Ever since I was a young child, my parents always told me to try my best in school, they always told me this for the reason that they never had the opportunity to have a good job because they never finished school. This event is shaping me to care a lot regarding my education. In addition to that, another event that has shaped me to become the person I am today is that since my parents don’t have good paying jobs they have to work hard to take care of me and my siblings this event has caused me to become a hard working person and to seize all opportunities to live a good life because I don’t want to struggle like my parents.
One of my biggest accomplishments was to be able to attend college. As a first generation low income student who immigrated to the United States, I have struggled to maintain my education as a free resource for my future. Never would I have thought that my life would change so drastically for the better of me and my family. Without my loving, supportive and caring parents, I do not think that I would be where I am right now. As an only child, my parents have always been there for me. They have sacrificed so much to give me a better education and that means a lot for me, therefore I want to give back to them more than they gave me. I have seen my dad struggled in his job and I have experienced the hardships of working in his job myself. Working
My international background has shaped who I am today because of the influence of my Chinese immigrant parents. My parents never had an easy life. My parents, who lived in poverty in China, immigrated to the United States hoping for a better life and to pursue the American Dream. They
My parent have alway said to me, never to give up on what I'm trying to accomplish or the goal that I'm trying to reach even though if it seems impossible. That they will alway support me on anything that I want to do, maybe not financially wise because they will help the best they can. My whole life things were never just handed to me, I worked for them and some people tell me that my parents should do more for me that I shouldn't have to work so hard because I'm just 17 years old that I'll have the rest of my life to work, but I think differently because it made me realize life isn't just fun and games, it helped me mature faster then most kids, it also gave me life skills that will help me out in college and life after college.
My dad works in maintenance in a textile factory while my Mother work in a Restaurant to support our family. Blessed by my parent unwavering support, it would have been more difficult to get as far in school as I have, their hard work inspires me to becoming a
I am grateful for God who blessed me with a wonderful family that are willing to go drastic measures for me to experience lifetime opportunities. My experience of a lifetime opportunity was when I traveled out of the country for the very first time with an educational program called People to People Student Ambassadors Program. This program allowed me to travel with high school students from four different states to Greece, Italy, and Sicily for 19 days. My family and I did everything that we could do to raise money for this trip, but God always make a way and for that I'm immensely
Jet Paronable NHS application My parents have worked and sacrificed countless of hours so that I may receive an education and several of opportunities they were never given the chance to reach in their high school careers. Also like my parents who have done so much for me, my God has blessed me with a healthy body and several of talents. I'm so honored and privileged to have received so much blessings from the people who mean the most to me, it is as if that saying "thank you" isn't enough to repay their love for me. With these blessings and talents I will bring honor to my God and my parents by using their given gifts to be the best person I can be by demonstrating positive character, active levels of leadership in daily behavior,
My mom came from a poor family. Her family didn’t have a lot of money. She was the oldest of five kids. Her mom had to work a lot to provide for all of them. Her mom kicked her out when she was 13. She’s been on her own ever since. She didn’t have any money or a job. She had to stay with a friend. So, she finally found a job when she was 15 and she has been working ever since.
How we view an individual makes a huge difference in life because people tend to judge without any knowledge, which will lead to regret in the future, therefore; making judgments towards a person, based on their actions or feelings is perverse.
I got a job. I got two, well a couple more than two depending on how you want to look at it. I figured with money comes power; and it did. I devoted my entire life to work. Working at the restaurant, working at the store, working at the new store, teaching the kids, working in school, working in athletics. I did everything I could to make more and more.
Identity is like a fingerprint. It is unique to the individual. That identity is a collection of the people that person has met and the experiences they have been through. In what way they express themselves can have an effect on who they meet and what choices they make in
Judging someone by their cover seems like something we would never do. Yet, we seem to do it without a care. In fact, in the book To Kill a Mockingbird; there are many characters that without knowing actually made judgement. There are many judgements drawn towards the main character Boo Radley, and Tom Robinson. They judge Boo on the way he lives.
My parents always encouraged my siblings and I that we were capable of doing anything that we set our minds to. It didn’t matter where or what we wanted to do; all that mattered was if we had the passion to do it and succeed. From that, I was always set on becoming a doctor. It didn’t matter what kind; I just knew I wanted to help people. From a young age, I knew that my parents worked hard so that my siblings and I might have a better life than my parents. Both of my parents came from Vietnam with little to nothing. They both got jobs at Excel before they were twenty, and, after ten years, they met each other and got married. They and bought a motel and restaurant, and managed that for another ten years. They were
My parents grew up in families with little parental direction. Attending school, overcoming adversity, getting a job and becoming successful were up to their own making. Although my parents did not go to college, they took advantage of other opportunities to better their lives so that my siblings and I would be able to attend universities. They worked hard to get jobs even without college degrees, and then worked harder to maintain those jobs; subsequently, this furthered their positions in their workplaces. By setting an example of making the most of what life has to offer, they influenced me to seize every opportunity that crosses my path. Going to college was not an opportunity my parents could take advantage of, but it is one that I can.
One example of common error in judgment is snap judgments (decisions made before all necessary information or facts are gathered. Often people attempt to solve a problem before it is even determined exactly what the problem is). I have had this experience in the past when my sister told me that my mother was taking all her kids and family on a cruise and I got really excited and bought everything I needed for the trip just to find out that my mother had not said that.
