American Dream Wrap-up In my American Dream I wanted to be an Orthodontist. To achieve this goal I wanted to attend the University of Memphis. For the first four years to obtain my bachelor’s degree. Then I will go to The University of Tennessee College of Dentistry for four years for dental schooling, and another two years for a post doctoral program for the study of Orthodontics. To do all of this I will have to do more than what I do to get through high school. Some things I need to change in high school for college is my studying habits and procrastination. I need to study more for my classes. If I go ahead and get in the habit of studying more it will not only increase my knowledge of the subject, but also help me have a good grade in
that I can make my personal American Dream possible. As stated in my first American Dream paper, it is the government's responsibility to provide equality and security to each and every citizen. Thus allowing for every individual to be gifted various opportunities and experiences that will impact their life dream. However, after being apart of a government class that was focused upon learning the fundamental knowledge of America’s past and current federal system, the American Dream is seemingly more….
I am currently your typical junior high school girl. My priorities consist of getting good grades, pleasing my forever dissatisfied parents, having some semblance of a social life, and trying to get the boy sitting across the room to notice me. Now I am tasked with finding a perspective of the American dream, which isn't exactly on my list. So what is my perspective of the American dream? I guess I could say the typical things such as “through hard work and determination I can live a happy and free….
My American dream is having a very big motor home. Actually that is my mom’s dream, but I adopt it. It becomes my dreams too. I like traveling with my family. If I have a motor home, I can drive my family everywhere. We don’t need an actual house. We are “nomads”! It sounds very cool in this society that we are still nomads. But I want to be very cool. I think the best life is living with your family and seeing the most beautiful views around the world. Image that, you wake up near a beach. You hear….
decision that my family made to live the possibility of the "American Dream". Moreover, growing up as an Asian-American wasn’t simple; I was faced with the challenge of malicious racial slurs, spiteful judgment, and condemnation. However, through these criticism, I’ve grown to understand that our response to those judgements is what builds character in which has made me more transparent, vulnerable, and empathetic.
In the early years of my life, adapting to the foreign customs of America was my top priority….
My heritage, my culture, where I’m from is something I shall never be ashamed of. Lucky to say, I have hard-working Mexican parents who are my motivators for everything, they are the reason I hope to one day be a first-generation college graduate. When my parents had my oldest brother at 17, despite their young age, my parents were thinking of my brother’s future. Mexico has high crime rates, drug trafficking, unemployment, poverty, and climate hazards. Families come to the United States to achieve….
I know, as an American, It is my responsibility to pay back any debt I owe. I also believe that I live in a country where fairness and the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness is a fundamental right. Several years ago I attend Alabama A&M University to help me in my pursuit of the American dream. With bright eyes and an open mind, I set out on a quest to become the first male in my immediate family to graduate with a Degree from a 4-year University. I was the last of six children (5 boys and 1….
The american dream is what all young people hope to obtain later in their life after college. Although the American dream is a wonderful life to have, I don’t want just the idea of living an average lifestyle that every person purses. I rather be more than average and live a life that is overly favored and blessed by God.
Growing up in a small town, I always wonder how it felt to live in the city. Coming from a family who had many struggles and weren't financially stable, I always wonder what….

Too late to realize, she wasn’t living at all- not one bit. Alice never pursued her love to travel, never made time to go on spontaneous trips….
A recent event in my life where I felt proud was getting enough money to help my parents pay for bills and succeed and pursue "the american dream". I started to work for HoneyBaked Ham part time since I was eligible to work. The paychecks felt great and giving them to my parents was felt better. As my sister and I get ready for college, the money got tight and I did gigs on the side. I did everything from landscaping to repairing phone screens. Felt stressful but, mind over matter right? Thats exactly….
