I constantly demonstrate the FBI’s core values such as compassion, fairness, leadership and respect in a day to day basis. I show compassion because I put other people’s needs before mine. Whenever I see someone upset I try to help them in anyway possible because I have empathy and it naturally comes to me to help them out. When I was younger and my mom would look upset, but she wouldn't tell me why, I still felt upset for her because it would hurt to see her angry. Whenever my friends are in trouble, I am usually the first to try to find out how I can help and tell them that I am there to lean on if they need me. When i'm walking around and see a homeless person I try to give them what little change I have on me, even if that means I won’t
Specific purpose: To persuade my audience to be more involved in homelessness in Memphis TN.
I have always been a particularly musical person. When I was younger, I wanted to become a singer when I grew up, but upon joining the choir in elementary I realized I did not have the talent for singing that I thought I had. Continually singing off key and never sounding as good as my peers did, I decided to confine myself to singing at home where only my family could hear me. Despite this revelation that I was, in fact, a terrible singer, I still wanted to participate in some type of musical performance and decided to join the band in middle school. After trying out various different instruments, I settled on the flute and quickly fell in love.
In addition to the grade point average of students, an individual should be respectable, intelligent, and mature to gain acceptance into National Honor Society. National Honor Society is a widely renowned group that only the top candidates should be admitted to, not just for academic achievement, but for being a genuinely good person. Not only do I believe that I portray these qualities, but I have much more to offer, therefore, I should be considered for admission.
Ivan Illich’s speech to the Conference on InterAmerican Student Projects entitled To Hell With Good Intentions is ironic, seeing as he criticizes humanitarian efforts in Mexico and Latin America to the people who volunteer to help these impoverished countries. His opposition to missionaries does not stem from personal views against helping others; rather, from the impact that is actually made upon these nations. Illich’s message that American missionaries are harmful despite their good intentions should be taken to heart by all American aid workers in order to reduce the negative impact of boasting American culture into impoverished Latin American nations.
A major healthcare concern is making medicine available to those who are impoverished and live in underserved areas. I grew up in Gloversville, New York, a medium sized town that was at one point considered the most impoverished city in the state. Growing up in this region has given me understanding of what life is like in underserved areas. I 've witnessed first hand, the difference in opportunity between myself and students coming from a more urbanized background. It is easy to empathize with those who do not receive proper treatment due to demographic disadvantages. Growing up in an impoverished town, I make it my goal to give back and serve communities much like the one that I grew up in. Moreover, another aspiration of mine is to frequently
I am Juan Carlos Gomez and I am a proud Mexican-Salvadorian. In the seventeen years that I have been alive, I have been living in a trailer. I live with only my mom as her job is working in a kitchen at South Lyon County Hospital. I am very hard worker as I try my best in everything I do. I make sure that I give my all all the time in order to go further in my life. In High School, I have taken a total of nine Honors and AP classes combined. I have taken English l Honors, English ll Honors, Horticulture Science, Plant Science Horticluture, Anatomy and Physiology Honors, AP Literature and Composition, Pre- Calculus Honors, AP English Language and Composition, and Calculus Honors. All these classes are achievements for me because I was able to
According to the National Coalition for the Homelessness, approximately 3.5 million people experience homelessness in a given year. Over 500,000 people were recorded homeless in the United States in 2015. In just our 5 months into 2016, we have already doubled that number. There 's now well over 100 million homeless people in the US. Roughly 300,000 of those people are children. Homelessness alters people 's lives in many ways. It is an epidemic that is beginning to spread into the industrialized countries. “The world of the homeless is a tough and interesting world.” says actor Paul Dano.
Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to make a difference and help anyone in need that I possibly could. From the start of my childhood, I can recall helping my mother care for my great grandparents, so they would be able to live out the rest of their lives from their home, instead of in a nursing home. As a young child it was extremely difficult to live with and watch my loved ones deteriorate as they got older, as their condition got worse and worse, and saw my mother having a difficult time keeping up with caring for both of my great grandparents 24/7, it put a lot of stress on the family. However, I am grateful to have been able to help my mother care for them. Growing up in such a caring and loving household made the situation
Doing what I love and being able to support myself and loved ones is important to me. I am a very independent person and I like to do things my way. I like to set individual goals everyday, whether that means doing my homework before a certain time, or completing something for the week.They help me get my work done on time and efficiently. Setting smaller goals is nice because they are like stepping stones to my bigger goals.
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
Volunteering is what directed me to pursue my career as a social worker. It has always been clear to me and I been volunteering off and on since I was 15 years old. I have continued to volunteer while attending college, with activities with feeding the homeless, helping kids with school, helping build home for people who lost them and more. I enjoyed being part of something great that can improve myself and help someone’s life and make a difference in one’s life as well as my own. In my career as a social worker, I want and will make sure to continue to have these experiences and I believe it will make me a better person.
I never procrastinated when I was younger, but as I got older for some reason I began to delay my responsibilities as much as possible. I observed as my peers did the same and left important task to the very last minute. I have stayed up late at night trying to finish a project that was due the next day simply because I delayed doing it earlier. I have run around like crazy and stressed out about filling out applications a day before the deadline because I wasted my time doing other things. I also saw many of my peers doing the exact same thing. I witnessed firsthand how procrastinating had made my life and the life of those around me so much harder and stressful than it needed to be.
Procrastination in some form affects us all. It is present in everyone's life, so don't feel like you are the only one fighting this battle. The truth is, we all have things - tasks, chores, projects, decisions, or actions that we delay or put off.
So making a bad decision is never fun. I’d like to think that most of us prefer not to make them but can’t help to sometimes because we think a bad decision isn’t that bad. It might even be a good one in the right mind set. The point of this paper being to reflect on a pass choice looking at it with the elements of critical thinking. My bad decision is one I think most are guilty of, waiting until the last minute on something important. In my case a paper due for a class that I didn’t start working on until the weekend before it was due. Now waiting until the last minute to start the paper itself wasn’t the bad decision but act of trying to get it done in time since I chose to procrastinate was.
