Self Portrait This is the picture that view myself as. I drew it about year ago.
Future Aspiration One person that has made a huge impact in my life is my stepdad Kurt Debniak. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He brought us to San Diego from Los Angeles where pretty much everything there is ghetto now. He gave me and my family a better life. Without him I don’t know where I would be at the moment. He is important to me because he has done so much for me and my family, he has stepped into the fatherly figure that I was missing for a long time since my real dad never stepped in. In three years I see myself living in San Diego still attending college, pursuing my career. In five years I see myself graduating college and perhaps living with my parents until I go to a Law Enforcement Academy and later become an FBI member. In ten years I see myself living in a condo to save money for a house and probably be married, I do not know about that, but maybe. If I can accomplish one thing in life it would be to succeed in my Law Enforcement and to become the best of the best. It has been my dream ever since I can remember to become an Law Enforcement Agent. That is what I truly want to do.
Future Aspiration: Letter Dear Kurt, You are the person who has made me who I am today. Without you I probably would have been a wanna be gangster in L.A. When I met you, you were always so nice to me and I treated you like crap. The only reason I was like that was because I felt you were replacing my dad. But after years went by I have realized that you were meant to be my dad. We play sports together, workout together everything that a father son would do. You have stepped in into my life and are the father I never had. I never had a fatherly figure who really cared about me until you came in. My life has been getting better and better as I get older. The first step of my life getting better was meeting you, then it was moving to San Diego. I am not part of your blood but you treat me like a son that you never had and for that I truly thank you. I love you. -Your son Michael Ramirez
Media Awareness The media influences everyone on what they buy, what they wear and what they listen to. I know that I have been influenced by the media on what I do and wear. What I wear has been influenced by the media a lot. I see people wearing the clothes that I like on tv and then I want to wear those clothes because I feel that that is who I am. What I listen to is really no influenced by the media because I listen to many things and I do not let the media influence me on the music I listen to. On activities, sometimes I do them because I saw it on the media and that makes me want to do it. But otherwise I do activities because I like to stay in shape.
