1st 6wsk: Project/Test This year in my DIM class I had the option to choose between different graphic designers. I choose Paul Rand because I was intrigued by his passion at a young age. He had little to no experience when he first began, yet that did not stop him from achieving what he had set his mind on for he was very dedicated on his life goals. Paul Rand was born on August 15, 1914 in Brooklyn, New York.

He never once asked for a mere thank you. He worked hard, from truck driver to marines he could do it all and with my mom by his side, they were a power duo. As I slowly grew, I really didn’t think much about not having a dad since the only life I knew was with my mom. I would usually keep quiet on Father's Day where if I tried to talk about my dad, the conversation would always end with, “Awe, I’m sorry” or “Well you were little and didn’t know him, so it’s fine.” (Side note, if someone is coming out to you and telling you their problems, don’t degrade and minimize their issue.

A middle-aged man approached our car and asked if we were interested in buying a house, and added that this one was the last new house for sale in the subdivision. He quoted the price of $12,500 with $500 down, and a twenty-year mortgage if we needed to finance. The agent invited us inside the house for a look around. The smell of newness and highly polished oak floors caught my attention immediately, and I liked the idea of three bedrooms and 1 1/2 bath. The kitchen had no appliances, but a cozy breakfast nook, and a good size living room featured a large picture window facing a sloping front yard.
Poverty is a worldwide issue many people suffer with, narrowing it down to 14.5% of citizens in America, or more than 45 million. People raised in these conditions struggle to pay for transportation, proper medical aid, food, and clothing; usually surviving on a few dollars a day for either themselves or a full family. These issues make living in poverty seem like an infinite curse that holds onto their unfortunate victims until old age, but with the effort and determination needed and combined, people can find their way out of the stereotype and into success. Ben Carson, a now well-known neurosurgeon, makes his success almost dream-like; going from being raised in poverty and by a single mother, to becoming the first doctor to ever perform

He consumed me, had been for years. Just couldn’t seem to get enough. You see, Anton Walker was a brilliant mind, a true virtuoso of his craft. But the artistry of his crime was unfortunately only painted with one colour, gold with his obsession of greed, of me. Ever since a young age Anton had been silver-tongued, he would talk his way out of trouble, and into the hearts of the wealthy. By 1983, Anton was an underground millionaire, basking in his immoral fortunes. He was living a selfish man’s dream, drinking champagne, smoking Cubans and driving fast cars. But that wasn’t enough to fuel Anton’s compulsion; he was a slave to the dollar.
Born in Stortford, England in 1853, Cecil Rhodes was one of nine sons born to the parish priest (notablebiographies.com). Although his brothers all went away to boarding school, Cecil had to stay behind and attend local school due to health related issues. When he was just 16 years old, Cecil was sent away to work on a cotton farm in South Africa. On the cotton farm, he worked with his brother Herbert in a very harsh environment. It didn’t take long for them both to realize there was more to life than picking cotton. By 1871, “diamond fever” took over this area of England. Both brothers entered an even harsher environment when they traveled and settled near the Kimberley diamond field in South Africa.
