Going through probation has been an extremely crazy experience. While being on probation it was a big opportunity to turn my life around. Through that journey it showed me that my friends are not really my friends, I did things I never thought I’d do in life, and ended up back into the system; it also made me the person I am today. That one life experience has made a big rotation in my life that I am very proud of and I wouldn’t change anything about it, not one bit.
But these are obviously not the only people who have helped me. I deliberately left my parents and other family members out of the essay. Partially, this is because I believe it’s so obvious that they shaped my life. The other part is that I wanted to challenge myself to think of other people who might not normally get recognized as important people in my life.
Personal Narrative Seed Folks The thought of being 16 and pregnancy has always weight down on me growing up. I was scare of my family history trying my best not to repeat the life of my mother. In 2001 I was so happy I made it. I accomplish what no one in my family was able to accomplish.
Suggestions are offered to alleviate their struggles. As Karl Marx famously said “[People] make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past."

When you think of “not so good events” little things come to mind like your dog dying, losing a friends because of drama, or getting grounded. These things are nothing compared to the things that happen to Molly in the
Middle school is a time where kids start to develop their own identity, build new friendships, and transition into being a young adults. Personally, middle school was a rough time; I lacked confidence in I was, and the fear that I wasn't good enough controlled my life. In seventh grade one of the girls I was friends with made the comment that I was too fat to be her friend, and I didn't deserve to be included in our friend group. As a result of being too afraid of finding new friends, who would accepted me for who I was as a person rather than what I looked like, I tried to gain the approval of the ones I already had.
She struggled with having to battle with staying true to herself and her beliefs and with all that was going on things became hard for her. Satrapi also displayed a strong belief in God and a strong longing to be a Prophet at a young age and because of the Revolution her faith begins to dwindle down to much of nothing as she gets older. For example, in the book she literally tells God to get out of her life. “Shut up you! [God] Get out of my life!!!

From the start, I did not feel like I “fit in”. I did not want to be around anyone. As my depression grew, my grades faltered, and I had very little interest in anything. After a series of academic failures and a period of loneliness throughout the remainder of my time in middle school, I finally told myself that this was my life and I had to take charge of it and start looking for the best things in my day to day activities. I began to think about my future and how my choices were going to shape my life as an adult.
These were just extra obstacles that were put in my way for reason to benefit at all, considering I was told that junior year was already the hardest year for any high schooler anyway. I was furious yet frightened to see the thing that I value and work for, to be turned against me and everyone else. Across many schools within Jeffco, students all together performed a walk out during school to protest this issue to point. But this walk out was only the beginning of the Jeffco Recall that many teachers, parents, and students supported and carried out throughout the year. And while we did have to compensate for their poor decisionmaking that year, the recall was eventually set forth and finalized at the beginning of my senior year.
Writer Jonathan Swift once said, “Power is no blessing in itself, except when it is used to protect the innocent.” The ability to help those are who are in need, whether it 's direct or indirect, is one of my primary passion.

As social workers, our purpose is to promote the human well-being, and to advocate for people’s rights in society. Social work is a profession that gives individuals the opportunity to support and help those in need. Social workers help those who are vulnerable, oppressed by society, and victims of poverty or discrimination. Micro and macro-level theories are two different ways to help individuals, and they differ in their strategies and the type of population. In one hand, micro level covers people’s needs individually by applying therapy that help one person in specific.
Why? I am interested in becoming a master-level social worker because I believe it is the next step for me. I hope to work with the early childhood population and their families. I have spent all of my professional career with this population and feel this is where I best stand. But I am ready to move from a teaching aspect into a more influential place where I am able to have a bigger impact on the children who need it most.
