I personally think that even though people swear they love diversity of race and culture their actions show the opposite. I think as long as people respect each other’s decisions, culture and preferences everyone will get along with each other within neighborhoods, work departments,
but I just want to let my parents know that no matter what I 'm their daughter. All of my friends have been very supportive and being in GSA I don 't know it just makes me feel apart of something. Something bigger than myself. It makes me feel good because I know I 'm helping a bigger cause. Last year was a big step for the LGBTQ community because gay marriage was legalized in all 50 states.
Cultural Thank you to everyone who nominated me for Cultural Chair. For me, I was involved with cultural events throughout High School. I was involved with International Festival and Vietnamese New Years. I always wanted to learn more from other cultures because I know it is important to know about others if you want them to understand about your culture.
In any setting, inclusion is all about allowing people to participate in different activities in the system regardless of their background or even the situation which they are in. • All the people should be included in all activities in order to make them feel involved in all activities. • Inclusion is not just about viewing different people as one but more about giving different people equal opportunities in school and enabling them to access quality education like any other person in an education setting. This is thus, an environment in which everyone is recognized in their efforts. • They should also be accepted and any difference or similarity between the people should be celebrated by all the people in the system.
Steinbeck utilizes Lee’s Chinese ancestry to develop the concept of timshel, and establish its relative significance within individual lives as well as society at large within the American society in order to exemplify the lofty and substantial role Lee retains in the lives of those around him.. After years of abiding by the social stigma Americans associate with a Chinese servant, Lee abandons his pseudo foreign attributes, but
Children would make friends without looking at outward appearances and if that is something that I can learn and understand then I will achieve more. Getting involved in community and volunteer work will expose me to many different cultures and races. Community work will give me the confidence to speak to different people who all experience different things throughout their lives. The volunteer work is a more in depth aspect because that means that I can encounter various races and cultures. This would then give me the opportunity to learn new things.
I was born in a family with strong cultural and poetic atmosphere. My father is a lover of Chinese traditional literature, so he has put many efforts in improving my capacity of creating graceful Chinese articles since I was a little girl. I learned the principles of various rhetorical techniques from him and enjoyed applying them into my daily writings in Chinese, ranging from private journals, language classes assignments to composition campaigns. My passion for the literary glamour has been ignited since.
We asked her three questions and she kindly shared her opinion with us. She said she feels proud of being Austrian because Austria was chosen as one of the best places to live in several times already, which means they have good living conditions, and people are happy here. And also the beautiful nature makes people feel happier other than people in other countries. However, she was not sure about other Austrians have strong sense of identity as well. Based on her experience travelling many foreign countries, she said she had the feeling that Austrians have a little bit individualistic way of life compared to people in other countries.
So, I decide to talk about the friendship of my life in Activity 4. In my story, I will present my best friends in different periods of life, particularly during the tough time when I moved to the United States. I will explain why I have chosen these to talk in below. Due to the one-child policy enforced by Chinese government, I was the only child of my parents.
My participation in MUN further allows me to present and defend opinions of Iran, Iraq, and the United States, not only pushing me outside of my comfort zone but also instills understanding and respect towards other cultures and values. My passion for dancing to Bollywood music has only been met by my Chinese choreographers who also share the same values and were willing to endeavor together to make this year’s Diwali Night a night brighter than the last – and extraordinary it was. Contrary to traditional beliefs, culture does not set a person apart; rather, it gives a reason for people of different backgrounds to sit together under one roof and eat the scrumptious delicacies each race has to offer. Culture molds me into a better human being as it presents some lessons of life which otherwise would have taken a long time to be discovered. I know the worth of my culture and have accepted it as an essential guiding element of my life.
Diversity Practicum #1 For my first diversity practicum outing, I went to Lalibela’s Ethiopian restaurant in Sioux Falls. I am typically adventurous when going out to eat to hole-in-the-wall restaurants like this, but this was definitely different. Upon first arrival, the place was empty except for a table of young adult males in the back who all stopped to stare at me when I got there. They soon returned to their conversation in a language was that was completely beyond me.
In diversity class this semester we got the chance to immerse ourselves into a culture of our choice. I decided to immerse myself into the Native American culture, specifically the Choctaw Indians. We learned a little about each culture in class, but this is the culture that interested me the most. I immersed myself into the culture by attending a Native American girls sweet sixteen birthday party. I truly enjoyed myself, the way that they celebrate is unlike any culture that I have experienced.
Slavery: Good or Bad? Was slavery a good thing? In the story Nightjohn, we see slavery in the perspective of the slaves. Nightjohn was a slave who escaped slavery, but came back to teach other slaves to read and write. The themes I focused on the most were prejudice, getting along with others, and freedom.
Reporters, flocking around me, all my eyes could see were the staggering number of camera flashes and the reporters repeatedly asking the same question, “Hicham, how did you manage to smash the last world record by nearly 20 seconds?” Still being out of breath from the race my lungs could not manage to gather the air needed to answer the question that required a long explanation. Soon after, one of my coaches grabbed me what seemed like my 10th water, my brain descended from the notorious runner's high after taking a long sip of water. Knowing the reporter’s apprehension, I started explaining to the various reporters what exactly happened during the historic race I ran a mere 10 minutes ago. As I spoke all of the reporters from the many news stations leaned their microphones in so they could all hear what exactly happened during the historic 1-mile race starting the race in the middle of the pack was my original plan which my body carried out throughout the beginning of the race.
Throughout my high school career, I have met countless people who have greatly impacted my life. I have made and lost friends, but I have learned something from each and every person I have met. Moreover, I have become a strong, independent young woman due to the fact that I have grown and learned from each and every situation that I have been through. Even though I have met several people and have an abundance of friends, there was always one person who stuck out the most to me. In my sophomore year of high school, I met a boy who I grew undeniably fond of.
