First off I would like to congratulate everyone for making it this far. I would like to thank my classmates, my friends, and my family. I especially want to thank our teachers, for always supporting and encouraging us. If it weren’t for the people who support us daily, we would not be where we are today. I would like everyone to turn to their families, and teachers to thank them for all that they have done for us.
Could you imagine having your life set out for you and predetermined and birth, well that is exactly what Niccol, the director of this film visually exhibited. There is a robust fixation on the two terms valid and invalid. In the first seconds of your life, as soon as you take your first breath, you are defined and it is claimed that these characteristics are unalterable. This is the view that society has taken on to generate an idealistic and nearly unflawed society. “Your genetics are your resume” these words portray
Simply, I want to say thank you for all that you have done. For two years, I had the pleasure of being a student in your class, but more importantly I had the opportunity of getting to know you, both as a teacher and as a person. You and your classes fostered my self-awareness and knowledge. Everyday, I enjoyed going to your class and taking part in the daily discussions, where I learned of captivating stories, fierce opinions, and brilliant ideologies. Moreover, you introduced me to several awe-inspiring individuals, such as Paul Farmer, whom I continue to admire. Through your classes and under your influence, I gained a sense of direction for my life aspirations, as I now wish to follow a similar path to Farmer’s altruistic, yet innovative
Thank you for a great year! I wanted to let you know how much I sincerely appreciate everything you have done for me this year. You have constantly encouraged me to do my best and to believe in myself. Before this year, History was a class which I dreaded because I thought I was not good at it. After this year, I can confidently say that I have learned to really enjoy it. Your class has changed my outlook on History.

The weather was warm yet brisk at the same time as I walked from my grandparent’s new house to the car. As I attempted to squeeze into the backseat, it finally sunk in just how much stuff my sister thought she had to bring with her. I moronically asked her, “Why on earth would you possibly need all of this stuff?” All I got in return was a menacing glare from my sister Erin and a quick “STOP” from my mom. I thought to myself, “Just a few more hours and she’ll be gone forever, peace and quiet will finally be mine.” I could not have been more wrong.

In the movie My Sister’s Keeper Anna, one of the main characters, goes through struggles, hardships and pain because of the expectations of being a donor to her sister. Anna's parents made a decision to have another baby, Anna, to save her sister who has cancer. Anna feels angry because she was only born for one purpose; that purpose is to save her sister.

She and her mother struggle with love and belonging as they continue to battle about their disagreements. Amy feels unloved, not cherished or accepted by her mother. Everyone goes through pain, struggles and disagreements but
It brings to mind the role the “code of ethics” plays now that we have so much information that may seem to make life easier but can also pose challenges especially in the field of genetic testing and genetic counselling as mentioned by Kathleen Strassen Berger on pg 94 that even doctors do not fully understand genetics. The field still being relatively new and complex because of the variables involved in determining the nurture and nature effect. This ties in with how genetics influences human development but also brings about the plasticity of human beings especially when provided with the right amount of nurture like in the case of David. The advancement of technology and study of genetics evident in this video has helped change the norms of society through cognitive adaptation where accommodation is possible. i.e. old ideas are restructured to accommodate new experiences. For example in the textbook on p. 72, girls from India are shown demonstrating against the abortion of female fetuses. The preferences of male children over female babies had led to the accusation of women being responsible for the sex of the child but this video proves otherwise because of the XY chromosome present in males that determine the sex of the child. The advancement in genetics has made it possible for diseases and deformities to be controlled, explained and
Spoiled, Brat, Snitch, and Hypocrite are four words that described my twenty-year-old sister Jessica Bunn. Today, four years later I think of her in a completely different way. She has taught me so many things and helped shape me into the woman I am today. Even though we are thousands of miles apart we still share an inseparable bond. My sister has not always been a positive influence but she has matured into one of the best women I know. Over the next few minutes I will be talking about how mine and my sister’s relationship hasn’t always been great, but over the years she has become my best friend and for this reason my sister has and will forever influence my life in a positive way.
I read the book and watched the movie of "My Sister's Keeper. " This story is about a girl named Anna who has a sister with cancer, named Kate. Anna was born to donate body parts to Kate to keep her alive. Anna decides that she doesnt want to do it anymore so she gets a lawyer, named Campbell Alexander, to sue her parents to the rights to her own body. The book and the movie have many simularities to them.
Teachers thanks to believing in our talents, thanks to believing in our skills, Thanks for being always there supporting us, and thanks for telling us, that we can do everything we want to be. Even thou we are not from here and we speak a different language our teachers found the way to make us understand I know some of them sacrifice their time using google translate and searching for apps that we could use to improve our English . I don't have enough words to express my gratitude all I can say is May God bless all the ESOL teachers Thank you!
Imagine being born just so you can give up your cells and organs to your sister with Leukemia. That is the life of Anna Fitzgerald, and her sister Kate. The book I read is titled “My Sister's Keeper”, the title is the same for the movie. Personally, the movie was better for me because I like being able to see things visually and in detail. The way the book explained the characters I was really able to imagine them in my head and in the movie it wasn't so much easier to understand what was going on
