Marco Rivera Instructor: Jennifer Colburn ENC. 1101-41798 14 February 2013 From Puerto Rico to America In less than twenty four hours, a new page of my life had unfolded. Throughout my childhood, I had moved several times; however, none of those moves affected me the way that this one did. In addition, little did I know that leaving my homeland, the beautiful Island of Puerto Rico, to come to America would change my life so drastically. I was young and anxious not knowing what (I felt like) was waiting for me on the other side of the world.
I take a high level of pride in my last name because I was always taught it represented our family as a whole. Whenever someone says “Alex Keller” is not a good person, they are shaming my entire family and that isn't something I should bring upon us. On the contrast my mother, hailing from Detroit, taught me about standing up for what is right and having my voice heard. Many social issues such as racism or homophobia were never really a problem for me. I literally didn't even know things like that existed till I got to intermediate school.

Decision- Making Process Paper Deborah Walker Course: MGT/230 - MANAGEMENT THEORY AND PRACTICE Instructor: EVE MORSE September 29, 2014 A time in my life when I had to make a crucial decision and use my decision making strategies was when I had to relocate from Kansas City, KS to Kansas City, MO. Though that does not sound like a major change, for me it was I grew all my life and began raising my children. I had never really been exposed to Kansas City, Mo because everything I ever need was around me so there was never any need to branch out. My decision primarily was did I really want to move Missouri and did I want to start over? There were a lot of things that would change for me and my family.
I believe it is very significant to the country’s history because it shows the reader how much of a problem the US has had with immigration since the 1800’s! The fact that the Chinese were “unlike” the US citizens in some ways did NOT give the government the right to completely revoke all immigration from
Although we do have fads, as all countries do, our maturity lends to individual styles which are socially acceptable and respected. There is no need for false imaging to gain social acceptance. However, this was the country my parents, grandparents and descendants grew up in. Over the years as I was growing up, my parents realized that they had to furnish me with everything my classmates had; just to keep me from being bullied by
• Would you change anything about your childhood that your Mom or Dad did or didn’t do? I really wouldn’t change a thing! I think it is the very best childhood I could ever have! They were cautious and I might not have understood that when I was young, but now I totally understand and appreciate it. The only issues we ever had were about me doing my homework and that was very gentle reminders.
The challenges we face Can you imagine moving from one country to another? Can you imagine leaving your friends and family and go to a place where your language, and religion is different? Well it happened to me, moving to America from Pakistan was a big step for family and I. A place where women covered themselves at all times, where it is hard to find a job, where the education does not have value like the education in America does, where the language is Urdu or Hindi. All this is a huge difference from what we call the land of freedom and opportunities: “The United States of America.” Education opportunities in America pulled us from Pakistan.
On September 2, 2005, I finally arrived in America. Like many other immigrants, I had a hard time adjusting to the American lifestyle. Being new in America meant a new culture, new language, and new friends; I had to learn everything instantly with no one to
