I was upset with the lack of assist from my counselor at a time of need. Not only that the lack of compassion but giving me bad advice. I know GCU is about ensuring their students are successful with their classes and yesterday didn’t seem like so. I’m very upset but still managing to keep a float in my classes but I can’t get pass that my counselor who
Being a first-generation Canadian and when Canada is as diverse as it is, I never got the opportunity to truly connect with my own religion. I realized early on that having that knowledge of diversity provides a competitive advantage in the business environment, as communication and connections are easily built. To accomplish this, I decided to join the International Languages Program in grade 6; however, even with the four years I spent in the program, I never truly built the connection that I had so desired. It was not until grade 12 when I had that opportunity, as David Suzuki Secondary School (D.S.S.S.) introduced its first ever Sikh Student Association (S.S.A.
I came to Canada a year ago. As a new emigrant I faced many challenges, that has changed my life. When I arrived with my family in Canada, my parents had a small deposit that just supported us, as a family, for a few months. After that, my parents could not find job due to lack of English proficiency. Canada’s government help us with a small amount of money that helped us to live.
Deciding to attend Texas A&M University was both a hardship and immense, opportunity in my life. Coming from a close knit background, and possessing a very family oriented character, my decision to come to this incredible institution was one out of my comfort zone. If I was to be asked one year ago, If I could ever see myself standing on this marvelous campus, attending one of the top schools in the nation, I would have honestly responded, no. My counselors would have said no, my friends, my college advisor, my family. The answer would not have been yes, not because I wasn 't capable of meeting the standards to attend, but because there seemed more obstacles in my way than there was forces pushing me forward.
However, her most memorable traveling experience is when she was 20 years old and decided to work as an au pair in Toronto,Canada. ”Traveling to Canada is one of the most challenging things I have ever done,” my mother says as we begin the interview. ”It is an experience that was both good and bad, and ultimately made me mature a lot. There is quite a lot to talk about, but I will try to keep it as short and simple as possible.” ”When I arrived at the airport the whole family I was supposed to stay with was there welcoming me.” She smiles, ”there were two children; Amy who was six, and Michael who was 2, and the two parents Philippe and Linda. They seemed like nice people,however,”she says and frowns,”everything did not turn out great.” When she arrived at their house she discovered that it didn’t quite match with the picture she had received previously.
I still remember the day April 14th,2008. I can still recall those moments, the part where my parents told me, we are moving to Canada. My parents had just told me two days before flight. They never told us before because we would get over excited, and tell this to everyone. Going to a foregin country is a big deal.
It was a total mess, I was having unacceptable grades, difficulties in keeping up with the class and so on... After struggling for semesters, I finally realized that I wasn 't meant to be an engineer. So instead of chasing a dream that wasn 't meant to be and at the same time spending so much time and my parent 's money, I decided
Ability Profiling and School Failure by Kathleen Collins illustrates how Laura’s generalizations and lack effort to understand Jay hindered his ability to grow throughout the school year. This lack of understanding in the complexity of Jay’s learning experience reveals a greater systematic issue. Laura constantly blamed Jay’s behavior on his upbringing and labeled him as emotionally impaired. In this complex situation Laura did not look at all the possibilities for Jay’s performance in school. She had a preconceived idea of Jay’s abilities, which led her to her harsh treatment of Jay.
When I first registered at IVC back in 2013, I was still stuck in my high school persona about school as a whole and after placing in low remedial classes I became demotivated to progress. I did not take school seriously and failed to achieve respectable grades. I knew this attitude towards school would
I used to have this grudges in my heart when everything go hard that would made me wanted to blame my parent. But I can’t because I was not raise to think that way. When I come to America, I was eleven years old and no one asked me if I wanted to come it just happen in a second. I was in a cold place with extended family that I never met before and that one person who raise me and made me feel secure was still back in the country. I had to lived months without her and next thing you know I adapted and convince myself they are doing this because the wanted the best for me.
At first I thought the whole thing was fake in my head and didn’t believe it so I just went on with my day. Last block came about and that was my only normal class of the day believe it or not. Then I went home and nothing really happened after that. Then Friday came along, students were still goin crazy and I didn’t know what to think about that. So for the whole day I was freaking out basically, weird sounds were coming about, students we 're going home sick left and right, it was just a weird week of school.
