However, after I fathered my first born I knew I had to do something different for him. I wanted him to have a better chance at life than I did. The choices I make should never affect my young in a negative way.

That is when I began to search for schools that I could be myself in and enjoy furthering my education.

If the parents are the head of a huge gang, they will expect their children to follow in their footsteps. And if the parent lives the life of a gang member for too long then they began to see nothing wrong with their action. Since, they grew up in the family business, they will teach the offspring’s their corrupted moral and ethical values. Since the parent Unlike us, they do not have a positive role model in their lives to guide them in the right direction. They will continue to teach the younger generation that comes after them.
As doing volunteer work and going back to college I could recognize the Millennials. I found Millennials is pushy, loud and very demanding of their wants. I feel the Millennials thinks they should be running companies just because they are more technology smarter they the generations behind
They believe that what they decide is right but it really is not these poor kids have gone through so much and have dealt with personal issues and they think sending them with a specialist for a few months works? In reality these teens need a lifetime of help, they need someone to be there as their backbone for the rest of their lives if their parents and family isn’t there because the streets aren’t the best for them. A temporary therapist will not help because they try too hard to change you or push you to point where you’re upset or rebel. It won’t be effective because either it’s rushed or the teens rebel against the help.
I do not want to be constantly facing financial issues, or dealing with the task of figuring out how to make ends meet. Now don’t get me wrong, I admire them for that, I really do, but I want to do more than what my parents could do for themselves.

Every day, I am motivated to strive for only the best so that I can accomplish what I desire most. There is nothing in the world that can repay my parents for everything that they have done for my siblings and me, but making them proud comes close to doing
Role parent’s play in a child’s life is very prolific. After reading the article “Why My Mother Wants Me Dead” by Sabatina James. I realized that other countries have it in their culture to raise their children in the matter that they are accustom to.

Her cultural stress of family and inclusion have nurtured my humanitarian-based aspirations: to raise the global standard of living and advocate for survivors of crimes against humanity. My mother broke her cultural gender barriers by following her ambitions instead of becoming a housewife. Her ambition and nonconformity have fueled my determination to pursue my dream of becoming an international justice
Specifically, I want to practice family law, and help families try to stay together, even in the worst kinds of situations. I hope to influence legislation to give children more rights in the court system because I believe that they do not have enough. Finally, I hope to come back to the Independence Youth Court and serve as a mentor for volunteers just like me who need guidance in their college and career planning. I hope to continue my work with the Independence Youth Court long after I pass the Bar
Which brings me to the youth having a voice. Today, the youth is expected to grow up and learn to make their own good choices. While the youth could be ignorant to a lot of real life realities, the government has effect on us too. There are many kids around the age of 16 who do not live with
One of my biggest supporters are my parents. Their support and conviction about the worth of acquiring an education has shaped my beliefs, values and ambition to continue higher education and use my career in a progressive way to give back to my community. Unfortunately, not everyone had the same support system like I did. Many of my peers struggled whether to continue their education or financially support their family. This is a very dangerous reality within the Latino community that needs to be addressed and resolved immediately.
My parents moved from Colombia to the United States before I was born. I am apart of the first generation in my family that was born here. My parents moved with the single hope of giving me a better life with more opportunities. Having this background has definitely impacted my life in both trivial and meaningful ways.
