It was July 4, 2016, when the thought of losing weight and having a toned body was a way of the past. Barbell Republic Strength and Conditioning opened their doors offering an array of cardio, strength training, and weightlifting workouts. I have always been competitive from junior high into high school (I wanted to be first) and participating in Cross Fit it has fulfilled my desire to compete. On the 8th of April, 2017, my friend Stephanie and I competed in a local charitable Cross Fit challenge in Las Vegas. The event was a day full of competition, food, supplements, clothing lines and most importantly giving back.
When I moved to the small town of Luther, Oklahoma I didn 't talk much. I was shy and had trouble making friends. I couldn 't care less about my schoolwork, even though my teachers thought I was very bright. I wasn 't interested in sports. At my old school I was active in Girl Scouts, but I lost interest in that a year or two after moving.
Growing up I was the only student of Indian descent in my grade level until the 8th grade. It was due to this I was viciously bullied and assaulted growing up. The bullying negatively mentally and emotionally affected me and it was due to this bullying I had fallen into a bad group of "friends" during my sophomore year. These "friends" kept the bullies at bay and I started to accept them. One day they had convinced and pressured me to shoplift, or face being hurt, two packs of cards, which I unwisely did because I did not want to return to being bullied and feared being hurt.
I realize that not everything will work out the way I want it to all of the time but that does not mean I have failed. I learned how to not rely on other people and how to get things done when it matters most. The last thing I learned is more effort equals better results. These realizations will all help me as I journey from high school into college and eventually into adulthood. Working toward my goal of opening my own orthopedic doctor’s office, I will be constantly be facing challenges like the ones I am facing right now.
I make decisions that’ll keep me safe and out of trouble because doing otherwise wouldn 't get me where I’m aiming to be later in life. All my parents ask of me is that I end up better than them and it’s only because they care so i 'll do what I have to do to make that happen. Another big part of my culture is respecting your parents, I respect mine. Everything they ask or tell me to do is only to make me a better person and do better
Social network are a platform for bullies to prolong and continue their bullying from school to the victim 's house. Giving the victim no rest from bullying. Additionally, the victim that gets bullied online and at school have no escape from all the hate they regularly get in their day to day life.

Without her in my life I have no idea where I would be. I know that if it wasn’t for her going through such great lengths for me I would have never been able to experience everything I have so far. I’m blessed to have such a caring mom to push me and help me through life. Her ability to persevere through obstacles and challenges makes her an exceptional leader and mentor. I know I will come across problems in life however, I also know that if I apply the lessons I have learned from my mother, I will be able to conquer any
I met new people as a little girl and let my talents shine thanks to her. She would always be there if I felt upset. Miss Michele knew me inside and out, and if the two of us had a chance to catch up, I think she still would. Miss Michele does whatever she can to aid her community, whether it be Music Together, her kids’ (former) high school, or even just her friends and family. Miss
I was miserable. The whole day that was all that I could think about. I could never get out of my head and it would distract me from doing my work in some classes that I had with him. He would throw paper balls at me in the class when the teacher turned her back. He would sometimes trip me when I went to sharpen my pencil.
Because of the statuses of each person who attends Douglass’ school, they have a common ground to discuss with each other. Although Douglass is not technically a slave like most of the others learning from him, he still is in the lowest social tier and African American. Because of their corresponding similarities, the slaves and Douglass bond over their hardships while understanding what the others are going through. It is easy to sympathize with each other because they are in the same situation. During the time period this was written, society purposely made African American slaves feel like they didn’t belong and like they were outcasts.
In the Dominican Republic, we had a wall called El Cuadro de Honor, the wall of honor. From first grade to fourth grade, my photograph and name was always on it. I loved being a student. I was excited to go to school each morning. The maestra, the teacher, taught us lengua española, ciencias naturales, ciencias sociales, matemáticas.
Three years ago, my life took a turn for the better. I moved from Virginia to North Carolina after my freshman year and it was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Throughout my transition of moving and living in North Carolina with my family, I have reached my full potential and have thrived in my academics. I have pushed myself to be the best of my ability in my academics. I am also an active member of my community through spending my time volunteering in many different forms.
