I was given one month to pack thirteen years of my life in a suitcase. Moving to the United States from Brazil has been a major landmark in my life. It was a phase defined by its drastic transition between to widely differing cultures. I was faced with the challenge of making different friends, and growing accustomed to a new educational system. This all became increasingly difficult when you take in to consideration my inability to communicate. Overcoming this obstacle was my biggest objective in ironing my complicated transition.
An academic subject that inspires me is pre-law, understanding the factors of life and the choices you make based off self interest is inspiring to understand how people's minds work depending on real life situations. I've always had an interest in understanding how the government is run. It's important to learn as an American citizen your rights to your laws. I will further my interest in college by studying more to have pre-law as my Major. Other opportunities that will benefit me in being universal in the area of law would include philosophy,social science, and Business throughout taking college courses. These majors all connect in the aspect in bettering a community or individual through some type of financial assistance. I intend using Pre-law outside of the classroom after I graduate throughout college
As a US Citizen we conform to regulate and maintain the foundation that connects us as a whole. The whole is made up of multiple people who share the same values, and is necessary in a long term successfully running society like the USA. But in times of change, we must stand out as individuals and refrain from the collective unit in order to redirect the long-term path of society. Time and time again displayed throughout history, men and women have departed from the collective whole in order to change their surroundings. Often it’s these type of individuals, such as Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King, and Bill Gates; who revolutionize the world they live in.
As I got older, the knowledge that my father negotiated with his very own employers in order to ensure that his coworkers would also reap the benefits the entire union fought for affected me on personal a level; to know that the man who drove me to school and bought for me school supplies each year also carried a responsibility to his co-workers made me rather proud. However, despite the fact that I grew up the daughter of a Union Steward, I also grew up as a teenager in today’s society: one that no longer suffers from such rampant corruption that induced misfortunes such as illegal instances of child labor: a calamity also solved by a committee aiming to better working standards. My view of labor has always been through rose-tinted glasses thanks to modern times; I really only knew of the exploits that my father had experienced from what he told me, forms recounting various union related news lying in heaps on the dinner table, and snippets on the news or the lightly-touched upon topics in my Consumer’s Education
Summary: Although I am an Englishman, I have taken a genuine interest in the labor policies of the US. I have served as president of the AFL (American Federation of Labor) which was comprised of different craft unions. Through peaceful protest, my goal has always been to achieve lower hours and higher wages. This has instigated collective bargaining and that, as well as written contracts, will be the way that employers make financial agreements with their employees. I have inspired the AFL to support World War I by avoiding strikes, raising wages and keeping up the morale of laborers.
The Legal Studies Academy is the right fit for me because of it’s focus on legal and ethical issues. I believe that this academy will prepare me best for post-secondary education and allow me to explore different law-related careers. I am very interested in the way that legal studies are infused into units in the core subjects. I would be very excited to be able to focus on these issues that I’m passionate about, across different subjects.
We struggled so much in America because as we gained our strength, workers showed greater willingness to strike. All at the same time, business owners were also stubbornly opposing our union demands, so as a result, the confrontations between unions and owners also greatly increased. Successes of our movements included fighting for better wages, reasonable working hours, and safer working conditions. Our labor union movements also led efforts to end child labor, and providing aid and health benefits to workers who were retired or injured.
I was born on September the 7th of 1994 in the San Francisco Bay area, not very far from Silicon Valley. The year I was born President Bill Clinton signed the North American Free Trade agreement with Mexico and Canada which helped to stimulate economic growth about twenty years ago. Living in California made my Dad the open-minded liberal that he is today, and because of his love for discussing politics I was raised listening to him have friendly debates with my very republican grandpa over every economic issue from climate change to healthcare. For about a year and a half after I was born my parents, older brother Daniel, golden retriever sandy, and I all lived in a classic colonial style home just south of Santa Clara Valley. My father was the breadwinner in our family working as an engineer for Portola Packaging. A job he was offered not long after graduation from a small private engineering school in upstate New York called Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. My mother also worked full time but as a loan underwriter. After being offered a great relocation package by Portola to the east coast my parents quickly decided to pack up our house and move to Pittsburg Pennsylvania. In addition to being closer to our extended families they also believed that raising a family in Pennsylvania was far
It is with great pleasure I submit my application for Law School. Currently, I am finishing my Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Mary in psychology and philosophy. I hope to continue my education to become a lawyer at the University of Mary. I believe I am an excellent candidate for your program based on my dedication to succeed and learn.
This forced me analyze my life thus far, to recognize my fears and what I hold dear. It’s only been sixteen (one month till seventeen) years in this carcass, but I already feel like an entire life has flown by. It was like a prerequisite of actually watching my life flash before my eyes. This project was nice to sit back and look at what a social mess I am (one of my most favorite pastimes). But also, only being sixteen, I don’t hold what many would believe to be true values, dreams, fears, and identity. Nevertheless, this is what I have so far.
As markets open up to global commerce, wages continue to improve and enhance standards of living around the world. Since United States firms are standard-bearers in labor practices when doing business globally and other countries have made a commitment to their people to protect their labor rights, it is only right that the American companies reapply efforts to “Make America Great
It’s conclusively the birth of inequality and the reduction in employment it’s a concern. In addition, workplaces are creating other complex issues for American families. Although, the rich American’s sustaining wealth, living a privileged life, the poor are at a poverty level striving to survive. Realizing the demands for jobs in the U.S. will provide opportunities the American families. Understanding the Americans object to jobs relocating to third world countries retaining employment in America will decrease the unemployment rate in the United States. However, it makes it impossible when there’s inadequacy of job when preserving employment or revenue to produce new jobs, because, jobs are outsourced to other countries. It’s problematic for
His Courage - Heavenly Father, I thank You for giving me courage in scary situations. Forgive me for every time I allowed fear to take charge leaving me worried and broken. It is written in Your word that Your spirit doesn’t make us timid but it gives us great power, love and self discipline. Father I ask that you will always give my husband courage to stand for what is right even when peer pressure to fit in with the crowd is a major temptation. Let him be set apart for Your glory. Let him not be afraid to do the right thing. But to be a man of valour and great courage. Help him to be an example for our children teaching them that courage produces great strength and integrity. Give me peace that I can feel safe knowing that his courage comes
The main reason why I wanted to study Law was the importance it takes in the world. Law builds civilization, protect fundamental rights and protect ideas and inventions through patenting. Anyone can defend his or her right through the legal system. Law can bind an agreement to allow an aircraft to fly from country A to country B. Law is continuously relevant in many context including banking, construction, sports, land, media, commerical, human rights etc. And this excites me more, as it is very broad and in my perspective not going to be repetitive or dull.
