The story “Real Work” by Rick Braggs, told of a man who had learned some hard lessons early on in his life. He described that it might be hard, hot and you might get dirty, but it was worth it. The author showed us with his comparison and contrast of his childhood experiences working with his uncle, that he experienced things at the time, that possibly made little sense. The examples of some of the work he did, was really tough. The fraternity he mentioned made me picture someone who had to push their body to extremes for their paycheck.
But the family was soon dealt another sad blow. After working tirelessly to make ends meet, his mother became ill and died in 1768 at the age of 38.” In other words, Hamilton had to work tirelessly from an early age, with no mother or father to provide for him. With this, Hamilton inspires and amazes many by going from poverty, to prosperity.

Ereanna, I appreciate your post. Like you, my family also experienced a lot of stress while growing up. Even though our stories are drastically different, it is fascinating how when things become difficult within a family, regardless of what it is from, money, work, school. Everyone must pick up the task of taking care of certain jobs, jobs as simple as creating a grocery list. All members within the family really unite in order to keep it afloat.
Throughout the book, money was the largest issue that affected the family and their living. The external conflict caused the family to always be in debt. Debt caused the family to move around a lot in order to be in search of other opportunities. Without debt, the family would be relived and well nourished with food and a healthy environment all the time. The family would not only become healthier physically but also mentally.
I wanted so many things like nice cars, house, and family, however, realized I would have to work for it. As I grew older, I learned that my family had worked all day and all night to have a roof over my head, food on the table, and cars for transportation. I learned to find a job, to achieve dreams I wanted to have.

Although I have dealt successfully with day to day management , coordination of projects and programmes for different NGO , I now strongly feel the knowledge gap when executing projects due to lack of sound theoretical background, which is one of the major obstacles for me to advance my career in this filed.. Socially concerned, ambitious and motivated individual with over15 years’ experience and expertise of working in voluntary, non-profit , I feel I have the qualities required to study at degree level and to make a real contribution to the course.

I was born in a poor society, in Phnom Penh Cambodia, where education was hard for most people because of the financial situation. Most children in Cambodia back when I was little, had to pay to be educated. Moving to the United States is a blessing for my family and me because it gives me the opportunity to be educated.
