It taught me that strength and perseverance can make a significant impact in life. I also learned that forgiveness and the ability to forgive is much more powerful than I ever realized. This novel sucked me into the story and its characters and took me on an emotional ride of highs and lows. Finally, it forced me to reevaluate my previous judgement of the homeless.
People are influenced by the ones around them; these people can have positive or negative influences. Mentors are role models for you look up to and learn from. The only way for mentors to have a positive influence is if they are heard. Listening is the key. In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee creates mentors for Scout to show listening to the advice of those before you can lead to strong morals and an understanding of others.
If you see someone struggling with something just try to help out. Also try to be kind to others because you don’t know what they are going through. What I liked about the book is when Papa came to Francisco graduation. The part of the book that i didn’t like is when Papa didn’t go to most of Francisco’s graduation’s.
In high school, I had this role model, and he was my athletic director. The man would do anything for not just me, but the entire athletic department and all the moving parts. For example, at a tennis tournament on the weekend, I was a site by myself competing in that division held at that site. My tennis coach was at another high school with other teammates. He told me I would be the last one picked up for the night, and I already lost, so to hear that was incredibly disappointing.
In Catcher in the Rye and “Good Will Hunting” the protagonists both have mentors that help them in varying degrees. Will’s mentor Sean really connects with him unlike Dr. Lambeau who doesn’t connect and pushes Will away. Holden’s mentor Mr. Antolini really helps him but Old Spencer is just ignored by Holden. Good mentors really help young teenagers deal with problems and get ready for life but bad ones can sometimes make the problem even
I am a firm believer that strong leaders can either make or break an athlete’s career. Talented mentors have the rare ability to transform a stubborn and/or tired mind to one reborn with the hunger to continue. It is an amazing feat when thought about; how could one person make such a mammoth impact that he/she could completely change someone’s thoughts? Coaching cheerleading was one of the most demanding positions I have voluntarily placed myself into, not because I believed I lacked the expertise to effectively instruct, but because I placed pressure on myself to do well; however, this was a different form of it.
As I read on about Ruth’s reaction to meeting her best friend again, my eyes started to get a little watery with tears of happiness. I was able to imagine their feelings of seeing a best friend after so long. They cried and hugged when they saw each other, I would do the same if I was one of them. They still keep in touch and remain close today after reuniting. This reunion made me happy because a bond that was once lost was found again.
“By making good choices, each and every one of you can accomplish anything in life and fulfill your dreams,” stated Coon. Coon also spoke about how he started writing to help students cope with the loss of friends and family at one of his schools, Edward Coon wrote a 12-page pamphlet titled “Lost Love.” “Lost Love” told a true and powerful story of a young girl’s life, including an inspirational message to help students cope with their loss. A few years later, Coon received an anonymous call from a man in Branson, Missouri, whose family benefited from the message within “Lost Love.”
Every word of this work sent chills down my spine, I could not speak, all I could do was cry. This novel changed me in a way no other work has ever done. It made me realize that the life I live, I take for granted. Every day I am able to wake up to a roof over my head without the fear of being ripped away from my home. Whenever I feel ungrateful, I look back at this book and pray.
The novelist has made this book meaningful but also something that gives the readers a good laugh with its witty comments, embarrassing moments and humorous characters. “But mostly I’d like to thank everyone who didn 't show up for the meeting. I love you guys – I really couldn 't have done it without you, Thank you……. Thank you…….. Thank you’, and with that Razza slumped on his desk, seemingly overcome with emotions”.
After a while of gruesome writing I had finished my essay, The Outsiders. I had Soda and Darry read it and they both thoroughly enjoyed it. Soda said that it captured the essence of each moment perfectly and Darry said that it made him relive the experience. (Even though that might not be the best thing) It 's been almost 2 weeks since the death of Johnny and Dally.
When you mentor, fall short and get back up, it is all a part of your legacy. See all those actions, which are knowable and unknowingly watched, become a part of every individual that cross your path. A legacy passed down through generation after generations. Your legacy move from individual
Mentees should be comfortable being vulnerable around their mentors and should expect genuine responses from them. One of the most significant qualities a peer mentor should have is ambition. Students are often more inspired by other students who are driven and who have some degree of knowledge as to what they want to do in their future rather than not. These qualities will allow the peer mentors and mentees to build a strong relationship, encouraging success all around. Consider the challenges or barriers to success a STEM student might face.
