One main event that occurs in the first third of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest is the first group meeting Mr. McMurphy joined on the ward. Nurse Ratched begins to talk about another patient named Harding, and his issues with his wife. After listening to what the nurse had to say, McMurphy made an inappropriate joke concerning the matter of Harding’s wife. Everyone was amused with his joke, except for Nurse Ratched. She retaliates by reading Mr. McMurphy’s file out loud for everyone to hear. This was the first time as a reader I got to hear about McMurphy’s history and why he was put on the ward. She reads how Mr. McMurphy is 35, never married, was dishonorably discharged from war in Korea, has a prolonged history of street
“I don’t see anything uncommon in it,” states Alex Lin a former teen activist. Teen activists, who are they, what do they stand for ,and what does it take to become one? Teen activists make a big difference in this world, they devote time and energy to helping others a they don’t let challenges get in their way ,they stand up for what they believe in, and they encourage others to do so. All it takes to become one is lots of determination and a voice and the bravery to stand up!
What is a teen activist? A teen activist is someone who inspires people to do good in the world. They take a little cause and make it known worldwide. I believe that if we have teen activists in the world, people will want to do good things to help them. If that is true teen activists could make our world a better place. The three teen activists who inspire me the most are Malala Yousafzai, Faye Carey, and Emily Rigel.
There are many Teen activists in the world. And they all have a lot in common and a lot they do different. All teen activists have to speak out to spread the word of their claim. For example, Malala Yousafzai chose to go worldwide and got on youtube and tv interviews. Alex Lin however did not he didn’t have as big of a problem so he stayed local in his community and spread the word by mouth in his community. Faye Carey like Alex didn’t go as big as Malala but she did go on facebook and started a page to spread the word through social media.
There are many problems. Some are extreme, some are not as extreme. There are big problems that have led people to become activists, or people who want to do away with something, or establish something. These teen activists want many different or the same things, such as having a cleaner earth, better schools and some big things are bullying, civil rights, and environmental rights. Those are just a few. These activists try to do what is right with all they can, they volunteer their time and money to help others in need. The main theme of this is about teen activists who help with bullying.
They believed she posed a threat to them, and in return, this was a threat to Malala since they tried to harm her multiple times. One of their attempts, where they went onto her school bus, seriously hurt her. “‘Which one of you is Malala Yousafzai?" he demanded. No one spoke--some out of loyalty, others out of fear. But, unconsciously, their eyes turned to Malala. "That's the one," the gunman said, looking the 15-year-old girl in the face and pulling the trigger twice, shooting her in the head and neck (Taseer).” She was hospitalized for several weeks, where she was fitted with a titanium plate to repair damage to her skull, and she also got an implant to restore hearing. When interviewed after the situation, Malala said that she “has vowed to “rise again”, and continue her fight on behalf of Pakistani girls and against the brutality of the Taliban (Herizons).” This attack may have been heinous, but thankfully, she survived, and it only made her stronger.
Sometimes the world can seem like a dreadful place surrounded by brutal situations with no way out. Child labor, bullying, and world hunger are just some examples of those situations. These circumstances can lead to physical injury, social problems, emotional problems, and even death. Luckily, some teens around the world have decided to stand up for what they believe is right. They change the world by making things better for us. They care and try to change things to help us. They make this world a better environment. Such teens are called teen activists. Teen activists may become who they are because of some of their personal struggles or they might get inspired by others struggles. They persevere and fight for what they believe is right.
Malala was a teen activist. She became an activist at the age of 11 or 12. Malala demanded that girls have the right to education, not all people agreed with malala so she fought for the education of young women. While fighting for the rights of young women education like
All teen activists such as Alex Lin Malala and Iqbal work to help make a world a better place.That might take months or even years. We know that's a long time! Teen Activists also face challenges like,they cannot spread the word to others, they have many people stand in there way,and the reason activists do these things even though it puts there life at risk is because they want to help in ways they can. According to (Youth Activists Project), “nearly half of the world population is underage 18. Young adults between comprise 20% of the U.S population” That how many of us can make a difference in younger kids life and activists don’t even have to be teens they can be any age.
In the article Radical Youth Work: Becoming Visible by Skott-Myhre, we are introduced to the idea of otherness. Judging from what I understood otherness could be defined as the being out of the ordinary and different. Colonial times represented a very individualistic society. Kings ruled the empire; much like men (fathers) made the decisions for their family. The view points and opinions of both women and youth during these times were neglected and disregard. Unfortunately, in today’s day in age this discrepancy between the opinions of adults and youth is still very current. This understanding and practice of “otherness” takes away from the potential insights that adults and young people can achieve when working together. The media today places
How could one fifteen years old girl stand up to the Taliban and vanquish the with a pen instead of a sword? In "I am Malala", a memoir by Malala Yousafzai, she describes the struggle between girls right to an education and the Taliban. Malala is a girl who stood up for an education and was shot by Taliban when the Taliban took control of e Swat Valley, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. I am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person voice to inspire change in the world. According to Dr. Price-Mitchell's article "What is a Role Model?" a role model is how young people develop their skills, abilities, and motivation to become citizen. Dr. Price-Mitchell's identifies several qualities
Bold, brave, and fearless, are three words that usually come to mind when you hear the name Malala. Many people know Malala Yousafzai as “The girl who was shot by the Taliban”. However, she was much more than that. Malala Yousafzai changed the world by fighting for the importance of girls’ education. She stood up for her rights and everyone else's too. Shot by the Taliban, Malala continues to campaign about educational rights. She has left her legacy as “The woman who stood up for girls’ education”.
“I raise up my voice-not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard...we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” ― Malala Yousafzai. Malala was born on July 12, 1997, in Mingora, Pakistan, where girls were restricted from going to school, and therefore treated unfairly. Unlike anyone else, Malala was not afraid to speak out against the Taliban. Unfortunately, she was shot in the forehead on the way back from school on a bus. She was targeted because she spoke out on the right of girls education. Luckily, she survived and continued to globally speak out about the importance of education. Malala possess leadership, courage, and compassion which allows her to be an influential leader in world history.
The only seventeen-year-old Malala Yousafzai is very known for her bravery and her fight for the right of expression in her home country Pakistan, where human rights mostly are suppressed. She is concerned about equality, human rights, peace and the right for education and knowledge in her country but also all over the world. She started running a blog about suppression of human rights, violent attacks by the Taliban and how the Taliban are against education for women in 2009. Many people were able to read it because it has been broadcasted on a web side of BBC. Freedom of speech is a quite difficult topic in Pakistan and soon she became a target for the Taliban. She was injured by the Taliban and had to get treatment in a British hospital. She had international speeches and has won many prizes for human rights and equality (won the Nobel peace prize in 2014). The speech on education she had back in summer 2013 was for the UN General Assembly and it went viral. What she wanted to achieve is simply that she lays down the brutal facts and people of great power like the UN Assembly follows with resolutions and permanent changes. Her speech was interesting and very good build up by her use of the three theories of argumentation, which I will analyse throughout this essay.
Yousafzai first started to speak up for her rights when a mafti wanted her father’s school to close. The mafti had tried to close the school because the school allowed girls to go to school and because he considered it “a disgrace to the community”(Yousafzai 90) Malala Yousafzai was afraid that once she spoke out, she would be silenced by the Taliban just like how the mafti had tried to close her father’s school down. Even though Yousafzai was doubting herself, she continued to fight for
