Abia Polytechnic University Social Political and Cultural Influences Discussion

I’m studying and need help with a Social Science question to help me learn.

Throughout the course, you will engage in Discussions with classmates
to share reflections on the concepts of each unit. The Discussions will
also give you the opportunity to learn from the interpretations and
perspectives of your classmates. This course itself will be a study in
different social, political, and cultural influences, as the class is
made up of individuals with varying views of the world. The Discussions
will give you an opportunity to express your point of view. Be sure to
write carefully and respond to classmates respectfully.

To make the most out of your learning experience and earn a good
Discussion grade, you must answer the Discussion question and then
respond substantially to at least two classmates’ postings for each unit
Discussion. You should write at least 200 words in the original post;
then you should post with content and detail on the posts to your peers.
Aim for at least four sentences in each post to your peers, building
the Discussion with references to the Reading, application in your life,
or other information to help share your perspective. With the original
reply and two posts to your peers, this means you will post three times
to each Discussion Board. You will want to use APA format with in-text
and full end reference for citation of sources, which can help to give
credit to the research you used and also to distinguish between your
ideas and the sources.

Topic 1: Recognizing Your Potential

For this Discussion, you will share an experience of overcoming
obstacles and reflect on the power of the individual to act in the face
of social, cultural, or political pressures.

Consider a time when you, a loved one, or a friend had been
underestimated. Perhaps a manager was surprised when your friend came up
with a new solution to a problem at work. Maybe you had been told that
you could not succeed in college due to a learning disability.

What was the situation? What were the external forces, social, political
or cultural that influenced the situation? How did it feel to have
people doubting you, a loved one, or a friend of yours? What helped you
or this other person to overcome the obstacle and uncover their personal

all have those moments when someone tells us we are not good enough.
For me, a moment that comes to mind is when I was 18 and having my first
child. I had just graduated from high school and had high expectations
from my family to start my journey into college and complete a degree
while working full-time. I had more doubts that I did certainties from
others, and so I used this as fuel to eventually prove everyone wrong. I
made the decision to raise my child while working full-time and begin
college when I felt I could take on the task. I was told by my family
and friends that the longer I put off college, then the more likely I
would not attend. However, I have similar beliefs to the culture of
Japan; you can become anything as long as you work for it. (Michaeli,
Lazo, Nghe, Moussavi, Steinberg, 2017). From 18 years old, I
undoubtedly knew that I would someday attend college and complete a
degree. It took me four years to plan, save money, and organize my life
with my child to allow myself the opportunity to begin my college
degree. So here I am doing just that.

I would say that my biggest hurdle that I have had to deal with is my
Aspergers. I have been told from coworkers and friends from my
childhood that I would never amount to anything in life. It seems like
the world shuns people with autism thinking that we are dumb and
stupid. I have also been diagnosed with ADHD and other mental disorders
such as PTSD and Depression. I have been told at work that the only
way I can be a manager is by controlling my emotions. It is like my job
just wanted me to be a robot when all I wanted to do was to break out
of my shell.

Being different has also been able to prove my worth in the
workplace. People have begun to respect me despite my weird traits. I
always show up on time to my work shift and I am always willing to show
up on my days off to help. I guess you can say I am a workaholic.

My late friend was very different as well. She came to work at my
store just after beating cancer. She was judged the same way as I was.
No one took her seriously at first but became respected when she helped
as well. We would always be there for each other, even until she
died. She sadly could not beat this second round of colon cancer in
12/2018 but she would always remain in the hearts of all she met.
