Coming from a country where poverty and less opportunity are the present every day I saw in a lot of kids and youths with talents and aspirations for their lives and their future, and these aspirations could disappear when time goes by and they can’t be reached. We in our country don’t have the support to develop our talents and came true our dreams or goals for our future. Most of the time we are like stars in the sky that can bright, because there is no a chance to show that we can. On my trip to come here and passing across some countries , I have the experience to see, it again in Guatemala, Mexico, and The United States, but the interesting thing about it was that in each place, it happened differently, regardless the resources, economy situation, and education level. It also continues happening in the life of youths in different scale, problems and obstacles. My purpose to write this paper is to show you what a talent show is , my reason to organize it, when and where it will happen, who will participate in it, and what I will learn by organizing it. This talent show will be free for all youthcare’s staff, clients and volunteers that donate their time as their money, and the most important thing is to share their love and contributions to change a lot of lives. Anyway, in this talent show 10 youths will be performing by showing different talents, and each one of them will get a prize for being brave to be on the stage in front of a lot of people. In addition, there will be a talent winner that will be chosen by the audience in the event. The event’s theme will be hope and the scenery will be decorated with different hope’s quotes and people of hope.

What does talent show mean?

I found the best and simple description on Wikipedia; it describe a talent show as an event where participants perform their talents of acting, singing, dancing, acrobatics, drumming, martial, arts, playing instruments, and others activities to showcase a unique form of talent . It’s sometimes for a reward, trophy or prize, school talents show awards of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. What does a talent show mean for me?

for me, a talent show is a way to express, show our sentiments, and combine it whit the passion and skills that god give to each of us. Knowing what we have, to be able to show Its to the world. The beauty about a talent show, it’s that raze, skin color, gender, religion are on the side of the way, because the most important are yours skills, talents, and all the sentiments that you put in to it; the sentiments that come from you hearth, no from your color, nationality, gender, or religion. Your talents it’s the give that god gave to you, but you need o find it and when you realize how special, and talent you are; you will be ready to give to the world a strong bright, with the capacity to give light to everyone in your side. Before, I came to Seattle; I was in Houston, Texas, in a high security immigration program for under 18 immigrants youths whit criminal delist. Most of the kids there have criminal records in the United States. At the first day I was there one kids was broking a t.v. with a chair, the securities were trying to control him. In addition, I was so scary, because most of the clients were violents and mean each other; some of them were gangs members of two different sides in California. Anyway, no matter, how violents they were, I discovered something that surprised me. Most of these kids were no bad or deserved the word criminals. T hey just did things that were bad, but it don’t want to said that they were bad kids whit bad sentiments or bad human beings.
