The confidence in speaking in a courtroom that I have gained from volunteering has given me a new outlook on my future. Before volunteering, I never would have thought my dream would be to become an attorney and argue in front of a court. However, the Independence Youth Court has inspired me to go to law school and follow this dream that I once thought was impossible. I truly have a passion for the judicial system and the Independence Youth Court has guided me through the discovery of this passion and through finding the confidence to know it is possible.
”(Kelly) Teachers that were living in these neighborhoods, such as Roseland, went on strike feuding against Mayor Emanuel, fighting for their schools and it would seemed utmost important to include the majority of this in the documentary.

Chicago had also a large murder rate that was too large to ignore.
The Cincinnati Race Riots has been starting in the late 1800’s which the author believes it is still occurring in today’s world. Police Brutality is one of the main reasons for rioting and fighting.

On the run, a case study of fugitive life in an American city was published on April 2015. It 's a story about Alice 's experience in Philadelphia, over a six year time period observing a group of African American young men that were entangled with the law in a negative manner. Alice introduces us to Mike, Reggie, Chuck, and others who feared incarceration, being left alone, and injustice. She allows us to vividly see the nights she spent talking to these boys and their families on the stoop of their house, graphically picturing the police officers knocking down the doors of their household in search for one of them, and the devastation it brought to many families. This book became a guideline for fugitive on the run, a shock to those not exposked to this way of living, and an eye opener to all including the police force
There have been numerous protests in Chicago right now about police brutality. After what happened last year with the police just randomly shooting fired with Michael Brown, Laquan McDonald, and many more, this got people angry and started to protest more heavily on the streets. What happened recently in Dallas, people were so furious with the police department that they stepped onto the Dan Ryan highway. If people have to go that extreme to send a message, the City of Chicago is doing something wrong. We can change this by police being more peaceful and not so forceful if the victim didn’t do or say anything yet.

Please accept my resume to showcase my interest in the position of Resident Assistant. I believe that I am an excellent candidate due to my leadership ability, my academic achievement, and my overall attitude. I am a firm believer in academia being the top priority while in college and I have proven this attitude through my performance over the past semester. As a Political Science and International Business double major at Monmouth College, who is on the Pre-Law track, I aspire to work in politics one day as a Political Campaign Manager. My academic attitude, I believe, is important for a Resident Assistant to hold because as a RA, one should be a role model for the other members of the hall.
I want to be part of the National Honors Society because I want to be part of a group of intelligent young adults that take pride in the service and leadership roles that I also am very proud of. Additionally, I have worked really hard to maintain my academic standings with my extremely busy schedule, and it would be really nice to be recognized for it. At the same time, it would be really nice to be recognized not only for my academic achievement but for what I have done in my community. I believe that if I was part of National Honors Society, it would promote me to work really hard inside and outside of school. I believe that being in a society such as this, it will motivate me to continue to do service projects outside of school and give
Through this involvement, I became highly interested in the recruitment process. For me recruitment was always a lot like doing ethnographic research which is the reason why I enjoyed both being a DePaul Ambassador and partaking in sorority recruitment. What I also enjoy about recruitment is the need for the attention to detail. Through my involvement in college I learned that I was able to successfully working in groups, as well as, on my own and honed in on my leadership abilities, as well as, gaining excellent conflict resolution skills and communication skills.
Attending Stetson University School of Law will enhance and expand my knowledge, it will expose me to a new chapter in life and broaden my intellect. I look forward to defying the odds once again and reminding my family and those around me that anything worth having is worth fighting for. In the words of the late Nelson Mandela “After climbing a hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb”. I look forward to climbing those hills at Stetson University College of
I am the employee that is the first to arrive to work and last to leave, the student who picks up the slack when other group members don’t hold up their end of the assignment, the friend that is always there when you call on them, and the mentor that will do anything to ensure my mentee is always at his/her best. Reflecting all of these attributes is my only weakness; always going above and beyond without reward although it may go unnoticed and sometimes can be exhausting. It is a passion of mine to extend a helping hand to others and watch others grow to reach their full potential as I have. Hopefully, I will be that Residential Assistant that residents feel that they can call on whether I am on or off the clock. In terms of strengths, I will examine two strengths outside of the cliché hardworking, critical thinking, and professional strengths commonly named.

I believe that I possess all the these four qualities and should become a member of National Honor Society. Leadership is when someone has a positive influence on people and brings out the best in them. I am a leader of the junior class student body as being a member of student council.
“Coop, you’re up.” Championship game. This isn't the third period or overtime, shootout. Three people from each team get their chance at a breakaway, one on one against the goalie, and I was chosen. I had the tournament on my stick.
