When someone describes their selves they usually say a ton of words that best fit them. Although many words help describe a person sometimes just one word is enough. The word that would best describe me I think would be pursuer. One thing that makes me a pursuer is my family, they raised me to never give up on my dreams and I want to do achieve my goals to give back to them. Along with that another reason is I am a pursuer because I try hard for my own benefit. In addition a third reason is I want to be a quintessential role model to others in similar struggles as mine. As said before my first reason choosing this word is because of my dedication to give back to my family and those who were there for me. My family has sacrificed many things to give me an easier life than they had. I feel like they should get something in return for planting hard work and dedication in me. I try to save money so when Christmas comes along I get them gifts they can enjoy. I always give money to family members that need it, I don’t ask them to return it. I try my best at achieving my goals to make my family proud and to one day give back to them and those who were there for me. Along with that my second reason is simply my hard work for my own benefit. I always have big dreams and high expectations set for myself. The only way I’ll achieve those dreams and high expectations is by pursuing my dreams with hard work and dedication. I almost always try my best at anything I do for my own good. No one in this world will ever just give me success. If I don’t succeed then I simply try and try again no matter how hard or long it takes. I also plan a lot because I believe that those who plant hard work harvest success. In addition the third reason as said before is I want to be a quintessential role model to others in similar struggles as mine. I am an immigrant and like many other teen immigrants I came at as a child raised in the

    My first reason is that I wanted to see if college. I say this because college is not for everybody. I have seen an overwhelming amount of people go to college and drop out. For an example, in my family, on my mother’s side, my aunties and uncles decided not to go to college. On the other hand, my family, on my father’s side, went to college and did not get a job based on what they majored in or went to college, but dropped out.

    “Give me liberty or give me death.” (henry). This is a famous quote from the talented American revolunist Patrick Henry. It was said that henry could position his audience to anger, fear or laughter more sudden then professional actors. He showed this talent in his Speech at the Virginia Conventiomn. The most popular poets and writers uses multiple techniques and strategies to grasp their audience attention. The rhetorical devices include pathos, that appeals to emotion, ethos, which means authority, logos introduces logic. Many revolunist uses the rhetorical triangle, which is “the art of enchanting the soul” (plato). Arthur Miller uses these styles as well in his play The Crucible. I strongly believe that henry used ethos, pathos and rhetorical questioning to connect with the audience in The Crucible.…
