developing strong relationships in the community” (Opportunities, n.d., para. 2).
As a friend, Nallely Mosher, had said, “I think I’m more myself when I’m cosplaying, I get to do the things that I like and be surrounded [by] people with the same interests that I have…” and she couldn’t be more correct. The cosplay community is a safe place for anyone and everyone to be creative and have fun with what they love. As for the community itself, it’s a loving, welcoming place for those who feel outcast
Maya Angelou once said that “in diversity there is beauty and there is strength”.I think this is a great quote to simply put what lies beneath the word diversity and the benefit of it.It is clear that good things come out of diversity yet it is still frowned upon in a large part of society which is ironic as why would anyone be so against something good and positive that will help build a better world to live in.Nevertheless,the awareness of the importance of diversity is gradually increasing and people are starting to realise the significance of it.Therefore,it is our responsibility to protect and create a peaceful environment in which everyone can feel included in society despite the opposition and controversy surrounding diversity. For starters,diversity is important because representation matters.There is a lack of representation in films according to the research that was conducted by Dr Martha where only 12% of protagonists that make up the big screen are female contrary to the 75% of male protagonists.74% of the female characters were Caucasian,11% were African American,4% Latina,4% Asian and 3% otherworldly.Apart from the rarity of seeing people of colour as main characters,when they are given the chance to take on a role where
Now most people would be nervous of moving to a new school, but all we had to do was move through new hallways since our middle and high school are connected. Freshman year was probably the hardest year I've had looking back at it now and shaped me to be who I am today. Back in 2013 my grandpa had passed away from a rare form of lung cancer and my Mina (grandma) was suffering on and off from it, having no one to take care of her my mom would stay at her house 5 to 6 days out of the week and she would go there right after work. I would hardly see my mom except in the mornings before school and by than she would be sleeping after driving home from Danbury at 5am. My dad was hardly around from work and just not wanting to be home.
Only to learn that it was only half of my freshman class. Before high school, I never changed classes before. In high school, we switched classes and I was not used to having new people in every single class. Freshman year through junior year I was just going through the motions. I would go to my
Yet it was nothing compared to the 6+ hours these kids have been at school every day. Nobody ever says anything good about school, especially in middle school which most of my friends were, so I was very nervous about the whole idea to say the
After actually talking with him she found out she had a lot in common with Maxon. They also found it absorbing how easy it was to share feelings and thoughts with each other about their likes and dislikes I think it’s safe to say that they are comfortable with each other now. Being actual best friends. America even admits to Maxon that she was wrong about him. “He is a sweet, trustworthy, attractive guy.” she
