Troy Murphy Jr.

Change is not easy to overcome but I have started to see small differences around me and I have continued to trust others. Christianity is a lifestyle that I’ve learned to adopt not because my parents made me, but because of the positive effects that it has on my life. To me, it is all about knowing and catching my mistakes so that I can improve on myself daily and become the best person I can be.

Change is hard, and everyone handles it differently. So if you’re not understanding something or making friends is difficult at the moment, just know that you aren’t alone. Everyone goes through tough times and as Coach Masson always says, “Just remember someone else has got it worse.”

Even though I stopped dancing years ago. Having a positive attitude is one of the most important things that I learned from dancing. Life is like a journey. You have to face lots of obstacles during this journey. The attitude you choose to face those obstacles is very important.

All in all, don't let laziness and procrastination take over and reflect poorly on you as a student. Don’t forget about time and remember to always stay ahead of it. Don’t forget to take time for yourself either.

Being vegan has allowed me to become more independent. I used to come home every day with food ready for me at the table, and the second I stepped in through the door I could smell my mom’s delicious food. Although I miss having cooked food ready to come home to, I started looking forward to cooking for myself. I still eat some form of the foods I was raised with, but I have adapted them a bit. I have developed a skill I think all of us need to live a sustainable life, I learned how to cook for myself.

To me, life is like a sine graph, it goes up and down and up and down again, but the range is always from -1 to 1. Life may not ever exceed 1, but trust me, it won’t go below negative one either! Everything will be okay in the end.

I understood that now. Stay true to yourself and keep pushing. Learn to bounce back and not let anyone keep you from doing what you want and achieving your goals. I learned that it's not the falling down, it's the getting up that matters.

My experience with ADD has given me the confidence to keep trying. I believe that ADD does not define me, and although it may be a disability, I never let it stop me. I turn it into an advantage. Even though I have to work harder, I can still find success.

" It is a good thing that people realize the importance of copyrights. However, at the same time, copyrights also limit the rights of translation, which lowers the quality of translation, since the official translators do not understand the native culture in that country. Also, the difficulty of getting copyrights makes the available authorized works very limited."

My art is everything. Through photography, I can capture moments in time and share them with others. I really don’t spend a lot of time worrying about what others think. I realize that I see life most clearly through the lens of a camera and I’m happiest with a camera in my hand. And that is important. Someone recently told me “don’t let anyone get in between you and your art.” That is very wise advice indeed.
