Sharon effectively manages her time, is an exceptional group member in team
Hello, my name is Miranda Gidlof, and I am 38 years old. I am a mom to five great kids, ranging from 4 years old to 21 years old. I have worked in both child care and in home health. I love caring for people and helping them. I made a choice to return to school after 20 years because I wanted to open up myself to more job options.
My grandfather opened a car radiator shop here and my grandma now owns it, as he has passed away. When I asked her about her view of the American dream in the 60s she answered that she saw it as being healthy, having your family, and being successful/ doing well. She continues this view on the american dream through trying to host family dinners whenever possible, and flying out to Minnesota every so often to see her remaining family up north. She stays healthy both through playing softball and keeping up with her immune
The African American culture takes pride in cooking and food in general. Food is mostly provided or prepared for any occasion like family reunions, cook outs, holidays, and funerals. My mother and her cousin, Sherrie would decide who house to celebrate holidays or cook outs and each person would cook and prepare the food for any of our family gathers. My mother also prepared traditional southern meals in our home. Home cooked meals are a value in the family as well as the African American culture.
On my third Christmas, I helped my grandmother bake gingerbread houses. Together, we filled every surface in her kitchen and dining room with sweet smelling, sugarcoated creations fit for the cover of Cook’s Illustrated. After spending the entire day baking and assembling the intricate structures, we went out for dinner. When we got back to her home, my grandmother’s eyes opened wide as she beamed with delight. “Who made all of this beautiful gingerbread?” she asked.

I have had the honor of dedicating much of my time and devotion to the many volunteer opportunities in a variety of venues. Working for the local soup kitchen as a cook and server for 3 years, can definitely humble a person. Setting up and assisting in the churches, Festivals and fundraisers as well as their school nursery program. Working in the capacity of repairing and cleaning forest trails in Central New York State Parks and Warren Island, Maine. Of course, my time spent being a Boy Scout for several years, only just touched on the experience I would later bear.
I want to help someone change their life around in hopes that they do better in their community. Other than going to school full time I work part time at a grocery store and I 'm the mother to a awesome four year old boy. I have lived in Virginia Beach my whole life and even though we seem to have bi-polar weather I love it here. I hope that when I 'm older though I can move to the country side of Virginia where its more quiet. I recently took a cooking class and it was so much fun, I love learning how to cook new recipes.
Our mother always prepares dinner for us in her traditional dress and cooks dishes native to Botswana. This way, the three of us bring a little bit of Botswana flavour to our new home in Toronto. My sister and I also keep the ‘Botho Spirit’. Back in Botswana people communicate and interact with each other a lot more than here; even if someone is having a bad day, they will still smile and say hello to people on the street. Interacting with others, being polite, and being positive is what the ‘Botho Spirit’ is all about and it is essential in the Botswanian society.
However, it was my grandmother’s house that solidified my strong sentiment towards Acton. Nearly every holiday of my childhood was spent there, allowing the family to stay in touch year-round. Among those holidays was the Acton Fall Fair, which to us nearly rivalled thanksgiving. Every year we gathered at my grandmother’s for her homemade chilli, watched the parade and attended the fair. Living in Acton would mean reconnecting with my past.
