A role model is a person whose behavior, example, or success is or can be emulated by others, especially by younger people. A role model to me is Peyton manning. Role models should have good leadership qualities, should be confident, and be able to admit their own mistakes.
72 days in the Andes no food, nothing. I read the book Miracle in the Andes, written by , Nando Parrado. Nando Parrado plays for a rugby team and he and his team go on a trip to play a game.

Positive role models are so important in our society, someone who they can look up to and be a positive impact on their lives. So many times, in our society, so many adolescences marvels at role models that have no talent like the Kardashian or these reality TV stars. I like the positive role models for adolescence that encourage them to make smart choices in their lives and builds them up overall. One positive role model for adolescence would have to be the rapper J Cole, there are a lot of rappers that talk about negative things in their music like violence and having the most money. The rapper J Cole sings about being positive and loving yourself, he is a lot different then other rappers in our society, the reason I picked him is because
I don’t recall having a hard time learning how to read. It was one of those things that just came easily to me for some reason. For the most part I enjoyed reading as well. The only time I didn’t enjoy reading was when I didn’t understand a certain word or a certain phrase. One of the strongest memories I have from learning to read was when I was unable to pronounce the word “the”.

Pierre Peladeau is a French Canadian man who built a multi-billion dollars media company with $1500 loan from his mother . During his existence on earth, he has accomplished a lot of things such as giving millions to charities and visiting the sick in hospitals. Despite all the good things that Pierre Peladeau has done, I believe the bad actions that he made conquers and overcomes his good deeds. For instance, Pierre Peladeau was engaged in various disputes such as Anti-Semitic comments against the Jewish community, sexist statements towards business women, being a womanizer and an alcoholic. In my opinion Pierre Peladeau is not a good role model for business students.
Many people have a person that they look up to and who encourages them. It 's someone who I think doesn 't give up and gets back up when they fall down, who has an impact to other people around them and they work for what they have earned. A person that is a role model to me is a man named Kobe Bryant. He is a basketball player that accomplished many things in his career. He was also born on August 23, 1978 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (Biography Today 44). He is someone who over time has shown persistence and courage throughout his career in basketball. Kobe Bryant was a role model and inspiring basketball player that had a great legacy in the NBA.
Have you ever heard about role models? If you have, then you would know that each one has to undertake some sort of mission to become what many people call a “role model.” The first role model’s name is Ernesto. The second person 's name is Farah Ahmedi. Finally, the third person is not a person. It is a dog named Buck. Now let 's talk about these three role models and how they always accomplished their missions.
It was the last inning in our all-star game, and we were losing 10 to 8. Our team had 2 outs and we couldn’t get the third. Our pitcher was doing bad, throwing all balls, while all of us in the field were tired, ready to fall asleep at any moment. There goes another walk. They score again. Great! I was thinking. At this point in the game I thought for sure that I would die right there in center field. However, baseball is baseball and things can change rather rapidly.
As American lights illuminate the stunning skyline of opportunity, we, as Americans, don't always bask in the glory of this powerful glow. Within the nonfiction novel Enrique's Journey by Sonia Nazario, a teenage boy, Enrique, sums up the courage of a thousand men to travel through treacherous trials to find his mother in America. Showing more bravery than I ever will muster in my entire lifetime, Enrique has made a deep impression upon me about perseverance; however, with his determination to reach his mother, I was surprised with how many times he was forced to begin his perilous journey again. In modern day American society, we witness hardship and a struggle to start again on the movie screens, but we are comforted by the distance that is
The importance of family is considered one of the top priorities to most people this is the case of Enrique and his family. There are many themes in Enrique’s Journey written by Sonia Nazario about a young boys path to his mother but the most prominent theme is family is the most important thing. This is evident when Enrique crosses numerous borders daring death just to see his mother and, when Enrique’s mom leaves for America to give her kids a better life even though she will miss them everyday, and when Enrique forgives his mom for leaving so they can have a good relationship.
Enrique journey, which lead to dangerous situations. When Enrique gets stopped by a gang, he cowers in fear. Nazario writes, “Mara Salvatrucha street gangsters always prowl the train tops in Chiapas.” Just to get to the border, Enrique has to get on the train, which is surrounded by gang activity. Since there are gang members, then Enrique could get robbed or killed. Additionally Enriques makes a friend who’s also had the same story but his didn’t end so well. Nazario writes, “he slides up a leg of his black jeans and takes off a high topped black sneaker, then a prosthesis” (130). This illustrates us how the Journey that some teenagers also like Enrique took didn’t end so well. Through Enrique, Narazio emphasizes how Enrique all though he was placed through all these obstacles he was still determined to continue his journey.
I would like to reflect upon how I manage my work priorities and professional development. In doing so I would go on to explain how I serve as a positive role model in the workplace through personal work planning and organisation, how I ensure personal work goals, plans and activities reflect the organisation’s plans, and own responsibilities and accountabilities. Then I will explain how I measure and maintain personal performance in varying work conditions, work contexts and contingencies, take initiative to prioritize and facilitate competing demands to achieve personal, team and organizational goals and objectives, use technology efficiently and effectively to manage work priorities and commitments, maintain appropriate work/ life balance, and ensure stress is effectively managed and health is attended to. Subsequently, I will discussion on how I assess personal knowledge and skills against competency standards to determine development needs, priorities and plans, seek feedback from employees, clients and colleagues and use this feedback to identify and develop ways to improve competence, identify, evaluate, select and use development opportunities suitable to personal learning style/s to develop competence. Finally, I will look into how I undertake participation in networks to enhance personal knowledge, skills and work relationships, identify and develop new skills to achieve and maintain a competitive edge.
