After experiencing this my perspective towards my family didn’t change drastically, but before there was no sense of pride, which could be because I was younger and didn’t understand. Now I see all the obstacles my family and I have had to overcome and it makes me feel proud that regardless of what the obstacle was they were able to make it this far. My goals and accomplishments are not just mine; they are my families as well. Taking this into consideration I’m not upset that they didn’t tell me. In-fact I appreciate them helping me cope and pursue everything that I was told I was limited to.

I miss you everyday. The thought of you not being here with us any more hurts me more than I can say. However, I know that you are at peace now with family that have pass on prior.

I am not going to say goodbye so until we see each other
As a teenager moving to a new country with a different culture, different language, and being thousands of miles away from everyone I grew up with was not an easy change, however, that was precisely what I did in January of 2013 when I came to the United States with my father. My whole world changed since, and shaped my way of thinking. From learning English, adjusting to a new culture, experiencing my first snow and finding my way in my new country, my life has been an exciting adventure. My parents brought me to America almost 5 years ago to have a better life, and to get a better education. When I first got here, I did not know how to speak, read or write English.
When there is a new opportunity, you try to ignore it, but wind up exploring it to no extent. This is my story if moving from Lake in the Hills, Illinois, to Desoto, Missouri.

My relationship with my mother, for example, has deepened and become more solid than it was during my teenage years. I have a few close friends that I regularly talk to. However, this is something where I think I am lacking. Moving around the globe was not helpful in maintaining friendships and can be isolating at times. It is something I am still trying to figure out, but am positive about, as I think I am open to forming new friendships that could possibly develop to intimate and meaningful friendships in the
It changed my life and I feel it made me a better person. I now realize that changing schools was probably one of the best things that had happened to me and I can see the difference between the two environments I lived. While I loved the school as well as the people I grew up with but I noticed I was not open to very much at the time. Everyone who I had gone to school with were of the same ethnicity. When I began school in American Canyon, I felt it was extremely multicultural.

He discusses the Cosmopolitans as similar to a group of peacemakers who strive not to change another 's beliefs but to understand and accepts one for who they are. This is an important concept in friendships and other relationships but specially for my friendship with my best friend Sam.

14 years have passed since I took my first steps into kindergarten. Back then, everything was all fun and games. Who would have known that time would fly as fast as the speed of light. In a blink of an eye, here I am now, writing an essay for my college application. Different ideas and thoughts popped up in my head, including the cliche introduction that I presented.
The response that I was thinking in my head didn’t really come true. Instead, I was really showered by love, understanding, and a little of adjustments here and there. But people were still accepting of me which I was surprised from where I was raised because almost anyone who was different would have ridiculed. So, the life lesson was to be not afraid of what people think about
As I go through this assessment, it has shown about two way friendship. I am friendly person so I can make friend easily. The other thing that I notice in this assessment is how better I become friends with most of the people. Friendships with people that I have known for a long time can have a big impact on my life. I always say sorry when I do something wrong and I tend to forgive my friends when he or she does something wrong to me.
I understand this more after reading my LPI 360 assessment. Although, the feedback was mostly positive I have identified ways to become a better more valuable leader. In the numbers portion I received pretty low scores in finding ways to celebrate accomplishments and overtly praising subordinates for their hard work. This resonated with me because I have felt unappreciated before and I d o not want my subordinates to think what they are doing is not important or appreciated. Other tools I will use to try different leadership approaches will include the DiSC and MBTI survey.
Not only learning new things but I also met someone new as well. Besides meeting new people and learning new things, my reaction was not what I thought it would be. The reaction I had was very humble and grateful that I was able to not only interview someone from another culture, but for them to enjoy it as much as I did. The fact that my interviewee left with a smile on his face because I was interest in what he had to say about his
I also used to disrespect my family, but now I respect my parents, and their wishes. I personally have become a better person because of FCCLA. I take my education seriously, because before I used to blow off my education. Through FCCLA I’ve gotten so much different opportunities, that I’d be lost if I wasn’t apart of FCCLA. Also FCCLA has brought me lifelong friendships, I’ve met other people from other states, and I still do keep in touch with them, it’s also an encouragement or something to look forward to if I do qualify for Nationals.
