Diversity and Difference When discussing client constraints, Mr. Bracey identified his constrains as dropping out of college and not being able to finish his education, having high expectations of his grade school teachers and family members, and his attitude towards authority.

Mr. Bracey explained the expectations from his family and grade school teachers is another constraint because his family expectations are high. He stated, “My family and my grade school teachers expect me to become this great over achiever because I was so smart in school. I try my best, but that does not seem to be good enough for them.”
I was disappointed in myself that I would easily lack when it comes to getting my education. Just when I thought about really giving up a close friend informed me about Job Corps and exactly what it is they do with young adults who are trying to obtain their diploma or to just advance their education. Realizing that without a high school diploma I’m not able to get a job so I really wanted another chance.

If a young adult doesn’t have the help from their parents who have already experienced college then they are already behind the kids who are able to use their parents as a resource. A quote by Nijay Williams in the article says, “My mom stopped school in the ninth grade; my dad stopped in the fourth grade … It makes it harder for me, [and] most of the people I graduated with are not in college, but that’s what I see myself doing; I want to go to college.

and I started to get genuinely worried because I knew this wasn’t my strong suit. English was never my good side; I’ve always been a math and science type of person. I began to ask myself, “why did I decide to take honors?” When I look back on the beginning of that year to the end, my confidence in inferring and just being able to get more out of a story skyrocketed.

It is my privilege to write a letter recommending Jim Burke, a former student of mine at Rio Americano High School, for admission to Pitzer College.
