I didn’t know any English so it was a rough start, but I learned quickly. We moved several times across the States because my parents weren’t really happy anywhere at first. From California, to Michigan and then to Florida, where we finally bought our first house. Moving around a lot has taught me a valuable lesson in flexibility and going with the flow. Watching my parents struggle and change their whole lives to provide a bright and better future for me has also taught me to want the most for not only myself, but the people around me too.
There was nothing holding me down to California, other than the dislike of moving away from it. It’s not like I had many friends there. The one’s I did have were not the kind which I would try to keep any relationship with after moving away.

I visit Dominican Republic once or twice a year, usually in the summer when I get longer vacations and so my siblings and parents. When I’m there it’s tons of fun but I don’t think I see myself ever living there again. I’m so used to the things that Mexico has offered me that I think living in Mexico was very good for my life and learning. I have family in Dominican Republic, that’s why I visit a lot, and I also left behind a couple of friends whom I’m still great friends with.
You would never know the struggles people go through to become successful. LaShonda was kind enough to open up to me and tell her journey on becoming successful and enjoying life as one should.
I was so happy! My dad lived in Los Angeles, California and would come down a couple times a year to visit us but, he would never let us know, so when he came, we were always surprised! He would stay for a couple of days and then he would be back on the road. This time was different, he wanted to take us back with him for the summer to stay with him and my older sister Fanny, she was 19 yrs old, and at the time, had recently moved permanently to the U.S. She was born in Honduras and stayed there with my grandma and our older brother Jose, while my parents came to the United States to find a better life and go back to get them.
How we impact “change” in someone else 's life benefits us more spiritually than we can ever imagine, and I want nothing more to work with individuals who have the same cause as me. Physical Therapy is a career that will maximize my opportunities to improve the human experience as well as grow spiritually. Life without fulfillment or purpose is not the way I intend to live. Furthermore, I believe that this career will give back to me more than I will ever give it. My mother once said, “Without a vision you will perish”.
One could get the sense that jordan has too much confidence to allow herself to be in a relationship, like her friend Daisy. Comparatively, Catherine (Myrtle 's sister) is another independent character that is brought up in the novel. Catherine, like Jordan, has goals for herself in the future. To point out, in the novel Jordan expresses the want she has for moving and expanding her work ,"I’d like to do more work on Long Island if I could get the entry. All I ask is that they should give me a start."
When I was a year old, my mother and I left everything behind in Mexico to start a new life here in the United States. Of course, being young, I had no idea of the tremendous consequences that would be implicated upon my family and my future. She came here so we could have a chance to live the American Dream and escape the poverty and crime there was in Mexico. It was a hard decision my mother made at the time but it was the best for the both of us. When I look back on my childhood I wondered to myself how did I get through it, cause I guess you can say that I really never had a childhood like the other kids.
but I also believe Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has so much more to offer myself and the world. Who wouldn’t want to be apart of a sisterhood that engages in Educational Development, Economic Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement? The world we live in today needs strong educated black women to leave their mark and uplift the lives of others. The key to success for me is to put what I believe into practice. Think phenomenal things and then work hard to put them into action.
Have you ever been so close to a goal but you lack of confidence wouldn’t let you fly? Growing up, I have never been the most confident person, which has caused me to fail certain things. The time when I experienced a failure was when I didn’t get accepted into Newark Tech Vocational School. My family moved to from Miami, Florida to Irvington, New Jersey during the summer of 2012 due to financial issues. The move was like a fresh start, which I certainly wasn’t elated about.
The winter before my 12th birthday, my parents decided that moving to Florida was a good idea, and although it 's a lovely state for tourism, Florida wasn 't the best place for a new start for us. My dad 's side of the family has lived in Pennsylvania for generations, so the move seemed to be a fresh start and an opportunity to settle down for good with nothing from the past interfering. Florida was supposedly cheaper, more child-friendly, and the perfect place for people to redeem themselves. Unfortunately, none of these tales held any truth because when we finally found an apartment, it was overpriced, dangerous, and filled with many others with the same idea as us.
