It also reveals that dreams can become reality if the effort is applied. Carrie Underwood is my favorite celebrity by far because she is an amazing person to look up to. She is constantly placing others before herself and keeping God number one in her personal life. Her life story is an enormous motivation for girls everywhere. There is not another single human being that I would rather be for a single
Willa Cather writes, "…Tiny Soderball was to lead the most adventurous life and achieve the most solid worldly success" (142). This quote once again expresses the theme of human spirit triumphs over adversity because Tiny was only a young hired girl at first who just wanted to help provide for her family, but later grew successfully despite the poor

These statements reflect the many values in the classic “American Dream”, which have been accredited to the success stories of many Americans, going from rags to riches, climbing to the top starting from the bottom. In “La Gringuita”, on the other hand, Julia Alvarez, when talking about her friend Dilita, also a Dominican American, played with the idea of having the best of both worlds as a multilingual - multicultural person – “we can have a good time here, and have a good time there.” She admitted to enjoy being a “hybrid” herself. Indeed, anyone who can speak multiple languages has an undeniable advantage in a melting-pot society like America. The idea of being able to dabble in everything and having doors open is tempting to many immigrants; thus, it has driven as well
Oprah became quite popular at her new school and was invited to many of her classmates homes (Westen 27). Oprah would often make up lies about her family life so she would fit in with all of her rich classmates. Out of the two thousand students at Oprah’s highschool she was the only one who was African American (Westen 28). Despite Oprah’s differences she still thrived and was quite popular. Oprah once stated, “Excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism” (“Oprah

Because of her skill and determination, she was able to reestablish the Protestant religion and defeat the Spanish Armada. Queen Elizabeth I was as tough as any man, and she proved to be when she ruled without the help of a husband. Elizabeth’s accomplishments before and during her reign are what make her a remarkable queen who will remembered for years to
Each ruler made great contributions and passed power from one generation to the next. Cleopatra’s family was not any different, she did what she had to do to restore the country she loved. Although she was not fit to be the ruler of Egypt, Cleopatra did restore Egypt to former glory because of her determination, strong alliances, and hunger to keep her family’s dynasty alive. Because of her passion and undeniable love for her country and people, Cleopatra was the best leader of the Ptolemaic
I have watched a lot of inspiring movies and I would say that Temple Grandin is the most striking. This movie revolves around a woman named, Temple Grandin, who became successful despite having limitations due to her autism. She graduated as college valedictorian and she also completed her Ph.D. Furthermore, the movie also shows the importance of moral support and understanding to the persons with autism for their consolation and feeling of relief. I commend the movie for effectively showing how a person with autism or disability like Temple Grandin could overcome her limitations and eventually become successful.
How does one limit their reasoning of how Oprah Winfrey has changed their lives. I would like to start with the fact of how she has shown me that women can be just as powerful as men. In this world today it can be hard to remember that, but Winfrey will never let you forget it. From starting her own charity to help girls get a better education in a place where they were told they couldn’t be taught and are treated like objects. She has continue to strive for a better place for every human, no matter race, gender, sexuality or past life.
I always sought out to be the best example of an empowered woman, especially in this time in our country where the American woman is still not held in the same respect as the American man. I firmly believe in girl power and supporting your fellow women, it is one of the most important duties in my life when I see sexism still being a part of today’s society to try and defend the gender equality movement to the extent of my ability. Strawderman showed me to support other women, bringing out the best in a friend is one of the best feelings of accomplishment in life. At Sweet Briar, the time i’ve spent on campus has given me major flashbacks and visions of my Strawderman life. The rural Virginia campus, tender horses, and amazing faculty and students all make me feel so welcome into this incredibly nurturing environment I have not seen at any other college.
As the reader you can really see the strength she gained as a child and it inspires. The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
Sydney Tyler English 1302, Summer II Dr. Pamela Howell July 20, 2016 Assignment 3 Assignment Three 3. How does Lamott use her innate sensitivity to her advantage as an adult?

Even though she was born a poor African American, she worked her way up in life and kept on making a difference in the world even once she was ill. Unlike many other minorities who often focus on feeling bad for themselves and angry at those who have more, Barbara Jordan took one step at a time and put one foot in front of another. I admire how even when she did not win an election she did not give up and tried again and again until she succeeded. She won many awards for her accomplishments. Jordan said “Education remains the key to both economic and political empowerment.” This shows that she felt that education is so important and by trying hard in school, people can take the first step towards fulfilling their dreams.
