How many of you have family that has worked in the armed forces? Or how many people have friends that live in third world or poor countries? On December 25, 1821, a tiny Christmas baby, who would become one of the greatest civil war heroines ever, was born into a loving middle class family. Clara Barton had four older siblings that adored her and taught her many life skills that would be crucial for her later career. School was very boring to her because she liked to care for others rather than learn about the world. Clara Barton was a hero due to her bravery while nursing on the battlefield. Even though she never married or had children, she was very motherly and loved everyone like a mother would love her children. She founded the American
As a candidate for the National Junior Honor Society, I understand that is it not important to only have good grades and help the community. Being in NJHS means that you have to be a role model to everyone around you. A role model is someone who is a leader, demonstrates citizenship, and has good character.

I had the grand honor of being born into a culturally diverse family. Although Dominican culture dominates our customs, we are 25% Middle Eastern from Lebanon, and 25% Spanish from Barcelona, Spain.The cultures have all laced into each other in such a way that I find it utterly ordinary to eat Arabic food while listening to Dominican music while serving Spanish desserts. My parents came to America at around the age that I am now, met each other, and my mom had my first sister at 18 while my father was 22. My mom went back to high school to finish her GED while my father enrolled in an institution that he never got around to finishing because his english was not well. My parents never got the opportunity to further their education because they had my sisters and I at such an early age. My parents have worked since the day they stepped foot in New York precisely so that I could get the prestigious education that they had always longed for. My parents separated when I was eight years old and my father was never really around after; as a

The negatives effects – would be that the carer could be stressed about looking after the infant as they might be too small for them to hold or carry. There are many negative effects as looking after infants can be quite hard and upsetting at times. Also, an effect linked to this would be stress of responsibility the informal carer might think that they might drop the baby and don’t want to risk that happening so they just play with her/him on a little play mat but, on a safe place like a seat or bed with a border. Another negative effect would be that maybe they couldn’t supply for the infant like buying nappies or powered milk etc. In addition, being bored of looking after the baby as they are too little and the carer can’t play with them

People around the world go hungry everyday, but it’s not a normal hungry. 795,000,000 people don’t have enough food to live a healthy life (http://www.foodaidfoundation.org/world-hunger-statistics.html ).

In a country like Ethiopia, the economy is mainly based on agriculture and the climate conditions are isotropic, still we are not able to make full usage of agricultural resources. The main reason is the lack of rains and scarcity of the land reservoir water in some areas of the country.
