His accomplishments allowed for him to open a barrier that was put up for a long time for Latinos in the film making industry. This was positive because he worked on many famous Hollywood films which only marked the beginning for Latinos in the film industry. Indeed, while there are plenty of positive Latino roles in films, Latinos and Latinas should be included in more positive roles as opposed to negative ones. It is only fair to Latinos that they be accurately represented in films and T.V, however not much has changed, with the acceptation of a handful of movies that depicted strong, intelligent, and heroic characters, there are still some films and shows who represent the bandolero image as well as the Latin lover and the spicy “hot tamale”
As a child, I have played a variety of sports including softball, volleyball, and basketball, although softball has always been my main sport. I used live in Bolingbrook and was about 10 years old, when I was playing for the Inhouse 10U Bolingbrook Panthers softball team. My father was the coach for our team, so which meant I’d practice a lot with him. I would practice extra after school, focusing on my main positions on the field, which were pitching and third base, I would also practice batting. My father had always motivated me to become better in sports and school, he also prepared me for college by training me.

The film Jaws was an enjoyable film and has always been one of my favorites. I have watched it many times, but one of the things that always kind of bugged me with this particular film was the acting from one of its members. Some of the characters were portrayed in a logical manner, while others were not. They had specific roles that they were supposed to play and no matter how strange those roles were, they stuck to them and played them well. The special effects used in the movie were sometimes subtle, but used in a very powerful way as well.
King Arthur was a very powerful and intelligent king. From childhood, he learned many virtues and lessons, but he didn’t know that the lessons he was learning had to do with becoming a great leader.

I will be talking about Ben Carson and why he is a great reincarnation of King Arthur.
