Jacquelin's Story

My passion is law.

In my life there have been many bad and good experiences, but overall they have all shaped who I am. These past few months I was able to understand some things I did not notice before. I noticed people getting treated differently because of their race and assumptions. I believed that stereotypes and racism was gone in this world, but I was wrong. When I went to a restaurant with me and my family we were treated unfairly because of how we appeared. From this, I was able to conclude that this world still needs great improvement. This year I’m learning about how history still affects us today and how people fought for justice, which greatly influences me to make a change in this world. In the past people did not have as many resources as we do today. They had to develop ideas and plans to overcome those dark times.

A Note from Mrs. Thomas, Jacquelin's Teacher

Jacquelin is a good candidate for the Education Unlimited Public Speaking Institute because she is committed to be the change in her community and has discovered possible how she wants to contribute to her community. Jacquelin is however a very shy student who is viewed as a role model for her peers and is able to influence them through her interaction and deportmen . Attending the Education Unlimited Public Speaking Institute will further enhance her ability to create the kind of impact she envisions in her future .

I am planning to attend the Public Speaking Institute program at UC Berkeley this summer. I am excited to debate, speak persuasively, and choose an elective that they have. My school does not have a debate class and since this program has it, I am looking forward to it because I believe it is very helpful to use in life. I also feel that I will learn a lot from this experience. It will help me get an idea of what I want to study in college and overall have a job in.

Success! Mrs. Thomas helped Jacquelin raise $2,085
