One day, I was gazing out the window as the rain poured. My parents came into my room and told me very exciting news; we were leaving for America. Even though my parents thought leaving the country was a good thing, I was conflicted feeling happy and sad because I was leaving
The Unforgettable Moment
All people in the world have fond memories of their lives including me. Among the memories I cannot forget is the first time to step foot in the stadium watching my favourite football team play. At that time I was 11 years old. My favourite team at that time is Selango
This is my creative essay for the Film Program at NYU. The prompt was:
"Introduce yourself. Describe an unforgettable event in your life and how it changed your perception of yourself or the view of someone close to you. This event can be dramatic and/or comedic. The assignment may be written as a
OK, I ask you, is it my fault? Is it my fault the guy leaves his briefcase in the back seat of my cab? It's not my fault.
I get a cheap hot dog at a stand down the block my usual lunch, and I'm still tasting it when the next guy, a business type, taps on the glass and tells me there's a brief
what right do humans have to curtail the life of something that providence has created?
a child has been brought on earth, he or she should be given a full chance to live a life, as God must have planned something for them. While the above arguments may not find favor amongst the modern generation
A Journey to the Future
The imagination gives us the ability to see ourselves in any circumstance, any wild and wonderful scenario, either in the world or out of it. It can take us on the "future trip" of all time, spinning our reality around until it is only vaguely recognizable.
Have you always wanted to see the thoughts of someone else? Well here is your chance. You'll get to see my thoughts and understand what I truly believe. This is a biased paper because, of course it was written by me about my thoughts! Therefore I'll be sharing my opinion on subjects like God, m
An Unforgettable Day

EDUCATION AMIDST DANGER AND STIGMA
I dared not choose but accept. I complained but have pursued. I died but have lived.
It was a dusky room when I heard my parents discussing. “How can we send our child to college? My earnings in driving “habal-habal” is just enough for our daily needs”,
Everyone comes to a point in their lives when they must face their skeletons hanging in the closet. For me that came on Feb 6, 2006, that was the day I faced my biggest skeleton of all. That Monday I stood up in front of 3 dozen people and read a victim statement in court, telling my final words t

I didn't like the feeling of limits. I was use to running, playing, cruising, and exploring. That all changed school was a drag and I was limited to run, to sleep comfortably, to eat raw fish and crab, and limited to be free. It was like a jail cell for me. I am the second oldest out of my two si

The moment. One second it's there then the next it's gone only to be replaced by another one. Something that many of us take for granted.

The value that society puts on life is based on one’s material or net worth; that is the absolute wrong way to value life. Life should be valued on the moments we cherish and the people we love. It’s not about how much money we have or the car we drive. It is a
In Alexander Solzhenitsyn^Òs novel One day in the life of Ivan Denisovich, the strong themes of hope and perseverance are undercut by the realization that for Ivan there is little or no purpose in life. This is not to say that the themes of hope and perseverance do not exist in the novel. There
