Journal #1 diversity reflections
I am Devon Michael Smith of Anderson , Indiana. currently i am also 18 years of age and a white male. My inheritence comes from southern America and Germany threw the family tree in the 1800s. The family name is the most popular name in the United States of America , or most common to say the least.
The socialconomic situation of my family and i is middle class. We are pretty well off though and feel we have alot more advantages then most middle class familes. Me as a person i feel i am Strong , kind hearted , and wise. Those would just be a few of the deverse traits i have.
Being strong makes life easier but also makes you have more weight on your shoulders then average people becuase many look up to you. It takes alot of effort and time to build your strength physically and mentaly. But you find yourself with alot more respect from people.
In life it pays to have a good heart and to never lose it. You have to be young and dumb , before you can be old and wise. I rather matured very quickly as a child. I have also known my self to think long and hard before making a desicion on something insted of just winging it.
My future role in society is to be a military police after i get my associates degree in criminology. I will serve my country proud with everything going on in this global economy. Then after i will be a police detective or FBI to criminals in line and this great countrys people safe from harm .
Being 18 years old and in college i know what it takes to succed in life. Money is what determines what kind of life you will live and who you meet. It literaly pays to be a hard working motivated person. Life is what you make and it wont just come to you , you have to earn it.
