Even as a young child, I knew I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to interact with people on a daily basis. This deep-rooted love for others originated from the values instilled in me as a child; values of loyalty, dedication, and compassion. Throughout my undergraduate career, I have discovered what is truly important in life and the impact I want to make in my community. I have found I have a strong desire to serve others, to help them and to make a tangible difference in their lives. Over the past four years, I have had the opportunity to serve those in need in my community. Each year, I am involved in numerous service projects that bring food and clothing to low income families, as well as assist in the rebuilding and restoring of homes. Each Thanksgiving, I help collect food, organize donations, and distribute Thanksgiving meals to families who, otherwise, would go without. These service opportunities have taught me how to connect with individuals on a personal level, regardless of our differences in life experiences. I have learned the importance of service, human interaction, and most importantly, listening. My compassion for others, servant attitude, and ability to communicate with individuals from diverse backgrounds will help me to succeed in graduate school, as well as allow me to become an exceptional
Throughout my high school career, I have been involved in different professional societies such as the National Society of High School Scholars, Mu Alpha Theta (Math honors society), and Business Professionals of America. My involvement in these societies has made me knowledgeable in the logistics of how to run the society, and have taught me valuable skills such as leadership and collaboration. For logistics, I can help organize events such as fundraising activities or philanthropic events as I am currently on the social committee for Business Professionals of America, which is in charge of organizing social events for my chapter. As an elected member for the social committee, my chapter has shown faith in me for my leadership skills and collaboration skills. Overall, I feel like I can contribute a lot of my skills and knowledge to UIC honors college.
n every society around the world, individuals have values that are important to them, whether they be cultural or otherwise. Some of them may include determination, creativity, honesty, loyalty, and wisdom; these can have a considerable effect on one’s everyday life and the choices that they make. Similarly, Jean Valjean and Fantine have values that affect the decisions that they make. In Les Miserables, Victor Hugo uses various conflicts and characters to demonstrate the importance of religion, compassion, and love in one’s life.
Values relate to our personal principles, morals, and ideals—that is, what we consider to be important.Each person is unique, with their own personal values and beliefs shaped by a number of factors that include culture, religion, and personal experiences.We value each person as an individual, respect their aspirations and commitments in life, and seek to understand their priorities, needs, abilities and limits.
Another leadership story type that Simmons discusses is the “Values-in-Action” story, which brings values to life by respectfully “instilling [them] in a way that keeps people thinking for themselves” (20). Leslie asks the schoolchildren to imagine what it must have been like to be raised in an Indian residential school, stating that the children are “the next generation who will walk forward with values and ideals that will change our world and make it a better place” (Project Heart). The adults who participated in the ceremony (in addition to those who view it through film) must also face the same question, as well as face their individual and collective values as demonstrated by their response to her poignant inquiry. That is to say, if adults see children acting according to a certain ethical standard, the adults are also likely to choose to follow with their own ethical actions.
This family comes together in a time when they all need it. Phillip at one point tells Judd he’s on his side and has his back no what the situation is. Then every time Judd and Wendy meet on the roof to talk they are creating a turning point during a bad time. It can be see that each brother, sister, brother, brother, and/or mother, child moment is a growing point where something/someone else is thinking and acting different. The Altman family displays resilience by walking away at the end and assuring each other that they have their backs.
I want to play a role of a learner and as an activist. I want to learn about everyone’s culture and understand how that plays into the current world. I want to be aware of any problems my classmates face because of who they are and if there is a way I can help them. I have organized fundraisers through GSA and for the 3 other clubs
Robin Williams is a Sociologist that identified certain values he felt all Americans have, the one I’m focusing on is Activity and Work. This value mainly prefers action over inaction where regular work is a goal. Activity and Work is based on merit and not favoritism, while all people have the opportunity to perform at their best. The signs of virtue for Activity and Work are discipline, dedication, and hard work.
Everybody has a different set of values. The Logan family and The Wallace family have different set of values throughout the book.. The Logan family demonstrates positive values as they face challenges. They value, family ,pride, learning and courage. The Wallaces values seem to be focused around negative things. They value the fact that they are wealthier than others, and feel they are better and more powerful because they are “white”
The values show cased on that eventful day are simple, yet difficult to uphold. Preparation and diligence are simple philosophies to understand but difficult to implement in everyday life. Of course there are the values of saving lives and always being ready to act when called. However, in my personal and academic
Values are intangible things that are important to us, and that guide us, individually, to make decisions. Each person has a different set of values, morals, and ethics, which is the reason that each person handles a situation differently. Here, I will discuss my top 5 values, and why they are important to me.
Values are individual beliefs that drive people to do things or act in different ways. Generally, people are inclined to adopt the values they were raised up in, either by society, the culture or history. Conflicts arise when people have different values, leading to a dispute of concerns. The comparative study of the texts ‘Lincoln’ by Steven Spielberg and ‘The Year of Living Dangerously’ by Christopher Koch, has enhanced my understanding of the texts’ explored values. These values include ambition, ethics and leadership, and they, to a large extent, enhanced my knowledge as the texts offer different perspectives into different values.
Furthermore, there are two other segments from the film that I also found particularly relevant to the concept of values. In the first segment (S3), before the Coke bottle drops from the sky, the Bushmen shared everything equally and with respect. When the bottle dropped from the sky, they thought
What shapes an individual’s values? Many people believe that a person’s values are shaped by their life experiences. This can clearly be seen in the characters from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and “A Celebration Grandfathers.” by Rudolfo Anaya. In Little Women ,the March sisters value their family the most. They also value kindness and selflessness. In “A Celebration of Grandfathers,” Rudolfo Anaya also values family and displays kindness and respect towards his grandfather and other elderly people. Both stories demonstrate what people often say about values, one learns what one lives.
Values; values are beliefs that are important and guide your life. During the ages 11 to 12 years of age my values just began to be shaped. I lived in a rural small town full of farmland known as Union Bridge, Maryland and attended Northwest Middle School. People of Union Bridge are farmers, mechanics or small business owners. But my personal home life could be understood as unlikely or unique. Before even entering the world, my mother was addicted to drugs and my father was incarcerated, but as time went on and I grew older, things became worse. My mother died at the age of twenty-nine because drugs grabbed ahold of her and she could not let go, leaving me to be fought over in the court system by both sets of grandparents until I was eleven years old, where I finally resided with my maternal grandparents. My home life during this time influenced me to be shaped by artists like Eminem and Bruno Mars because the message behind their top
