My legacy can be remembered by a lot of people if I want it to. It all depends on how I put myself out there, and I want to be out there to be remembered. When people think about me, I want them to think positive thoughts. I would like to be thought of as a person who was very kind, funny, helpful, smart, and other good character traits like that. Having these personality traits can make my other classmates better at what they do in school. But, if I do something wrong, or incorrect if I leave a bad trail for for my classmates to follow that means that's how those people are going to remember me as. I know for a fact that is not how I want people to think about somewhere in the future or right know in the present.

And this is when it all started. Running

My legacy began when my family taught me to read. My mom and grandma took turns teaching me different letters and sounds out of an early reader. By the time I reached kindergarten, I read well enough to strengthen my skills on my own. My favorite author from kindergarten was Eric Carle. I brought home Brown Bear Brown Bear so many times that my mother told me I was not allowed to read it again.

Have you ever felt robbed of a childhood? At the age of six, I was placed into the DYFS system. I moved from house to house, not really having the chance to grow up like normal children.

My interviewee is a mother of twins who came from Vietnam. Her name is Tran Huang, who was originally born in Qui Nhon, Vietnam in 1976, then her family moved to the capital of Vietnam, Saigon, in 1978. On June 1986, my mother left Vietnam and emigrated to the United States in September of 1986. During my mother’s time in Vietnam, the Vietnam War had ended but the social hierarchy was collapsed and it had left the country in a state of caution. My mother was thirteen years old when she arrived in America. I chose my mother to be interviewed because she had risked her life escaping Vietnam during a time when there was a lot of turmoil in Southeast Asia. If she had not crossed the Pacific and enter into America, I would not be here today and
When I think of the word legacy I think of how I will be remember and what I will leave behind for generations to come. I think of people like Martin Luther King Jr and Gandhi, whose impact changes the lives of many and the world as it was known during that time. I don’t think that my impact will be received on such a big scale like Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi, and many other but hopefully I will be able to touch the people who were close to me during my lifetime.
From a young age, athletics were a very important part of my life and soccer was my passion. Whether it was playing on boy’s teams and summer leagues, or refereeing tournaments and coaching soccer camps, I was constantly trying to improve my game. When I came to college, I was excited to have the opportunity to continue playing soccer. Unfortunately, I received several concussions and I had some complications that ultimately forced me to stop playing soccer after my sophomore year. At first I was distraught, all of my personal goals were gone and I was no longer working with my teammates toward the goals we set together. However, I realized I needed to find new interests and new objectives to work towards during the rest of my time in college.
My first short-term SMART goal will be to draft boiler plate contracts for my team and clients by January 1st, 2017. This is specific in that I know who these contracts are for. One will be a contract for people working for me. It will clearly define the split we receive from any clients, as well as clearly articulate a non-compete policy that will protect my business from workers who want to steal clients. The second contract will be for parents who want regular work done for their families. I will benefit from the increased security these contracts provide, and the families will benefit from a discounted price, as well as guaranteed service during busy seasons. This goal is measurable in that it can be 0% complete, with no contracts written, 50% complete with one contract written, or 100% complete with both contracts written. This goal is achievable because two months is a reasonable amount of time to write two contracts. It is relevant because it addresses certain business needs that have been overlooked in the course of me wearing multiple business hats. It is time bound because I have set a short term date, and intend to stick to it.
My Resume doesn’t stray from the classic style of resumes to much at least not the first two portions of the resume. Once we get to the bottom of my resume I split my skills into two columns so I could use as much space as possible to define me as a hard working with plenty of experience in design, writing, and communication specifically.

The author has written an outstanding piece of work that forces you to consider researching your own family history.
