By participating in Emporia’s Honors College I hope to further enrich my education by challenging myself and my abilities. I want to open myself up to the new opportunities the honors college will be able to provide to me like the leadership trainings. The honors college will better prepare me for my desired future as an elementary school teacher by making me a better leader and more open to new and harder experiences still yet to come. I am a hardworking and dedicated student who is determined to make the most and get the most out of my college experience. This program will push me to work even harder in all of my classes because more will be expected out of me. As part of this program I would be able to get more involved in my new community
Andrew Carnegie discusses three different forms of distributing riches. Carnegie used ethos and pathos as well as vocabulary in order to strengthen his argument. The three methods are inheritance, distributing after death and distributing during a lifetime. Inheritance refers to the wealthy person leaving behind their riches to their children. Carnegie argues that this method often leads to failure. He says that it is too much pressure for the children. Having to manage a large estate without life experience or knowledge of maintaining a business. Carnegie also believes that leaving behind so much wealth sets up the descendants for failure. Since the offspring are not learning how to making a living with their own bear hands kids they will often end up in poverty. Most of these inheritors end up living off the wealth and not using it to better humanity, the wealth stagnates. Carnegie goes to say that it is rare for rich children to not be spoiled and to work for the greater good of the general public. Although there are exceptions Carnegie believes that this is the worst way to distribute wealth.
During the late nineteenth century, a form of Social Darwinism emerged called the Gospel of Wealth also known as the Success Gospel. Social Darwinism is “Herbert Spencer’s adaptation of Charles Darwin’s concepts of natural selection and “survival of the fittest” as it applies to human society” (Nash p. 417). Social Darwinists believed that the social order was the product of the natural selection of the individuals that were best suited for the existing living conditions. These individuals were white, Anglo-Saxon, wealthy men. This theory, Social Darwinism, was applied to the monopolistic efforts of businessmen as John D. Rockefeller, Jr. so eloquently stated: “The growth of a large business is merely the survival of the fittest” (Nash p. 417). The Gospel of Wealth based on Social Darwinism is the notion that the massive wealth held by prosperous businessmen was for the social benefit of everyone. The advocates of the Gospel of Wealth such as Andrew Carnegie, Russell Conwell, and Horatio Alger linked wealth with a sense of heightened responsibility as those with more wealth had an equally great obligation to society.
Every little girl plays with her mothers makeup. I used to watch my mother and sisters do their makeup every morning, and I would sit in front of a mirror and try to imitate their actions. As soon as I could walk, I was getting into their makeup. This continued for years until I bought my own materials to gain more experience and expand my creativity. I would use my imagination that makeup brought, and I would test different designs on my friends and family. It intrigued me that there was self expression in its own art form, and that I too could obtain these abilities one day. Even more so, I could make a career from my interests. I could share the skills that I learned from years experience, and I could enhance my client´s features. I believe
"Rules are the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men" (Harry Day). Although boundaries and guidelines are important for the success of a society, it is also invaluable to know the gift of freedom. If one is foolishly obedient and follows only the orders they are given, there is no growth for their future. People will start to become robots and will never learn some of life's most crucial lessons. In the book The Giver, by Lois Lowry, there are three main themes; conformity, tradition, and compliancy.

As a college bound New York student, the Excelsior Scholarship would play an incredible impact in my life. This is a great New York free tuition program that was introduced by Governor Andrew Cuomo. Students who are already living in New York who will be able to attend college full time will be able to benefit from this generosity. However, although this is a wonderful opportunity students who desperately need it may not be able to participate in it. Let’s consider students who work part time or full time, or for various other reasons can only do part time studies what will they do? All the restrictions that Excelsior Scholarship comes with, it creates too much challenge for several students to benefit from
The most powerful element in society is wealth, it has the power to corrupt the human mind and body. Andrew Carnegie the president of a $480 billion steel company believed it is “the duty of the man of wealth” to control all the money that comes to him, and “becoming the mere agent and trustee for his poorer brethren… Doing for them better they would or could do for themselves” (Doc C). Clearly the immense amount of wealth he possessed has corrupted his mind to make such hostile judgment upon the poor. The mere dream of a laborer is to become successful in their jobs in order to earn the sufficient amount of money to buy a decent home, and raise a healthy family. It is the man of wealth that cannot handle the money correctly. This is proven

“80 percent of millionaires were not born wealthy-they built their fortune through their own hard work.” A quote from The Millionaire Next Door, by T.J. Stanley and W.D Danko. We all dream of being successful. In fact I do every second of the day ,sitting in all my classes. I also think to myself that I hope I get a job in the future that makes me the happiest. And a job that pays me well so I can get thousands of nike shoes. Sadly, getting a job where I get paid doing what I want is not easy. Thus, education and career choice has a relationship with meeting my financial goals and having my desired lifestyle.
The most surprising thing to me about entrepreneurship in this book is the assertion by Randy that the business is like creative work like printing, and not necessarily a financial institution. Many people think that the importance
