Menard-Warwick chose two of her female Latino English Language learner students, Camila and Trini, to interview since she thought they were most representative of all the English learning students. As a female, Camila is expected to stay at home and take care of her children and is given less important. For example, Camila refused to attend an English Learning Class only because of the $70 tuition fee, and she explained that if she uses the $70 for herself, there would be “less money for her husband’s dream [of buying a house]”. Learning English is also for the sake of family. Camila’s husband later asked her to learn English because they want to take better care of her son and to be able to communicate with him in times of need.
Nursing was never a choice I had thoroughly thought about to become my career in the future. However, when I had the chance to work as a Certified Nurse Assistant, that was my definition or the image I had with a nurse. Nursing seems like a nice job, especially when being able to talk with the patients one on one and having more time than a physician to know the patient. The Host, Takisha, was an RN who graduated from Michigan State University. I loved the way she greeted each of her patients with a smile
It was great when I worked with them because, I was so busy and my girlfriend loved that I was working and going to school. Soon it got to the point where I was seeing my girlfriend less and less.

It is very convenient to finish school online while working full time. I am so excited to take this class! I did take two years of Spanish in high school but that was eleven years ago and I remember basic phrases and spanish verb conjugations. To be honest I would not mind being fluent so I can help translate on my job but I have no clue where to start. I am married to my high school sweetheart, we have no children.
Mama also shows her generosity, as she implies that she has given up a lot of her material possessions to just see her child smile. Although she yearns to accomplish her own dream, she puts that aside to look after Walter and his sister, which shows her determination. Although she has struggled with accomplishing her dream for a while, she has not yet given up hope. Looking back to the time when she and her husband first started conceptualizing their version of the American Dream, Mama says, “(smiling) Hadn’t been married but two weeks and wasn’t planning on living here [in this apartment] no more than a year… But lord, child, you should know all the dreams I had ‘bout buying that house and making me a little garden in the back — (She waits and stops smiling.) And didn’t none of it happen” (Hansberry 35).
Dixie: My daughter done the same thing. She now has it paid off with help from us parents. She was just like you and thought she had to fit into the people around her at college.

Like my daughter didn’t even read the late policy with a credit card.
Her eyes are like chocolate chips, and her beautiful smile is like seeing the sun for a long time. When we go to new places everyone says that I look like her and I can actually see it. My mom is beautiful and kind just like me. I don 't know what story to tell you, me and my mom went through a lot of stuff and she is a very classic woman and she isn 't lazy or to fancy she is just right. She loves taking care of me and siblings.
We got to spend a lot of time with each other without or phones distracting us. Some of good qualities my mom has is that she is very generous and is very kind to everyone. My mom is very important in my life because without her i would not be here. She has taught me so much and has always encouraged me to do the things that make me happy.

Going back to school has always been on my mind but never a priority. I allowed other life distractions to interfere. After what seems like years of trying to find my identity and motivation, I have finally decided to go back to school to better not only my life but my daughter’s as well. Being a single mother of one, I want my daughter to see that not only your skill set, but a college degree is a great way to start your career and meet the expectations you set for yourself. The expectations I have for myself are finishing my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and eventually finishing with my MBA in Human Resources.
Fifteen years ago, I decided I wanted to become a nurse. It began when my mother was undergoing treatment for Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I met a wonderful home health care nurse taking care of my mother. It was then, I realized, I wanted to pursue a career in nursing. After all, I had already spent a great deal of my life taking care of my kids and family.
Sometimes just applying can open up a world of possibilities. Hershey High School senior Julia Corbin spends one or two hours everyday as an intern at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Thanks to the Health Career Explorations Program (HCEP), Corbin can experience the medical field upfront as a high school student and perhaps narrow her future job choices. Everyday from periods 3 to 5AB, Corbin follows a different nurse from a variety of fields. The fields can range from ophthalmology, psychology, to music therapy.

Determining where to go to college is a hard and stressful time, but with the knowledge of the colleges it can help make the decision easier.
