I started to lose touch with the Mexican side of me. My Spanish started to lag, stopped celebrating our holidays, and only focused on American culture. I came to the realization that I was losing a part of me when I was asked to translate for the new kid in class, he had just moved to the U.S. from Mexico and didn’t know any English. I managed to do the majority of the translation, but as time went on it got more difficult explaining history. But at that point, we had already become friends and I was helping him with English and he was helping me improve my Spanish.
Since it’s a highly known topic in the lower class studying it will help them have interest on school because it is something that they are really passionate about and very familiar with. By them going to college doing something they love, this will reduce the number of potential people that could be involved in violent or criminal activities. So De la Rosa views this as a potential outlet for low income families not as a road block. So both authors believe that Hip hop has influence on culture but the views on those influence is different for both authors. In conclusion
The school systems aim to please these new age college students because they essentially pay the bills. Consumption maybe on the rise but college students are more than the shrewd remarks Edmondson argues in his piece. Although his experience as a professor leads him to the assumption that all college students are the same, he has not encountered the whole population. Edmondson’s challenges are learning how to complete with the twenty first century ethos. He has to learn how to adapt to the changing society.
Classmates need to make these students feel welcome. Not only are they just as smart as them but they might even be of higher intelligence. At the end of the day, every student is there for the same thing and that is to learn, Undocumented students have everthing against thme, the least the university could do is show that the campus is in fact 'undocufriendly'. Just support is enough to suceed, and if the learning is happening in a safe welcoming environment then there will be great things coming from these
As a result, Clint feels as if he has to put in extra work not only for himself, but for the other two children in the class. Looking, speaking, or acting in a “different” way from what others are used to make it harder for people to be accepted for the way they are. When I was a high school freshman one of the classes I had to take was Spanish. I for one wasn’t looking forward to this class because I am a Mexican-American who grew up in America in an English speaking home. Although I was born here, my father and his parents are from Mexico.
But the most important knowledge that I received from attending the event was knowledge about myself. Most, if not all the artists talked about identity and their struggles as Chicano’s with finding it. Growing up I would pretend to be Spanish and would reject the label “Mexican”; to me, it was an insult. I remember being in my middle school Spanish class and pretending to not know how to speak Spanish, yet I always managed to get good
After the talk, parents should understand the reasons why these students are having hard times at universities and feeling stress. They should not pressure their children anymore and give a lot of love and support in whatever their children decisions are. University students also need to help themselves by open up more to other people and have good time
Mexican are hardworking generous, and kind people; they express their pride by working hard showing other ethnicities than they never give up and will struggle to chase their dreams. I grew up pushing my Mexican culture to the side because I didn’t really practice the culture r was fascinated too. Instead, I was Americanized my first language was English, I ate fast food instead of Mexican food I dressed more casual than the clothing in Mexico. I did practice the same religion like my parents but I never really got into it Catholicism. As a little kid my parents took me to many parties with Mexican music playing in the background and I never really enjoyed it like my parents did dancing around.
At times this will reveal itself, with my inability to speak much Spanish, and when this happens I sense a slight change in demeanor that isn’t excluding but recognizes the lack of shared background. My different family backgrounds have also taught me about the differences between interaction with my hispanic family and my white family. I love them both equally, but there is a different atmosphere with each of them. In my hispanic family, there is an overwhelming sense of acceptance and family. My grandmother’s family gets together every other year for a family reunion and at these reunions, there is a huge emphasis of family.
For example, Warhawk Academy offers all of its members the un-restricted access to park anywhere on campus. This exclusive benefits is to promote promptness to class and to relieve stress about parking violations. Other organizations will talk about the unfairness and the thoughts of others about the situation. Another negative comment one might hear about Warhawk Academy is that the organization is very competitive and selective; however, this fact is only partially true. Competition only occurs when one reaches the junior year of college because the availability decreases as the number of years increase, since Warhawk Academy has exclusive features such as; discounts on books, un-restricted parking, and early access to technology.
I wish to practice my English and make friends with local people, but I am also worried that they probably don’t like international students. I am afraid to not be accepted by them and this new environment. As the Chinese student who interviewed says, “international students really deserve to be accepted on campus.” I can feel the sympathy of this. Then the article gives the solution how colleges solve these problems; that is, another interview as an example from a Chinese student about the international buddy program. I remember my buddy when I am in Australia’s high school, it is a good plan for me and my buddy because we are not only helping each other study, but also the buddy helps me to know more about local people and culture.
William Zinsser writes in the selection, “College Pressures” about the social, political, and economic pressures of going to a major university and how it encourages students uniformity and overachieving. Zinsser states numerous times when students ask for help to balance a normal life, while still satisfying the needs of themselves, their peers, and their parents. While he explains all of this, it is hard to believe that he is not only exposing a difficult situation, but also trying to bring change to this situation. Many times Zinsser explains how everyone wants to take the “right” road, which is the safe, easy choice for students to get them exactly where they want to go in a safe way. Even if that is truly not what they want to do, or what
We played soccer, football, and sometimes basketball. When I passed to 6th grade all my friends went to Tejeda while I went to Bush. This wasn’t so bad for me because I saw a chance to make new friends, and I have, although I still miss my other friends I feel like I have more friends here. Recess; recess was the best part of the whole school year. I got to hangout with my friends we would play soccer, football, and sometimes basketball I got to talk and talk and talk without getting in trouble from the teachers!!!
It 's a learning experience for a few veterans, but with the help of Point Park veterans have their admission fee waived and get early registration.
