Kindness is the act of being kind, friendly, and polite with others. Showing kindness can make you feel humane. Acts of kindness such as bringing food with you to share with someone in need. However, kindness not only means being good to humans; you can be kind with the environment and with animals too. For instance, you can protect the environment by not throwing trash on the ground, and for animals, you can adopt a sick animal and feed it well. All these acts are indicative of kindness.
Everyone has dreams. Whether they want to become a scientist or inventor to discover new stunning things, or to be famous person such us a basketball player or a singer. People often think of their future dreams. I have dreams like everyone else, and I’m eager to work on my dreams for them to become true. Furthermore, I have two dreams, one of them is to open an art gallery. For example, I’d love to collect my drawing to display in a gallery. However, I’m afraid to get a rejection from other people, so I have to work hard to attract people. My other dream is to become a successful person. Going to college is my first step to achieve my dream. Then, I’ll study law to become the first Saudi woman who becomes a lawyer. After that, I’ll keep my grades up, because my high grades will help me to complete with other Saudi lawyers. In fact, I look forward to become a lawyer due to misconceptions in our society such as the fact that women can’t work with the law or become a lawyer; this jog just for men. Because, of this, I’ll study hard to change these wrong ideas. Eventually, I’ll do my best and I’ll provide help to poor people, and to women in their cases. When I become a lawyer, I’m sure that everyone in my country will remember me.
People face challenges every day. without challenges, our life would be boring. However, there are different levels of challenges. challenges would change us into another person or even change our life last year, I faced several challenges in my life. For instance, in our country, which is Saudi Arabia women can I drive it is forbidden. When I came to the U.S. I didn’t know how to drive, but i went to the DMV to take the computer test. the computer test is the basic information about the drive rules or laws. So, when I took the test the first time, I failed. I was disappointed, but I didn’t give up. On the contrary, t studied hard and also my father taught me how to drive. Then, I went back to the DMV and retook the computer test; eventually, I passed the test. Now, i have a driving lesson. In the end, to overcome any challenges, you must be a patient and strong person. The things that you want don’t come to us the first time. So we should get a little tired to deserve it.
A field trip is usually a group of people or students who go together to a different place. There are three effects of the field trips. First, improving our language skills. For instance, yesterday, we went to see the Cherry Blossoms with my classmates and my professors. I kept talking with my professors and to visitors to improve my language. Moreover, I asked my classmates what certain words mean if I didn’t know. We helped each other, which is a good thing. In addition, we spoke only English to improve our language quickly. Second, going on field trips helps us to discover a new places. For example, when we went to DC, we learned about many things such as the historical sites in this country, and the history of the Cherry Blossoms. Also, we got a lot of information about Martin Luther King and about Abraham Lincoln. To illustrate, we discovered the best quotes by Martin Luther King, and the spot from where he spoke in front of thousands of people to give his most famous speech. Finally, we had fun with our classmates in that field trip. My friends and I rode a boat in the river, and we took a lot of pictures together. In conclusion, field trips help students to develop their language skills, to discover a new places, and to have fun.
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Salwa. I’m from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I have 3 siblings, I have two brothers, one sister and I’m the oldest one. I’m supposed to be in fourth year in university. However, I took two years off from school in the past to come here in the U.S. to complete my studies. When I came to the United States I had a wretched and choking feeling about it. But indeed, I’ve overcome this feeling. Moreover, I realized that the U.S. is beneficial for me and for other people for studying and working. For example, Educational assistance, and self-employment assistance. The government offers unemployed workers the opportunity to create their own jobs. Also, the government offers people who have a financial difficulty to find education and new opportunities, and they help them with education costs. In addition, an important event in my life was when I came here. It was a turning point in my life. I settled in a new house, and I met a new friend, a new community, and culture. Overall, my first goal is to complete my studying and be fluent in the English language. Living in another country teaches us about the another culture and community.
Have you ever tried to fall in love? Love is variety of different feeling. For instance, you can love your country, your home, friends, parents, and yourself. For me I would like to talk about my love, there is a million reasons to full in love with her. My mom is the person that I love the most in my life, without her, I wouldn’t be here in this life. She always gives me advice. She knew when I really needed to her. She always supports me in my studies. Moreover, when I do something wrong, she always forgives me. I really love her, and I want to be like her in future.
“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.” ― Elbert Hubbar
A true friend is one will always be there when you need someone. She/he will leave all her/his important works but will never leave you alone, especially in your difficult times. A friend is a very special and closest person in the life whom we can share the most important things in life and take support anytime. My best friend is Layan from the school time. We are good friends from the childhood and still continue. She understands me a lot and become always ready to help me in my all bad or happy conditions.
