So I should be aiming for the upper region of this occupation. It will still be a major thing to become in my family no matter what the pay is. I will still enjoy my work and come to school and work with my greatest attitude towards my studies and my work. I will still have fun and learn and become a better person. Being an PTA is a great occupation, but I do not plan on spending the rest of my life in that position title.
I have grown to understand that my values are a result of my experiences and people in my life and therefore aim to surround myself with people that will influence me positively. My family have always taught me to stay strong in what I believe in and encourage me to be open and honest. They have impacted the way I respond to my experiences as I always receive advice and support from them. I feel a basic responsibility to honour and respect the people in my life. In life I will come into contact with different people all the time, they will have varying beliefs, interests and outlooks.
Cultural Self-Assessment As a human services major, I have learned to explore more about myself. I have learned about my values, and my belief system; in addition, I have become aware of my biases, flaws, and my internalized stereotypes and prejudices. As I go along with each one of my human services classes, I begin to learn more about myself. However, there is one thing that has not changed since before I got into this major, and that is, that there is always hope for people.
Without perseverance my team would be weak, unable to achieve our goals because we are incapable to push through the rough times. But to always persevere there needs to be some effort put into everyday tasks to help build upon the need and want to
Taking the time to write out people, places, things, and memories I couldn’t live without along with goals I have for my life, showed me what is truly important. I think it is common for people to never take the time to write down what is actually driving them to accomplish things in life. By writing these things down I was shown what I really value and what is not as
Reading literature can help scholars understand other cultures because it immerses the reader in what those other cultures believed in and what their priorities were. It can help a reader get to know the culture and obtain facts about their lifestyle, habits, and how they function day to day. It is a very important thing to learn about other cultures because it educates us about the world today and how the world today functions and how all the cultures come together and make this world what it
After reading Maya Angelou’s quote, I realized there are still many things I have to learn about life. This quote made me think about how many things go unappreciated everyday, and how we should be thankful for these things. It also inspires me to work harder so that I can reach my goals in life. I need to learn this so that I can become a more appreciative and thankful person towards my family and friends.
I will always push myself to seek an opening to better myself despite all odds and negativity to be the best me I could ever be even if I mess up along the way I know it’s only more lessons to be learned. You should never stop learning and improve yourself because even if you don’t try just know you will always learn something new every day, education is endless. I will forever remain hopeful and humble because of what I personally have been through and have witnessed growing up. I have now learned I am not average I am me and there is nothing else I would rather
I was not always the perfect student and procrastinated as much as possible, but I have found it in me to pull myself together and change my ways. Using Frodo as a hero in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, was the best choice because it allowed the viewers to see that no matter your size, shape or personality, you too can be a hero and save the day. Everyone needs saving and regrettably mythical beings do not exist in our world, having humans act as heroes is the greatest gift anyone
As the loss of language always corresponds with changes of local culture, language acts as a powerful symbol that represents Okinawa and it’s cultural historical backgrounds. Despite the minorities that use the Okinawan Language, we cannot guarantee these languages will be spoken forever because the reality is that Language can vanish within its present speakers. Without local awareness and efforts made by the citizens of the Ryukyu Islands, there is no one else who can choose to spread the languages to a wider population. Yet not everyone supports the effort to save these languages. Some may criticize that there is no such thing as an “Okinawan Identity” because of the mixture of diverse cultures.
The Traditions, Silence, and Life Within Everyone has new things to listen and learn from on a daily basis. Silence is important in both, but to ask questions is more important. To be thankful for the life we live is greater. In Richard Wagamese’s novel, Keeper ‘N Me, it teaches about the importance of learning, listening, silence, and every life within the land of the Ojibwe people.
I also understand the importance of being accepting to different cultures especially within this role. The article has stressed upon the importance and clarified to me culture deals with a lot more then just traditions as it sums up our basis of self-identity, and incorporates itself within the way we preform, speak, and interact with those around us. In recognition to this, not always do we agree of those of another culture but we must never ostracize them. In other words, “service learners learn about problem-solving in social situations and appreciating cultural difference” (Kronick, Cunningham & Gourley,
All of which we hope that other cultures will respect. On that note, we must understand that we want respect, so we need to respect other cultures. Each culture is unique but no one culture is superior, we must learn to work side by side in order to reach our full potential. There is a great deal we can learn from other cultures, however we are unable to do so if we remain close minded. Our way is one way, but it is not the only way, and it important to be understanding of that.
The ongoing process of striking a balance between one’s work and demands of life, including marital status have become a challenge for most professionals. So, in the spirit of being part of the solution, I took some time to compile some of the fundamental lessons I’ve learned to date as well as the best of the advice I’ve gotten from experts. These lessons are not rules or absolutes they’re a snapshot of what’s worked for me so far and food for thought. However, the two op-ed pieces by David Brooks and the Young Money chapters caution us to the value in maintaining a work and life balance.
What we carry does not define you as a person what defines you as a person is how you carry yourself. Just because you have to carry all this weight does not mean you have to be another burden to yourself. Life will only continue to add more and more for you to carry and it is up to you to choose to carry them in a way that proves to yourself that you are worth it. I will always carry the weight of hate in my life that on some days will be my demise, but if I can see the true beauty in myself and realize there is nothing to hate about myself I will start to carry self worth, and let me tell you self worth is much lighter on my back
