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.
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 the decision to go to school and try my best because I feel as it’ll only better me and i 'll have a better future. 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
Society has become too attached to social networks. The Cyber bully victims are too addicted to social media that they cannot detach themselves off of social media. 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 had known her by chance; she and my mom continue to coexist as friends. Miss Michele assisted me explore what my passion in life continues to exist as: music. 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.
I couldn 't look in the mirror. It wasn 't just my father; my friends at school stopped talking to me, taunting me with derogatory words and joking about the prospect of my suicide. At first I ignored it, but the invective perpetuated itself in my mind. My life had become a constant slew of criticisms simply because
It was really complicated because whenever someone saw that I was down and they asked if anything was wrong, I would act like nothing had happened the rest of the day but inside, only I knew that I was being bullied in the sixth grade. 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.
