This paper will explain a conflict situation that happened in my life and how I reacted to it at that moment. It will then also explain what could have happened if a different approach was used, maybe it could have turned out better not only for me, but for all the parties involved. Personal conflict I faced many conflict situations in my life where I had no idea how to deal with it or what I could do to make things better.
Like the wife, Ann, I believe practically all people desire acceptance. However, life is not perfect and I know that I face rejection constantly. Like with the husband’s reasoning, often I have been excluded for insignificant reasons. Simply a change in skin color indicated an adjustment in the person he wanted to marry. In addition to the judgmental aspect, I can also relate to this man’s selfishness and desire for control in that I see people like him everyday.
Surely they’d know most refugees are not terrorists but rather human beings searching for freedom and safety? But out of the blue, it hit me nearly as hard as the tomatoes thrown at me prior the interview. Just as there are Syrian terrorists, there are refugee hating Germans such as the violent protesters and others who treat people with different beliefs or ethnicity as rubbish. Although they are usually nowhere near as dangerous or revolting as ISIS, I see them in a similar light; they are clearly not the majority, but are the loudest. After having thought of this strange reality, I had an entirely different understanding of the protesters as well as the safety precautions put in place and even had an appreciation for all the government had done to provide security while allowing refugees such as me
From the start, you have commented on my text stating that it “challenges the reader,” and that “you love [my] sentence style”. The feedback that you provided on my Personal Essay stayed intact throughout the semester, and was even more available in my Destination Essay. I had “interesting ideas” and “big moments” for the audience, according to you. Based on these comments, my self-awareness regarding my voice improved greatly in each assignment. I grew as a writer in the sense that I provided riveting topics and ideas for the reader each and every time; I felt that I engaged the audience well because I was able to switch up the mood occasionally.
My overall experience was very good and that experience is one that I will never forget, because I’ve learned so much just by being there and having to do actual assessment and vitals on real people. Plus, it was my first time in the working force and background. I would absolutely love to go back and revisit them all again. I had two particular residents of my own personally that I assisted twice a week. One of my residents had Alzheimer’s
This past two months have been rewarding, enlightening and challenging. Being my first time in taking an online class, it was really a huge adjustment for me. I was so used to the traditional setting where there is an instructor in front of the class, and the students discuss the topics in person. I thought I will not like the idea of sending an email for a question and discussing lessons through posts, but I did. I was able to say my ideas that honestly, I might have never said if I was face to face with someone.

Finding yourself alone in a new country will force you out of your shell. Everyone is filling the same as you. They are nervous and wanting to enjoy their abroad experience. You will have to approach people and make new friends, and this will increase your self-confidence.

I will explain the main points I have learned in this class, what it means to have learned all of the information, How I have changed my perspective on economics, how I can apply my knowledge in the workforce and why this course was so important to me. There were many days I would wake up and feel like not attending class but I would get up and go anyways. The
One reason was because a vast majority of the people accused were family and friends of other people. These people began to question the righteousness of the court and felt that innocent people were being executed. The main reason for the end of the trials was, because the accusations soon became too bold. In the beginning, people of low class were being accused, making it seem more believable. As the hunt continued, accusations were aimed at higher classed people.
My teacher really has my fellow classmates and myself ready for reality. She taught us everything we needed to know from the simplest to the most difficult techniques and has us prepared us for college. From the way she would teach us and also the way she treated us was an excellent way to show how the real life of a college student really does face on a daily bases. I’ll leave the class by having the prior knowledge of knowing what and how to write an argumentative essay and know how to simply justify the reading side and confront my face my fierce. This year taught me so much that I use certain techniques to help me in other subjects.
I came from a country where corporal punishment is acceptable; therefore, beating is a part of social norms to us. Our cultural belief plays another role in what we will grow up to become. Miller illustrates is based on what a perfect world should look like, but to face the reality, this life is like a roller coaster that is full of ups and downs. One thing that I observed about this book is that it is confusing and full of jargons, also, it is biased, in the sense that it is directed towards therapist, but not to audience who may be experiencing narcissistic disturbance or struggling to gain their true self. In addition, the book is not multicultural because as an immigrant to Canada, I do not see myself in this book, but I can see a little bit of my friend’s (the girl I met when I came to Canada) upbringing in it.
“I’ve been affected in a positive way by people outside of my culture because they not only accept me for me, but to go as far by teaching me about different cultures. More importantly, I have grown to value my culture and for the people that are in my life and how I as an individual am a great representation of my culture. As far as being affect adversely, I haven’t been. All in all, I enjoyed this interview simply because I went in not knowing much of the Hispanic culture, while leaving out I am knowledgeable of the Hispanics. Not only learning new things but I also met someone new as well.
