    My little Brothers Birth
    I did not know my mom was pregnant at all. She simply went missing for about a day or two, when we asked my dad where she was. He said she gave birth, and all I said was "Okay." Now the reason why II said that was because I did not know what "Give birth meant".
    Later on we met her in the hospital and that Is when I saw my little brother for the first time.
  • Learning about my friends culture

    Learning about my friends culture
    My friend group with a different kind of way of living. Her parents where more liberal and out going, while mine were more conservative and strict. I didn't understand how her parents can be so trusting. Then I realized that I have to keep an open mind, not everyone is raised the same way or have the same views you do. My parents and her parents for example, they both have different views on how to raise their kids, but that doesn't mean they love us any less.
  • Budgie Star

    Budgie Star
    I had a pet budgie bird named Star. She had a yellow head and a blue body. She did not trust me at all. It took sometime and a lot of time out of the cage but eventually she trusted me and always came to me when I let her out of the cage (which was when I came home from school) she stayed by when me when I did my homework and when I ate food. What I learned was that patience is a virtue and I had to be patient and gentle for her to trust me.

    During the summer of 2015 I was riding my bike with my cousin, who was riding my scooter. We saw a Yorkshire running around in the neighbors house.

It turns out he was lying but I believed him, the dogs owners where looking for him. Good news they found the dog a few days later. Lesson is don't trust everything people tell you.

    The "Stereotype problem"
    One of the moments where I believe I showed that I was principled was in 7th grade. My classmates and I were learning about the attack of 9/11. There was on girl in my class who wore a hijab. A I heard a few ignorant boys call her a terrorist. I asked her if she was 'okay' and she just shrugged and said that she was used to it and just let it be. But I found that kind of behavior unacceptable and I couldn't 'just leave it alone', so I told our History teacher.

    Grandma

    I believe I was most caring was when my grandmother was sick. Her kidneys were shutting down and she was constantly taken to the hospital. She wasn't able to get around much and do the things she used to. So every weekend I came over and I did some chores. I would wash the dishes, organize the laundry and sweep the floor.
