center for reslience

Center for resilience is  great program that teaches skills to students who may be struggling academically who may have a hard time paying attention, or are hyper in class.it gives them the skills and tools they need in order to be successful students and leader in the classroom. Some of the students they showed had a hard time or were mean and bullies and after they used some of these techniques they became better leaders. I think by using techniques like this to how students there is different ways to take out your anger or stress by deep breathing activities making water globes with glitter, making stress balls. I think this is a program that should be introduced to more schools all around.

president of RIC speech in Alger 110 / Event 1

During the president speech it was set up like a question and answer he would allow students to ask the questions then he would answer. Some of the major themes and topics that students raised concern to were having more parking spaces for people who commute back and forth to school because there are non and commuters end up leaving there house an hour early to find a parking spot they don't end up finding one the they end up 10 minutes late to class. Another big topic was about not having enough advertisement for what The school represent they are known for their teaching program but students felt like it isn't advertised enough.  Also being inclusive with students who may be are of the LGBTQI community there was concern from a student about not having enough gender neutral bathrooms for people to use. A major topic was making teachers aware of students with learning disabilities giving them training on how to better work with them during the class time without breaching that students confidentiality. Finding a convenient location where all students who need extra time can go and instead having to walk on the other side of campus to do their tests. last big topic discussed was inclusiveness with student parents there a concern about not enough events that specially include bring your family on the flyer it makes student parents unwelcome and uncomerftable to go to events. I think the president did  a very good job responding to each individual students concern he kept saying they are in the process of looking at each individual issue they have a massive strategic plan they are now creating in order to get the changes into effect. I believe there will be change because he does seem to really care about making a great community on campus. This kind  reminds me Of youth In action where every students wants their voice to be heard and their concerns to be addressed and changed; just like the students at youth in action they go to the program because it a safe space where they can engage in conversation with their peers about concern in their community that they may want to see changed.

election 2016

My question is why was Donald trump chosen as  one of the candidates?
what makes me shy away from voting is because  I am not well informed on politics I have not much idea how it works. I am very aware of the issues going on in the world that need to be changed  there is  so many issue that go beyond words. For the candidates I am well aware of each of them in my opinion Donald trump is the most outlandish, racist, sexist person I have ever seen the words that come out of his mouth are disgusting and outlandish, he is more focused on making Hillary look bad. She has flaws and has made mistakes but to me she is better equip mentally to be a president. I don't like to get to much into it because the thought of him becoming president makes me not happy.
 This election alienate me because one of the candidates Donald trump I just do not like. I know the only way to change this so his doesn't win is to vote. stuck in a position where I do not know what I am going to do.
What is going to happen to the future of are youth?
Will this election change possibility of low income students not being able to go to school?
What happens to those with out health care?
