I know that some doors may be closed on me but that doesn’t mean other doors won’t open. I want to be someone who represents the Hispanic community.

Twelve years of Medical School paid off. I have mastered my craft and soon enough started a family, built a house, and traveled around the world. With the help of mastering one thing I am able to succeed in other areas. This exert disproves Ralph Waldo Emerson 's assertion claiming that never going beyond something you master will lead to "you...never grow[ing]". I disagree with Emerson because throughout my life sticking with a couple particular crafts has made me the strong, independent, and honest individual I am today.
During childhood I was taught my parents that I was to respect every body no matter if they looked different than me. Having grown in such a diversity community I never encountered problems with people form different racial or ethnic background. I believe it is a blessing to have grown up in such a diverse community because you get to see interaction between people from different cultures. Therefore, I think it enables you to approach people from different ethnic groups with an open
This job has also obligated me to learn tremendously efficient skills when it comes to managing my time.. Not long ago, My mom, siblings and I had the opportunity to go back to the Dominican Republic and visit our dear relatives. It was a marvelous experience that revived many memories of my childhood and the day we left in search of the American Dream. Even though I do not possess the perfect life, I am very satisfied with the life that I am living and thankful to be guided by the most precise definition of a warrior I know; my mom. Never in my life have I seen so much courage in a woman.

I gained a tremendous amount of self awareness and confidence, and have been more healthy minded than ever before. Ever since the moment I first visited my querencia, I knew I would have an emotional attachment to it, but little did I know that this small, simple location could make me become more spiritual, peaceful, and mentally stable than ever before. My grandparents house is my safe spot and I know that whatever happens during my lifetime, it’ll be there for me. To this day, I still get chills down my spine when I find out that I will return to their house. I will never forget the nostalgic times I’ve had which have gave me support and strength when I most needed it.
And now true son has nowhere to go, he is going to be a very lonely and upset boy. So I think true son is going to live on his own for a while and try to live with other families but I do not think anyone is going to expect or take him. As he lives on his own I think he could die of hunger or end up killing himself because he is so lonely and both of his family hate him. As and example the whites would kill him if he tried to go back.

In Canada, the people do not stress about extra healthcare costs, this thought process is non-existent (Nader, 2013). In addition, the Canadian healthcare system caters to the people and not for profit, unlike the United States (Nader, 2013).

In the spring of 2014 the tenth grade class of Small-Town Rose Valley, Saskatchewan was presented with the opportunity to travel to Hamilton, Ontario - something few of us had ever had the chance of doing. Getting accepted into The Society for Educational Visits and Exchanges in Canada, SEVEC for short, meant that we would be participating in a student exchange program and jaunting to visit and experience the lives of people in Hamilton, and that people from Hamilton would get to do the same in Saskatchewan. Our first day in Hamilton was overwhelming regarding the size of the city, however it was a lot of fun. We travelled to see Niagara Falls, which is arguably one of the top tourist attractions in Canada. Dubbed “The Honeymoon Capital of the World”, I can see how a place like The Falls would be a popular place to visit for newlyweds considering the beauty and prosperity of the place.
