It is very important for people to remember that anger is powerful. So is selfishness along with cruelty. However, kindness overpowers all. You may think your kindness makes difference for other people only, but it doesn’t. what comes around goes around, and your act will return you the most important reward, which is knowing how much you just helped someone in need. You feel satisfaction knowing that you might have saved someone day, week, or even life. In our daily life, I think we do something kind for anyone without thinking. Actually, someone did something for me that made my day, even made my heart smile all that day. One day I had a quiz and I wanted to study outside so I went to Starbucks and usually I pay all the time with my phone, so I didn’t bring my wallet. I ordered my coffee and the girl who made my coffee gave me my cup I told her I pay with my phone, and she told me we can’t, this process doesn’t work. Then I told her I am sorry I don’t have cash, let me call my husband so he can bring me some cash. But She refused and she insisted that I should take my coffee and go to study. This was so kind because she didn’t know me; she saw me with my books ready to study and she did something unusual. Even more, when my husband came to pick me up I gave her the money for the coffee, but she rejected with a big smile on her face, and she finished her words with “you deserve it, darling “. She didn’t know that she made that day full of happiness to me, and the happiness continued to the next day yet. Also, I got a full mark on that quiz. So thank you for your kindness and your words. Finally, kindness should come automatically. No matter how small, an act of kindness never gets unnoticed. We can make this happen and do something kind today.

Throughout my life, I have experienced many challenges. However, there are different levels of challenges. A challenge could be something as simple as making a decision. It could be also accepting a total change to one’s way of life. When one leaves their country and home for somewhere new, hopes are often high about where one is going. But moving into a different culture and surrounding is a challenge to any person who faces it. I faced this challenge myself, moving away from home to try to finish my education. Nothing would ever prepare me for the choice I had to make. In fact, to be a mother of three children and be responsible for them, and study hard also is challenging to me; besides I am in a new country, a new culture, and new people. On the other hand, having this challenges in my life has helped me to contribute to who I am as an individual, a mother, and a student. My life experience has taught me to make better decisions, embrace new challenges in my path, and contribute positive methods to ensure success in my life. Finally, without challenges, life would be trite and boring. I believe that if I dream it I can achieve it. Some people have always told me “what does not kill you makes you stronger”, and I have taken that saying and learned from it.

The cherry blossom is without a doubt the start of springtime in Washington DC. We were lucky that our school organized a trip as an important part of our study. Because I know this kind of trips can help a lot with my studies, I was so excited about the trip, and so were my classmates. Our trip to DC was successful to me. I had the chance to see a lot of statues and monuments. I love them so much because they describe accurately the moment that certain events happened. Also, I was able to develop my hobby, photography. On this trip, one of our professors gave us a mission to interview different people, and this was fun and encouraging. Because we had a chance to meet a new people and talk with them on different topics and without a doubt, this will help me to improve my language and discover new vocabulary. The last part of our trip was the most beautiful inspirational part. The last part was to see the cherry blossoms and Martin Luther King’s memorial. This place had the most effect on me. The ability to see how a tree gift can spread life, peace, and respect is amazing. That taught me the values of respect between the countries in a simple way. There is a wall that contains the most inspiration quotes inscribed on a stone. They reflect the struggle for freedom, equality, and justice. Finally, trips give me a lot of knowledge, a chance to sharpen my skills, the confidence to do a new thing, and the most important, fun. I am looking forward to another trip, and another discovery, with me professors and classmates.

A good movie is one that will make you take a look at your life and make a change. One day, I woke up unusually early, and I was bored. I made a cup of coffee, pulled the remote of the TV, and I started to look for something. Finally, I found a movie just started. The movie described a woman who discovered she had an illness and she would die after six months. Then she decided that she would change her life completely, she would live every moment of her life. Before that, she was serious and worked hard without joy or happiness. The movie thought me a lesson that I need to live my life in a good way and enjoy every moment without regret for anything, and that’s is important. I learned that life is short live it well. We need to live our life and risk it all, take some chances, take the fall. Take your time, no need to harry or worry. In the end, the most important thing, when you on your way to looking for a life do not forget to live this life. The movie is “The last Holiday” I really recommend to see it, it’s such an inspiring movie.

Hello everyone! I would like to introduce myself. My name is Basmah I am from Saudi Arabia, I am a mother of three children; they are my life. I came to the United States two years ago. The best thing that happened to me in my life is to have my kids. The second one is that I had the opportunity to come to the U.S and get chance to study and finish my degree. Undoubtedly, it’s an outstanding chance. So I need to work hard and do my best to finish what I wish for. Recently, I was inspired by my professor, she never stopped learning and taking courses, even though she teaches, she still has the desire of learning more. Of course that inspires me to be ambitious and have a commitment to learn no matter the age or the time. If you have the desire and commitment that’s enough to succeed. Finally. I hope that I can be like her one day following my dream one and another in the future with joy and happiness, and also with satisfaction of what I did and be proud of it. Thank you professor for the terrific inspiration.

If I found a genie who can make my dreams come true it would be amazing. My first wish is for us to be able to cure cancer because there are a lot of people who are suffering from this disease, and also their families and friends. My second wish is the ability to travel through time at will. The reason for that is to be able to see my family anytime anywhere. My last wish is to be able to look into the future one day ahead all the time. That would help me and give me the knowledge to learn from my mistakes and focus on my strengths.

For that reason, I fell in love with DC. It is full of energy, sounds, and historic places, and also the White House. What I like about this city is the buildings. Undoubtedly, they are old and historical. This city is full of museums, all kind of museums. In fact, yesterday we had the chance to visit an important place called the US Capitol.

friendship-quotes-696x392Friendship is an amazing relationship. My best friend is my sister Abrar. She is so kind, charming, and caring about me. She’s someone who knows how to make me smile through my sadness. She is someone I can trust with my life, and I can tell her anything without fear of judgment. She would defend me anytime. I always love that she tells me the truth no matter what. She has the ability to change me in a good way, but somehow I’m still myself. Sometimes she acts silly or stupid just to make me laugh. I love our friendship; it’s something I am so proud of. Our friendship is strong, special, and respectable.  I really miss her and being around with her so much. Indeed I can’t live without her, and I hope that I can see her soon.

I have been to many places in the world, but my favorite place is where my family lives no matter where. To have a home full of loving people, and that is a blessing. To have people who support you when you are devastated is incredible. My family always supports me, they give me hope and they encourage me all the time. I am thankful for all the technological innovations now because I can call and see my family anytime anywhere.  It is amazing how these innovations make our lifestyle easy. With one touch I can reach them and be able to communicate with them. I miss my favorite place. I spurn the idea of living very far from them, even though I have fun here and I am happy. But the idea of being far away from my parents and my siblings is devastating. I made a vow that I will make my family proud of me. My intuition is I will try to visit them in Summer, I hope I can do it.
