Although it’s a new experience it builds up a lot of pressure for the first generation college students because their family excepts you to do well and make them proud. In a recent interview I did with a fellow classmate, Carmen Li, she talks about how “Going to college is not only the dream of my parents but also mine as well. I want to be a useful person and find a good career to support my family. I don 't want to live in the box under the bridge.” Many first generations can agree with what she said because no parents want their children to be living in a box under the bridge. Parents have high expectations for their children to succeed.
Rags to Riches In the story “Grades and Money”. Steven Vogel, a college professor teaching philosophy at a small private college in the Midwest talks about students worrying about getting better grades, rather than learning the material. He discusses how back when he was in school students never talked about what their grade was in a class, and now that’s all kids talk about. He gives many examples of students being open about their grades. In the story he states “ openness about grades is probably healthier than the kind of highfalutin’ squeamishness we exhibited-but rather to explain the difficulty I feel in really understanding grades, in grasping what exactly they are and what they are for”.

Monopoly Podcast Script In my everyday job as an asphalt maintenance worker, I had enough of putting in all the work I did and not profiting as much I wanted. So I talked to my dad who happens to own his own asphalt paving company and we decided I could open my own seal coating business. This is because of our Free Enterprise System, which is a system that allows a few restrictions on business activities and ownership. The 5 fundamental principals of the free enterprise system are Ownership, Profit, Risk, Competition and Monopoly. So the next day I took my right of ownership and went out and bought a seal coat tank and then I told my boss, I quit!
The poem “To This Day” by Shane Koyczan is to make the readers understand that there is hope for the ones who got, or even get bullied in school. Bullying happens every day in a regular school day and probably not on school days. “So we grew up believing that no one would ever fall in love with us, that we’d be lonely, forever.” (Line 23) The poet explains how by the countless names that the bullied endured, he thought no one could ever properly love the mistreated. “He tried to kill himself in grade ten when a kid who could still go home to mom and dad had the audacity to tell him; / Get over it.” (lines 54-56) The poet makes it known that the poem is not told in a happy mood nor can it be. The poet also includes different life tragedies and
Since I was a little girl I would always hear my parent telling my older sibling how important it was to graduate high school and go to college. Now that I am grown, I understand why my parents would tell them and me to get a degree. My parents had poor education none of my parents finished high school, because in Mexico the highest free level of school was six grade and after that the parents had to paid more expensive tuition. Like it mentions in chapter 16 about how important is for parents to give advise, listen, and encourage their children. My parents remind me how they were not able to do or have what we have now when they were my

In 2006 I moved to California with my parents, to pursue the American Dream that was dreamed by every foreigner It was seen as a great way to escape the danger and poverty we faced everyday in Peru. When we finally got here, the american dream was a myth, and working hard barely got you anywhere. Since day 1 both my parents have worked more than 40 hours a week to get food on the table, and the table back in Peru. They both support their parents and siblings financially, meaning there is no aid for me here. I wake up to do everything by myself, cook, clean, go to school, and especially homework.
I knew it a definite potential of calming me down, although I was quite mistaken. Every five minutes I was looking down at my phone, anticipating to see a message from my dad. After twenty minutes of constant anxiety filling the room, Joy jumped out of her seat and decided to take us all on a shopping trip. Shopping is one of my favorite hobbies, so I was first to accept this much needed trip of enjoyment. I knew I could never make it through the day sitting at home staring at a blank screen.
