When completing my self-discovery tapestry, there were a few things that have been important and remains vital until now. I have always been a happy person from a young age and has kept that positive mood throughout my life. I had sad moments happen in my life but it was nothing I could not turn around to become positive. Another element that has always been important in my life is being creative. From the time, I started kindergarten, I was always creative in doing projects.
The documentary film “The Harvest/La Cosecha” is based on migrant agricultural child labor. In some countries, children work 14 hours a day, 7 days a week.

One such memory was of when school would let out she would go and work the field with day and the cousins, this memory let you infer that Henrietta was a hard working young woman who did whatever she could to help out her family. Often “If the weather was nice, when they finished working, the cousins ran straight to the swimming hole they made each year by damming the creek behind the house” (The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, pg 20). “At nightfall they built fires with pieces of old shoes to keep the mosquitoes away, and watched the stars from beneath the big oak tree where they’d hung a rope to swing from. They played tag, ring-around-the-rosy, and hopscotch, and danced around the field singing until Grandpa Tommy yelled for everyone to go to bed” (The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, pg 20). Those memories allowed for the inference that Henrietta loved her family and that they were extremely close.

We used to laugh, play, and have fun together when we were kids. Danaka also has a child of her own now, and I strive to become the loving, caring mother that she is. I look up to my sister because she is caring to all around her, she treats everyone with kindness and respect, and she has a gigantic heart for the world. Danaka and I used to always play together. We would laugh, sing, jump around, and just have an amazing time, no matter what we did.
The youth at the daycare never stopped smiling. They were always ecstatic in what they did no matter what problem they faced. Myself on the other hand took everything seriously and literal. When faced with a difficult situation, my mind would automatically go to the consequences and realities of the problem, not the benefits. Being at that funeral, I saw no matter how weird or difficult the problem, it is always malleable to be looked in a brighter way.
The two years that Ms. Traska coached were the most fun, productive, and memorable years that I have been on the team. When we Cheered the entire team but everything we had into in. There were moments when we were tired and worked too hard, but there were never moments when we didn't have fun. There is never a moment when I don't miss the fun we all had riding the bus to away games, helping each other get ready, and or course cheering our hearts out.
As well as the tremendous amount of joy they had while living in some of the worst conditions. Eventually the whole village welcomed us, and we could see the transformation in those living there. Men that sat along the safest path down the mountain everyday smoking helped roof one of the houses on the last day. Women stood around the children’s ministry area, first watching all that surrounded them in disbelief, but eventually joining in on singing and helping the kids with their craft projects. It would be amazing to go back someday and see how the village

As I walked out of the airport, unfamiliar faces surrounded me. I was beginning my first week in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere -Haiti. We rode in an open air box truck to where we would be staying, bouncing out of our seat with every bump along the way. I saw people washing dishes, bathing and going to the bathroom all within the same water source- while on ride to the compound. Throughout the week, children laughed and took many pictures with me.
I just continued to work cleaning the school. On weekends I would help out my brother, Panchito, and Papa. We would listen to Braceros and Papa would tell us stories that happened to him in Mexico during our half hour of lunch we had. Papa told us once that he joined the Cristero Revolt in 1926, and unfortunately he had been shot in the knee and was in jail for 6 months. Papa sometimes said that he wanted to be a strawberry sharecropper, and when the opportunity came, he felt torn.

But unfortunately this is not what David Pelzer the main character of “A Child Called It”, comes home to.
