This happen to me a month ago when my boss called me for a meeting in his office, to talk just with my in private. The first thought in my mind was “I’m fired” but I did not know why or what was the reason for that decision. While my boss entered the office, my head was full of many thoughts about why me, and how will I get other job like this. In the meantime, my boss asked me about my family with a big smile; this is was so weird for me, assuming that the meeting was to fire me. I was very nervous because it was the first time that I had a meeting with him in private so I just gave him a short answer “They’re good in Venezuela” without any details. He started to ask me other questions like how do I feel in this company? And what did I think about some changes that he wanted to do in the company? At this time, instead of thinking about my firing, I started to think that this meeting was something good after all my nervousness.
In fact, the reason of the meeting was to talk about the company and discuss a new project that he has for me. I was so excited when he decided to involve me more in the company because I have been there for less than a year. Before the meeting finished, my boss asked me in a funny way “David, have you ever been to Las Vegas?” And I answered him with a sarcastic tone “Boss, I have taken only one plane in my life, and it was to come to this country 11 months ago” He laughed at me and said “Get ready to take your second plane ride in your life David because I see that you’re so smart for your age, and you have been learning so much about my business. I would like to send you to one of the most important technology convention around the word, “CTIA” in Las Vegas, Nevada the next month to learn more about the retail phones business and how you will help me to improve my business in the future”. Can you imagine how did I feel when he said that? I didn’t realize what was happening in the moment; I just

    Most people rely on the security and care of others to provide for their loved ones when they put them in a nursing home. What they don’t realize is how much neglect goes on to the people they care most about. Residents are at risk of being abused by their caretakers but they are also at risk of being restrained, which may lead to a form of abuse. At Southwestern Nursing Home I have witnessed forms of neglect and abuse. Nursing homes are meant to be a place for security for the elderly to be cared for in their golden years, and it has become an unpleasant experience for senior citizens being subjected to acts of abuse and neglect.…

    So my last weekend before being deployed has finally arrived. I wanted to do something exciting, extreme - something I never would have imagined doing before – something that would take a lot of heart to do. Maybe even could be called a little crazy as others told me. Skydiving was something I had never done and certainly had never thought of doing until now.…

    It was a hot, sticky day in New York city when we were headed to Coney Island to enjoy the beach. My friends Michaela, Taylor, Karlie and I were ecstatic everywhere we went; this being our first trip to New York. We arrived at Coney Island and immediately hustled to the beach like a swarm of bees. The water was nice and cool and there were seashells everywhere which we scavenged for to bring home. Swimming in the ocean was such a surreal feeling that engulfed all of us until we were too exhausted to continue. We decided to browse the shops on the pier for some keep-sakes or souvenirs to take home to our families and friends. After what seemed like hours we had gathered up all of the must-have trinkets and clothing and were headed back to our area to return to our hotel when we saw a little stand with mini cages on it. Curious, we made our way over to discover dozens of baby turtles, each in their own separate cage. Watching them with excitement, we decided to buy two of them and take them back to South Dakota with us, not thinking about the travel the little turtles would have to endure.…

    People underestimate the competitiveness and risks that go along with cheerleading. Some also do not consider it a sport, which is an unfortunate opinion. I took a tremendous risk when I decided to join the cheerleading team in seventh grade, although I had neither prior experience in cheerleading nor any sport for that matter. Being lanky and uncoordinated for most of my elementary years caused me to avoid any type of sports for the fear of embarrassment and failure. However, cheerleading appealed to me, because I admired the girls' and guys' bravery when it came to the challenging skills and routines.…

    So there I stood, no clue about my surroundings in a place I had never been before. Being in a forest all alone with nothing but a barely sharp pocket knife is a bad place to be but I had no choice in the matter, I was lost. I knew the first thing I had to do would be to build some kind of a shelter, something to keep me out of the weather and safe from any animals wanting to eat me. Next, I would need to find a food source abundant enough to last until I could be found. So I set out to find a perfect spot. After walking for hours I came upon a stream that would be a perfect place to find a never ending food source. With it being spring, the fish would be starting to spawn, and with hibernation season ending, smaller game would be coming out to feed and drink from the stream. This would also be the ideal spot for me to build my shelter. The area of the stream is location had a fairly wide open clearing, so it would be a good place to stay close to, and a good place to start a signal fire big enough to be seen easily seen from the air. I made a pretty basic shelter. I made a typical lean-to with branches I found lying around. I first found two tall trees kind of close together with branches about five to six feet from the ground. Next I took the branches I found lying on the ground and attached them to the trees. With the frame now in place, I began adding to the frame by laying other branches onto the support beams to make a back wall and putting leaves and grass on top to help keep rain out. After finishing the shelter I covered the inside with leaves and grass to make a soft place to lie.…

    Growing up nothing ever affected me as much as the time when I saw my baby sister in agony. Cecelia was only two years old at the time and yet she had already gone through something so horrific and frightening for a toddler to experience. I could not understand what was happening as I was only a little girl. The feeling that I had in the pit of my stomach left me feeling petrified because it was truly one of my worst experiences. But the way I felt was nothing compared to how frantic my mom was. Watching her daughter going through such agony is one of the worst experiences a mother can have happen to them. My dad was only minutes away when he raced down I-95 like Paul Walker in the Fast and Furious to beat the trauma hawk heading towards the hospital.…
