I read the description and realized that it would be a great fit for this assignment. I was also drawn to this particular event because I grew up dancing! I saw this event as hands-on opportunity to broaden my knowledge and submerge myself into a new culture. While looking around the room, I noticed that all
I thought as I hung up the phone with images of the glitz and glam of Johnny Dare, Wolfman Jack, Casey Kasem, and Delilah running wild through my mind. I was to come dressed to impress the following morning for a tour and to fill out the official documentation. The happy dance ensued. I awoke with a song in my heart. I jumped out of bed and headed to the shower giddy like a child on Christmas morning.
My brothers and I, as per my father 's wishes, were to start not only a new school year but to start a life with his family and him. We slept on the floor, which I found kind of strange since the other kids slept on beds. The nights were bitterly cold in a house we knew nothing of. We didn 't have blankets to keep warm, so we improvised using jackets. We had to ask for permission to even the smallest of things.

As a senior at Ashley High School in New Hanover County, you have to complete a senior project. This project singlehandedly determines whether you graduate or not. It was second semester, my classmates and I were sitting in Mrs. Ventre 's class knowing exactly what was coming. We were scared, nervous, intimidated, and so much more. The way she helped me through this huge project has stuck with me to this day.
It was a true “spa night” with face masking, foot massage, healthy food and photo booth. It is a good opportunity for residents to liberate their mind from homework and relieve their stress. Lauren massaged our feet and chatted with us personally. Since she is a hilarious person, we always feel so good talking to her, listening to her interesting stories and funny jokes. Around 10 and 11pm when everyone was gone, she still stayed to clean up until everything was tidy, although as anyone else, she had so much
The line up to the counter was fairly short but since we were so excited it felt like an I’m-going-to-die-before-I-get-up-there kind of line. We finally got up to the counter, she was so nice asking where we were from and the most asked question of all if we were sisters. We got settled in with our room and getting our wristbands so we could swim. When we got up to our room on the second floor we were starving. For dinner that night we decided we would have the hotel’s buffet.
I felt as if it was just another dance and another performance. Then Mitzi grabbed my hands, bowed her head, and prayed. It went a little something like this, “Dear Lord, allow this young girl to step out onstage and not dance for a trophy but to dance because it’s what she loves to do. Keep her safe as she takes that stage for the first time as a Dance with Mitzi member. Lord, lift the stress and all burdens off this young girl because she is dancing for you.
Reflecting on my development as a first-generation immigrant, I can attribute a large portion of my characteristics and aspirations to my experiences growing up and to the role model whom I have admired, my mother. More specifically, being exposed to the tireless work ethic of a single parent who had to overcome the dual pressures of assimilation and poverty has imparted in me a respect for the ideals of continual self-improvement and advancement. My mother’s sacrifices have always been to better our family’s situation and to provide me with the best education opportunities. Recognizing my mother’s hard worked and what she has given up for me, I put my best foot forward in every situation to honor her. Looking back at the hardships such as racial discrimination and language barriers my mother had to transcend, as
An accomplishment that saw me transition from childhood to adulthood was when I got my Eagle Scout award. Since the award occurred so close my eighteenth birthday and I had been working on it for so long. This accomplishment allowed me to look back on my childhood and reflect on everything that I had had to do to earn this award but more importantly reflect on what I had learned in my travel through scouting. This was not only a growing up process for me but for my community and family.

Growing up Ignorant Getting a good education in Bridgeport is not an easy thing to do. From the very start, teachers have low expectations of us. They look at us like we’re slow and simple minded; they talk to us as if we can’t comprehend; they hover over us as if we need the extra attention. My question is why? Why are we treated as if we’re all dense before we even get to show our potential?
