Good morning Sarah, SPSY 510 (psy of exceptional children) goes into the 13 categories of disabilities in which students may be placed for special education. It's a lot of work, but it is a 8 week class. We meet Tuesdays from 5pm to 10pm. For the most part, two students present a chapter (yesterday I had a presentation on speech and language impairment and another lady talked about autism).
Desperation, Determination and Dedication. Three terms that demonstrate the paragon of who I am. For the sake of excessively alliterating the occurrence of the letter D, I’ll address these terms as the three D’s. Now you may be wondering, how did the three D’s shape my identity? How did I accept myself for who I truly am?

In this paper, I will assess my identity and my personal history and how it relates to social work professions. I first address my personal history and cultural background, where I came from, as well as my experience in working in the community. I then talk about my overall strengths, both in personal and professional lives. My strengths are listening skills, open-mindedness, respect for diversity and eagerness to learn and improve my weaknesses. Afterward, I discuss my weaknesses, such as nonassertive communication skill and low self-esteem problems, and how I plan to address these issues.
So far in class, I believe I learned so much. The main reason I took this class was to learn more about my history and learning more about what is going on right now. In high school I never learned about the history of Mexicans Americans, only about Cesar Chavez, but that was pretty much it. I appreciate that I this class gives me an opportunity to learn more about Chicanx and gives an open space for all us to speak our opinion. One thing I look forward to learning and researching is the Chicano Movement.
English 105 has been a pretty interesting class so far this semester. Recently all of the students were assigned the unexpectedly difficult task of creating a resource guide for incoming freshmen in their selected majors. Thinking about this project in my head, it seemed relatively easy but when it finally came time to create my rough draft, I realized it was more complex than I initially thought. There is so much I did not know coming into Howard and though it felt exciting to learn the area and meet the people, there were some misconceptions and unexplained information that did hurt my overall experience as a freshman. Trying to organize what information to share and decide what parts to include was a very difficult task for me.
When I began the Minority Student Program (“MSP”), I had expectations that through the program I would gain insight into the requirements for success in law school. I was grateful that I was selected to participate, because I wanted to be fully prepared for the first semester. Fortunately, MSP introduced me to the law school community, allowed me to build relationships with my peers, and enabled me to thrive from the first day of classes and beyond. The program has made a tremendous impact on my first semester of law school. Additionally, I was welcomed into a community with a scope beyond the current MSP students and faculty.
Coming into this class for the second time, I already had a decent amount prior knowledge about many of the issues surrounding incarceration. I had learned much of this last year, and I was very much aware that I had a keen interest in the subject. However, I was (and am) still extremely eager to learn as much about this subject as I possibly could, and refresh and expand my knowledge.
I was born on August 16, 1996. My mother has always told me that she knew I would be an impatient person: not only did I come a week early, there were only three hours between her water breaking and hearing my first cries. I was born into a somewhat poor family, but we always had enough to scrape by. A lot of people look back on their childhoods fondly, but I’m afraid I can’t say the same.
