Malala communicates ethos in this quote because she is giving herself credit for all the things she is doing and being the voice for many. And Malala believes that what she is saying is the truth and specifies that she doesn’t need a paper to stand up for what she believes in and no one can change her mind about what she is doing is right for the humankind of people. She also credits the younger girls and children who have an education and that she wouldn’t be standing up for what she believes in if it wasn’t for them. Malala also credits her father when she purifies that “Thank my father for not clipping my wings and letting me fly”(Yousafzai,2014). Malala thanks her father for letting her be herself and do what she believes in and letting her be an independent person who longs for the education she will continue to thank him for all that he has sacrificed for her throughout her life the father is on her side no matter what choices she decides.
If I do not get my education, I will not be able to do what I love. To conclude, I want to make my family proud. They came to this country to make my life easier and I took that for granted. Now that I see how much it matters I can change my path. It took me a long time to realize, some might even say it is a little late, but I believe I could strive to accomplish my college career successfully.
Cure Violence is an organization that tries to help out individuals to understand that the can change for the better, and can still do something good in their life. China Joe was a perfect fit into this organization because that’s exactly what he wanted.

It wasn’t easy for him though, he faced many threats throughout rehab and working for Cure Violence to go back to what he was doing his whole life. That didn’t affect him though, he knew that God gave him another chance to make his life right and that’s exactly what he intends to
In Heroes of the Holocaust Preben saved all those people because his friends did, people supported him, and he knew that is was the right thing to do. Preben’s family and friends liked what he did so it encouraged him more to what he does and not give up. “I would be very disappointed in you if you didn’t want to help” (Zullo 177). Preben’s Grandmother was proud of him for saving people and helping out and it encourages him to do it even more. “Stand up and show that you will not be beat” (Zullo 162).
A good one would be the theme of perseverance, as this idea is very useful for anything a student does, even after they graduate. Family can also transcend adolescence because family is meant to be comforting and this story shows that families are not always perfect. If it was not for the conflict of Brian’s parents going through a divorce, Hatchet could have easily been an awakening story instead of bildungsroman, because the survival aspect of this story could be applied to anyone or anyone could have been placed in this
Running away won’t solve your problems. Connor and Risa were able to survive their horrid circumstances because they were smart, and trusted each other. They were the best of friends and had each others back. I believe that if one has someone they can count on, be it friends or family, it makes you strong enough to survive anything. I also believe the book emphasized how important it is to treasure the life you have, because we do not know what may come tomorrow.
After experiencing this my perspective towards my family didn’t change drastically, but before there was no sense of pride, which could be because I was younger and didn’t understand. Now I see all the obstacles my family and I have had to overcome and it makes me feel proud that regardless of what the obstacle was they were able to make it this far. My goals and accomplishments are not just mine; they are my families as well. Taking this into consideration I’m not upset that they didn’t tell me. In-fact I appreciate them helping me cope and pursue everything that I was told I was limited to.

Give back to them for all of their hard toil. Being a child of immigrant parents makes you appreciate life so much because everyday it’s an opportunity to be the best you can be to make everyone around you proud. My parents can’t got back to school and get an education so being able to see me succeed is worth their hard work. My parents have taught me to never give up. I know that some doors may be closed on me but that doesn’t mean other doors won’t open.
There were times when my parents spoiled me but I was always taught to be thankful of the things that I had and to not be so selfish. Having two other siblings helped me prevent the want of being selfish. I do not know what I would do without my family. My family is very inspiring because they show me all aspects on how I should live my life through their experiences like education, parenting, and work ethic. My family’s past experiences also teach me how to live my life the best way possible.
