Boago

John F Kennedy High School

In our social lives being different is seen as a negative thing but I would like to change that. Being different means being unique, one of a kind. That means that there is no one else like you. I would like to become a special needs teacher because I know how it feels to be different and to be the odd one out. I believe that my differences, and my multi-cultural differences would help me excel in this career and make sure that I am helping my students the best way that I possibly can.

Kyla

John F. Kennedy

In life, you don't always have to do everything independently. As the new generation tends to get older, they believe that becoming independent and being on your own is the was to life. Someone is always in the need for help and assistance. I can be cooperative when it comes to working with people or if their is any misunderstanding that is going on with their life. I like to be connected with people and to show guidance towards them for what ever they need. I believe when we get older we have to change the way that others think about certain things. I can teach others new things, especially when it comes to the young ones. The younger people in the world will change our future when we grow up. Some of the hobbies I enjoy are caring for children and helping others concerns.
