Assessment of a hispanic teenager
Identity & Gender
I believe that I'm a typical 16 year old teenage girl. Someone that does get caught up in the some drama every once in a while. A girl that tries to stay focused in school but sometimes does get distracted. I do try to do my best at everything that gets thrown at me. I am a daughter and a sister. I come from a caring and loving family. I believe that I am someone who isn't that close to my family and counts on my friends a lot. I also feel like I am a one of the more outgoing people in my group of friends.
I am a female that attends Joliet West Highschool. At this school girls like me seem to be judged more. Girls here get judged based upon their weight, color, and style. Females always seem to have it harder than males. I feel as if us, females have struggle with trying to look good. Females have to make sure that their bodies are fit or else you'll have someone talking about you in a negative way. I believe females still are not seen as equal.
I feel people can see me as quiet girl in class but once they get to know me they'll change their mind. I also feel as if people see as someone who can easily get annoyed. I believe my family see me as someone who keeps to themselves, and likes to be alone. But I feel like my friends see me as someone who is always out doing something. . I also have a feeling that my friends see me as someone that can get away with a lot and gets basically anything that I want. For the people who don't know I believe they see me as someone that is stuck up just because I do expect a lot from my parents.
Similarities and Differences
Lady Olivia and I are alike because we both have a guy in our lifes, we like to be in control of things and situations. We are also similar because she has to put up with her annoying family member and just like her I have to deal with an annoying family member in my household.
Olivia and I can also be considered different. We're different because we live two different life styles. She can offered to have servants while I just have my mom do everything for me. Olivia is seen as a high class woman while I'm just a middle class girl. I feel as if I'm more wiser than Olivia when it comes to relationships because Olivia seemed to jump right into one while I never did.
