  10. 10. <ul><li>My father came to America in 1981 as a student, coming from Germany after he had spent two years there studying. He went back to the Middle East in 1990 and met my mother, and she came back to San Diego with him where they got married. Ever since then, my mother’s relatives have been trying to come to America as well, and some have succeeded while others are still trying to get a visa. </li></ul>Coming to America
  11. 11. Family Health History <ul><li>I don’t have much of a health history in my family. For the most part, delicious, healthy Arab cooking has kept most of my family tree relatively healthy. My uncle had a problem with his leg when he was young and he used to ride in a wheelchair. Also, my grandmother recently developed Alzheimer’s. Also, my grandfather on my mother’s side had Diabetes and has very poor eyesight. Besides that, my family has stayed pretty healthy. </li></ul>

  25. 25. Health Triangle
  26. 26. Health Triangle PHYSICAL SOCIAL MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL 96 88 91
  27. 27. <ul><li>I am a very active person physically; I try to involve myself in physical activity as much as possible. Sports are a huge part of my life and I enjoy myself playing them, especially the tiring ones like basketball, football, and soccer. I also consider myself mentally adequate, and I believe that education should be a top priority for anyone who plans on succeeding in life. I always try to stay well-versed in current events around the world. Socially, I have a tight group of friends that I don’t venture out of as much as I should, but I love meeting new people and I’m fairly outgoing. </li></ul>

  34. 34. 2010, in Alpine after a paintball tournament
  35. 35. Personal Crest
  36. 36. Greatest Personal Achievement <ul><li>My greatest personal achievement would have to be getting an A in AP English. It was the most challenging class I have ever taken, but I told myself I would do whatever it took to get an A and I did it. I am very proud of this achievement and it was very important to me because it showed me what I’m best at: writing. It also showed me that I can do whatever I set my mind to as long as I’m willing to work hard. </li></ul>
  37. 37. Happiest Moment <ul><li>My happiest moments would probably be the days my little brother and sister were born. They have meant so much to me since they joined the family and my older brother and I were getting pretty bored with just the two of us. It’s always a huge deal when there’s a new addition to the family, and this was special because I have always wanted to be someone’s big brother. </li></ul>
  38. 38. Family’s Greatest Achievement <ul><li>My family’s greatest achievement would be making it to America and establishing a steady lifestyle. When my father first came to America, he was struggling to pay for college and provide for himself. When I was young, we didn’t live in a very good part of San Diego, and money was hard to come by. But my father worked hard and we were eventually able to establish a life in Penasquitos. </li></ul>
  39. 39. What I Can Do Better <ul><li>I always try to help my mother around the house, but I don’t think I do enough. I know it’s very stressful to have four kids, and for about four years she was a single mother because my dad found work in Iraq, and I should really make an effort to help her out when she needs things. Sometimes, she asks me to drive my siblings to places and I always try to make an excuse, when really I’m just too lazy. I should try harder to make things less stressful for her. </li></ul>
  40. 40. One Year To Live <ul><li>If I had one year to live with guaranteed success, I would probably be a daredevil, or an extreme athlete. I always watch TV shows like Nitro Circus where the people in the show do crazy things like jumping into the Grand Canyon or swimming with sharks, and I know I would never have the courage to do that. I know however if I did have the courage, I would have the most exhilarating experiences of my life. </li></ul>

  44. 44. Song That Represents Me <ul><li>Daydreamin’ By Lupe Fiasco </li></ul><ul><li>Lyrics: </li></ul><ul><li>[Chorus] </li></ul><ul><li>Daydream </li></ul><ul><li>I fell asleep beneath the flowers </li></ul><ul><li>For a couple of hours </li></ul><ul><li>On a beautiful day </li></ul><ul><li>Daydream </li></ul><ul><li>I dream of you amid the flowers </li></ul><ul><li>For a couple of hours </li></ul><ul><li>Such a beautiful day </li></ul>
  45. 45. Lyrics (Continued) <ul><li>[Lupe Fiasco] As I spy from behind my giant robot's eyes I keep him happy 'cause I might fall out if he cries Scared of heights so I might pass out if he flies Keep him on autopilot 'cause I can't drive Room enough for one I tell my homies they can't ride Unless they sitting on the shoulders but that's way too high Let's try not to step on the children The news cameras filming This walking project building Now there's hoes selling hoes like right around the toes And the crack heads beg at about the lower leg There's crooked police that's stationed at the knees And they do drive-bys like up and down the thighs And there's a car chase going on at the waist Keep a vest on my chest I'm sitting in my room as I'm looking out the face Something to write about I still got some damage from fighting the Whitehouse, just a </li></ul>
  46. 46. Lyrics (Continued) <ul><li>[Chorus] </li></ul><ul><li>[Lupe Fiasco] Now come on everybody, let's make cocaine cool We need a few more half naked women up in the pool And hold this MAC-10 that's all covered in jewels And can you please put your titties closer to the 22s? And where's the champagne? We need champagne Now look as hard as you can with this blunt in your hand And now hold up your chain slow motion through the flames Now cue the smoke machines and the simulated rain But not too loud 'cause the baby's sleeping I wonder if it knows what the world is keeping Up both sleeves while he lay there dreaming Me and my robot tip-toe 'round creeping I had to turn my back on what got you paid I couldn't see half the hood on me like Abu Ghraib But I'd like to thank the streets that drove me crazy And all the televisions out there that raised me, I was </li></ul><ul><li>[Chorus] </li></ul>
  47. 47. Explanation <ul><li>This song represents me simply because it exemplifies through genius metaphors and wordplay what I believe is wrong with society. I am strongly opposed to the music video culture in our music industry, and how we degrade women so openly with the response of profit. It also represents what I want to become, not a rapper, but someone who will one day have enough fame to influence society positively through spoken word, in the way that this song is doing. </li></ul>
  48. 48. Self Portrait
  49. 49. Future Aspirations
  50. 50. <ul><li>One person that has made a positive impact on my life is my father. He has always taught me to prioritize my life in the way that will benefit me the most in the long run, and not in the way that is dictated by those around me. He also taught me the importance of family, by putting his life at risk to go work in Iraq for four years when we were struggling to make ends meet. I always have appreciated my dad for that; he always put us first and never thought about himself before others. </li></ul>
  51. 51. Dear Dad <ul><li>I am forever grateful for all the </li></ul><ul><li>sacrifices you have made for our family. You </li></ul><ul><li>have always taught me the importance of </li></ul><ul><li>selflessness and individuality, and you have </li></ul><ul><li>definitely made me a better person. When I was </li></ul><ul><li>struggling with my grades, you pushed me to take advantage of </li></ul><ul><li>my potential and helped me understand the importance of my </li></ul><ul><li>education. I feel lucky to have a father like you who cares so </li></ul><ul><li>much for my well-being, when there are so </li></ul><ul><li>many fathers out there that don’t even bother </li></ul><ul><li>to meet their sons. Thank you for having such a positive impact </li></ul><ul><li>on my life. </li></ul><ul><li>Sincerely, </li></ul><ul><li>Omar </li></ul>
  52. 52. Where I See Myself in the Future <ul><li>In three years: I hope to be studying at UC San Diego for some sort of technology or engineering degree. I hopefully will have some sort of job, like a waiter, that will help me pay for college </li></ul><ul><li>In five years: I see myself a graduate of UCSD, on my way to graduate school so that I can obtain a Master’s Degree in the subject I will have a Bachelor’s Degree in. </li></ul><ul><li>In ten years: I hope to be starting a family by this time, living in San Diego close to my parents and siblings who will all have their own lives by then. Hopefully I will be blessed with a wife and a house full of children, with a steady career in technology or engineering. </li></ul>
  53. 53. Life Accomplishment <ul><li>If I could accomplish one thing in life, I </li></ul><ul><li>would want to raise a son or daughter </li></ul><ul><li>that is talented enough to go to </li></ul><ul><li>Harvard or some other Ivy league </li></ul><ul><li>school. I know that it’s too late for me </li></ul><ul><li>to have aspirations like that, but I want </li></ul><ul><li>my kids to have the option to do anything </li></ul><ul><li>they want in life, so that they can live </li></ul><ul><li>comfortable lives and raise grandchildren for </li></ul><ul><li>me. </li></ul>
  54. 54. Media Awareness
  55. 55. <ul><li>The media effects pretty much everything around us. I myself try very hard to not be effected by the media, because I believe there is nothing to benefit from it. Most of the time the media tells us to dress a certain way that doesn’t suit our personality, so I try to steer clear of that. Obviously the media has had some great effects recently, by broadcasting national disasters as they happen. Technology in the media has helped us in many ways. But I believe ultimately that the best thing to do is to stay away from the influences of the media as much as possible. </li></ul>
