For me, my insecurity and self-doubt has prevented me from doing things that I wanted to try because I was afraid of failing and embarrassing myself. One traumatic episode that is still very vivid in my mind occurred while I was in the third grade, seven years ago. The assignment called for each student to give a speech in front of the class about a favorite country. I selected Canada and did extensive research on the country in preparation for my speech. After gathering my information, I wrote out my speech and also prepared an elaborate poster board. I practiced my speech repeatedly in front of my parents, sisters, and grandparents. I had the speech down cold; I knew every word, every sentence in my speech. I even slept with the speech under my pillow, hoping it would soak into my memory while snoozing. As we were driving in the morning traffic, a sudden moment of fear gripped my throat like somebody was choking the air out of me, but I shrugged it off. Unfortunately, in class, when my turn came to give my speech, I was paralyzed with terror. I gave the first line of my speech as I put on my Canadian clothing and said, “Everyone grab your earmuffs, mitten and scarves because we’re going on a trip to Canada!” After saying the opening line, I stood completely shell-shocked and frightened while all of my classmates stared at me. My next move was out the door, running while crying. I lost all my confidence at that moment. My teacher, Mrs. Nagami came after me and reassured me that I could do it. I gathered myself, dug deep and came up with enough confidence to finish the speech through tears. I learned over the years that I should not let my insecurity overwhelm me because when I do I set myself up for failure. I have not conquered my insecurities, but I have come to manage them in a better way by having more confidence and faith in myself. Over the years, my confidence…

Which substance acts as the best buffer against acid rain?
My hypothesis was correct – milk of magnesia did serve as the best buffer against acid rain out of the 3 substances. However, do I think farmers should use this to protect their crops from harmful acid rains? No, probably not. Although it did end up counteracting the acid, the thickness of the milk of magnesia ended up choking the leaves of the plant. Wherever the solution was poured on the leaves, it would create a…
How did brown v board changed america
The change that the Supreme Court court demanded had not happened overnight. Many counties in many States simply refused to go along with it. Sometimes, the problem of integration was rarely ever done peacefully. The first instance of the policy being enforced was in Little Rock, AK. President Eishenhower had to use a section of his military troops to protect the Black students who went to Little Rock Public High under the experiment of seeing whether black…
