Today David Ortiz is known as “Big Papi” because he is big in his career. For me someone who had lived and achieved the American Dream is my paternal aunt, Danilda Adams, who from when she was little she was a hard worker. When she came here she was 27, her dream was to always be someone, and to own her own things, so she could see herself as an independent and successful woman. Knowing all of experience and dreams, she always tells me to move forward, and seeing her achieving her dreams, encourage me to not stop, but to keep fighting for my dreams. My American Dream is to become more successful everyday, to obtain a bachelor’s degree in business
My writing of these incidents in this location, time, language, and manner, are solely credited to my family’s life-changing decision to travel to the unfamiliar land of America. This unforgettable experience signifies the detachment from my closest and most loved family, which I yearn to be with to this day. However, I can only remind myself that, perhaps, I am a better individual as a result of my journey across the globe, and that everything which occurs in life occurs for a
I was speechless with great happiness, and I jumped for joy; at the age of nine I was amazed to know that my dream had come into existence. So yes, God does work in mysterious ways, that no one can explain. The next day came, and I had to travel to the capital state of my country to obtain my passport and documents which I would need to travel. Weeks and days went by and my excitement lessened as I began to realize how much I would miss home, members of my family, most especially my lovely grandma because of the bond we shared. I knew I would miss them deeply, so I began to cherish the days I had left to spend with them before my trip.
“If you don't get the basics down tonight, you’ll have to do this tomorrow also.” My mom went to America because of the American dream and more opportunity She arrived in America at Oregon during 1991 after leaving Vietnam. After losing her brother and all of her family’s belongings, she had to start all over in America but it was only going to get better from there, because she was
The USA was the dream place for me, and the land of opportunity not only because it was a beautiful place but also I was thinking of starting my career in this competitive country. I had dreamed of the US since I was young, those big city-center towers, people walking in the big streets and in the streets filled with cars. Now, after almost one and a half years living in America, I still remember the day I left my country. It was very difficult to leave my family, even though I said goodbye to all the best friends. Finding new friends was not easy for me, because people here are not friendly, but in my culture we usually do not make new friends with ease.
Coach Anderson made sure Jackson got his regular practice. As time flew by,Jackson was winning games, but at the same time, his mother’s time also flew by. During his mother’s last breath, she told Jackson to “help people like me”. She also told him to “not follow my footsteps”. After Jackson 's grief, he
But the more I learned about it, what it can do for women, it’s benefits, I came to really appreciate it. b. The more I thought about it, about how it could’ve changed the postpartum period of some of my closest family members. How incredibly INSANE I felt after my son was born and how placenta encapsulation could’ve helped me, I decided this was a service I wanted to be able to provide my clients as a way to continue our relationship and be able to serve them in their postpartum period as well. 2.
The Unfairness of Athletics Over the past one-hundred years, sports have become one of America’s most beloved past times. Sports have also become a great opportunity for young athletes to create friendships, while learning valuable life lessons. However, in the last decade, the attention of sports has been directed away from developing children and young adults into superior athletes and helping them achieve personal goals, to assuring that no athlete feels left out when trophy day arrives. Perhaps the most controversial issue in the world of sports today is the debate over whether or not participation trophies should be given to athletes for merely coming to practice and playing games. The argument is what many people would refer to as a two-way street.
One of the biggest Hispanics I look up to as inspiration and encouragement is Sonya Sotomayor, the Supreme Court justice. She proved to me that not only can Hispanics can succeed but that they can also excel in politics. As a child my grandfather always told me to work hard because if you don’t you will end up staying in the same place you are hoping for something better instead of achieving it. What he told me that day will continue to inspire me for the rest of my life and work hard even if you’re put down for being Hispanic or just undervalued because of the color of my skin. If I let that bother me and stop me, then I am not working hard enough to achieve what I have set out to do in life which is to show people that Hispanics can do anything just as good as anyone else and that just because we came from places of lower income doesn’t mean we don’t have what it takes to succeed where some have
How have you been? Welcome to this wonderful world! I have wasted my whole day to think the hook just because I want to catch your attention. I know your life may not be easy in this country, what hardships you are going through now, all I was experiencing throughout my life. I would like to tell you America is a beautiful, democratic and educated country, that’s why I moved here before you born.
I think that this activity gave me the extra push I needed because over Thanksgiving break I spoke up to one of my family members for the first time ever when they said something negative about Black people. I know that I still have an incredible amount of progress to make, and that it is something that I should have been doing all along, but I am still glad that I finally made a step in the right direction. In addition to continuing to speak up against people who are participating in racism in my presence I also need to continue to be aware of current events in the future. Every once in a while we would have a discussion in class about what’s been going on in the media, and almost half of the time I was not aware of what was going on until somebody brought it up in class. I cannot expect to be a good ally if I do not stay educated about what is going on in our country and around the world with respect to minorities.
