Only a couple months before Vivien was born her parents bought a house in Darjeeling, near the Himalayas. Soon Vivien Leigh was born, she was a beautiful and perfect baby (Edwards 22). They had no more children after Vivien so she was an only child. Vivien’s mother had put her on the stage and encourage her acting career since she was three years old. Then she was put in her mother’s theatre group while her father fought in the war as part of the English Army.
Even if she had only a dime to save her life she would give it away. For an example, When my sisters, brother, and I was little life was tough for my mom. She had nowhere to go at point in her life. Nobody wanted or would help her. She was kicked out, but she did everything for us still.
When she woke up behind a dumpster one morning, barely dressed and near death, she admitted that she needed help. With the help of her boss she attended an addiction clinic, where she embarks upon her road to recovery, which was successful. She became sober and stayed with the help of a sponsor named Val. At the age of 27, she went the a community college, even though she never finished high school. It took her five and a half years to complete a two year program.
The family that I conducted the interview was the Lopez family. I met with the family Lopez on November 29, 2016. The last time I had seen them was a year ago. Mrs. Lopez is an old friend of mine from my previous job at a preschool. The Lopez family came over to visit and to get a hair free cut for their son, Sebastian.
My sisters were in high school, still teenagers. They convinced me that I should go back and complete my degree. This is why it was so important for me to continue in school. “The three of us, my two younger sisters and I had worked in a tomato factory that summer before I went to my field placement in Cincinnati. My little sisters gave me part of their money to get me to Cincinnati and have something to support myself until the agency gave me a stipend in October.
My sister lives on the East Coast due to her husband’s job, but she has come back to continue her education. When she first came back, my niece was only attached to her and would not let her leave her sight. I remember the first few times my sister left her to get a shower, even if we had her in the bedroom next to the shower, she cried the entire time. We tried everything in our power to get her to be quiet but at first it did not work. Within a week however she
I went home that night in a silent car and my dad carried me to bed. The following morning one of our close family friends, Dr. Russell, looked at my leg. The X-rays concluded that if the bar had landed on the other side of my leg it would have broken my tibia and fibula, resulting in surgery, but my injuries were all muscular. The weight and speed of the bar had crushed my calf muscles and injured my achilles; consequently, I would never regain full motion of my right foot. I had to return to school the following week, which happened to be the week of my eighth grade graduation.
1) In high school I began volunteering at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in the summer of 2012. Unlike most volunteering areas, I was placed in an outpatient sports medicine department. After volunteering there for 4 years, I learned to interact with patients, physical therapists, and sports medicine doctors. This exposure allowed me to appreciate the various areas of healing that occurred for some patients. Some would come in to see the doctors, and then a week later move up to work with the physical therapists.
On top of it all she was living in poverty during these traumatizing experiences. Oprah once said, “I am so grateful for my years literally living in poverty because it makes the experience of creating success and building success that much more rewarding.” It was this mindset that carried Oprah through hard times and made her the strong women she is today. After her previously mentioned failed child birth, she escaped to live with her father. This was Oprah’s first taste of success as she was rescued by education. Oprah’s father made education a high priority,
Her mom could see that Anna was bothered by her lack of height and comforted her. One example of a sacrifice is her parent's commitment to supporting Anna’s acting career. Even though they had jobs and social lives, Anna’s parents never complained about the long drives from Maine to New York for prestigious auditions. This shows heroism by her parents sacrificing their time to drive Anna to auditions. An additional piece of evidence is how whenever an audition or show didn't go as planned, Anna’s parents always showed compassion by reassuring her that one poor show wasn't the end of the world.
They were married for eighteen years and got divorced in 1980, my mom was in the fourth grade. In 1982, on Valentine 's Day she married my Papa Mackey. At the end of that school year they moved to Norman Oklahoma. When my mom was a senior in high school it turned out my Granny had colon cancer and had a fifty-fifty shot at living.

There hasn’t been some an event that I consider special but I’ll hope that will change in the last 2 years of high school. However, 3 eventful things have happened like in the last school year I met Maria Camila Rodriguez but out of kindness we call her “The Rich Girl.” A party for my fifteenth birthday was celebrated in the ninth grade as well and my newest friend is Leah Duboy, a new student at the school. Whom, I hope make memories with. After high school I hope to go Miami-Dade College to a few Associates’ Degree and then to Barry University for a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in English Literature to become a
