Influential Global Female Leader

The woman I picked was Michelle Obama, she is a Harvard grad and as many people know her husband is the president of the United States. Before that, she worked with people in communities  in Chicago. She worked in the University of Chicago as Associate Dean of Student Services and started the university’s first community service program. Michelle Obama still wanted to help others especially young adults and luckily when she became the first lady everything started to go uphill.

She started a campaign called Lets Move! to fight for childhood obesity and improve eating styles to a healthier form. Standing as the first lady, her campaign  has been very successful because many individuals look up to her. It would probable be tough to go on with this change if she was just entitled as a corporate attorney. 

Motherhood

I dont necessarily refute or support Dr Sears’s work on attachment parenting. I personally think as a mother you can raise your child however you want, unless it is harming the child. To me, it is a little awkward when a child who can walk and talk are still getting breastfed mostly because I do not think that is very acceptable in this society so it doesn’t seem normal to some people. I also feel that the child would depend on their mother too much and the father would be left out. It kind of doesn’t teach the child to be independent and personally, my parents were from Poland so school wise I had to learn everything on my own which I think helped me a lot and will help me for upcoming challenges I may face.

On the other hand, this attachment parenting probably develops a close personality with the parent, which I think is very good to have in a family. I feel like it is good when a child can tell everything to their parents because your parents will always be there for you.

Gay Rights

I always was and am for gay rights. I found the Australian commercial adorable and it really shows how love doesn’t need to be between a male and female. I think it will be granted in all of America sooner or later, but it might take awhile. I think there will be hate towards gay because from the way some kids were raised as well as I think the older generation are more traditional and closed to new things unlike the generation now.
