One of the reasons I was inspired to choose Feminism as my topic was because of the incredible speech Emma Watson gave to the UN at the start of the semester. I want to reference that speech and comment on the power it has had. Is the negativity surrounding Feminism lessening? What does Feminism mean to us today? This question will put a somewhat personal perspective on my dissertation, as before I started this course I didn't know what 'Feminism' actually meant.
From my first semester in college I could not decide what career I want to be in. After a long time thinking and researching I narrowed down my interest to political science, and my interests have directed me towards international relations and laws. I am fascinated by how the states of the world cooperate together to build a safe place for everyone. American government places a huge role in the world and many countries need American Foreign Service to help them with their problems. After hearing Melissa Martinez, I understood maybe it is good to think about working in Foreign Service.
She never thought that her fight against depression is what will help her find herself. “I am feminist” she states with a sense of pride “When I first started my activism which was focused on gay men rights , I was invited for interview with a journalist who identifies as a feminist ”.Khoukha stops for seconds and with more eager tone she continues “Little did I know that this the moment that I will starting discovering who the real me , it all began with a simple question about feminism , sadly I had a limited knowledge at the time , but the interviewer was more than willing to share with me feminist literature , she guided me and I am really grateful for
I was inspired to interview her considering her and I are an interracial couple just like how Rose and Chris were. I did the interview over a FaceTime call. Doing it this way made the interview more of a conversation. I liked how it was a conversation because even though we talk about different racial issues going on in America and we have talked about her childhood, we have not really gone in depth with many things about interracial dating. As I said before, I had done the interview over FaceTime and I had a series of question I asked, but it was all conversational and not like a traditional interview that one might think of.
When I was a young child I believed that going to college was going to be the best thing that ever happened to me. I used to watch movies, and TV shows about college and I wanted to be like those students. Living on my own, going to parties, and having a multitude of friends was on my bucket list for college when I was in middle school. The first day of college is shown to be the best day of a student’s life; yet, my first day of college was filled with tears, stress, and regret. The night before I left for college my family helped me pack so I can start my new life on campus.
Mid-Semester Reflection Aron Miller PADR-0021-017 Dr. Montecillo Upon my completion of the FOCUS assessment, I found that results were what I expected them to be. This is mostly because I am now a senior and therefore should and do know what’s expected of me. I will not be changing my major or my minor because I believe anthropology and sociology will give me the best résumé for law school and maybe even future jobs. After I receive my degree from Texas Tech, I plan to apply for law school in the greater Houston or Dallas areas. Growing up as a child I always looked up to the ‘tough’ lawyers on TV who always wore the nice suits and looked important.
Though my parents had to leave most of their family behind to provide for us, they have done it without second-guessing. My brother was eight and I was six when we ventured out into an unknown path with our mother to our better future. After we arrived from El Salvador, my father tried everything to make us feel at home. His efforts, at the time, were not enough. I missed my family, friends, my home, but most importantly my freedom.
“Our hopes for a more just, safe, and peaceful world can only be achieved when there is universal respect for the inherent dignity and equal rights of all members of the human family.” – UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka Throughout my life, I have never been completely decisive on a career path. However, in the last few years I have realized that my passion for human rights advocacy is my natural calling which I am destined to pursue. As I entered my first year of college at the University of Maryland – College Park, I took a specific interest in a group known as Consult Your Community. The organization allows undergraduate students to engage with low-income and minority-owned small businesses to provide pro bono consulting services. I
During my Master’s studies, I pursued a dual major in international relations and political science since I believed the more I learned, the more being capable of deconstructing the conventional narrative. In my life in graduate, I found my interest of being a teacher and the interest of interdiscipline study. First, though I was still challenge for my preference of gender studies from my classmates, I found myself turning out to enjoy how to tell, or even to persuade them, the importance of gender studies and how feminism impacted political theories. Also, with my job as a teaching assistant, I found my passion in advocating and telling others the importance of gender
I have actually been thinking about continuing on two get my Masters and than hopefully my Phd. in Psychology. Since entering this course Psychology as a Profession and Practice, because I have always envisioned myself having a practice with a partner and my own business. Before I get that far in my
