In high school you run into many struggles and conflicts that may bring complications to achieving your goal. But no matter what you still get up and push through all the way to graduation. You sometimes have to sacrifice hanging out with friends or doing things you want to do in order to achieve academic success. With sacrifice comes achievement, they go hand in hand.
In my photograph I represented academic achievement by crossing the finish line in a cap and gown because graduation is the ultimate achievement in high school. The lane behind him is the path he took to get to the finish line. If you’ve ever ran a race you would know that it takes a lot of sacrifice and struggling in order to succeed. I thought the perfect way to show achievement in education was through a race to the finish line. The next step after crossing the finish line is what come in next in your journey of life.
In today’s day, young people get judged by their looks and by their skin color. Teens divide one another in social groups because they don’t look or act the same way we want them to. It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences. Diversity is what brings us together to stand out and accept culture differences and heritage. Through our eyes we see different skin colors to tell us apart but through the heart we are the same one beating heart. Through there is beauty and strength. As we get older we don’t see the beauty in diversity, we see colors and divide one another by them. We tend not to respect how one lives or where they came from. Young people need to be taught that diversity is okay and should embrace it. We blame “Society”, yet we are the society that criticizes everyone and to make it a better place we must change ourselves and what we see through our eyes.
