Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go back in the past and experience life through a different time era? The early 1900s was much different then the way we all have it now. To the opinion of most old-timers, most of the kids now would survive with the lack of technology. How could just a hundred years make a difference? You’d be surprised how different it really was back in the early 1900s.
Between 1945 and 1997, electoral turnout was between 71% and 83%. However, every election from 2001 has seen the lowest turnout since 1945, with a record low being 59% in 2001. The decline in electoral turnout certainly suggests a decline in interest and participation in politics. Voter apathy is on the rise – in 2001, ITV reported that 70% of viewers showed little or no interest in the publication of election results – while party identification figures are falling. The percentage of people with ‘very strong’ identification with either of the two main parties was a low 13% in 2001.
Hello my name is Christian Garcia and I’m here you to tell you about my experiences that have impacted my life towards the right direction. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California in December of 93, growing up I didn’t have much. My parents struggled to pay rent but thanks to god he at least helped us have food on the table for me, my older sis, and younger sister which was born later on. I wasn’t the smartest kid, but I’d like to say I was a late bloomer which helped me later on in middle school to work hard, and earn success the old fashion way. I had several opportunities that could have changed my educational and personal life, but I chose not to.
These concerns were rooted in the fact that most of the parents never experienced this type of freedom at their age and didn’t know how to empathize with their children anymore. Another major concern is that parents didn’t know if teens would outgrow this rebellious phase of their lives and grow up because never before were their a teenager before who knew what these rebellious kids would turn out like. In conclusion the teenage culture of the 1950s was a reaction to all the new freedoms granted to kids along with the influence of popular culture and the money in their wallets to spend on themselves. Parents were initially concerned of the well being of teens but as time passed by teenage life is an accepted
It was just like seeing Santa on his sleigh in a Christmas parade. Obviously they weren’t the real Three Kings, but as a kid I believed they were. After the festival was over, my family and I went back to my grandmother’s house and had our family party. It just so happened it was my grandmother’s responsibility to throw the family party that year, which is why we flew down. At the family party, there was great food and drinks, and we even had a band come play traditional music.

My dad was friends with just about everybody and so we had such a great diverse upbringing. When my dad passed away and we moved from the city I was surprised by how little diversity was in my second middle school. Most people were white, a few minorities and they were targeted every day for harassment. The differences from city to suburbs is troubling. Sure our cities are diverse mostly, but the rest of the country remains very
Outside of school, I am also committed to the quality of leadership by welcoming new challenges and inspiring others around me. For example, when I was a freshman in high school, I gathered a group of other dedicated singers and appealed to the Pacific Grove Unified School Board on behalf of the cutting of the chorus class at the Pacific Grove High School. My dedication to leadership continues as I am a member of the People to People Ambassador Program. People to People is an international organization dedicated to helping youths travel the world and make a difference in the world. I have traveled on two People to People trips including a visit to Boston, Massachusetts where I was able to stay in the Harvard University dorms and participate in a two week program dedicated to helping students become better leaders in their community.
They tend to drop out of school at around age 15 in order to help raise younger siblings, and sometimes their own child. They have no encouragement in the home to continue their education and are forced to work in poor paying jobs or as migrant workers. Those that get the opportunity to get their GED and continue to get a college education tend to be insecure and shy because their language skills are not at the same level as that were fortunate to receive a continuously good education. Most, not all, tend to get depressed, stressed, and overwhelmed, and some tend to once again dropout because they have no support. Those that get lucky and have a support group tent to make it to the end in order to receive their diploma or certificate and attain a better paying job.
