You have to go through many obstacles to reach your goal. You also have to go through many challenges to accomplish the many different traditions you have. Many do sweet 16’s and that’s a tradition but there are much more, for example, a Quinceanera. A quinceanera is a traditional party you have when you turn 15. A quinceanera is to say that you left the little girl and became a young woman.
The poem “The Nevada Glassworks” tells about a mother growing in the 50s and a glassworking company making glass in Nevada. The 50s were post-World War II and were better known as the start of the nuclear age. It is during this time that the narrator’s mother is in her teen years and is growing up. Along with her we find that this glasswork company is also growing and is making great progress on the research they are conducting. Ka-Boom!
On November 7, my family and I were invited to attend a quinceanera. A quinceanera is a traditional celebration of life and gratitude to the fifteenth birthday of a young Hispanic girl. It is believed that it was first celebrated by the Aztecs and Mayans and was adapted by the Spanish Catholics that conquered South America. The ancient Mexicans, or Aztecs, had many ceremonies to mark passages through the stages of life. This ritual emphasizes the young girls journey into womanhood and to announce her new social role to the entire community.
Cara uses the rhetorical appeal of ethos throughout this song as she is a young woman who was 19 years old when the album was released, and she attended high school and middle school recently, and therefore can relate to the body image issues that many young women struggle with. This song also appeals to kairos as it was released recently in 2015 and the media dominates how we, as a people, perceive many things, including beauty. Alessia Cara’s target audience includes young women, ranging from preteens to women in their upper teens. This is a prime audience for promoting a positive body image because they are often targeted by the media’s image of what a perfect body should look like. The tone of this song is one of an older, more mature woman relating to a younger woman.
“ Instead once, In Latin culture,the quinceanera’s a big thing-it's when a girl becomes woman. But I think age is just a number-you become a woman with responsibilities you take on and the decisions you make.I started realizing that every day is a gift-you have everyday to be thankful you’re alive”.Emily Rios.There lots of things to talk about when it becomes on having a quince or some family member having one. It's special for that girl who will be turning quince because you only turned it once. And that day you turn 15 you are no longer a little girl and honored and introduced into their community as young women. Quinceaneras are celebrated in Spanish and Latin american countries it's also beautiful when you have one.

I started putting notice to big changes in Anne’s maturity in this part of the diary. Anne is now fourteen/fifteen years old and speaks, acts, and looks older. I can understand this because I know that I definitely felt older and more mature when I turned fourteen. It is also clear that Anne is more mature when she started talking about how she wanted someone like a boyfriend, rather just girlfriends. This was exemplified when she started opening up to Peter.
Throughout the book, An American Childhood, by Annie Dillard, Dillard uses the metaphor of waking up to describe herself growing up. Overall, I think Dillard does a good job of representing the different stages of her childhood through this metaphor. Dillard first mentions the metaphor of waking up stating that “ I was just waking up then, just barely. Other things were changing.”(10) and that “I woke up in bits, like all children, piecemeal over the years. I discovered myself and the world”(11).
The appeal of adulthood and independence reaches its apex in fervent children. However, Maria Mazziotti Gillan, poet of My Daughter at 14, Christmas Dance, 1981, conveys the paternal perspective of viewing one’s own kin experiencing the “real” world through her daughter’s first relationship. The Family of Little Feet, written by Sarah Cisneros, illuminates the negativities of young girl’s eagerness to physically develop in hope of acquiring attention from possible suitors. While both pieces of literature possess varying perspectives of epiphanies, Gillan and Cisneros divulge the significance of cherishing one’s youth, as the realities of maturity divest children of their innocence.
The Medias’ Positive Influence on Nursing As far back as elementary school we are asked, “what do you want to be when you grow up;” and each year on Halloween children dress up as their heroes in hopes that one-day they will be just like them. Most often a child wants to be what they see in books and most importantly on television. The media influences us at all ages. The media has the ability to reach millions of people providing a positive impact on the image of nursing. A Positive Perception The media plays a major role in the way we perceive professions and it has an impact on the decisions we make in regards to our own career choices.
