As I look back at my semester of learning about different cultures, identity, and immigration, I was able to reflect on how to relate this to many different resources, including myself. I was able to grow as a person and gain so much knowledge about different perspectives I would have never learned about without this class. Although people believe adapting to the cultures they do not know about or care about is unnecessary, we need to consider and be knowledgeable about how other cultures work to understand society. Since the world is a diverse place, being unaware to these new cultures will result in a community of people who are unable to grow culturally and keep in the shell of their own cultural society. Coming into college at Butler University,
The fast pace of this environment requires so much more, between technology with all procedures and documentation, and also the more complex patients, there is less time for the explaining and support. Less support is a real challenge with Millenials and retaining them because if they are not comfortable or given the opportunity because we are “too busy” to show them, they won’t want to stay. Although, maybe this is my perception and they don’t require as much as they are learning the newest trends in school. I would guess that the Boomers and Generation Xers feel the climate is an inclusive one and moderately favorable atmosphere, whereas Millenials I do not think they feel as included and cohesive. I see some definite generational gaps, the Millennials don’t seem as respectful, the way they speak to physicians or even to me is appalling, and just flat out refusing to do things, I am not used to that.
As an Honors student, I feel is it important to have a strong cultural understanding of others. Because I have never been out of the country before, my exposure to other cultures has been limited by borders. The Honors Trip will allow me to expand my horizons beyond just American culture, which is important to my understanding and acceptance of others. Leadership and independence are two important qualities for Honors Students to possess. By going on this trip, I hope to further develop both my leadership skills as well as my independence.
There was an instance when I printed out the papers to file for emancipation from my parents, but I was just trying to wrap my head around the fact that my life was going to change for the better. It was in this new environment that I had the chance to thrive and become a strong independent person. Moving was a blessing in my life because it gave me so much more than a new house in a new town; it gave me a vast number of friends, a way to adapt to newfound situations and the strength to face my fears. I know how guilty my parents felt for uprooting my siblings and I, but God does everything in life for a reason and sometimes it is difficult to see the bigger picture but once I did it was quite the
When he says, “I wanted to know the meaning of things... I am the meaning” (94) he is realizing that he has found what he was subconsciously looking for all along: his individuality. His smarts, endless curiosity, and passion for learning are what made him an individual and gave him the ability to start anew. In some ways, one could relate his story to situations we are faced with in the modern world today. People are afraid to show any signs of individualism, and would rather conform to those around them than stand apart from the crowd with their uniquity.
What I noticed most about myself in this short timespan at Nazareth is that differences are essential to a happy world. Before coming to college, I had a terribly narrow view of the world. For most situations, it was my way or the highway. I often thought other’s opinions did not matter as much as mine, but interactions with other students in both academic and social life gradually changed this perception. Now I am able to accept new viewpoints and learn from others.
The people who always wanted more and kept track of every second that passed by. He could not handle the insults and judgments anymore; it was time to be happy once again. To be with people who appreciated one another and the world they live in. I left my family for a few years to gain clarity and understanding; I also had a good bit of self-growth in this absence. This journey helped me to understand that even though I did not agree with the lifestyles or choices, I could still be friendly with my family members.
With multimodal designs I was able to show my readers whom I’m specifically referring to. I learned that with the multimodal design component I am able to persuade my audience much better. However, if I had not included any multimodal design component my project would have been very tedious which many readers do not like to read. I learned from the revision process from feedback from the professor, peer and self-editing is that the more I revised the better it will come because there is always something in the paper which part is unclear to the reader especially for me, my paper was little unorganized, which could have been better if I would have done several revision on
Some of the people are rejecting new things because they do not want to start all over again. Some people will still accept the innovations because of their jobs need or the interest of the new things around them. According to the article the ordeal of change written by Eric Hoffer, the author states that a workingman will do his job leisurely because he is sure about his skills. However, when things change totally different, the workingman must to do the job and unwilling to work in the new environment. The workingman needs to adjust in a new situation for a period of time and get used to the new working environment.
Cultural diversity is very important because we learn from one another, we come up with new ways of thinking, and it helps us recognize ways of being that are not necessarily our own. This diversity has built bridges to trust, respect, and understanding of many cultures around the world. Furthermore, this diversity makes our nation more of an interesting place to live, as many immigrants from many diverse cultures contribute to the new knowledge and different experiences that make this grand nation unique. It will be such a shame for the United States to close its doors to the immigrants who risk their lives to try to find an opportunity to build a better life for themselves and their families in this majestic nation of
I chose to attend community college in the United State because of two reasons. First, I am an international student. My purpose is not only school but also new cultural. I do not want I become a person who have high knowledge but without any experiments. I think, “If I choose community college to begin my study in the United State, I will have more time to learn about the habits and customs of the US” and I am happy because I did that decision.
It is hard to progress and mature but it is a necessary part of life, that in turn helps a person get through life and evolve into a new and better person. Holden Caulfield, the protagonist, in JD Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye transforms into a more mature person but in the processes starts to spiral out of control. As Holden progresses through the story he starts spiral out of control and doesn 't know how to channel his emotions in a positive and healthy way. When Stradlater wouldn 't tell Holden what he did with Jane he did, “This next part I don 't remember so hot. All I know is I got up from the bed, like I was going down to the can or something, and then I tried to sock him, with all my might, right smack in the toothbrush, so
My friend and I are struggling to change our mindset, from fixed mindset to growth mindset. We don’t blame our parents for that, and we can’t, because we also learn at school and at our community, which are really out of our parents’ control. Instead, we are thankful to becoming what we are and knowing that we are able to change our mindset now. I know change is hard, but it is possible and worth it. I like the quote from Mindset book, “Change can be tough, but I’ve never heard anyone say it wasn’t worth it.” (Mindset 246) It is become the biggest challenge in our life, because if we want to change our mindset, then we need to change it now while we are young, otherwise it would be too late.
