As we all know, after hard struggle for 11 years, Mexican won the independence ultimately in 1821. However, the new country had not recovered from the destruction of the war. Its industrial and agricultural development lagged behind the United States. To some extent, its slow economic development could not support enough money for the war. What’s worse, after the independence, different political parties fought each other which caused coup and rebellion happen frequently.
My family came to United States of America two years ago, and everything was new to me. The United States was very new to me; therefore, I had to learn everything from the beginning. Once I came to the United States, I started realizing there are many differences between two countries the United States and VietNam in which I was born. New environment, new culture, and the language is the biggest issue. One of the most differences is transportation.
This is the final draft of my HCP, where I had a completely new topic for my HCP. This draft is about the Three Strikes Law in New Mexico, where we had seen a lot of increase in crime rates after the Three Strikes Law was passed in 1994. This draft involves a lot of information about how the Three Strikes Law has caused an increase in crime rates every year and what kind of crimes has increased in New Mexico City. By the end of this draft, I was not completely satisfied with my final draft because I did not get a chance to review this draft as much I thought could have done it since they were some parts in the essay that were confusing to Professor Tae Sung even though I tried my best to make sure there is nothing confusing to him in my paper.
Elvis faced many obstacles during his 24 years as the “King” he faced racial controversy, musical barriers, and bad press in order to help create Rock and Roll music. Long before Rock n Roll was created or even thought of, the musical world was divided over petty differences. One of the many reasons why music was divided was the heavy racism that plagued the United States since the end of slavery. Another reason why music was divided was the fact of a huge generation gap, or difference between parent and child. These are some of the challenges that Elvis faced.
Growing up in Mexico was very dangerous and very hard to make a living in the 1900’s. Many left because of violence from the Revolution that was taking over the Country by storm. With a country that offered no jobs or feasible areas to live, the only other human intuition was to pack up and leave to find a better life. As a Mexican traveling north to America, you only had hope to go on for a better life. Life in America would bring income, food, security, and the pursuit of happiness for any Mexicans willing to take the journey to America.

In the blazing fall, I applied to several universities. It was painfully time-consuming because the questions were as vast as skyscrapers and it required personal information: social security card, high school transcripts, typed personal statements, ACT and SAT test results, checklists, and a credit card. Even though I felt ridiculously confident, the aggravating competition against all the applicants kept my stress levels high. I was relieved to finish those applications, but it took about a week to finish all of them. The following weeks were crispy hot that if I stay outside long enough, my skin would be scorched from November’s hundred degree waves.
As the United States faces many changes, every state under its regime is affected. This is why Texas always seems to be facing issue after issue. According to current college students attending different universities in the state of Texas, the problems Texas has recently been facing ranges from: high rates of accidents caused by highway constructions; influx of illegal immigrants crossing over especially here in Brownsville; to the smuggling of drugs into the country since the Gulf of Mexico is so close. However, surprisingly each of these students living in different cities within the state have expressed that the most worrisome current issue Texas has been struggling with is funding the educational system.
The Spanish colonies in Latin America lasted over 300 years, far longer than the 76 years that the British colony lasted in the United States. The territory of Latin America was large and full of natural barriers that hindered close relations between the different colonies, but all had a strict racial hierarchy and the Catho-lic Church had an important role to play in controlling the colonies. The Church was especially important to the independence movement in Mexico. In this essay, I will describe the causes, practices and effects of the Mexican independence movement.

Since the Louisiana purchase, there was a fervor for expansion among the American people, in 1845 the then independent nation of Texas was annexed by the United states (Shaara, 12). But there were several doubts about what was the real
They did not have much time to settle down because they were so busy with everything. That probably made things 10x WORSE because they were not able to settle, familiarize themselves, and on top of that, they had to adjust to so many new things so fast. I also found out that countless immigrants continue to struggle to make a successful life for themselves in this country. This adds onto the fact that they are struggling everyday, just to make a living for themselves, when
America is changing in many different ways that is no doubt. Everything we do and say conflicts what 's going to happen tomorrow, and the most of us are too young to understand or just don 't care. America is different than yesterday, it 's different than last week, month, year! There are some good, but unfortunately there is a lot more bad out there than there is good. Sometimes you’ll meet someone and feel like youve known them your whole life.
My mom told me that I needed to start preparing my luggage. I was very confused, so I ask my mom, “get ready for what?” My mom replied, “ prepare to come to America!” I was very excited, because I have never learned or experienced of what it would be like to live in a totally different country. Full of mind was thought about how the United States will look like; what is their living environment; how do education works in school.
Coming To America Moving from my village in Nairobi, Kenya seemed like a very distant and unimaginable situation which I gave no thought to at that moment in time.
