Throughout my entire life, I have challenged myself not only academically but also to better myself, and my community. I try my best at everything that I do, whether that is in my schoolwork, at home, or at work after school. Often times when people hear that I am an only child, they assume that I get everything handed to me, but that assumption is completely wrong. My parents have always taught me that you must work for success. I believe that I have been pretty independent for most of my life, not only because my parents got divorced when I was ten years old, and because I am an only child, but also because my dad moved to Colorado leaving me with only my mom and grandparents in town as my family.
Although it was very hard for me in the beginning especially coming to a new residence with everyone speaking a different language I am very thankful. Against all the struggles, I overcame each obstacle I thought I was not capable of. Going to school, working a good job and having my son in a wonderful school is easy to find in the U.S which in P.R it is remarkably tough. Leaving Puerto Rico was extremely hard but visiting my family is a yearly thing, but I will not change my lifestyle here in the States.
Constantly I question myself about my past, remembering all the marvelous and dreadful moments i´ve had. Every moment has made me more stronger, maybe more humble or more determined, each of these moments have taught me something that makes me the person (who) I am today. At the age of 8, I was a high performance athlete. Tennis was instilled by my father from an early age and since that moment this sport became my passion.
Besides, I have learned so much over the past few years living in America. I have join sports team and did other services that I had never done before back in Thailand. I also had the privileges to attend school for free until I got to college which is no longer free but I still need to work
I have high expectations for my life, and plan on making a name out of myself, which requires my financial knowledge to be greater than many. My parents have been a crucial aspect in my life because even though they struggled in the beginning, they turned their mountain of debt and turned it into a beautiful life lesson, and they have taught me a great deal. Budgeting, managing money, and not relying on plastic is, in my opinion, key components in a financially stable environment. Difficulties tend to arise more often than we’d like, but knowing how to deal with this responsibility is a crutial.
Every ingredient is tasted and appreciated by the guests who all praise the work of the chef. During the Renaissance, many techniques and components can be found in the masterpieces of da Vinci, Michelangelo, and especially Giotto.
We must acknowledge that there will be times where we lose our position, only to realize where we stand. Growing up life seemed hard, but now I realized how amazing it was; I had a family who loved me and I was never seen different (discriminated), I was always told I had four very impart jobs: have respect for people even if I didn’t like them, do good in school, always ask questions and never forget where I came from, little did I know I realized where I came from after I left. When I came to the United States of America, New York became a dream, but we must all wake up and stop dreaming; I did after my mother past away a year after I’ve arrived. The world became gray, for I was very downhearted and life felt like death because of all the
I always made sure, with the reassurance of my parents, that I had the best grades possible and I went to school everyday because I was taught education was extremely important. I have dedicated a lot of time, work and effort to maintain my 3.8 GPA. Unfortunately, my Senior year was not how I pictured
We enjoy market leadership and are fast expanding. We have the largest franchise network of outlets within the country, having presence in all major urban centres, and are prepared to explore market potential in Gulf, UK, USA and Europe soon It’s a long history of 40 years of hard work, perseverance and passion. The idea of establishing Cafe Students was conceived and materialized by Haji Mohammad Ali (Late) in 1969 with very humble beginnings. It all started from home cooked Biryani and a few other dishes served from a small eatery located in the middle of the city, Saddar, Karachi.
As a child, my mother always worked forty hours making minimum wage while my father had two jobs and worked even more. Although I never spent much time with my father and my mother was always taking care of her children, I knew they loved us very much and wanted the best for us. My mother and father often lectured me to be grateful of my education and to take advantage of that opportunity to excel in my education and become a doctor to help those who are ill. This way I would not have to work myself to death like they did every week and I could support my own family. Every night my mother had us all pray before we went to sleep, thanking God that we at least had a home, food and shelter.
My success is mostly based from my family. They are the ones that make me strive to be better every single day, and that is probably why I like to talk and write about them a lot. The Writing Collection we did was a bunch of flash draft essays we wrote about events that have changed us or our view on life. Out of all of my flash drafts, the one that was by far the best and most meaningful was the essay I wrote about my family, called “Is Family Really Forever?”. It always amazed me how I could write so much about my family, and that’s when my realization of success with my family hit me.
Small changes can make a big difference. I work everyday with students in the six grade and while they live in a multicultural city, the majority of them don’t have any idea what is available to them outside of the ward they currently live. As I’m exploring my options for service after City Year, the only place I believe I can further continue making differences is at the Peace Corp. One of the main reasons why I’m attracted to the Peace Corps is because the volunteers come from all kinds of backgrounds.
I wouldn’t be who I am today if I hadn’t stuck around with Kids Zone. I learned that I had potential, I simply had never seen it. As soon as I was given responsibilities I began to blossom into a hard working. Because of my experience volunteering, it is now second nature for me to go above and beyond, to offer help when I know I can offer it.
