Ever since then Selena has been performing in front of crowds. The first time she performed in her parents restaurant she knew that’s what she was born to do. Selena started small just like most popular musicians do. She and her siblings played their songs at state fairs

It was not until I got into college did I finally realize I was different than the majority. Before going to college, I had already known I wanted to join a sorority.

Though she had already made plans for me to go to a new voice teacher that could prepare me for college auditions during my junior and senior year, I was sad to see her move.

As a former opera singer herself she told me about some of her experience of performing, which gave me some idea of what to

Through this course and backpacking trip, I was able to gain insights on why I was like this.

Another example of characters not being able to reach the American Dream is Curley’s Wife. She constantly brings up the fact she was almost a star. She had “met a guy, an’ he was in pitchers.
Eventually, these organizations became more than an academic environment, and started to become a bonded group full of strong and dependent relationships. By the end of the century, members started making time for parties, sports, dances, and other social events. This gave way to modern day Fraternities and Sororities (“History Greek Life”). Many modern concerns about Greek Life center around the fact that the focus has turned to the social aspect and left behind the founding goals and the positive outcomes of this system.

Becoming the Vice President of Public Relations for the Rho Beta Chapter is a Phi Theta Kappa activity that has had a profound impact on my life, both socially and academically. When I initially joined Phi Theta Kappa, I was unaware of the high caliber of company that I was joining. The Phi Theta Kappa community is one where members encourage each other to challenge themselves academically, and invest wholeheartedly in their community. Running for and holding an office in the Rho Beta Chapter has given me the opportunity to meet and develop relationships with my fellow members. Since holding this office, I have met and befriended many new people who continuously inspire me.

First, after I got general facts about her, I asked questions about her past relationship. She didn’t mind actually; she was quite happy to speak about her past lover and the memories she shared with him. “How did the two of you meet?” I asked, not sure where to start. “We met in Shreveport at a music festival.
I was five years old, nervous, excited and just about as anxious as one could be as I stood front and center on the stage. The lights cut on, the music started and I gave the biggest smile I was able to deliver to the audience; it was my time to shine.
