Introduction

During the eighteen years of my walk with God, it has bothered me that the majority of the Body of Christ does not know about starting the promises of God for their individual lives. I started this work in the prison system of the Ohio Bureau of Corrections. Yes, I spent some time in prison. I was tutoring some fellow inmates, when the…...

Who Am I?

...Who Am I As a Student? I feel like I’m not qualified enough to speak in the classroom, especially during SPS discussions. When I look at the rest of the class, I see the students who know almost everything and have something to say about. I might have something to talk about too, but I just let them talk, because I feel like they already know what I will say or they might have thought the same ideas. Then, I give up and don’t bother participating. After all, I probably look like a loser or a shy person, who I think I’m not; at least I don’t want to be. Who Am I? I think she is neither very aggressive nor very passive. What I hate is her being so selfish all the time. I am more aggressive to my friends than the members of my family. I am being aggressive sometimes when something I can’t stand happens, such as being arrogant, attempts to take control over me or despise me. I am passive when I don’t feel like I have something to tell. It usually happens when I don’t know the people around me beforehand. It is because of the feeling “I don’t count”. It takes time for me to get used to a place or a crowd. If I trust myself, I am not passive at all. Conclusion In order to have better grades and a better life, we should open up ourselves and give a chance to the others. No matter who we are and where we are, we should follow the voice, which is inside us and do whatever it says without following any rules or letting the restrictions limit ourselves. This is the only......

Who Am I

...audiologist said. The voice I remember hearing was heartless. “Would you rather be deaf and mute and signing the whole time? Not being aware of your surrounding? Or would you rather be able to hear and talk in the normal world?” The audiologist says it with no emotions. I thought my world died when Cincinnati Children’s audiologist told my Father and me. My diagnosis at the age of two revealed a profound and unexplainable hearing loss; however, I continued to function normally as I still do today. My hearing loss is severe to profound, so I was fitted with my first hearing aids. When I heard my first sound, I was amazed at the difference between my silence world and my new hearing world. I see that people take so much for granted because hearing is so natural, but I understand the challenge of matching words to sounds to communication which wasn’t fun at all. I was “muted” for a really long time. My mother would tell me that people would get in my face talking loudly, and I would get upset. I was just starting to talk at the age of 5. English is not my first language; American Sign Language is. I attended St. Rita’s School for The Deaf for about three years and is where I became fluent in ASL. As a Kindergartener, I went to a mainstream school, Clifton Elementary. I couldn’t understand the fact that all my friends who were hearing impaired like me had to stay in a room with a teacher who knew signs. They would always tell me that I didn’t need to be there, I would have to......

Who Am I

...church (and out of church too) without thinking of what we are saying. For instance, we say in the Creed " I believe in the forgiveness of sins." I had been saying it for several years before I asked myself why it was in the Creed. At first sight it seems hardly worth putting in. "If one is a Christian," I thought " of course one believes in the forgiveness of sins. It goes without saying." But the people who compiled the Creed apparently thought that this was a part of our belief which we needed to be reminded of every time we went to church. And I have begun to see that, as far as I am concerned, they were right. To believe in the forgiveness of sins is not so easy as I thought. Real belief in it is the sort of thing that easily slips away if we don't keep on polishing it up. We believe that God forgives us our sins; but also that He will not do so unless we forgive other people their sins against us. There is no doubt about the second part of this statement. It is in the Lord's Prayer, it was emphatically stated by our Lord. If you don't forgive you will not be forgiven. No exceptions to it. He doesn't say that we are to forgive other people's sins, provided they are not too frightful, or provided there are extenuating circumstances, or anything of that sort. We are to forgive them all, however spiteful, however mean, however often they are repeated. If we don't we shall be forgiven none of our own. Now it seems to me that we often make a mistake both about......

I Am No Who I Am so What

... whether or not you have a hypothesis that addressed them. The final criterion listed above warrants additional mention. A good hypothesis is not only testable, that is, something you can actually test for in your study, but is must also be falsifiable. It is tempting to ignore this requirement, especially as a new researcher. We want so badly to find great things, and for our study to turn out exactly as we expect it to, that we tend to ignore the possibility that we don’t know everything and that no prediction is failsafe when it comes to humans. Try to keep in mind that all research is relevant. Whether or not your findings are what you expect, you will find something. Believe it or not, failing to find group differences can be just as important as finding expected group differences. In fact, studies that return results in opposition to what we were hoping for, or believed would logically occur, often lead to many more great studies than we could have hoped for. After all, it could be great for the findings of your current research to act as a guiding principal to your future research… it is likely that this would require less work in terms of literature review, as you would always be familiar with at least a portion of the literature that is relevant to your latest study!...

Who Am I

...Who Am I? Why Am I? Human beings are very inquisitive, curious and inquiring in nature. They want to know everything about the surrounding, universe what is the beginning of something? This question always has interest and curiosity in it. The inquisitive nature of man always forces him to know the history of things around him. He always loves to inquire about the development of different observable facts and events those are taking place around him. If it is so then it is quite natural that people think about their own self about the existence of their own individuality. It is believed that everything happens for a reason or we can say that if something is happening it has some valid or rational reason behind that happening. If it is so then the first question, which will jump into the mind, will surely be about the reason of my own existence. There are more or less 7 billion people living in this world and very few of them could mark their name by doing some exceptional things in their lives. Some are famous and loved by most of the people while there are some people who are notorious and people dislike them. But majority of the people in this world are simply good for nothing. They come and they die and nobody even notice their presence and their absence as well. (Olson, 2002) If we have to categorize the expression of identity we may find that basically there are two different classes of identity these are social identity and personal identity. Social identity is a......

Who Am I

...Who Am I? I identify myself as a High Honor Roll student, but most importantly as a maturing young adult. Through my life experience I have learned the true value of self-worth and I discovered my sense of identity. Although the road to achieve these things was never easy I still managed to obtain both. During my freshman year in high school I was struck with unbelieveable news; my mom and stepfather were going to get a divorce. When my mom told me it just seemed so unreal, I am so used to seeing divorce on TV but I never thought it would hit home. After I initially found out about the divorce I brushed it off and paid it no mind. It took a while for it to actually sink in and when it did, I couldn’t believe that my parents could do such a thing. My step-father was the only father figure in my life because my birth father wasn’t around. The idea of my parents getting a divorce was overwhelming emotionally. I began paying less and less attention to my school work. The divorce consumed me. I felt as if I was carrying the entire weight of the divorce on my shoulders. My step-sister stopped coming over and it was very hard,my whole family was being broken apart and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. My mom was trying her best to cope but she still remained strong it was tough seeing her in that frame of mind. My mom and step-father’s divorce lasted for a little over two years. By the end of my sophomore year I had......

What Has Made Me Who I Am

...What Has Made Me Who I Am Our text tells us “You are the product of the way you were raised, as well as your genetics. And if you are a parent, your children will be the product of how you raise them” (Witt & Mossler, 2010, p. 11). Looking back at my life, I know that is true. There are many things in my life that have molded me to be the person that I am today. Some of these experiences have been positive, and some have been negative. Either way, they are all a part of what has made me who I am. I came from a broken home. My parents, who to this day hate each other, were divorced when I was just two years old. I was an only child to my mother and the youngest of three to my father, who had previously been married. Everyone tells me that I was the apple of my mother’s eye. I personally do not believe this, because for as long as I can remember, she was always busy with work and her own life, leaving little or no time for me. My father, made it very clear at a young age that he really was not interested in playing dad to a small child. My half sister and brother are much older than I am, so they were already at an age that they did not need this. Because of this, I spent most of my time with my paternal grandparents. They did everything for me, and with me. They were two of the most amazing people that I have ever met in my life. As a school aged child, I played soccer and basketball on the town leagues. Neither my mother nor my father ever saw a game. My......

Who I Am and What I Feel

...Elcano, Divine Hyacinth E. Block 24 Fil11 I’m a crybaby. I cry a lot, I complain a lot. Minsan niloloko pa ako dahil ang babaw babaw ng luha ko. I have an idea na talaga na ganun yung mangyayari, I even told myself na “parang retreat siguro ito kaya sinabi ni Ma’am na paiiyakin kami next meeting.” Hinanda ko na ang sarili ko sa mangyayari, but things happen unexpectedly, I just found myself crying simula palang. Simula ng tumuntong ako sa elementary, unti-unti ring lumalayo ang loob ko kina Mommy at Daddy. Hanggang sa nag high school ako at halos wala na silang alam sa buhay ko. I never share secrets to them, sinasarili ko lang lahat, mula sa sinasabi ng iba sa akin, hanggang sa mga ups and downs ko sa pag-aaral. Siguro kasi lagi silang busy kaya ayaw ko ng dagdagan pa yung pinoproblema nila. Gaya ni Ma’am napaka strikto rin ng magulang ko, dapat ganito, dapat ganiyan, there even comes a time na I feel like I was under their shadows. Nasasakal ako sa kanila, naiinis ako sa kanila, I even told myself “I hate them!” ang sama kong anak, and I admit it. Sa kabila ng sakripisyo nila sa akin, ganun pa yung iniisip at sinasabi ko sa kanila. I’m selfish, I’m self-centered because of the things that happen to me. Hindi naman sila nagkulang sa pagpapa-alala sakin eh, I know that they were there pero may something na gusto kong maramdaman mula sa kanila, it was their support at yung konting words of encouragement man lang. Maraming mga......

Who Am I?

...OUTSIDE BOX-ABANDOMENT) WHO AM I Who am I What sets me apart I'm not just a body With a functioning heart Discarded at birth By an identity unknown Found by a farmer On a road made of stone Given a name Straight out of a book Didn't they realize My soul they took But I learned early on To put my emotions at bay Strangers around me Watch what I say Always be nice Keep a smile on my face Maybe they'll take me “Home” or someplace Wishing and hoping For that day to draw near While dying inside Not showing any fear Still waiting and watching As the families go by Trying to smile But only to cry Carder 2 Yes. I was abandoned And always asked why But no answers to my questions So really, who am I Then the day finally comes When I am of age No longer can they keep me Inside that brick cage So with worn out shoes And a brown paper sack I sat out to find The happiness I lacked I was finally free To begin my life I became a loving mother And a wonderful wife Some say I'm outspoken And not politically correct Others say I'm cold-hearted And I'm very direct My life has not been One of fantastic dreams No riches to speak of Mainly survival it seems None of this matters And I stopped asking why My parents didn't keep me They didn't even try So look past my surface Tell me what do you see My life......

Who I Am

...or Madam, I realize that this is not one of the prompts for the essay. But I thought instead of going through the same essays over and over again, you can get to know more about me and what I’d like to do for the future. Sound good? Ok let’s go. First of all my name is Gustavo Arturo Villarroel De La Concha Alvarez. Pretty long isn’t it? Don’t worry you can call me Gus for short. Over the past year when I still a junior in high school I conjured up a multitude of ideas for innovations that could very well alter the way we manufacture vehicles for the future, but first I need to be educated in the field that best suits that subject, Mechanical Engineering. During my junior year, I bought a 2001 6 cylinder Laser Red Ford Mustang. It was a stick shift too, so it was fun to drive on the highway switching in and out of gears and really hear the engine roar. I went with my mother and step father to the Rolex 24 since they worked for BRA Motorsports and went inside the garages for the racers and I was mesmerized by the array of sport horses as well as the components that make them up. I was always a curious soul, I just felt the need to poke my nose into things that fascinated me and I always had the urge to obtain a COMPLETE understanding of them. I would actually take some of the machines around the house and take them apart to see how they worked. As a matter of fact I always had my parents buy Legos for me to build, they were always star wars spaceships and every time I would......

Who Am I

... Who am I Who am I? If you ask me the question, it would immediately remind me of the biological definition of me as a human being. In biological approach, human beings are defined as organisms that are born to other humans and those who can only produce offspring with other human beings. Which means I, like any other human beings, belongs to Primates as well as an offspring of human beings. However, if you want me to explain who I am? I think me myself can be interpreted into two parts. And the following are the descriptions of who I am in particular contexts. The first part is called agent. As a matter of fact, Agent is a word from the field of sociology, which refers to each individual. In this agent part, I am presented as an individual who have, as Descartes said, separate distinct mind and body, or, in another word, like Locke has mentioned before, have kind of an identity that I identify myself. Also, it can be explained as the picture I have in my mind of myself. From my knowledge, base on Descartes’s ideas of ‘I think therefore I am’ and distinct mind and body, my mind consists of a collection of fragments of personalities. For example, there is a collection of some shyness, some noisiness and cleverness within my mind. And then I have a physical body enable me to touch and feel. Through my body I can do gestures and movement; I gain sight so that I can perceive the world as images; Moreover, I can hear voices and taste. And......

Who Am I

...Who am I? A wonderful psychology by the name of Erikson once said“The more you know yourself, the more patience you have for what you see in others.” I have grown to know myself over the past 15 years. I am learning that I change daily, but the things that don’t change about me is name, birthplace, personality and family background. My name is Aerial Paige King. I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. My family raised me into the lady I am today. My mother was a junior in college when I was born. She made the decision to continue her college career with the support of all our family. I main remember spending the most time with my immediate family. I lived with my grandparents from birth until 8th grade. I have a close relationship with my parents which is my grandparents, biological parents, and my stepfather. I am a huge family person who enjoy putting a smile on people face and making them safe. My personality is really bubbly, honest, and curious. My motives, values, and thoughts have changed over the years. I remember being a great and bad students. I was really popular in elementary and secondary schooling. I wanted to make people laugh as well as my teachers. Some of those got me in trouble. I always knew my parents raised me well. It wasn’t till high school I learned to make everyone laugh without crossing the line or getting trouble. My views on schooling and future changed in high school. I was once a person who never like to challenge my brain I was alright......

Who Am I

...Who Am I 8/1/2015 This self-analysis gives an idea of who I am, what I believe in, what kinds of behaviors I have, what my gender roles are, what social influences I have, what I see as my group dynamics, and how I feel about relationships. This is all about me and who I am inside as a person, my very own self- analysis. I have changed a lot over the last few years so if I had written this a few years ago I am sure it would have been answered differently. I am a survivor. I believe myself to be a survivor because I have brought myself to a place in my life that will keep me alive. I have battled with drugs and alcohol for most of my life and have been clean for 7 years now, all of my own doing. I have lived on the streets and fought battles with myself teaching myself to live independent of others to survive. I am independent. I can live on my own and take care of myself and my family without the help of others. I have been to the bottom of the worst places in life and that has taught me to not be carless with what I have, and know that I can lose it all again in the blink of an eye. I am happy. I enjoy life. I have lived my life in dark places for so long. I love life so much now. I enjoy family and friends and all of the time I have with them, knowing that every day I wake is another blessing to me. I have to say I believe myself to be both independent and interdependent. I think independent because of all that I have achieved in my life because of all of the......

Who Am I

...April 2016 Who Am I? I am Gwayshala Campbell, a seventeen year old girl. I am a very optimistic student who makes bad decisions, cries when she is happy, smiles when she is sad, and is willing to work. Each day I grow as a person. Every experience in my life good or bad, happy or sad makes me stronger. Each passing moment is a new life experience for me and makes me grow into the person I want to be. Day by day, hour by hour I take a new step in my life, a step towards another, into a world full of knowledge. Knowledge is all around me, waiting for me to learn new things and process new information that will teach me through life. I am a student throughout life, not just in the classroom. I am a person who makes many mistakes, but have the courtesy to learn from them and not make them twice. I am a person who laughs so hard that I have tears running down my cheeks. I am an emotional person who cries whenever I need to and is not embarrassed to express myself that way. I express whatever I am feeling so I don't have to hold it inside until I explode. I need hugs and kisses from my loved ones and I give them back with no hesitation. I am that person who tries to light up the room with a smile. I am that person who tries to pick you up when you are down, laugh when you want to cry, and is there when you want to talk. I have a great shoulder for people to lean on and see myself as an excellent friend. I am a good listener and will shut up until you are finished. I give good......

“Who Am I?”

...“Who Am I?” --by Michael Cho I wish I could write about the Michael Cho who stars in my Walter Mitty-like fantasies. If only my personal statement could consist of my name followed by such terms as Olympic athlete, master chef, boy genius, universal best friend, and Prince Charming to every hopeful woman. These claims would be, at worst, outright lies, or at best, gross hyperbole. My dreams, however, take their place alongside my memories, experiences, and genes in the palette that constitutes who I am. Who am I? I am a product of my reality and my imagination. I am innately depraved, yet I am made perfect. I plan my day with the knowledge that “Everything is meaningless” (Ecclesiastes 1:2), but I must “make the most of every opportunity” (Colossians 4:5). I search for simple answers, but find only complex questions. Once, on my way to a wrestling tourname whether living in an abode which rotated near the speed of light would result in my being younger (utilizing the Theory of Relativity) and stronger (utilizing the properties of adaptation along with the definition of centripetal and gravitational force) that I failed to realize that I had left my wrestling shoes in my locker. My mother says that my decision to wrestle is indicative of the fact I don’t think. Through working in a nursing home, the most important lesson I’ve learned is that I have many lessons yet to learn. Thus the most valuable knowledge I possess reminds me how little knowledge I have. Often...
