Since my brother has left for college at UT Chattanooga, me and my mom have gotten closer in that way as well. My mom has to play the mother and father role for both me and my brother and I am very grateful that she is so good at it, and does everything she can to be the best for me. She has taught me to not take things for granted, and to keep looking forward and not backwards. She has taught me how to manage every issue that could possibly come my way. “My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.” Mark Twain said this, which made me laugh and smile because I know my mom has had some troubles with me, but she always fights for me and does everything she can to teach me all the right things.
Although, I’ve performed well enough to succeed at many group projects. However, like the Natives, sometimes when they feel like the world was against them, their family are suppose to be the foundation, but the parents have issues and sometimes don’t provide the needed support. Above all, their secret is to never giving up and I feel the same as I have continued to strive at Belmont to complete my AET degree. They have also learned how to accept themselves and know they will change. I’ve also learned to love my family as I am away from home and genuinely listen to them as I see the Lakotas doing the same because they always listen to their elders or grandparents.
I was always told by my parents to live life, and enjoy every moment I got. Like every other kid, I am a reflection of my parents values. Through various means, my parents taught me to be mature, optimistic, and cooperative. As an older sister, I was granted many responsibilities from a young age. I was given a lot of chores when I was younger, mainly because my mom had to take care of my brother.
I began to think about the impact my decisions had on the people in my life and realized that I could learn a few lessons from Jeanette. Jeanette puts her siblings first, knowing how they felt about their parents and does her best to provide for them while she is living at home. She also works hard and never gives up on her dreams. Finally, maybe the most important lesson from Jeanette is about family. Despite all the things Jeanette’s parents put her through she finds it in her heart to forgive and welcome them back into her
Did you know that depending on the sport, students who play sports in college most likely have less than a 2% chance of becoming professional athletes? At middle schools, high schools and colleges across the country, everyone is arguing over whether or not students with failing grades should be allowed to play sports. In my opinion, a good education is so very important for our country’s youth, especially the athletes. Not a lot of kids are good enough to play in the top college sports programs in the country. But even those who are, still have an astonishingly low chance at making the professional leagues.
Malala thanks her father for letting her be herself and do what she believes in and letting her be an independent person who longs for the education she will continue to thank him for all that he has sacrificed for her throughout her life the father is on her side no matter what choices she decides. Malala credits a lot of people for their impact they made on her and the many challenges she went
I too had already given up on the idea that I was going to college. The discovering age as Gonzales describes it completely disoriented me; I was no longer feeling the same aspirations because everything I had set my goals on was being questioned because of all my limitations. I’m currently 23 turning 24 soon and I feel that I’m already at the coping age. I see all the effort I have put into school, but is it really going to pay off or will my options continue to be limited. After experiencing this my perspective towards my family didn’t change drastically, but before there was no sense of pride, which could be because I was younger and didn’t understand.
At the age of 21, I know that I want to be a social worker because I am so compassionate about people. I just want to help in any way that I can. I don’t want young girls like myself to have to see what I saw and I want to help show people that we aren’t the cause, nor can we cure or control it. I am so incredibly thankful for the life I was given, because I feel that it turned me into a great person. My dad taught me so much in life, more than he will ever know and I think that is the purpose of a parent, to teach you valuable life lessons.
They helped us with somewhere to live and they were very supportive with continuing my high school education. Living with parents and raising a baby was not easy. Teenagers, in general think they know it all, but being a teen mom, made it more complicated. There were plenty of disagreements about what was the right or wrong thing for Cynthia’s wellbeing. However, we were all on the same team and they usually found some type of middle ground for us to agree upon.
Give back to them for all of their hard toil. Being a child of immigrant parents makes you appreciate life so much because everyday it’s an opportunity to be the best you can be to make everyone around you proud. My parents can’t got back to school and get an education so being able to see me succeed is worth their hard work. My parents have taught me to never give up. I know that some doors may be closed on me but that doesn’t mean other doors won’t open.
The legacy I will leave for my children will be the values I teach them throughout their childhoods: compassion, hard work, and confidence. I whole-heartedly believe in treating others the way I want to be treated. That particular phrasing may sound cliche to some, but I believe it perfectly illustrates why being nice to others is so vital. When I was in grade school, and someone would make fun of me, I was offended by their insult, but I always
Wes Moore. The guy that had a lot of obstacles through his life that got him where he is today, but he didn’t do it alone. Just like anyone you need to have a positive influence on your life. It could be anyone teacher, boss, parent, friend. Anyone that drives you to want to succeed and for Wes that was his mother, Joy.
I could place all the blame on the mistakes I made freshman year but that would not help change that I fell short of my goal twice. Instead I had to accept that my hard work was not hard enough and my endeavors were not my earnest. If I had the knowledge and skills that I have now back when I was a freshman, I would have had a higher chance at being a part of National Honor Society.The reality is that I cannot change what I did or did not do three years ago. Although the experience I have now would have helped me then, I must use my knowledge to help me now and not make the same
My family has always been the center of my universe. They’ve taught me the importance of being united and taking care of one another—because in the end, all we truly have is each other. My parents have raised me to be a good daughter, sister, and citizen. They’ve shaped me to be respectful, responsible, and virtuous, knowing these values will last a lifetime. But above all, my parents have instilled in me an appreciation and eagerness for education.
Its just one of my goals to give back to them especially my mom because of all the things she went through and wants me to be a better man when I’m older. Overall I praise my mom because she has to put up with me even though we have some bad agreements at times but at the end of the day I love her no matter what because she is doing all this for my sister and I. She is an amazing woman and I am thankful to have her as a mom because of all the things she has done for me and I hope later on when I get my degree I would make her proud. I also praise her for all the things she has overcome like the war that went on in here country, making it to the US so we could have a better life, and for being an amazing mother that I love no matter
