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. By putting in my full potential, I feel that I can become the sister and daughter that my parents will be proud to have. 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
To the Brothers of the Phi Chi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated First I would like to say thank you for taking the time to read this letter. My purpose in writing this letter is to express my desired interest in joining the Phi Chi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated. Growing up being bullied and constantly picked on with no one to protect me in my time of need and having no one to reciprocate that same sense of protection and love left me left a big void in my life. Being raised in a single parent household my mother tried to take on both roles and raised me to become the man I am today. Always pushing to make A’s and B’s and be an honor roll for majority of my grade school career, and having me in school every day and
I would have never wanted to go to a different school. My experience at St.Rita has helped shape me because there are so many opportunities to shape myself. The opportunities they offer help shape you because they help you become who you want to be, whether you want to be a singer, athlete, or an actor. This school has helped shape me to become a compassionate person. Although I have became a compassionate person I will miss a lot of things here at St. Rita.
There were times when my parents spoiled me but I was always taught to be thankful of the things that I had and to not be so selfish. Having two other siblings helped me prevent the want of being selfish. I do not know what I would do without my family. My family is very inspiring because they show me all aspects on how I should live my life through their experiences like education, parenting, and work ethic. My family’s past experiences also teach me how to live my life the best way possible.
My family has always been very united but one day my dad emigrated to America, I was 5 years old and missed him a lot because I thought he was missing out so many important events of my childhood and all the new things I was going through, but he would always tell me that one day I would come to America and I remember I would get very content about it but as I was growing up I was making new friends, meeting new people and “living life” that I forgot about the idea of coming to America. As years were passing by, my family began to tell me that I had to enjoy every second in my country since it was probably my last year in Honduras and I believed it at first but then it never happened so I was so busy with school that I never thought the day would come. It was July 31, 2013, when I realized that the day my family and I has been waiting for had come. I and felt so different and I knew something was about to change in my life, though I was unsure of what it was I did have an idea of what it could be. “The day has come” I whispered.
Similarly, mom and dad raised me in the way my dad was raised. Frankly, it’s hard to explain the impact my family has on future. I don’t think I would be as confident and ambitious as I am today without them. I am forever in debt to them. I know that they are proud of me; they tell me that every day, but I plan to exceed their hopes and dreams for me because Papa taught me that regardless of my environment I am the product of my choices and the pave maker of my
Immigration Immigration has always been a hot topic during a presidential election year, and this year is no different. Legal immigrants are often celebrated, while unauthorized immigrants are often blamed for many things that are wrong with the country. Still, millions of immigrants from around the world come to the U.S. each year seeking to take advantage of everything this country has to offer. Historical Immigration Trends The Migration Policy Institute has researched U.S. immigration trends of foreign-born people with no U.S. citizenship at birth dating back to 1850. Immigrants as a percentage of the U.S. population have fluctuated over the decades, but in 1850, immigrants represented 10 percent of the total population.
When I was chosen by my teachers to apply to be a member of National Honor Society, I was very honored. This honor is very dear to me and is further validation that I have demonstrated my willingness to work hard, help others and be a contributing member of society. I believe that I possess the qualities to be an asset to this organization because of my hard work, morals, respect, academic excellence, leadership and service to the community. These qualities have been noticed by the teachers around me and I thank my parents for instilling these attributes in me at such a young age. My academic achievements have not always been easy for me.
Since I am the oldest child, I’ve always had to send a good message to my younger siblings and take responsibility for my actions when I didn’t. No one can have perfect character, it is impossible because everyone makes mistakes. I have shown responsibility by doing what 's right even though there might be consequences. When I make a mistake, I feel very bad and try to make up for it by making sure the work is perfect. I am always honest even though I know I could alway take the easy way out by cheating or lying.
My favorite feeling is being content, which is hard to express. So, one of my biggest struggles in leading the team was showing my emotions in a way that encouraged all of us to improve. Through this experience I learned the importance of having a good attitude even when underneath you are frustrated. The power of positivity is something I still struggle with, but I have been able to more fully apply it to my life since realizing
