As naive children, we used to believe life was easy and effortless. Oh boy, we were wrong, we can only wish life would be that simple. Growing up, we continue to face countless hurdles that only get bigger and bigger. My life, in particular, has been filled with numerous up and downs. It felt like I was in an endless roller coaster going up and down.
By the time I was eight I had moved six times. Moving around was something that I had grown accustomed to. I didn’t like it, in fact I hated moving, but my parents always had a reason to move. Most of the time we moved because of my parent’s jobs. Normally when my parents told me that we were moving again I’d be a little upset.
Hello, thank you for taking the time to view my resume, I have recently moved to Ontario and Iam eager to discover this amazing province. I have lived in several countries including: England, Spain and Brazil; I am now a permanent resident of Canada with dual citizenship; Brazil and Spain. I can speak and write fluently in both English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Spanish. Due to multiple living locations I have developed my sense and respect for different cultures, religions and way of life, creating an ability to adapt to many situations; by developing scenarios where, "thinking on your feet", being innovative, compassionate, empathetic and dedicated as well as, having a thirst for knowledge and understanding are thriving
A couple of weeks ago in lab we performed Direct Shoot Organogenesis using African Violets. Where we cut the leaves from 8 healthy African Violets, and then cut squares approximately .5 to 1 cm2. Then we placed the explants with the top surface down on a variety of different medias (A-H). The medias contained different concentrations of two different Plant Growth Regulators: Cytokinin and Auxin. (Concentrations can be seen on Table 1.
What would you say if I could show you a person similar to God. Well here it go’s George Bailey is similar to God in my opinion because he saves others looks out for them and most importantly, he helps even when he’s not needed, he always get’s the job done 100%. George Bailey would always try to help others when they were troubled. George stood up for others because he thought that everyone should be treated equally, no matter who you are in life or what you do in life there will always be one person who accepts you for who you are.
It all started with the fourteen hour drive there. Sleeping, listening to music, and blocking out the complaining of my brothers. “Mommm, Carissa’s foot is touching me!” This was all I heard the whole ride there. I continue to turn up my music as loud as it will go and force my eyes shut.
Neura refuge There are different turning points in different part of everyone’s life. A Turning point that I am going to talk about making my life positively better. There are many turning points in my life, but the major turning point of my life is when my parents decided to move the United State as part of the Third-Country Resettlement Program started by UNHCR for the refugees in Sudan called Neura. Comparing to the background that I had and an education that I got, it’s fairly coming united state was my turning point. I was born in Eritrea.
For our very first week the topic was ‘Cultural Identity’ which as a class we defined culture as ‘A set of beliefs and values that contribute to one’s way of life’. Before attending the first class I knew little of what cultural identity actually meant to me it was after when I began to think more in depth about it. I was intrigued by others’ opinions in the group such as considering that some cultures may not be allowed to have certain types of medication or certain genders to provide their health care which was mentioned by Maddison Duggin (Discussion thread topic: ‘Cultural Identity’, 28/02/18). Within a nursing role it is important to be able to distinguish what culture and cultural identity refers to with each individual. As nurses
This scene is taken from the 2010 film directed by Mark Romanek, Never Let Me Go, based on the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro. My initial intuition about the scene is that life in this world is motivated by selfish and deceitful means. Why would humans be made less in order to save other humans? Why would this hierarchy even exist and who determines the ethics of constructing such hierarchies?
In Beowulf, Beowulf’s greatest challenge is the dragon. As humans, we all face our own dragons. Our dragons might be unwanted, but in the end, they help make us who we are. As we face our challenges, we develop habits and we change our way of thinking, which later defines us. Personally, I have faced my own challenges.
My Great Passion I have lived in five different countries. Moving each time meant adapting to different places and making new friends. I was born in India and moved to UAE, Azerbaijan, Canada, and finally to the USA. The most exciting thing I done was transitioning to Canada. I have lived in many places but moving to North America was the most amazing because of the diversity.
They say that I have no impact. That my words have no weight in a planet of over seven billion people shouting to have their voices heard. In a world plagued with famine, war, and global warming, it is normal to feel as though we do not have any influence in the crises of our planet. However, I believe that change begins with just one person. Receiving the Calvin Coolidge scholarship would allow me the opportunity to transform my dreams into existence.
