“It 's emotional,” spoke Mr. Koehn, a socials teacher. “He was so young. It is hard to even imagine myself in good physical condition even attempting what Terry did while suffering through cancer. It really gets to people, the message is powerful. When they showed the video in the morning announcements there were people sniffling in my class.”
“His” and “her” media refers to the multitude of media outlets catering different magazines, television programs, etc. to men and women. This disparity is particularly evident in adult television programming, which has underwent several transformations since its inception. For instance, the men would watch Spike TV whereas the women would watch the W Network. However, the division between his and hers is now slowly being merged together. Television programming used to divide its audience into its targeted demographic niches so that advertisers would reach the consumers their products were designed for.
However, she will go on to admit that not everyone is fortunate enough to achieve success in this country, "But achieving success here is no easy accomplishment for Latinos or Latinas, and although that struggle did not and does not create a Latina identity, it does inspire how I live my life" (Sotomayor). When she says 'no easy accomplishment,' Sonia is bluntly telling her audience that it is difficult for minorities to come to the United States and attain their goals, as well as being represented by people that look and have the same experience as them. She gives life to the reality of what it feels like to have two clashing cultures affect the way you act as an individual. She says, "It does not provide an adequate explanation of why individuals like us, many of whom are born in this completely different American culture, still identify so strongly with those communities in which our parents were born and raised" (Sotomayor). Through her tone, her audience will feel as if the issue she is talking about is a more pressing matter and will see this as a
To Whom It May Concern, April 22, 2016 I am writing on behalf of Carlin Sietsma’s application for a dental assistant scholarship through Fortis Institute. I believe Carlin is an excellent student-athlete scholar that exhibits strong leadership skills with tremendous character. The first time I met Carlin was for SAT tutoring.
The first year, the Science National Honor Society inducted eight students, including myself. As the first President of the Society, my officers and I developed a weekly peer tutoring schedule in the four main science courses offered at our school, a yearly engineer-off (a competition where students are tasked to produce a specific model and compete to see whose design is the most creative and efficient at the assigned task), and sponsored events for teachers to demonstrate engaging science experiments to students. Additionally, all the officers designed presentations pertaining to various scientific careers, and inspired members to explore further into STEM related
This motivation brings very effective result on the performance of women who have their role models. Further studies shows that it is not necessary that the role model should be very famous personality, they can be chosen from school, college or from group level too, who has performed well in the science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) fields. It was further observed that the women performed better in the same gender group rather than in mixed group when their performance was evaluated about their mathematical skills. Role models can help female students in their college or school and can retain them in STEM subjects. It has also been observed that the presence of women in faculty, teaching assistance, or in labs etc also motivates them to pursue their career in stem
I felt as though running for the Freshman Class Vice President would be something I would be great at,” Freshman Candidate Taniqua Hanson explains. Signs, posters, and flyers hung around at each table of the candidates to show their platforms and all they had to offer unto their class. There were about 11 candidates present at this event more females running for positions than males which made the elections even more interesting. The young ladies of NCCU are really getting involved in wanting to make a difference.
Steps toward diversifying STEM fields–such as Kimberly Bryant founding Black Girls Code–are especially beneficial to the cause, but we have to remember that expanding STEM will be a lengthy process; just as it takes numerous, continuous steps to run and finish a marathon, so will the journey for diversity in STEM be as extensive. A diversification in STEM needs to happen. The more variant the minds of tomorrow 's scientists are, the more potential there is for new innovations and inventions. But what is holding this undertaking back is the same thing that hinders equal rights: deep rooted stereotypes in our society.
Mentoring younger students during my lunch times in chemistry, taking part in speeches with the debating society in school, captaining the school 2nd hockey team, as well as house cricket team and representing local cricket team in the regional and national competition, winning numerous trophies and medals, playing tennis and going to the gym regularly, I have the art of time management, leadership qualities and organisational skills. I feel these interpersonal skills are essential and will be a great asset as I train to become a doctor. My passion and resolve to pursue a career in medicine is not a starry eyed one, but grounded in real life and based on in depth consideration. I believe that my enthusiasm and drive along with my experiences have equipped me with skills necessary to be resilient in the face of challenge and to relish any difficulties.
A strong work ethic, a fierce focus, an attention to detail, and a strong desire for success…these are some of the qualities that make Miss Elizabeth Peck a very special young lady. I have known Elizabeth for two and a half years as her classroom teacher and Beta Club advisor. In every interaction that I have had with Elizabeth, she has been the picture of maturity and class. She is an extraordinary young lady who has proven that persistence is the most reliable indicator of success.
I also helped run our school carnival and class booths. My suggestions that were used were the bottle flipping race and treasure hunt. As part of my responsibilities as class representative, I was responsible for getting supplies, setting up and taking down the game, and running the game when students came to play. I am a very good student, I have always earned 4’s and 5’s in every class, social skills, and work habits. I was also involved in a program called women in history at my school.
During my years at Peoria Notre Dame HS, cheerleading has been a big part of my life, and something I hope to continue at the University of Dayton. I am an outgoing and social person and it’s easy for me to learn routines quickly. As captain for both the JV and varsity squads, I have put together multiple award winning routines, selecting the music, choreographing and teaching the routine to the squad. Besides the actual cheer routines, I have used my communication skills to keep squad members and their parents informed. I try to set a good example with my own behavior, I love helping to create enthusiasm for cheerleading in young kids, and I have learned a lot from mediating issues within the team.
Through my four years of high school by being in clubs, sports, and other activities I have had many great high school experiences but my most valuable experience i have experienced in high school has to be becoming a peer assistant for students with disabilities my senior year. The first day of becoming a peer assistant really changed my life. During the end of the junior year i was trying to figure out what it was i wanted to study in college that has to do with helping children and by the end of the first week of becoming a peer assistant i knew exactly what i wanted to do.
Jordan Ashford would describe herself as determined, outgoing, athletic, artistic and family oriented. Academics are extremely important to Jordan; she has won many awards recognizing her for her grades and achievements, such as her induction into Spanish Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society. Setting her goal of having a 4.0 gpa all four years of high school has allowed her to maintain a 3.9 gpa in her past two years of high school. Jordan started sports at the age of four; she did competitive cheerleading for seven years and middle school cheerleading for two years. Following this, she began taking gymnastics lessons and was then asked to join a competitive gymnastics team, which she did for 2 years.
