Miley Cyrus: My guardian angel To be able to solidify a single form of media that has changed me, inspired me, or related to me was quite a challenge in itself. Then I thought about the journey I have been on to get to where I am and to where I want to be. The song The Climb by Miley Cyrus connected with me in a way I didn’t expect. It actually brought tears to my eyes. When you think about all the hard times you have gone through to just be one step closer to your dream it’s a surreal feeling. Every struggle I faced it felt like Miley was sitting on my shoulder as my guardian angel singing this song convincing me that the end goal with make the climb feel worth it.

Hannah Montana: The Movie. Walt Disney, 2009.). A quote that inspires me to push through Kings Point and reach my dreams. I encourage anyone who ever faced a moment in life where they felt their faith wavering, or they weren’t sure if the struggle was worth the reward to listen to this song. Personally, I think this song really can make you understand that life is more than just bad moments. There will always be those negative and saddening moments, but those moments will always insight something bigger. On March 24th, 2018 in Washington D.C., Miley Cyrus performed “The Climb” at the March for our Lives rally. This is just one more example that this song can touch people going through terrible moments in their lives and push them to come out on top and do what they can to make change. Listening to this song in 2009 was probably one of the smartest things I have done. And I will continue to recommend this song to anyone I think might benefit from it. It’s a song that encourages strength when you feel like you have nothing more to give. It encourages perseverance when you want to give up. It invokes power in you to climb that mountain and reach that view. The Climb is one of the most inspirational pieces of media I have encountered and for 9 years now has carried me through setbacks, failures, pain and sorrow, and brought me one step closer to my

Each one of us has special, gifts talents and values given to us by God to enable us to fulfill His mission for us. It is our obligation as moral Christians and human beings to use those gifts to spread God’s message and influence others. Great books often inspire me. A captivating book can put you in someone else’s shoes and it is always interesting to ask yourself, “What would I do in that situation.” Recently, I was inspired by the epic novel, Gone with the Wind, although Scarlett O’Hara does not always make the most moral decisions, her unyielding courage and indomitable spirit are inspiring. These are Scarlett’s talents and she uses them to get through tough times and help her family. I use my own skill and talents as a good student, sister and friend to strive to be successful in life and take care of those I care about. Executing my talents wisely has enabled me to achieve balance between academics, extracurricular activities and my part time job as a hostess.

...were based off work but now it is based off of succeeding in their “dream” and encouraging each other. My entire life I have always been told to find a dream and follow it but during the difficult times, people stop saying it. They don’t say anything, so at a very early age we were all introduced to music, the one thing that calms us mentally and physically. Music has become a part of my everyday life. A few songs that have helped me or I’ve always listened to are: God’s Not Dead; Temporary Home; Miles and States; Courageous; I miss you; There Will be a Day; God’s Great Dance Floor; You’ve Got a Friend in Me. Each one of these songs has impacted who I am, what I do, events in my life and decisions I’ve made. Beginning with I miss you by Miley Cyrus. The song is about her mother who died, but the deeper meaning behind it is about those who leave you or your life or die and it affects your thoughts daily. In my life, it has to do with not having my mother in my life and the lyrics describe how I typically feel about it. With each big decision or good success in my life, there are few to...

Ivory was the perfect tone this year. Cherry red was one of the biggest surprises this season, the brilliant color appears in many collections, bringing life to them. Last but not least important pink had to be present on the runway, this time with soft tones of light rose.

Positioning and Differentiation with Health Care Organizations

...Positioning and Differentiation with Health Care Organizations Two health care organizations located in the same area are Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and City of Hope Research Hospital, both in Los Angeles. Both facilities cater to and are championed by Hollywood celebrities, so in many respects they are similar. Their positioning and differentiation is distinctive in other respects, however. This paper will examine the positioning and differentiation of both organizations, noting their similarities and differences. Cedars-Sinai can boast that “Many a star has been born, literally” there (“Cedars-Sinai Medical Center,” 2008). Its location, “where Los Angeles meets Beverly Hills and West Hollywood,” ensures that it serves movie stars and other Hollywood celebrities, and this visibility prompts exceptional care (“Cedars-Sinai Medical Center,” 2008). In addition to its star-studded patient list, the hospital is also known for being a teaching and research hospital that has approximately 600 different research programs (“Cedars-Sinai Medical Center,” 2008). Even its Board of Directors boasts such notables as Steven Spielberg and Sherry Lansing, and it enjoys celebrity supporters such as Barbra Streisand, Denzel Washington, Mel Gibson, and others (“Cedars-Sinai Medical Center,” 2008; “Cedars-Sinai Medical Center,” n.d.). Cedars-Sinai’s positioning and differentiation are both related to its celebrity image. It has positioned itself as the hospital to the stars by......

The song also shows that despite the presence of racism in the world, people can live with different races in harmony and even collaborate with one another to achieve a certain goal.

Growing Up

...Growing Up Growing up is like a big adventure. You experience good and bad stuff. You discover yourself, find out what you’re good at and what you’re not that good at. Growing up brings a lot of difficult choices. All of these choices will affect your future. For instance I think the most difficult choice you have to make in the early years is finding out what you want to work with or as when you get older. Because what if you don’t choose the right thing? What if you as young didn’t stop playing piano? Because you were forced by your parents, maybe you could have been a brilliant pianist today. What if you choose a linguistic field of study just to see your best friend or girlfriend every day? Even though you were more mathematical. That’s already two “mistakes” you have made, first of all by not having discovered your talents, because you gave up to quickly and second of all because you prioritized your loved ones way higher than your education. To make the right choices you prioritize a lot of great things to get the result you want. I’m not saying that if you choose the wrong things, you’ll never do the things you like or have the life you wanted. Of course there’s a great chance you’ll end up having a perfect life, but it might just not be the life you expected. All these choices can be extremely difficult, and the chance of you being spot on, in every choice you make, is very low. Growing up is a broad concept. My definition of growing up starts when you’re born...

The Struggle of Hawaiian Soverignty

...In the article called “The struggle for Hawaiian Sovereignty” it mostly focus on how Hawaiians lands and culture have been taken away from companies and tourism. On page two, the author argues that by the 1970’s, urbanization has developed quickly in Hawaii and evictions were notified to the Hawaiians that they must leave their land because companies would be building hotels or homes. One argument I want to make is where is the media plays a role? We hear about Justin Bieber blowing a blunt or Miley Cyrus twerking in one of her concerts. What I am trying to say is that we always hear all these pointless news every day. Many people don’t even know what is going on with our environment such as global warming, and they still buy plastic bottles or using pesticides for their garden. If more people knew what is actually going on with our environment and ways for people to make a difference, maybe our water wouldn’t be contaminated too much. The media does play a big role in our life. Today we hear that government is drilling a hole in a land to find oil, but they never mention who lives there and who is being affected. We never hear about indigenous losing their land or how we are losing our natural resources. Without any natural resources, what will happen to our future generation? In the “Paradigm War,” the author argues that corporate are claiming ownership over plants that indigenous people have used to heal and help the ill. On Page 64, the author argues that “TRIPS lays......
