There I was, I looked to my left and saw the castle. I've been here a handful of times, but never have I felt as emotional as I did now. Overwhelmed by feelings of pride, nerves and accomplishment, I marched across the bridge on my way to Main Street USA. To others in the marching band this was just another parade. The same band had marched in the Rose Bowl Parade, NYC's Macy's Parade, and Pasadena, but for me, this was the biggest crowd I had ever marched in front of, as it was only my second parade.

I try to do too many things at once, which leads me to the accomplishment of nothing. I did not use to make outlines for my paper because I felt that it restricted me from what I could and could not write. I do not like restrictions because I enjoy writing freely and expressing my personality through writing.

As a group we never had conflict because we had very easy going personalities, we wanted to get things done effectively, therefore if there was a conflict we would normally use majority rules. During the first few meeting, we took the time to discuss how we would normally understand, and solve conflicts. Most of our thoughts had similarities, however, we took the time to talk it through and have everyone understand and on the same page. As a group, we knew that we were individuals, and we all have different mindsets as we are in different places in our lives. However, as a group we manage conflict really well.
I didn’t struggle on the research or putting out content and I didn 't half-heartedly write about this topic. Every sentence felt like it contributed to the meaning of the research. Personally, I believe this paper is easily one of my best papers I have written. What also made me proud of this paper was the fact that did this all by myself.

I encourage people to help everyone they can in their life, and I certainly hope that people truly enjoy helping others through life. I try to get people to be the way I am, through my actions. I don’t judge people fast, and I try my best to assume that people in general are good and are not up to no good. My life has been full of so many events.
Well, I would like to start off with an honest beginning. How many of you honestly, want to hear somebody else’s speech rather than your own? Well, I’m just guessing, but I’ll say, most of you don’t at all, matter as a fact if you could leave, as soon as your speech is done, you wouldn’t even hesitate. Just being honest, not many of us do that nowadays. So, I’ll begin this speech with something no one expected, I know your sitting like, “Here we go, another boring speech, blah blah blah…” So, I decided to make this fun while, being professional.
This moment I felt that talking is now part of me as it is ingrained into my soul. Signing has left my soul. Growing up with hearing students for the past 12 years, I no longer feel that I am part of the deaf community, but part of the hearing community. My true self blossomed. The difference between body and self So today, I have shared with you my journey in deafness.
It’s not that everyone likes change, but most have been through it so many times and would like to see the leaders manage change with care and dignity, that they no longer dread it. Identifying the evidences of a great culture is all fine and good. At Customs this was never the case, employees’ always resisted change and complained, however I can honestly say that within the last 2-3 years employees has really been more receptive to change. This is very discouraging if you aren’t working in an environment with such an unhealthy culture. To those persons I would suggest: You have the power to change the culture, one day at a time.
