As a shy, reserved student, I found myself blossoming through the stage. I fell in love with the stage and auditioned for the middle school's play, A Christmas Carol. Fortunately, I was casted in the performance. I loved the experience so much that I auditioned for the next year's play
The American Dream The American Dream is a dream to live in a place where someone’s rights and freedoms can not be taken away from them and where they can achieve their goals without anyone stopping them no matter what their background is. People achieved the American dream through motivation and hard work. Although as time passed, they became too lazy to actually work for it. Somewhere along the way, people began to interpret the American dream as a dream to live in wealth. Because of this, it has made them think that happiness is defined by how much money they have. They also started to find ways to get rich quick without working for it. Many people question whether or not the American dream is attainable or too far fetched. The American
I saw my first Broadway show at only seven years old and have seen over ten more since then, due to the fact I live only two hours away from New York City by train. I always enjoyed theatre, but I didn’t grow the deep love I have for it now until acting became a career option. I spent a week of the summer completely in the business world of theatre and came out knowing I had to be an actress. I dived into all things Broadway, bought as many albums as I could, watched as many interviews as possible, saved up to see more shows, but even with all of this love for
The American Dream drew millions of immigrants from all the world for centuries and as a result, the U.S. is most diverse country in the world. In the past, these migrants were expected to leave their old cultures behind -- such as adopting new, more English-sounding last names -- and assimilate into this new American one. However, people today appear to more accepting of the diversity. Many of those who immigrate to America try to hold onto their heritage, creating subcultures in some areas (Macionis 48). This change is good. Being around people who have led very different lives from each other is a refreshing learning experience. It can open eyes to how the world works and how that the way that one person sees it is not the only way. A quick
The first professional show I ever saw was an Off-Broadway production of On the Twentieth Century, starring Kristin Chenoweth. I remember getting swept up and consumed by the music, the dancing, the romance, the comedy, the story, and walking out of the theater astonished by the idea that there are people that do that for a living, there are people that do theater for a career, not just for fun. That is part of the reason that I decided to pursue theater, for the thrill of adventure and I know that I am not going to be doing some boring-ass desk job, but in the future I will get to use the skills that I learn in college to get my degree, and apply these skills to a career that I am excited about. To me, theater means that I get to work with
How would one describe the American Dream? The American Dream is the dream of living a simple and fulfilling life. The world perceives the American Dream as something that is equally attainable to everyone, when in reality it is a source of false hope.
The American Dream is great, it gives every citizen of the United States the opportunity to achieve their dream. You are given the opportunity to make the most out of yourself and to show everyone your capabilities.
Ever since I was a child my parents instilled in me the idea that hard work resulted in a successful future. My parents had amazing jobs in Albania, they both graduated from college with the Albanian equivalent of a bachelor's degree, studied finances and accounting, and created good lives for themselves. Moving to America to provide their children with better educations resulted in their own educations not being valued, which consequently made it harder to get higher paying jobs. My father became a taxi driver to be able to watch his children while my mother went back to school. My parents have a combined income of about $47,000 a year. They have to take care of three children, themselves, and family overseas. Due to financial, health, and
She says, "I knew right then and there, things were gonna be different." And so it was. I joined drama at school, took dance classes, and started auditioning for shows, all in the name of a newfound love for musical theatre. I was driven by an unstoppable force of wanting to be apart of it, wanting to be able to create the same magic I saw on that stage for my own audiences too.
Many families around the world have dreamed about leaving their homelands to move to the American melting pot of the world. Father’s hope to move their families to a country where they are free to practice the religion they believe in and live in a society where they do not have to fear for their lives everyday. The American Dream is the idea of living in perfect harmony in a society with no worries. With hard work and American pride, the American Dream is not out of reach.
To me, the American dream would be nothing without motivation and making goals for yourself. Your opinion of an american dream could be the total opposite of what the person next to you thinks it means. The american dream is some kind of goal that drives you to succeed that goal. For example, my “American Dream” is making it big in the fashion and business industry. Because of this, I will be motivated to do my best in college and make goals along the way to get to the place I wanna be at. Back then, the american dream meat a family with a dog and kids with a nice red shiny car and white picket fence surrounding your house, but nowadays, the American dream can mean whatever you want it to be. The american dream is your own dream that you want
I think people do not have equal access because we come from different social standards. Some people may be rich and some people may be poor. I think that will all have to work for our dreams. I want to be a women's basketball coach in a few years, but I know I have to be involved in a program in anyway possible. So I'm trying to get an internship at College of Charleston. I know that getting a coaching job takes a few years, but I just want to keep working hard. Depending where somebody lives could also affect their dream. If someone lives in a crummy neighborhood and they do not have access to a place to achieve that dream then will not happen. If someone is born into a good social standard it easier for them to achieve their American dream.
As an American I believe in the “American Dream” that we used to have. How do I know it? I have lived it after my parents have come to the United States from Cuba. They worked hard and earned their fair share of the working class. My father was a bartender at a hotel and my mother was a maid, cashier, and a retail clerk. Ever since I was elected as to the United states senate in 2010, I always made certain precise goals to strive hard to achieve the “American Dream” we all used to live and I am sure that day is coming closer.
TITLE In seven years, my plan is to be achieving my American Dream. My now I will have graduated from Baker University, located in Baldwin City, Kansas.

My summer went a little like how every teenager in America’s summer goes. Avoiding sunlight at all costs and pressing the ‘next episode’ button on netflix. The exception of this is the most marvelous thing that comes after ice cream and books. Theatre camp. I can’t begin to describe how
