As a result of these funding we are able to provide the community with free programs about nature with age groups starting from toddlers to retirees. Informing children at a young age helps them appreciate and have a deeper respect for nature. The free programs, these local conservation centers, provide not only cater to male hunters, but females as well. I asked a coworker, Ashley, why she enjoyed hunting and she replied with a smile on her face, “Nothing like the empowerment you feel when you are bringing home dinner to your family” (Lovell). Hunting is becoming very popular with women, because it gives them confidence and respect knowing they can care for their family in a less conventional way.
For this reason, having family members at the hospital, toys, and friendly staff will always make the children in our society happy and confident during their visit. Family members who visit the hospital have impacted many children over the years. While I go around the rooms and write patients needs, I always write a note to myself if a child is alone. I keep my list handy, ask permission from my supervisor, gather activities, and visit each patient one by one in hope that I will put a smile on his or her face. Likewise, when a sibling of a patient is in the room I always encourage them to play as well.
I eagerly awaited bonding with the women and their young children. My visits to Pleasant Place reminded me of my ultimate goal— I want to use my voice to advocate for at risk families and children. The events that occurred one Saturday at Pleasant Place encouraged me in my mission to serve these women and others in similar situations. One of the mothers asked me to sit down and speak with her alone. The tone in this girl’s voice made me very uneasy.
I got my first job as a veterinarian assistant. It was my dream job. The love I had in my heart only grew, not only for the animals, but also for their owners. I wanted to help the animals to heal because they were their owner’s companion, friend, and child to the childless. I was a nurse in the animal world.
When my sister tore her ACL in elementary school, I was fascinated by the recovery program they used to restore her back to hea... ... middle of paper ... ...st who treats one of one of my clients. I help to guide the client at home in the same exercises the family was instructed to do, but with more knowledge of proper technique and goals for improvement. I have learned to use a more positive vocabulary, and I have discovered how much more empowering it is to change the phrase, “Could you,” to “You can.” Often this one vote of confidence can be the influential factor to spur someone on to improve. A wide range of life and career exploration experiences have resulted in my being strongly motivated to pursue a physical therapy career. Along the way, these experiences have played a part in making me a hard worker, a team player, a motivated learner, and in general, a positive person who enjoys working with and caring for people.
This portrays his love for animals, and how that love resulted in the acceptance of his parents who provided him with many pets. In addition, the author shares his wife’s loves for pets. Allan Poe says, “I married early, and was happy to find in my wife a disposition not uncongenial with my own. Observing my partiality for domestic pets, she lost no opportunity of procuring those of the most agreeable kind. We had birds, gold-fish, a fine dog, rabbits, a small monkey, and a cat.” However, after the narrator gets married and time passes, his addiction to liquor develops a drastic transformation to his personality.
Importance of Family and Friendship The effects of loneliness and friendship affect you and probably everyone around you in everyday life. In Barbara Kingsolver's book The Bean Trees, she uses the characters to represent everyday feelings, struggles, and success. This book shares the story of struggle, hardships, loneliness, friendship, and growth between the characters and how they come to know each other and grow closer throughout the book. Taylor, Lou Anne, and Turtle rely on each other for their friendship and feeling of family, so that they are emotionally strong, and can strive like the bean trees that rely on the riboza bugs to protect them. Turtle at the beginning of the book is just a young girl whose mother has died.
I prefer to work alone to focus on the task at hand. I have a special love for animals. There are millions of people who fall in love with animals; however, these same people may not be okay with putting pets to sleep, giving them injections, or causing pain in order to clean a wound. I love pets and animals but more importantly I care deeply about their wellbeing. I am mostly interested in outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, working out, spending time with my cat and dog, and being crafty around my house.
Now, after every school vacation, when other children return to classes bragging about the new toys they have, our children brag about the neat animals they saw, the pretty flowers they picked, or how cool it was to jump in the lake. Parents need to be a constant part of their children's lives. They need to encourage children to be who they want to be, helping teenagers become their own decision makers by not looking to others. Taking the time to do this will give our children more confidence in themselves and help them grow up to be stronger teenagers and adults.
Having the ability to shape a student’s life is truly a gift; so many of my art teachers inspired me to follow my dreams. After hearing Taylor Mali’s poem, What Teachers Make, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher: I want to make a difference. Mali spoke with so much passion as he answered the age old question ‘what do teachers make.’ “I make parents see their children for who they are and who they can be,” this quote really moved me because I think in a lot of situations students’ talents are overlooked by their parents (Mali.) My art teachers always had their hand in the community creating sculptures for the local fire department or crocheting hats and baby booties. I feel good teaching shows students how to apply the knowledge they learned.
