Stargirl came into the school welcoming to her new community. Her niceness was surprising to the other students. “In the hallways, she said hello to perfect strangers. The seniors couldn’t believe it. They had never seen a tenth-grader so bold.” (Spinelli 10). Her boldness was also demonstrated by her participation in class where she made up songs, asked questions that were different than the subject matter being taught, sang happy birthday to people in the lunchroom and veering off track on the cross country team. “We did not know what to make of her. In our minds we tried to pin her a corkboard like a butterfly, but the pin merely went through and away she flew.” (Spinelli 15). The activity in which Stargirl began to showcase her personality was cheerleading. What started out as a joke to the community with her crazy dancing and cheers led to Stargirl becoming a cheerleader for the football and basketball teams. “The change began around Thanksgiving. By December first, Stargirl Caraway had become the most popular girl in school. How did it happen? Was it the cheerleading?” (Spinelli 36). Up to this point, the students went from questioning Stargirl’s differences to accepting them in three months. Stargirl was quickly
She demonstrated her oral articulateness in the presentations she created and executed, both within class and in outside trainings. As a Youth Leadership Development complimentary major Hannah, along with a group of her peers, developed presentations and engaged different community groups by teaching youth interpersonal skills, such as how to assertively say no and disarming anger. As a member of this group Hannah has been proven to be a well disciplined, industrious student with a pleasant personality. She went well beyond the course requirements in the quantity and quality of her projects by attending and participating in all of the training meetings and being open and receptive to critiques of her presentations. Throughout the course, Hannah demonstrated great perseverance and initiative, volunteering whenever a role-play needed an extra helper or when another group member needed some assistance with a troublesome student. Not only was she interested in and motivated by the groups presentations, but she also put great work into creating presentations that will serve as an aid when she becomes a
Bryan is speaking at the Democratic National Convention. His purpose is to speak for all businessmen and not just the trader. He is there to create unity and no longer sit back and watch big business take away what is theirs.
Hannah remains a wonderful role model to her peers in all of her work ethic, kindheartedness, and her spiritual life. No one would be able to find one cruel bone in her body. Passionate about everything she does, she never gives up on anything. She is not swayed by the majority; she finds joy in being her own person. The following quote perfectly sums up Hannah’s outlook on life. “Do not compare yourself with others. It is our uniqueness that makes us who we are.” - Tina J.
Have you ever judged a person before knowing who they are, like how you judge a book by it’s cover? At first, I noticed Karlie and thought she was just a quiet classmate, but I later realized I was quick to judge. Karlie Medina came into the world on September 23, 2001 born in Pasadena, California. She has two sister and a brother and is considered the shy one in her family. Through discussion with Karlie, she showed me who she really was. a friendly gal who likes meeting new people. I found out that she is more of an introvert than an extrovert. While discussing about her friends, I noticed she is thoughtful person. Karlie puts her friend’s needs before herself. I realized I should not judge someone before I sit down and get to know who they are, just like how I found out Karlie is a friendly yet thoughtful person that also has a shy side.
Drugs, promiscuous sex, birth control, and total happiness are the core values of the World State in the novel Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. In today’s society things like drug use and reckless sex are often seen as taboo, but in World State, these activities are glorified and even considered normal. Aldous Huxley attempts to address to readers the harsh realities and cruel ways of our society in an exaggerated form. His purpose in doing so is to open the eyes of society to what the world might come to if things like technology and humanity get out of hand. In the World State, the motto that people are conditioned to live by is “Community, Identity, and Stability”, all three of which are ironically twisted to encourage members of the society

For confidentiality, I will use pseudonyms for the students I chose to profile. The first student I chose was Emma. When I began my field experience in February, Emma had just started third grade at Washington Elementary. She was from a well-educated family and was said to have been homeschooled. Emma was intriguing to me, because academically she was very behind and barely knew how to spell, use conventions and struggled to read and write. She was very sweet, but it was evident she was timid, which was probably due to being new as well as behind academically. The second student I chose is Connor. Connor was a very sweet student, but at times struggled in school. One of the main reasons why I chose Connor was because he reminded me of how my

. Even in today’s world social media plays a large part in pushing what success is when speaking about role models. The proper role models for youth are not deemed as successful and are not shown on social media or television. This makes it hard from day one for those who see something such as a positive example because it does not seem to be the most poplar way in school. Students in the earlier years are easier
