Fremont High School is located in Los Angeles, California, “sprawled across a city block.” The school enrolls about 5,000 students every year but only 3,300 are in attendance every day. The students read at an elementary school level and are not provided the necessities to succeed. The school is lacking many resources, such as, classrooms, restrooms, and lunchrooms. The school lacks at least 15 restrooms that the law requires. The average class size is about 33 to 40 students per room in 220 classes. The teachers are worked to exhaustion and the students are treated like animals. Fremont High is lacking the basic needs for everyone there and all of the students know it. School is meant to be a place for students to feel comfortable and educated, not what Fremont High School is.
As a student, it is a great honor to just be nominated as a candidate for the National Honor Society. It insists that I have been industrious throughout the past three years of high school– which I take great pride in. I have always shown my best even through my struggles. At the end of the day, my foremost motive in school is to progress. I believe that National Honor Society will help me grow academically and socially by surrounding myself with people who share my ambitions. I want to be able to improve my communication skills and leadership abilities, to help the community through service activities, and to be a good role model to other students so they can see that being a hard-working student is a good
I am deeply honored to be given the opportunity to join the National Honor Society and be among some of the most exceptional students in our school. Being given this opportunity shows my family and myself that I’ve truly worked as hard as I can to succeed. Growing up around adults with a good work ethic has taught me to see the reality in life. Working hard will help create a better future.
I worked with young children in the resource room with the staff that included teachers, special needs assistants and an occupational therapist, who routinely visits the school. I found the experience immensely rewarding to see the progress the children made in such a short space of time. I was able to see and discuss the different exercises that the occupational therapist used with the children in order for them to make progress. This gave me a great insight into the work environment and daily tasks of an occupational therapist and it made me realise that I had the personality traits and abilities that suited this career
Through the experience of working as youth leader for freshman connection I have grown as a better leader. To help incoming freshman was incredible experience for me. I joined freshman connection to serve school and defiantly to get knowledge and team building skills out of it, so that it can help me make my college experience better. I think I have achieved all the goals that I wanted to through working as youth leader. Additionally, not only that but also to work on community service project on bullying has really allowed me to serve as teacher helper. I liked how I was able to assist student to make poster on bullying. It was fantastic experience to help students in class to come up with ideas on how they can serve through different ways

Instead of withdrawing from the public stage, Angelina and Sarah went on to achieve more notoriety, in 1838, Angelina testified at a Committee of the Legislature of the State of Massachusetts, becoming the first American woman to testify in a legislative meeting. Later in 1838, at the age of 33, Angelina married abolitionist Theodore Dwight Weld, and they moved with Sarah to Fort Lee, New Jersey. Although both Angelina and Sarah wanted to continue giving speeches and attending meetings, the pressures of running a household, raising three children, poverty and health issues (Angelina had suffered a terrible breakdown after her third child), caused them retreat from public issues. They still continue to write and support the antislavery and women’s
When outsiders think of Long Beach, California, they think “hood.” They tend to think a city full of gang members and crime. The beauty of Long Beach is often overlooked because music and movie entertainment highlight the negative aspects of the city. For example, Long Beach native Snoop Dogg often raps about his experience with gang violence, drugs, and sex in Long Beach. In the song “Gangsta Love” Snoop Dogg says, “Straight from Long Beach where we gets more naughtier than Comanche.”
Many segregationists had told the school board that they were going to protest at Little Rock Central High School, and not allow the black students to enter the high school. Governor Orval Faubus supported the protestors and ordered the Arkansas National Guard to block off the children. On September 4, 1957, the soldiers stood in front of Little Rock Central High School, and blockaded the entire entrance. This made national headlines, and ultimately shocked the entire nation to its feet. With a furious crowd surrounding the nine students, Elizabeth Eckford said:
The University of Louisiana at Monroe has a diverse group of students, all of which are divided into different sub-cultures. Graduates are a group of students many people might define as responsible, mature, and even dedicated. They are slightly older than your average undergraduate student, and as a graduate assistant, many can be found in a professor’s class or office doing research. There are several types of graduate students with different cultural backgrounds. Focusing on the differences or similarities of the cultural dynamics between two graduates and how their upbringing prompted their academic choices.
The activity I enjoy outside of my classes is Lacrosse. I started playing Lacrosse in third grade by joining the Farmington Youth Lacrosse team. Lacrosse is something I care about because it is something I am good at and enjoy playing. I also like being on a lacrosse team because it helps me work together with other people and collaborate on group projects in school. What keeps me playing lacrosse is there is always something you can do better and trying to be the best you can be is fun and challenging. Some aspects of lacrosse that are specifically satisfying are scoring goals, successfully dodging opponents, and of course winning games. A few things that I find are exciting are faceoffs and when everyone tries to get the ball if it falls
I have grown as a student this semester by watching the mala movie. This has helped me grow as a student because it showed me how just one voice can change so much in a community. From this experience I learned how Mala was an ordinary girl but who ones spoke up for what she believed was right for her community and the people all around her. After she started to change her community on a positive way for example, have more schools so students can have an education and making sure girls were able to attend school more often. Therefore, when she spoke up for what she thought was right and changed people 's life there was some who didn 't appreciate what she was doing so decided to shot her and ended up shooting her on her forehead. The people who did support her for everything Mala did for them but they also believed that she would make it out alive. After all she made it out alive but not with good conditions for example, she wasn 't able to remember many things she did in the past or wasn 't able to walk right or even think straight. Mala had many problems in her body do to the shot she got on her forehead which lead to the her brain damage. Even though she was very hurt and many things in her body changed plus she wasn 't able to be the same person. Mala still
Yesterday, the seventh grade went on a retreat at the St. Agnes church in Pinedale, a small part of Fresno. The weather could not be more perfect. It was cool and misty outside, and room temperature inside. The retreat was lead by Father Sergio, who had come down from Sacramento to give the seventh and eighth grade retreats here in Fresno. The opening remark was “You get out of this retreat what you put into it.” and this point was very true. To experience this retreat fully, one has to be energized and ready to think, as that will yield what the retreat was capable of.
Getting familiar with some of the concepts in chapter ten was new for me. I didn 't really know any of the information in chapter ten at all. I learned a lot in the chapter about a wide range of topics. What I learned will better help me understand people on a daily basis.
