“Where you are is not who you are. That’s a quote from her mom that Ursula Burns CEO of Xerox Corp remembers and lives by day to day. My essay is on Ursula Burns, who started off as an intern at Xerox Corp that eventually rose through the ranks to become the first African American female CEO of a Fortune 500 company. In this essay, I will discuss her career, her business leadership and her many other business strategies. During a talk at the annual awards conference, Burns talked about how her mother, who raised Ursula single, in one of the worst New York City Public Housing Projects, loved to give advice.
It is also my parents’ thought. They are the greatest teacher to me as when I was a little girl, they always teach me how to think and finish any works as the best person do. They consider that we are thought to be a successful person only when we do a work best and bring benefits to our society by that work. My parents know exactly what my characteristic I have, what I am good at and what my dream is. That is the reason why they believe I will be the best teacher and I am capable of devoting my abilities and my enthusiasm to my students and our country’s education.
However, their parents cannot afford t o help them financially and they have been discussing what they can both do about this. They have agreed that starting their own business will be a good way of making some money. Having discussed various options they have both agreed on the idea of starting a house-cleaning business in their local area. Claire is quiet and shy, but organised and very good at keeping records and accounts – she is studying Accountancy at A level. She has saved £1,000 to invest in her business venture.
“Going Rogue: An American Life” In the beginning of Sarah Palin’s book, “Going rogue,” she discusses many aspects of her early life. She starts the book off by presenting us with a scenario where she is wandering the state fair and see her daughters face on a “pro-life” poster that her daughter had posed for when she was a baby. “I love to write, but not about myself,” (pg. 409) Sarah on a book that is entirely about her and the life she lives before and after politics. She states how months before the presidential campaigning begin she gave birth to a special needs child and still managed to be a public figure who had her life together in the eyes of America.
My pregnancy was rough because I gained weight and I was very sick. Becoming a mother is a experience no woman will ever forget throughout her life. After I received the news I had to notify my family and my child’s father. The first person I told was my mother and at the beginning she wasn’t very accepting. The next person that I notified was Na’Chia’s dad and we was excited that we we’re going to be a family and he was going to be a father.
They have colleges that work with people who work during the day so they offer night classes. They also have online classes for people who work or single parents or working parents. I was faced with this situation as I entered my high school years. I grew up in a home where my mother didn’t go to college and neither did my father. However, I still looked at them as successful because we always had nice things.
The power of higher education. She did dorm for the first year, which was rather difficulty being away from her amazing support system of family and friends. Hence, why she only did that for 1 year, but in doing so it did not prevent her from accomplishing her goals of higher education. If anything, it made Mrs. Miles-John stay on track and be more persistent in accomplishing and completing her dream. She wanted to be that role model for her siblings and make her family proud!
With all my efforts I graduated high school with two degrees. One my high school degree and the other my Certified Nursing Assistant/Caregiver degree. This job basically is a job where you help the elderly to keep them company but also help them with their assisted daily livings. As I move forward from high school I found a wonderful place to work and an easy entry for a job opening as a CNA. My transition from graduating from high school was not easy, and I was very nervous of life in another city and a total different environment to what I was used to living.
Once I pass this course and receive my diploma I plan to further my nursing education. Enrolling in the Licensed Vocational Course at Kaplan College is one of my major goals for the year. Being a single mom of four kids and working a fulltime job might make this goal a struggle. I believe I can achieve my goal because, I have a great support team. I am very motivated, and persistent in everything I do.
It’s the reasoning that goes into the decision that helps ensure a positive outcome. As a young person I thought I knew exactly where my life was going and how I was going to get there. I wasn’t prepared for the fateful night that changed my life forever. I grew up in what I thought was your typical family. My parents were still married, in a time when it seemed more popular to be in a single parent home.
