Anna Kingsley, was born Anta Majigeen Ndiaye in Senegal, West Africa in 1793. She helped establish some of the communities in modern day Jacksonville and Orange Park, Florida. Daniel L. Schafer, Professor of History at the University of North Florida, spent nearly twenty-five years researching about her life. Early accounts of her life are based on history memorized by a griot, the oral historian of the village, who passes down the historical accounts through generations. “Mamadou Diouf, a Senegal Historian, speculated that at some point Anta Majigeen Ndiaye may have been recognized as a child of royalty and received special treatment at the time she was sold” (Schafer, 2003, p.18). However, early aspects of her life lack written evidence and the accounts of her being a “royal princess” are just legends. Anna Kingsley overcame the adversity of slavery because, she gained her freedom, she became the respected wife of a plantation owner and she was a successful business woman. By all accounts about that era, her story as an African slave to matriarch of the Kingsley family is a remarkable story.
In April 1806 Anta, her mother and the others from her Wolof family village were captured, rounded up and herded to the coast for sale into slavery. She survived the transatlantic crossing, called the “Middle Passage” to Cuba and then was later purchased by Zephaniah Kingsley. “Some would call this luck because Kingsley, unlike most American slave owners and traders, considered slavery more of an economic and temporary condition and completely unrelated to race” (McTammy, 2000). In late October, Kingsley and Anta sailed into Doctors Lake and docked at Laurel Grove, today known as Orange Park. Also, Anta was already carrying her first…...

Some things that make her such a good photographer is her ability to take risks. She goes above and beyond the average expectations of a picture in order to truly capture her viewers attention. Whether it be from the shoot with John Lennon’s naked while his legs were hugging onto his wife, all the way to the highly controversial photo of Miley Cyrus’ bare back, which many believed was only used and released for media attention and to make sales, Anna-Lou Leibovitz’ photographs are eye-catching and different from the norm of what society always views in photographs. Another reason why Anna-Lou Leibovitz is such a good photographer is because of the fact that she has a good sense of vision and sensitivity. Lebovitz’ vision is something that truly makes her, because she always knows exactly how many items, and which items to place on a set for a photo shoot.

...Ethical Behavior- Whenever an individual is hired to work with children, that person is expected to abide by a certain code of ethics. This individual is to abide by the law of the land as well and the ethical standards set forth by the educational institution that has hired them. For many in society it is very clear the type of ethical behavior expected from an educator. They are expected to educate, respect, and above all protect children while they are in their care. Whenever a sexual scandal at is schools is heard about is very difficult for the community. Many individuals will have strong opinions about who is to blame and who bears responsibility for the unethical behavior. Many will feel that the blame is on the adult in the situation, some will feel that the teen bares some of the responsibility. In our paper we will analyze the story of Saul Noe Lopez, Girls varsity soccer coach, at Mira Monte High School in Bakersfield, Ca. Lopez is accused of having a sexual relationship with a member of his Varsity soccer team, who is only 16. The relationship was discovered when Lopez used a Kern High School District vehicle to purchase condoms at a local gas stations, before taking the teen to his home ("Bakersfield Now", 2012). The clear issue here is the statutory rape of a minor. Whether the relationship was consensual is beside the point in the eyes of the law. According to “Bakersfield Now” (2012), Mr. Lopez has worked with the KHSD since 2006. His job as migrant...

...Anna’s Serious!!!!! One morning day, Anna woke up in her biggest and a most wonderful room that a girl can ever have. It was a bright shiny morning and Anna couldn’t wait for her next trip to the library where she can pick hundreds of books to take home with her. That was her favourite hobby, reading books. Not only she liked reading books, but she was one of those people who like to study for tests and go to the library during lunch periods and study all day. Her only disadvantage was that no one wanted to become friends with her because everybody realized that she was a school freak and a “teacher’s pet” so students called. Some people like her because she was the richest person in the whole town!! Anna didn’t approve to that one bit. Her only friend in the world was Sophie McDonald. She was born as a foster child and was delighted to become friends with a rich and the smartest student in the school. They’ve been friends ever since. Ever since that day Anna met her new friend, she would wake up every morning at 9:00; she would meet Sophie at the library and read. “Darling! “ “Your breakfast is ready!” her mother shouted. “I’m coming!!” Anna shouted. Anna rushed to put her clothes on and ran downstairs to have her breakfast. “Are you going to meet Sophie again!?” “You see her every weekend and we never get to spend time together.” “You know....a daughter and a mother hangout.” “Mom, I told you, she’s like my best friend in the world that I know where I go to high...

Anna Freud

...Running Head: ANNA FREUD Anna Freud Anna Freud Selecting a woman that made significant contributions to the field of psychology between the years 1850 and 1950 is not an easy task as there is more than one woman who made significant contributions to the field of Psychology. Out of those talented women Anna Freud, overshadows her colleagues. Anna can be considered to have a fascinating background, which influenced her later development of unique theoretical perspectives. Her father, Sigmund Freud famous for his multiple theories about the mind he is regarded as the founder of psychology probably influenced her following his footsteps and being interested in psychoanalysis, in particular, in child psychoanalysis. However, her recognition as the founder of child psychoanalysis was not just given to her for being her father's daughter. Anna Freud earned it by contributing to the field of Psychology with the many roles she played in her career as teacher, theorist, healer, leader, idealist and writer (Coles, 1992). Anna's contributions to psychology not only help to contribute to the development of psychology but helped improve many lives. Anna Freud was born in Vienna December 3, 1895 her parents Sigmund and Martha Freud. Her father considered her a blessing; conversely, she did not develop a close relationship with her mother it appears that she considered her nanny a genuine figure in her childhood. Anna considered she was boring and did not get along with her...

...Anna Freud Kim Debyah PSY100 08/27/13 Anna Freud, the founder of child psychoanalysis, was most noted for her work with children and the concept of children undergoing analysis began her career under her father’s wing. She grew up in the household of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychology. Under his wing she grew a deep attachment and love for him and the field of psychoanalysis. Most of her life was dedicated to her father and his work, where he left off she picked up and made it her own and child analysis her specialty. Anna never married nor had children. She was her father’s constant companion, his colleague, and his nurse during the final years of his life. After her father’s death her career flourished. She published several books and journals of her own and continued some of her father’s work. She more or less followed her father’s strict rules as she was taught but expanding where he didn’t have the opportunity. Anna, the youngest of Sigmund Freud’s six children and the only one who became a psychoanalyst, was born in Vienna December 3, 1895. Freud’s mother was more attached to the other children which left Anna with her father most of the time. Even right after her birth her mother went on vacation for several months leaving not only Anna in the sole care of the nanny Josefine Chihlarz but the two other young siblings. Anna was extremely attached to Josefine and was quoted saying she was ‘the most genuine of my childhood” (Freud,......

Anna was very close with her father, Sigmund Freud but not as close with her mother, and had strained relationships with her siblings, which was the five of them.

Although her education came from them he and his associates taught her the majority of her learning experience. After advancing in high school, Freud taught as one of the elementary schoolteacher, which she began interpreting a little of her father’s work into German while enhancing her curiosity in psychoanalysis and child psychology. On the other hand, Anna was very motivated she was inspired by her father’s work because she was destined into transpiring to be just like him.

Anna Karenina

...Anna Karenina Anna Karenina is a novel by the Russian writer Leo Tolstoy. It was born in the society where capitalism was developing and shifted from the old society to the new one in the late-19th-century feudal Russia, but the society wasn’t out of the shackles of feudalistic ideas. It describes the tragic story that the noble married woman called Anna fell in love with a young man, who is also an aristocrat in the aristocracy, and finally they break up and Anna kills herself. Tolstoy's style in Anna Karenina is considered by many critics to be transitional, forming a bridge between the realist and modernist novel. Anna married socialite and but she has affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. The story opens when she arrives in the midst of a family broken up by her brother's unbridled womanizing—something that prefigures her own later situation, though she would experience less tolerance by others. Vronsky is eager to marry her if she will agree to leave her husband Karenin, a senior government official, but she is vulnerable to the pressures of Russian social norms, the moral laws of the Russian Orthodox Church, her own insecurities, and Karenin's indecision. Although Vronsky and Anna go to Italy, where they can be together, they have trouble making friends. Back in Russia, she is shunned, becoming further isolated and anxious, while Vronsky pursues his social life. Despite Vronsky's reassurances, she grows increasingly possessive and paranoid about his imagined...

Anna Deveare Smith

...Afsara Kelline Mir April 1, 2011 Period 4 Anna Deveare Smith has meshed together many untold stories of victims to racism, bias and prejudice. Though we might perceive this line of work to be her attempt to unveil the truth of the conflict in Crown Heights, I believe that Smith retold the stories that reflected prejudice, racism and bias in Crown Heights, not to seek who was wrong or right in Crown Heights, but to uncover the deep-seated hatred that occurs in this country. The truth may never be revealed but the audience is able to understand that the reasons for the rage in Crown Heights are more than just the Gavin Cato case of Yankel Rosenbaum’s murder. Anna Deveare Smith’s method of finding the truth in peoples stories lies in their syntax. The stutters and the “um’s” give the audience a better understanding of the character because in those stammers and pauses we, even for a moment, see some truth. Although it may help us understand where people are coming from, we still have no definite answer for why things ended up the way they did in Crown Heights. For example, in the monologue titled, Static, a Jewish woman says, “ I saw a little boy in the neighborhood, who I didn’t know and who didn’t know me—not Jewish, he was black and he wasn’t wearing a yarmulke because you can’t—“. The pauses in this particular monologue tell me that this woman is trying to watch what she says. In the times of hatred between Blacks...
