Over the semester I have grown as a student and global citizen. I have grown as a student by doing my homework and not getting red stamps. I have grown as a global citizen by doing projects that have include the world,and I have been researching about what happens around the world or whats affecting it.To be a global citizen is a person that must able to investigate the world which means to do research in order to recognize certain events. The importance of being a global citizen by recognizing the future events , also to create awareness.
I have investigated the world by doing an English project about one disorder people have. The disorder I investigated was bipolar disorder. I researched about what can happen to people with this disorder and I have seen videos too. My group and I all helped each other but we forgot to do the take action part. By learning about mental disorder I recognize that people with the disorder think they don’t have it and they don’t need help from a therapist or a doctor. Now, I understand to help others with their disorder or find them help.
In my element project I learned that copper is use for electricity. I conducted my research by using the internet, teacher help, and notes. To communicate my project I had submitted it to my science teacher. I also showed a classmate that was sitting next to me to check my presentation if I did it right or not. This element that I had are use for many stuff from cars also for other stuff that can contain electricity.
I learned the most common victim of bonded labour are adults. Generally life as a slave is difficult for them because they need the money for their family. The slave only get paid a little, and instead of the kids going to school to an education they have to go to help get money for their family. Also, they are forced to wake up in the morning and carry heavy stuff no matter what. I felt sad because the kids do have an education and their parents can’t feed them because they don’t have time.
Through my research on bonded labor slavery I found many organization that can help stop slavery. This organization does a fund and petition that I signed. The organization I found was change.org. Some people already donated also had signed the petition. To help stop slavery I had signed the petition as well as my own group.
Over the semester I had grown as a global student researching how people are treated in other countries and what kind of the they have. These skills will give me an advantage in my future by traveling the world and helping people that I can help by the way they live or if they need home then i’ll help them. Something that will continue to grow as a global student is I keep reading books that are exciting or that interest me.
