This was very different to me because my past schools’ I was always the “new kid” that was not wanted around much, so having to be the center of attention in the new place with everybody wanting to know me and introduce me around was very pleasing and I never wanted it to end. But the thing is I was not the only new student to join, there was another student that was with me that did not get the same treatment that I was getting. At first I thought it was because he was alone and did not talk much. However, it turned to be because I was so overwhelmed by all this friendliness that everybody forgot about him. I could have gone to him and introduced him to everybody
Thus, he was moved to continually write in his journal; to jot down any new concept, idea, or way of thinking that could ultimately improve the lives of neglected or abused children. These are his findings. Bruce Perry was, at first, just as ignorant as the rest of his coworkers to the needs of developing children. The was a popular phrase among the adults of that era, “children are resilient.” Perry had always found this statement to be unnerving; he believed that there was evidence to support the fact that, while PTSD was now being recognised as a common ailment among adults, it could not be attributed to children with the same high levels of stress.
He has shown me how to approach the world of being an musician just by doing it. Johnny Cash is my role model because I look up to him and try to record songs, and perform like him .He always had something good to say, even when he was mad at the world. He has always been my favorite singer and always will be. I do not know how I would play guitar without his music.
When I first moved to this country I was two years old and clueless of my surroundings. However, as I grew up I became more observant of those who surrounded me, and more importantly, the differences between me and others. My first reaction was always to be ashamed or sad that I was the outcast, unable to relate to certain

Scout, being a student and a child who is very inquisitive, notices how the school isn’t all that she thought it would be. Scout and many other children were thrilled when they discovered that they were eligible to attend school. Once they had arrived their thoughts had changed, and were discouraged to continue returning to school ( ). The reason being that they quickly noted that school is very narrow minded. The school has a specific structure and isn’t open to new ideas.
They require many changes and new rules. Students don't enjoy their loss of privilege, which can lead to rebellion against the uniforms or even the school's supervisors. When I was in elementary, my school had uniforms. I was a brand new student, not looking forward to wearing a navy, red, or white polo shirt every day. My very first week there, I got in trouble for wearing a slight maroon shirt instead of bright red.
Imagine you are a parent taking your child 's first day of school. Your child is so excited to learn and to meet new friends. But in reality that 's not the case at all, the school looks nice, in actuality it can 't afford books, great food, clean water or even enough desks.

Throughout life I have experienced many ups and downs on the quest of finding true joy in the world. Gambling acceptance and overall happiness in an attempt to keep my morals and personality fully intact. From a young age, an acute sense of right and wrong enveloped within my conscience, leading to a far greater understanding (of right versus wrong) than most. As time has gone on and the majority my peers developed immoral habits, schoollife ripened into a state of near constant distress. A refusal to conform to the “norm” led to constant bullying and unrelentless mistreatment from many of my classmates from the beginning of middle school--plaguing my heart and mind.
The DREAM Team brings a community of undocumented students together. By showing other them that they were not alone, other DREAMers were able to come out about his/her status. I had never being part of a club before, and after attending their meetings I regretted not knowing about the DREAM Team before. Being able to sympathize with one another made me have a feeling of belonging. I also saw them working closely with one another to gain support and raise awareness on immigrant reforms that affect thousands of undocumented students.

For an eight year old girl to fly by herself from Africa to America was a little scary especially when she's traveling by herself for the first time. I remember the day I first enter the USA.
