My father protects me through thick and thin just by listening. Listening to my problems and opinion without judging me results to our unbreakable bond. Our bond results to opening up to him. After I graduate from high school, I had a nervous breakdown. I was unsure about being on my own, but when I sat my father down and shared my thoughts he listened.

    I did succeed in making my grades but by the last months of the semester I realize that the stress that came with procrastination wasn’t worth in ad I started working on time management. In high school the words time management are repeated but never really explains. I grew up hating the simple idea of time management, but I have since learned that is means balance. It is easy to think of staying in and doing nothing but studies, but true time management is the balancing the responsibilities you must complete and the things you want to do. This realization has taught me that I can have a “fun” college experience without forgetting the reason I am at a university.…

    My brother told me that nothing ever works when you look at education as something that you have to do instead of something that you desire to do. My brother told me that you are successful if you try, even if the odds do not work out in your favor if you tried then you have done everything you can do. My brother inspires me because he wants to go to college now, but my mother is telling him that it is too late, which I think that it can never be too late for someone to better their life. My brother should have more hopes in life than to look forward to working at Chick-Fil-A for the rest of his life. I am graduating for me and for…

    Besides, mentoring me in my college journey he has also thought me so much about of life in general, little things that help you as you move on in life and seek employment in the real world as Mr. Ukita would say.I can personally say that growing up my parents were not very open about anything that involved sensitive topics such as sex, or even allowing me to express my emotions, it was considered a sign of weakness.

    People weren't always nice, but I never let it get to me and I can thank my brother for that because of him helping me become strong minded. School had a big impact on me though. I found who my real friends are, I realized who was and was not there for me, and I found out which teachers really cared about other students, including myself. I will never forget about one teacher that I met my senior year. She helped me a lot.…

    The only thing that was life changing is that my dad changed jobs from working in Iowa city and being gone all the time, to switching jobs in Clarence so I’d see him more. When I was littler, me and my brothers would get up super early Christmas morning so that we could hopefully open all the presents that were underneath the tree. We would separate the presents and try to figure out what was inside each one, while we waited for our parents to get up. Sometimes we would only be able to open one because my dad always didn't have time to sit and watch us open the presents. We would wait till he came home from work and then open the rest late at night.…

    Even though his father didn’t write his section of the book about his himself, Sampson still learned a lot. For instance, Sampson learned in the later parts of his father’s life after finding and learning about his ancestors on his fathers side, he realized there was no sense in holding on to “cancerous feelings” (138).

The third doctor, Rameck, had his actual father tell his story. From reading through his chapter, Alim Bilal seemed like a good father who fell to the wayside due to drugs.…
