Dominican Republic is a tropical, maritime nation. Conditions are improved-quality in much area by upgrading and by the northeast trade winds which steadily blow from the Atlantic.

At the age of____, I left everything behind in Armenia and migrated into the United States of America to start a new life. Even though I love my paternal land and do not forget where I come from, the fact that I could pursue a career and become a productive member of the society encouraged me to move to America. To my great misfortune, I was persecuted for being politically active in my own country and I could no longer fight with the authorities for violating my civil rights. I had the potential of facing more dangerous situations than I was already in at the time. I am my parent’s first child and they instilled their best efforts into providing the best education for me. They did not receive higher education and I was the first in my family.
It is an honor to be nominated for the National Honor Society. The fact that I was nominated proves to me that all of my hard work and dedication has not been for nothing. The National Honor Society is known for recognizing students who strive to achieve their best not only in school but in themselves and the community. I believe that I’m one of those students.
Many immigrants came to this land of prosperity and the land of freedom to give their kids a better life and education. “ I brought you to this country now, do something with it.” (from the article The American Dream Lives On by Yasmina Shaush). I understood this quote because my parents also brought my siblings and myself to get a better education and I plan to do so, to make them proud.
My mother and father have always wanted the best for me, like all good parents do. One of the many things that they expect from me is to receive a college education, something that they never had the chance to do. My parents always advise me to not to make the same mistakes as they did, to go to college so I can get a good job and not have to struggle in my life.
Similar to other immigrants my family history is somewhat compelling. Starting with my grandfather who was exiled out of Egypt in 1959 primarily as a result of the "decolonization process and the rise of Egyptian nationalism”, my immediate family and I also left France in 2004 as a result of rising tension against Jews. The migration of my grandparents and parents, from a young age, cultivated a sense of determination in me to overcome obstacles. Arriving in Miami at age 5, I had to learned my third language, English, in order to attend school. I was determined to and successfully lost my accent and got tested into the gifted program after a year of school. This determination has continued through high school where I was accepted into the Scholars Academy.
I am a first-generation Hispanic-American. Being born and spending my childhood in south Florida made my Hispanic culture so accessible that I would think in Spanish instead of English. In my home, Spanish was the first language spoken since my father and mother are from Panama and Peru respectively, and most of my family did not speak English. I was so immersed in my family’s culture that I even learned the “Peruvian dance”-Marinera. I loved walking into my home and smelling the fresh Peruvian dish my mom was cooking. That was all about to change. In 2009, Florida was struggling with unemployment and real estate issues. We moved to a small town near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania called Cranberry Township. We moved because my father’s job transferred
Of my many volunteer and paid extra-curricular activities, the most important to me is the National Art Honor Society, which extends artistic activities to my community. We organize two school events: the Festival of Trees and the Talent Competition. The Festival of Trees is an event when every school club can choose to donate and decorate a tree that we set up. All of the money raised goes to an organization of our choice. For the last 4 years, we have donated to Street Grace, which benefits the fight against human trafficking, especially in the Metro Atlanta area. I used to only be exposed to this problem in a fear-inducing way, through news articles and stories of kidnappings. However, the school event forced me to research the topic and
Everyone has their own way they do things based on what they were taught and how they were raised. Sometimes our culture strongly informs the way we view others in the world. We show this through news feeds, videos, etc. By the things we do can look really rare and taboo to others. What one views normal, another may view it very disturbing and unethical. I am going to tell you about a couple short stories that shows the cultural differences and how it can impact a person's life.
Courage is something we all possess, but no one really knows we have it until the moment arises. Just like Richard Wright in "Fighting Words" , he had the courage to pursue his dreams even if everything seemed to be against him. I have also experienced something quite similar. Ever since I could remember my father has been my inspiration, my rock, and he has given me the courage to pursue challenges that seemed at first impossible to reach. This incredible man has encouraged me to pursue everything that I desire, even when everyone and everything seemed to go against me, and because of that I have prevailed every step of the way.
I moved with my family from Poland to the United States when I was in second grade. Ever since then, I always felt the privilege of knowing two completely different lifestyles allowed me to become more open-minded. Since I am fortunate enough to remember the culture of my motherland from when I was young, I grow up admiring different culture and observing what they have in common as well as seeking things that make each country unique. Consequently, I think it was my background that shaped me to be the person I am today as I love testing new ideas.
I grew up in a small town where there was very little diversity and the importance of the exchange of ideas through culture was never placed in my head. I learned some about cultures through the classes I was in, but it never hit home about how everyone in the world can be so similar, yet so very different. Toward the middle of my junior year I met a man by the name of Bill Benson, who changed my perspective on the world in just a few hours. Mr. Benson runs a group by the name of Village Mountain Mission in which he takes several groups of people down to the Dominican Republic throughout the year to build homes for those in need. I was terrified to go at first because I would not be with my family nor would I have any way of being able to contact
When I was growing up, I experienced many hardships that most people don 't endure. I grew up in the city of Phoenix, Arizona with little to nothing. I had one little sister and an older sister and brother. Even though I was young I knew how difficult my parents had it. My mom worked three jobs and my dad worked in construction just to barely support us. My goal in school was to achieve above and beyond, only earning A’s and B’s so that one day I could take care of my parents. My parents never saw me as a “worthy” child since I was always compared to my older brother believing that I would follow in his footsteps; making his mistakes like dropping out of college and getting into trouble with law enforcement. They put me down and compared me
Being born and raised in a third world country, me and my family didn’t always have everything we wanted nor the opportunity to change our circumstances. Nevertheless, we had each other and we were more than content. My mother had me in her early 20’s and had to work overseas to help provide for our family. My early childhood I was raised by my grandfather and cousins in Manila, Philippines. I later moved in with my mom and step father to America at the age of seven. Exposure to the American culture at a young age I was able to adjust to a memorable childhood, nevertheless, I had to work twice as hard as the other children because English was not my first language. At age eight, I had a preview of hard work, but it did not stop there.
