Spanish was my first language until I started going to elementary school. I struggled so much trying to learn English and keep up with my classmates. By the end of third grade it was looking like I was going to repeat the third grade. With the help of tutors and after school programs I was able to move on. After fourth grade is was speaking both languages, more English due to school, but Spanish in my house. As I got older I began to loose proficiency in my native language. Family would come visit, I began to get nervous talking around them as I knew my Spanish was getting worse. I knew I had to make a change knowing once I began the “real world” or adulthood, speaking fluent Spanish was important especially living in an area where Spanish dominates.
Once I began my junior year, I took Spanish classes as electives. Also watching the news in Spanish with my father after he got home after a long day of work. By the time I graduated I noticed the quality of my Spanish getting better. Now being in the military where you see so much diversity and different cultures, you see how important Language is. While still being in I plan on exceling on my Spanish with the resources provided to me. Even though my Spanish isn’t subpar as of right now, I firmly believe it will be proficient as it once was when I was young. Topic 2.

Person I choose: It’s Not Just Grammar; It’s Clear Thinking, by Douglas Rushkoff caught my attention in view of the fact that grammar is very important in the work place. “In most jobs, the ability to write clearly and unambiguously remains an essential skill’ said Rushkoff. With technology improving at the rate it is work is becoming more dependent on electronics. valuable messages in the workplace are sent through emails, or if a presentation is needed as an example Power Point can be used. If an employer doesn’t have the ability to catch grammar mistakes, or even use proper grammar confusion can be caused between counter parts. Also in my opinion not using proper grammar can come off as very unprofessional.
Self awareness aligns with language and power, with my self awareness I am able to make sure I can get my point across in a respectful manner. Also with this core value I can catch any mistakes I have made before they are seen. Paying attention to detail is very crucial in the work force since the product I produce can be wrong or cause confusion.
