I don’t know if this homework is going to be right or not. The assignment that Ms. Gross gave us was writing a paragraph about somebody we admire. To start, I would say that I don’t have a specific person, but I do admire every individual who struggles with difficulties in his/her life and has strengthens and willingness to stand up and keep going. And when I say difficulties I mean every kind of them; for instance: accidents, death, disability, disease, trauma, abuse, low income, etc. I admire people who were being beaten by others and they have eagerness to try one more time no matter what human beings think and say about them. I have a high regard for those who had lost everything in their lives, and they still have enthusiasm to rebuilt and start all over again. Those people really draw my attention and make me think about myself. Sometimes I complain for little things, but once I know and see the reality of others, I can realize that my problems are not even the half of them. Watching their behavior, I learn to be grateful for what I have and for what have given to me every day. So before complaining about something just be thankful for what we have. Paying attention on how people with real problems know how to get rid of them with a constructive and admirable attitude.

I have a lot of goals and plans for my life. Only God knows if I will be able to reach them all. I'm studying English as a Second Language because I'm going to study Psychology. To prepare myself in that area I'm taking a psychology course at Stanford just because I want to train myself and see how hard is going to be. Another goal that I would like to accomplish is traveling around the United States to visit some important and beautiful places. In order to get that, I'm saving money every month because I need enough capital to do that. I know it's an ambitious plan. It's going to be hard, but nobody said that life would be easy. It's up to us try to reach our goals even if we fail unless we tried to make them true. It's better endeavor instead of waiting for the opportunity to knocks our door.

Everyone says that Canada College has several and very good learning resources. Personally, I do not have time to go and use them. Last semester, I went to the Learning Center to make an appointment to see a tutor because I had questions about what were the steps to get a degree. So, I talked to a person and she gave me some clues about the whole process of getting a degree. Also, when I enrolled in Canada College I asked for Financial Aids since I do not have enough money to pay the real fees. That is something that I really liked it about Canada because they helped me to pay my fess, and the process it was not hard to do it. I am really happy about that assistance. Finally, I think I am going to use the resources of Canada College because I believe we need to take advantage of them. That is why they are there ready to be use for us.
