"Before I Was, There Were . . .”

My parents who have raised me and loved me my whole life. My father was originally married once before but got a divorce when i was young and soon remarried afterwards. Both of my parents had really tough lives growing up which is the reason why they push me and tell me to appreciate everything i get even if its not that great. My parents have paved the way for my future based on their experiences. They have made me the person i am today.

My dad Keese Shannon Adams was born in Elizabeth New Jersey. My dad was part dominican, indian and african american. He was also the second oldest of 5 children. His family was divided when his parents divorced. He was then shuffled back and forth between parents. He eventually moved to Augusta, Georgia to attend a very prestigious school for gifted children with his mother and two brothers.My father had a very tough life growing up. He was poor, he lived in the ghetto, and he even witnessed many deaths around him. Growing up was very tough for my dad knowing that he moved out the house and lived on his own at a young age.

I've looked up to my father my whole life I can talk to him about anything because hes been there for me no matter what. My mom has too but its not the same because im a boy we have that father son type of bond its weird sometimes but its also pretty cool. I dont have to be afraid to talk to my father about anything he never judges me but instead gives me advice from his own experiences. Me and my dad might have our ups and downs but in the end we still love each other and that goes for my mom too.

My mom Mona Sim Adams was born in BatamBang Cambodia durring the Cambonia Holocaust. She was the second oldest of five children also. She moved to America when she was very young as a refuge during president Carter’s administration. She’s from a very family oriented…...

If I Were Mayor

...If I were the Mayor of Burleson Essay By Abby Seamster If I were the Mayor of Burleson, I would take every advantage of it. Being the Mayor comes with great authority and also great responsibility and I would use both of these traits in order to achieve my goals. To start off, if I were mayor I would try to focus on and improve the marketing, advertisement, and publication concerning community wide events and fundraisers. I would work to help reach out to the youth of Burleson so that our generation can become more involved with our community at a younger age. Getting the teenagers and children to participate in community events is vital to contributing to the major goals of our community and to helping Burleson thrive and grow. In addition to connecting the youth to the community, I would also pass an ordinance to raise fines for littering across our town. In continuing to unite the community of Burleson, keeping this city beautiful plays a major part. Littering is just one way in which our town becomes less unified, so I would fight to stop this disrespect of our city. I would also try to organize more money into a budget for making our city more beautiful. This budget would cover more landscaping and maintenance projects across the community. Another thing I would do as mayor would be to set aside more money in our budget to go towards our city’s drug awareness program. It is sad heart-breaking and devastating to see so many of our promising teenagers and young......

If I Were the Cmo of Htc

...Marketing Management I Paper on “If I were the CMO of HTC” By Prashant Nair Why I chose HTC HTC is a company which was on par with the likes of Samsung mobile till 2010. Since 2011, HTC has lost a majority of its market share to Samsung and other competitors. The major reason behind this was the management’s blind eye towards the marketing front. HTC is known to be a highly innovative company coming up with a good mix of robust yet stylish smartphones. The company believed that its cutting edge technology would be enough to sell its phones. HTC has an array of superb phones, but, the general consumer may not remember even one of these phones. Every year there are at least 2 or 3 HTC phones which make it to the top ten lists for the year. Still, the recall value for HTC is nowhere near the same for Samsung or for the Apple IPhone. There are ample reasons to believe that a more aggressive marketing strategy could have helped HTC to grab a major chunk of the market share. History of HTC HTC Corporation is a Taiwanese manufacturer of smartphones and tablets. It was founded by Cher Wang, H.T. Cho and Peter Chou in 1997. HTC began designing some of the world's first touch and wireless hand-held devices in......

Moon Was Never There Before

...Experiment #3 Venturi Meter Fluid Mechanics Lab Abstract Flow rate is a common measurement which often needs to be performed. A venturi meter allows the flow rate in a pipe to be determined from a pressure differential. A venturi narrows the diameter of the pipe for a short duration, converting pressure head to velocity head. Through this pressure differential, Bernoulli’s equation, and the known dimensions of the venturi, the flow rate of the incompressible fluid can be determined. I h1 hthroat ntroduction Q Figure 1: Venturi Meter Concept Pressure is measured at the point h1 and hthroat. As seen in Figure 1, the point hthroat is known as the vena contracta – this is where the velocity is at its maximum. Listed in Table 1 are the venturi dimensions. Athroat is the cross-sectional area of the throat, where hthroat is measured; A1 is the area at the point where h1 is measured. Table 1: Venturi Data A1 (d1) | Athroat (dthroat) | 0.0021 m2 (0.026 m) | 0.00080 m2 (0.016 m) | Because the amount of energy in the flowing fluid must be conserved, the pressure drop occurring is easily used to measure the velocity of the fluid in the throat. This is converted to volumetric flow rate by multiplying the cross-sectional area. Procedure The venturi meter experiment is initiated by closing the valves on the hydraulic bench, turning on the pump, and slowly opening them to ensure that water is flowing. Open the air valve atop the manometer bank and......

If I Were a Voice

...I. If I were a voice, a persuasive voice, That could travel the wide world through,  I would fly on the beams of the morning light, And speak to men with a gentle might,  And tell them to be true. I'd fly, I'd fly, o'er land and sea, Wherever a human heart might be,  Telling a tale, or singing a song, In praise of the right - in blame of the wrong. II. If I were a voice, a consoling voice, I'd fly on the wings of air,  The homes of Sorrow and Guilt I'd seek, And calm and truthful words I'd speak  To save them from Despair. I'd fly, I'd fly, o'er the crowded town,  And drop, like the happy sun-light, down Into the hearts of suffering men,  And teach them to rejoice again. III. If I were a voice, a convincing voice, I'd travel with the wind,  And whenever I saw the nations torn By warfare, jealousy, or scorn,  If I were a voice, a convincing voice, I 'd travel with the wind,  And whenever I saw the nations torn By warfare, jealousy, or scorn,  Or hatred of their kind, I'd fly, I'd fly, on the thunder-crash,  And into their blinded bosoms flash; And, all their evil thoughts subdued,  I'd teach them Christian Brotherhood. IV. If I were a voice, a pervading voice, I'd seek the kings of Earth;  I'd find them alone on their beds at night-- And whisper words that should guide them right--  Lessons of priceless worth; I'd fly more swift than the swiftest bird,  And tell them things they never heard-- Truths which the ages for aye repeat--  Unknown to the......

If I Were the Scientist

...blissfully ignorant of the praises or the abuses heaped on its head. If I Were A Scientist, I believe that we are suffering from the effect of a little science badly applied and the remedy is a lot of science properly applied. Hence I need not offer any apologies for wishing to be a scientist. But I want to be a scientist with a difference. I do not want myself to be confined to the ivory tower of pure reason unmindful of the realities of life. It is not a mere empty statement to say that the modern mind lives, breathers and has his being in this age of science. In every minor detail of our life science plays a very valuable role. I wish to contribute my share in making this world better than I find it. At the very beginning, I may make it clear that if I were a scientist, I would like to carry on my work in the province of pure science. Pure science is a relentless search for truth, for the discoveries of the mysteries of nature. As such no fault finding is possible with the area of scientific research which has broadened the frontiers of man’s knowledge about himself and his world. It is systematized knowledge and its pursuit which has led to the unraveling of the mysteries of nature and the harnessing of its wonderful power. What the scientist discovers in the seclusion of his laboratory after years of research comes to have far-reaching result in our practical life. If I were a scientist, I would like to be independent of powerful business and industrial......

Before I Die I Want to

...Before I die I want to... Before I die I want to be able to do many things that I want to do but I will only highlight a few that I really would like to be able to focus on. One thing that I want to be able to do before I die is to be able to live happy and relaxed for a long period of time. Another thing that I would want to be able to do before I die is to travel to a few different countries or even states for example in particular South Korea and maybe London. Something else that I would want to be able to accomplish before I die is to be at the top position possible at a job in the IT field or some computer related position. Lastly before I die I would like to be able to live life without regrets. The reasoning behind me wanting to be able to live a happy and relaxed life is because ever since I got into high school I don’t think have been living constantly happy life, and I have defiantly not been able to be relaxed because I picked up a job that I almost work every day and have lots of things I have to constantly worry about especially now that I’m in college, and my grades really matter to me now and hoping that I will be able to do well in my classes. Another reason that I would want to live happily is because living happy can help your life span so If I continue on living stressed out and worried about things every day I feel like it can affect my health in the long term, I feel like being able to live worry free would be such a good feeling. I really......

If I Were an Hr Manager

...If I were an HR manager Being an HR manager is a very difficult role in any company weather it is a large enterprise or a small company. HR manager is an Individual within an organization responsible for hiring new employees, supervising employee evaluations. He also should mediate between employees and bosses, and general oversee the personnel department. If I were an HR manager, first of all, I would be like a positive personage. We can all agree that It is very, very hard to get ahead without being a positive person because, very simply, no one likes to work under or near a “dark cloud”. Even if the “cloud” is very smart. Also staff will be easier perceive such manager and openly communicate with him. Second one, I would try to create a good atmosphere within the company by creating some team buildings, giving rewards, giving a thorough feedback of their work and etc. And of course If you want to manage personnel effectively, help them by making sure organizational chart leaves as little as possible to the imagination. It should paint a clear picture of reporting relationships and make it patently obvious who is responsible for what results. As I said before HR manager role is complicated. I can say that HR manager is like a heart of the company. It is circulate all human processes within the organization, he is “pumps blood” for all departments thereby directing it in the right direction (it is like to put the right person on the right place) and sets the rhythm of......

I Was a Prisoner

...I Was a Prisoner The words in this book have given me more peace, love and happiness than I ever could of imagined. Learning to walk, talk and live by faith I was able to find the courage to write a testimony of my life that has helped to enrich and empower others. My parents divorced when I was very young. My father quickly moved away; leaving me with feelings of loss and abandonment. One morning I woke to the sound of my parents yelling, and the incident ended with my father shooting the family dog. As a result, I was consumed with anger, hate and was fearful he would come back and shoot me. Twelve years later, my father resurfaced and took my sister, her boyfriend and I to his home in Florida against our mother’s wishes. I was ready to phone her with the truth when my father came to me drunk with a baseball bat, put it to my head, and threatened to kill me if I told my mom the truth. I put him out of my mind and my heart and instead turned to my stepfather for guidance. Unfortunately, that would not last long, as one day he decided to molest me while I was asleep on the couch. This only happened once, but left me living in fear. For that reason I turned to alcohol to deal with the pain, and constant bullying at school caused me to drink more. My mother blamed me for everything, which caused our relationship to diminish severely. At age sixteen, I met a guy whom I quickly found interest in. June 17th was my birthday and he took me to the lake for a surprise party......

I Was Only Three

...But I Was Only Three Mommy and daddy, two people who you think would be in life forever. Well, not in my case. When i was just three years old my dad passed away in a tragic car accident. My “so-called” forever turned into a never in a matter of seconds. Did you know that losing one’s father during childhood was linked to a 50% greater risk of premature death? Its true, but does that mean in going to death early because of the experience of my father? I was left with so many question my mother wouldn't talk about. Where was he originally from? Did he attend college? What were his goals in life? What was he doing at ten o’ clock at night when he got into that terrible car accident? Why wasn't he coming home from church with us? As the years go by, i realize that a life without a father has created an empty hole in my heart. The only memories that remain of my father are the ones from the night he died and his funeral. The night my father passed away was a big blur, but I have gathered up the main events. I clearly remember the ride home from church and how my mother and I were able to see the car accident that occurred at the corner of where I lived in Miami. We both wondered what had happened and were puzzled as we pulled in our driveway as our neighbors were going insane. My short memories allows me to confirm the fact that I was stuck in the car with my neighbors’ daughter as I was screaming and yelling at her to let me go see want happened. My memory of that night......

If I Were a Boy

...Images “If I were a boy” is a song written by BC Jean and Toby Gad and was recorded by one of the most popular female singers of this generation, Beyoncé. She is a singer, actress, song writer, choreographer and designer. She was number one on the list of the “Most Powerful and Influential Musicians in the World”. This song was produced for her third album in 2008. The genre of the song is pop and it mainly expresses the differences in gender and how they can affect a relationship. The lyrics show what happens when a woman changes roles with a man and tries to understand his actions from his point of view. The video created for this song was directed by Jake Nava and it does connect with the lyrics. In the music video we see Beyoncé taking the role of her partner. She tries to see what it would be like to be a man while her husband takes the role of the woman. In the beginning, Beyoncé is a cop and she ignores her husband in order to flirt with her male coworker. She doesn’t see the things that her husband is trying to do for her including making her breakfast, buying her jewelry and avoiding other woman to not make her jealous. By the end of the video we see that in reality the rolls are reversed. It is in fact the husband who is flirting with his coworkers, while Beyoncé cooks and buys him gifts. In the song she mentions that if she was a boy she would do things differently because she understands how a woman feels and how much it hurts to be taken for granted. I......

I Was a Teenage Mother

...I Was a Teenage Mother “This is not what I wanted for you, “my mother said, with tears in her eyes. My teenage years were hard. I was the daughter of an addict. I had little family support, but still I made the best of everything. Two months before my sixteenth birthday, I found out my life was going to change. I was pregnant. Being pregnant at a young age was expected in my neighborhood. Pregnancy at this age was not what I wanted for myself. I knew pregnancy could be tough on a woman mentally, financially, and also physically. In life, people are faced with choices. Some of life’s choices are very simple, for example, deciding what to wear to work or choosing what to watch on TV. Other choices, however, are much more serious and have life-altering consequences. Being pregnant had many choices, whether to keep my baby. There was no question I was keeping my baby. I didn’t quite think about how I was going to take care of a baby. I just knew that I had to. I was already taken out of school for the sexual harassment issues at my current high school. I told my baby’s father, I was pregnant. He continued to live his life, this wasn’t his first child. My mom was disappointed, but still she stayed by my side and did what she could to help. I tried to go back to school. My pregnancy was easy for the first few months nothing seemed different. I didn’t get sick. I didn’t crave anything crazy. Deep inside I felt I could do it. I have watched my mom raise five......

If I Was President

...English composition II Bottom of Form If I were president I would strive to accomplish three major things. First, I would strengthen our educational system; second, I would make certain that everyone has equal and fair treatment in our society; and lastly, I would stop terrorism because we are dealing with a war against terrorism. Our education system in America is not one we should be very proud of. Yes, America does have excellent schools, colleges, and learning institutions, but our standards are not set as high as other countries. For example, our country does not fund our schools adequately. Teachers teach with not enough books, no supplies, or books that are often over 20 years old. How can we expect our children to be up to date with the world’s information if our teaching materials are not new? Often teachers in our public schools are forced to buy text books and supplies for our children with their own personal money. Why do they do this? Because they believe in a good education for all learners. Our country "prides" itself on the quality of education a person can receive here, yet teachers are one of the countries lowest paid professionals. If I were president, I would also make sure that everyone in this country was treated equally and fairly. The 13th Amendment to the constitution did abolish slavery, and the 14th Amendment was passed to counter the black codes, but in reality, discrimination still occurs in every aspect today in America.......
