“Subsequently, he spent his college years volunteering for New York group Two Birds, One Stone, delivering extra dining hall food to homeless shelters,”(Sumitra 1). Robert Lee has always helped people in need. In college, he joined a group that helped feed the homeless in college. Diane Beasley writes, “That was when he learned the magnitude of the problem.One in six Americans struggles with food insecurity. Yet in the United States, 40% of food goes to waste,”(1).
Then came time where we couldnt go skimming because it was to cold so we had to wait awhile. Months passed and then there was the next summer. All i ever wanted to land on a skimboard was be able to do a 3 shuv. I tried for countless hours and couldnt get it and it was really starting to piss me off. By the end of that summer i came so close to landing it but it just didnt happen.
I no longer enjoyed thinking about the future because I didn’t know how long my dad would be in it; ALS patients can survive for a few short months or in rare cases decades. Watching him struggle to do simple tasks like walk and talk was devastating, but I had to be strong for him. My father required a lot of care as his disease progressed and I was always there for him in every way I could. My dad developed bronchitis eleven months after I received the news of his disorder. For patients with ALS breathing is typically a difficult task, having
On the ninth of April, the growing thaw forced the crew to abandon all non-essential supplies and take to their three lifeboats. The boats were named the James Caird, the Dudley Docker, and the Stancomb Wills, after the sponsors of the expedition. At night they would park the boats on ice floes and make fires out of whale blubber. After a perilous six-day expedition, they arrived on the desolate Elephant Island on April 15th. Although they were far from home, the solid ground under their feet was a massive relief that the men described as paradise.
People often believe that people who are successful are successful because they have natural talent. However, Orwell, in the novel Outliers, makes it clear that natural talent has little to do with success. The successful are a product of lucky circumstances, extra practice, age, and family status. Many coincidental circumstances lead to other opportunities that allow someone to excel more than another. From there they continually excel and are considered successful over those that did not have the same opportunities.
During the start and the end of the fall semester year of 2015/20116 at Montgomery College, my life changed dramatically for me. Going back to school after graduating four years ago at Baltimore Freedom Academy high schoolHigh School has been challenging for me, but of course it’s challenging for anybody with the same circumstances of not being academically active for all those years, and almost forgetting all the retained information that was given from previous teachers. I felt like my brain was rotting, yet the really bad part about it is that, I wasn’t doing what I loved, which was playing organized college basketball. Throughout my journey of the fall semester, challenges came my way from left to right, but the hardest of all that I’ve faced are adjusting to the student athlete life style again at a college level, trying to learn and complete all that’s given to me from my professor, and working a part time job to help support myself. Upon my preparation for the fall semester, I was able to work out during the summer at the Montgomery College gym, the gym was packed with other students that where were in the same
Service Learning at Camp Ketcha For my service learning, I volunteered in their nature-based preschool that is open to children with developmental disabilities, though not all of the children have disabilities.

Our Ketcha team currently has a wealth of camp & outdoor experience that guides our work each day.
“Can Society Function Without Respect?” To me I fully disagree that society can function without respect because respect is what holds society together. Especially with respect there is optimism which in my opinion is showing positivity, care, or respect to someone. I like to focus on being optimistic, and I would like to think of myself as an optimist by talking to people, making them laugh, or just helping out. Staying on the topic the whole world would not be able to function because there is not one person on earth that does not need or deserve a little respect. Even some people don’t deserve as much respect than others, everyone still shows optimism in many different ways, some just being their selves.
For the next two weeks, I lived with no electricity. It was unbearable to sleep and doors. Along with hundreds of other people, I found myself spending the days at the beach. The public park showers became my shower for the next two weeks. Charlie was only one of four hurricanes that I would experience while in Florida.
He established almost 20 foster homes within his lifetime (homes that house a group of foster kids), and made it his goal to guide the youth in the path of God and the church. His restaurant was closed on Sundays so he could attend church. They’ve also provided a two week summer camp for boys and girls at Berry College. Truett Cathy built Chick-fil-A in the image of Customer First and Customer service that makes you want to come back. He died in 2014, on September 8th.
It was only eight o’clock, but the sky was as dark as night when the cold and rocky bus ride I had endured for more than three hours finally came to an end. I traveled to Alaska with my mission team hoping to learn about the Iñupiat tribe and to evangelize about the gospel. Deeply buried near the edges of the Bering Sea, the Iñupiat tribesmen fish, farm, and hunt daily to provide for their families. They surprised our mission team by welcoming us with two large pots; one filled with walrus meat and another filled with their traditional dish of shimmered and shredded fish mixed with berries. Their hospitality was unexpected and helped me to experience their culture from the inside—something that I could never have experienced from a National
