Fave. Quotes – Me and My Community

Today we took a look at who we are, where we’ve come from and how we are gonna make a difference.  Important things our students noted where:

NETWORK – It’s not what you know, its who you know
SELF MARKET – Present your own brand

Moreover, students came up and shared about “Me and My Community,” and this is the phenomenal work they produced, (put together ad hoc, but mix and match responses, their still awesome!) :

TITLES:
“REAL LIFE,” “DRUGS”
“WE’RE AT THE PITS”
“IT ENDS WITH US”

I AM FROM:
“Hard workers and drug workers”
“Dirty community”
“Disorganized and unsuccessful people”
“Police centers and recreational centers”

THIS MEANS THAT:
“People don’t care and don’t have no jobs easy”
“We give up too easily”
“We need to change for the next generation”
“There are negative and positive things in our community”

IT BOTHERS ME TO SEE:
“Our brothers and sisters die”
“Young boys running around with guns”
“People look and treat people horrible”

THINGS WILL BE BETTER IF:
“They get a job”
“They build recreational centers”
“Coming together and speaking up”
“We share our wealth”

HOW? BECAUSE I WILL:
“Help my community by doing whatever it takes”
“Be a social entrepreneur”
“Start basketball leagues”
“Go to the police center and say they need some people down my way”
“Stay on track and keep my mind on point”
“Make a difference”

I’M:
“Adaptable,” “Competitive,” “Confident,”
“Disciplines,” “Driven,” “Honest,”
“Organized,” “Persuasive,” “Risk-taking,”
“Understanding,” “Visionary,” “Entrepreneur”

AND SUCCESS STARTS WITH ME!
