If Jolly did not learn CPR, her life as a mother could change if something did happen to her child and she did not know what to do.

Being a sibling was what initially started helping me learn how to work well with others. With my oldest sister being almost ten years older than me, she graduated high school before I even made it out of elementary school.

I took her advice, and at the beginning of my freshman year, I joined my high school’s student council association. I naturally loved competition, so I ran for an officer position for my grade.

Often times in the book, Aunt Alexandra is inferred to be an inferior mother figure to Calpurnia.
She develops the urge to step up, and now make something of herself. This really shows how she matured from the early stages until this point. Another way the Mom’s Up Program impacted Jolly was it got happy about something for once. “Now Jolly never got excited in liking a job before, I know for a fact” (169). This is also showing how, when she actually makes the attempt to find something she likes and is good at, it makes her feel a certain way.

Obstacles can be challenging, and difficult, but people can overcome them by never giving up, always trying their best, and surrounding themselves with families and friends. Two stories that I have read that show adversity are “A Work in Progress” by Aimee Mullins which is about a little girl losing her leg. The other story I read is “So Far From the Bamboo Grove” by Yoko Kawashima Watkins about a little girl that has to leave her home because of war and has very big obstacles to overcome. Aimee Mullins and the Kawashimas both face obstacles that include losing family members, walking very far in intense weather, and people doubting you and trying to stop you. In the end they all make it through the the challenges mentally and physically.

Michael Metzdorf Dr.Tomko WRT-101-039 3/4/16 Comparing and Contrasting Two Articles Both articles, “Are Too Many People Going to College?” and “Blue-Collar Brilliance,” differ in many ways from each of the author’s own experiences. The first article “Are Too Many People Going to College” argues a bachelor’s degree is a necessity and your ticket into the working world. If a person doesn’t get a 4-year-college degree society will judge him or her as being not as smart or less than someone who possesses a bachelor’s degree. However, “Blue-Collar Brilliance” argues that while it’s still important to get a bachelor’s degree, there are still some good high paying jobs that don’t require any college education at all.
