I think it is amazing that even though he has been through so much he has fought through it because he didn’t want to give up golf. Lee once said "I 've been hit by lightning and been in the Marine Corps for four years. I 've traveled the world and been about everywhere you can imagine. There 's not anything I 'm scared of except my wife." Lee Trevino has always inspired people, whether your golfer or not that you can do anything you want to do.
The 1920 games were the VII Olympiad and had 29 countries compete in many different sports. Germany, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire were not invited since they lost World War I. There were no new sports, but since these games predated the Winter Olympic, there were 10 winter sports that countries competed in as well. The United States won these games with total number of 95 medals which included 41 gold and 27 silver and bronze medals. Then, in 1924, France hosted the VIII Olympiad in Paris and saw 44 countries and nations compete.
Even if I wanted to have a lot of fancy stuff we never had a lot of money so we barely met the requirements for the home so I really studied hard so that I can try to become a little bit bigger than what my dad used to be and I always dreamed about going to America even from my childhood….I don't know why. That's it, I had very good friends and I used to play with them, study hard, and that’s it.”. Based on what he told me I can’t even imagine how life was for him. How would it feel if you were in the same exact position when you were younger? What would you
The day began like any ordinary day except on this day a scene I envisioned for years was about to occur. Finding me trapped in a moment in space and time with a huge decision to make as my heart kept pounding [IT/DC]. Growing up I was fascinated with extreme flips. I longed to learn the front flip. I had no professional training only a bunch of old mattresses to practice on.
The USA was the dream place for me, and the land of opportunity not only because it was a beautiful place but also I was thinking of starting my career in this competitive country. I had dreamed of the US since I was young, those big city-center towers, people walking in the big streets and in the streets filled with cars. Now, after almost one and a half years living in America, I still remember the day I left my country. It was very difficult to leave my family, even though I said goodbye to all the best friends. Finding new friends was not easy for me, because people here are not friendly, but in my culture we usually do not make new friends with ease.

My father always cherished and motivated me to achieve good grades that could help me in life. The shyness and held in emotions prevented me from wanting to associate with anyone else. On the bright side, this was just the beginning of the life-changing experiences that were yet to come. In the Odyssey, Odysseus had to encounter a million obstacles and hardships leading to his return home to Ithaca, but in the end he returned home. My journey started freshman year, when I went to Perrysburg High School.
When the economy started to recover, they had to go abroad to fight for their country because of the war. After the war, they got back to daily life, and contributed to make the country’s most powerful peacetime economy. They also recorded highest marriage rate and birth rate, and became parents of the Baby Boomers. This generation has accomplished a lot throughout their lifetime, but never showed it off. No generation before and after them could do the same, that’s why Brokaw named them the “Greatest Generation.” However, I cannot agree with him yet.
During this time period I saw multiple neurologists, orthopedists, and concussion specialists all around the state and country. These physicians were not mentors to me, but the things they discussed while going through the diagnosing process thoroughly intrigued me. I honestly had no idea what it meant to be a doctor minus the various checkups and shots required for school. From the first concussion on though, I began to expand my knowledge surrounding the field of medicine. By the end of my freshman year of high school I knew this was now something I wanted to pursue and took every academic and shadowing opportunity I could to ensure this.
Fighting for the American Dream “When I asked my dad why he brought us here, he always answered, ‘for a better opportunity of course!’” (Miglani 1) For years, the United States of America was looked at by foreigners as a land of promise and opportunity like this quote from Bob Miglani article called “Is the American Dream Still Alive”. The opportunities seemed endless in America for those overseas. They would leave their homes and loved ones to travel across the world to become an immigrant in America to begin their own American Dream. Although America was not always what it seemed like it would be, hundreds of immigrants were able to make something of themselves and make those around them proud through this idea of an American Dream. Therefore, through the terror and triumphs in the world, the American Dream is achievable because of the desire to make something of one’s self can push them forward, which shows how dreams can come true.
Over the past four years I have seen more doctors than an average person will see in a lifetime. From endocrinologists to neurosurgeons, I have tirelessly sought medical treatment for multiple traumatic brain injuries I incurred at a young age. Through my personal struggle I learned that there is no adequate treatments for concussions and traumatic brain injuries in the State of New Mexico. Although the lack of these services forced me to seek treatment outside my community, it has become my main motivation to return to my community and share the knowledge I have been fortunate to receive through these many experiences. At the age of fourteen, I was the unfortunate recipient of four traumatic brain injuries, within a six-month time frame, that would result in a diagnosis of post-concussive syndrome.
Adams, a Great Man! Before taking this class I had only every studied history in high school, and like most I had a vague idea of the events that had passed. After ready thru the units and the other reading assignments my perception of the past has changed greatly. At first I had a hard time trying to find a figure of great importance on which to write my assignment on, but once I read of Samuel Adams and the unbelievably great things he did for this country my choice had been made for me. He was a great man and a true patriot.
