    Ominira

    The word ominira means freedom or liberation in the language of Yoruba, and for most of my life it felt like I never had the chance to experience this, and it slowly ate away at my conscious until I couldn’t take it anymore and I had to break free. I was sick of always trying to please everyone else, never considering how it could affect my future or all the opportunities I have missed out on because my family said that’s not the right way to do things. There is no one way to do things in life everyone has to travel there journey by them self. So here’s my story, my journey for everyone to experience.

    The Day I Realized I Was Reliving My Mother's Life

    The Day I Realized I Was Reliving My Mother's Life

    When I applied for university, it was to engineering programs. I knew my major going in, and that was electrical engineering. It made perfect sense to me at the time—I dedicated all of high school to robotics, and there was nothing in the world I loved more than making things. But there was another thing motivating me, and it took me a lot of soul searching to realize what that was: I went into electrical engineering because it was hard.

    Subbing In

    The life of a substitute teacher is an interesting one. On any given day, you may be required to walk into a completely foreign school, and command respect the moment you walk through the front gates. This can often be belied by the fact that you have a fruit cup packed in your bag for recess, and often have difficulty finding the front office.

    Why All Educators Should Do Personal Development

    Why All Educators Should Do Personal Development

    Recently I was working with a group of young students who were, as students do, resisting doing the task that I, the educator, wanted them to. I began to enter into the familiar dance that anyone who has ever worked with children likely knows well: Kids moving around the room, talking to friends, asking unrelated questions, raising their hand and telling long-winded, boring stories about their friend Carley’s pet hamster who pooped on the floor. Everybody laughs but you—because let's face it kid, your story sucks and I see what you’re trying to do here.

    Arthur Schlesinger, a historian who taught at Harvard University, once commented that when writing history, “objectivity is not neutrality.” One could argue that this is the case with Daniel Walker Howe and the book What Hath God Wrought: The Transformation of America—1815-1848.

    'La Salle and the Discovery of the Great West'

    'La Salle and the Discovery of the Great West'

    La Salle and the Discovery of the Great West, penned by Francis Parkman, Jr. was originally published in 1869. There is an art to crafting a compelling narrative readers want to digest not only with their eyes, but also their minds. This is equally true for historically accurate works as it is for works of historical fiction. There is little doubt, when reading Parkman, Jr.’s writing, there was a mind at work when penning La Salle and the Discovery of the Great West.

Getting admission into your desired college is itself a big accomplishment. You feel like an adult and take life seriously when you enter college life. You focus entirely on your career. You get to know your real friends and you are required to work part-time jobs in order to support yourself financially and become an independent individual.

    Non-Traditional Paths Through the Education System

    Non-Traditional Paths Through the Education System

    Here in the UK, it is the main season when school exam results come out. These are seen as high-stakes exams by both the educational system and the individuals taking them. They are thought of as “deciding your future:" what further study you can go onto, which universities you can study at, even what careers you can follow. However, I want to argue this is not the case. There are many futures out there that anyone can build and there are various non-traditional paths through the education system, or via on the job training, that can enable any individual to build a fulfilling life and a future largely of their own choosing.

    The 'High School Musical' Experience

    The 'High School Musical' Experience

    For my final drama class in high school, a few of my friends and I decided to direct the school’s musical of the year. This would start the worst semester of my life, academically and emotionally. We started the semester with the plan to put on Peter Pan Jr. It was an easy musical for the talent level in our class, and we were excited about it. That is, until the issue of the Indians were brought up. This is obviously a very racist depiction of Native American people, and we had a few ideas, some of which were making the Indians another group of Lost Boys, or scrapping them all together. We ultimately decided that we couldn’t do Peter Pan, and it was back to the drawing board.

    Five Ways to Eliminate the Power Struggle So Everyone Wins

    If you are a parent, educator, CEO, or leader of any kind, you may have, at one time or another, found yourself trying to get people to do something that they, for whatever reason, did not desire to do. Has your kid ever thrown a temper tantrum in the candy aisle, or simply refused to put their shoes on? In the classroom, students often communicate resistance by not being engaged, getting off task or being disruptive. In business, it may look like employees under producing, low morale or work dissatisfaction. However it looks, this is certainly NOT where you wanted to find yourself: faced with a power struggle.

    Tips and Tricks for the Engineering Student

    Tips and Tricks for the Engineering Student

    At this point in the school year, my fellow engineering students (or maybe not engineering—maybe students just trying to learn how I study) are probably struggling, or trying to get inspired to get through midterms or finals. Let me start off my saying that I am in my third year of undergrad, in Electrical and Computer Engineering. There are probably a maximum of five females in my class (including myself) at this point in my course. This is all just my experience, especially since the school I attend is very small and very male-dominated—not just in the engineering department. One of the first classes I attended, I was pointed out by male teacher who called me a "little girl," and proceeded to assume my ethnicity and speak to me in Spanish (when I am Filipina, and can't speak Spanish worth anything). He continued to do that for the rest of the year, and I was unable to drop the course as all classes were full. It was a deeply disturbing experience for me to sit through a class where the guys in my class would join in and tease me, calling me, "little girl." At my school, I had to earn the respect of my peers and teachers, in order for me to not get teased or called out in such a manner that would never happen to my male counterparts. I was once a straight A student, and now I was struggling to get a B. My sophomore year, I had to try my hardest in everything, and get the best grades in order for people to stop thinking of me as the person that was constantly struggling in class to actually wanting to be a part of my study group. Here are a few things that I did to get my grades together, and start studying more efficiently.

    No Shame in Going to a Trade School

    For some kids, the stress of whether to go to college is a pressure cooker waiting to explode, especially if they do not want to go. College is not for every kid, but parents often put their ambitions for their children on them. We are well aware of the extent some parents go to to get their kids into a university. Is college for the kid or for the parents? There was a time when the military was the go-to source of jobs for kids, especially African American kids. Parents looked at the military as a way out of the ghetto, which could eat their kids up and spit them out on the nearest-drug infested corner. That seems to have changed somewhat as military standards have changed. It wasn’t so much that parents didn’t want their kids to enlist; rather, it's more that kids weren’t being accepted so readily.

    The Truth About Culinary School

    When I first decided to go to culinary school, it was 2010. I surprised myself in one of my manic phases and did something I may or may not have done in a less impulsive state of mind. I am a second generation Chef, which just means that my dad is also a Chef and has worked in kitchens all of his adult life. My dad did not go to culinary school, but rather, he worked his way through the ranks of kitchens like a true old-school culinarian. If I had to do it all over again, that might have been my choice as well.
