Final Portfolio

In unit one we were writing a couple of exercises. Sometimes I don’t have anything in my mind what to write. I was thinking before writing is easy but when I have to write about something that time I felt actually writing is not that easy. I realize in this semester. Lots of things we should know about writing. I don’t have enough vocabulary knowledge.
Fear and Cure
My fear is height and audience. I always scared with height. I never ride on the roller coaster because of height. I am always being nervous when I need to speak up in front of lots of people. I don’t know how I will cure my fear. I have no idea about height. For the audience, most of the people say don’t be shy otherwise I cannot cure my fear about the audience.
Freedom Essay
Everyone wants to freedom in their life. I want to be a free person always. I do not like if someone forced to do something that you are not interested in. Freedom is a different meaning for everyone. I am lucky from this side. My parent always gave me the freedom of my choice. That does not mean whatever I want to get from them they just gave me no this not like that. I was a little quiet person when I was a kid. I never bothered my parent or my siblings. When we grew up my parents try to listen to us. We never ask something that they can deny doing that. Also, they try to listen to us.
My parents always there for me what I need for my daily life I got a good opportunity to learn lots of things. My mom always used to tell us if I give you too much pressure to not to do something it will not work for you if you tight something very tight it will break. So she said I give you some freedom it will not spoiled you. When I was a kid that time my freedom worked different ways. They taught me a lot of things. My mom made some rules that time with some freedom. Some rules were very hard to maintain in our life. They gave me freedom but not always. It does not bother me. Personally, I learned so many good things and bad thing a well. I think learning age is when you are a kid because whatever you learned you will never forget it. Day by day you will understand where you should get freedom where not. I think everyone should follow some freedom areas.
My mom always used tells us I give you freedom but do not miss use it. Sometimes too much freedom can be dangerous. We need to understand actually about freedom. I see sometimes around me when people get too much freedom they don’t care about what they are doing is that good or bad. Too much freedom can convict crime and violations.
I think everybody should get freedom for their personal opinion. Everybody has own choices. Some cultural they don’t have freedom of choosing whatever they choose for the women that’s it. Some country they don’t give any chance to women or kid to choose their opinion. I never had a complained about freedom now I know what they taught me in my life that was really good for me. I hope I will be a free person always.

Backpacks v. Briefcases
The main point of Backpacks V. Briefcases author tells about how we judge the people.

In unite two we had to write about our genre. We listed ten types of genre that we encounter in our daily life. Everyone has different types of genre. We have written about sounds commute. We had reading assignment “Shitty First Drafts” what we wrote on reflections Also we had written recipe. It was fun for me because I love to cook one of my daily life encounter genres is cooking. It was easy when I wrote a recipe. I had to choose what I am good at. So I choose to be a hairstylist.
Genre analysis
In this unit I was confused. How I can start with my genre. I am working as a stylist I think this is my skill. What I am doing in my daily life that one I am good at. So I am working with the customers. I know how to do hair style or shaping. I respect my jobs. My client means a lot to me they respect my styling suggestion and recommendation. If you want to express your skills being a stylist this profession has a good opportunity. You can make a good relationship with the client. You make your own personality doing this service. Being nice with the client and understand client needs that will help you make your own customer. Also, the customer will refer to her or his friends and family. I feel so proud of my work when they say someone refers to me.

Serving 4
“On the bus or train sound commute”
I took the F train from Jay Street at 8:40. I live in queen’s just one train I need to board on. This is the best part to commute my school. It was so crowded at the subway station. Some people were waiting for a long time for the train. Different types of people were waiting for most of them as students. There was a group of students. Everyone was talking about their classes about the assignment it was so loud they were worries about others One group was saying “you know my math professor giving me hard time I do not understand his class maybe I will drop this class”. on the other side one men was yelling on the phone he was saying “ I will not do it that happen” he was saying three to four times. When I board the train was full and I got a seat by the door. Usually, I do not like seat by the door because of sounds door always opening and closing time sounds like a dong. Some people were playing games reading books some of them was listening to music to putting the earphone on. I was listening to music and close my eyes.
“Shitty First Drafts”
When I start to write I think a lot of things. I always write more than one draft what comes in my mind. I always need to fix some point in my writing. Later on, I can organize my paper by edit sometimes if don’t like it. The title did not surprise me think it is true. The draft is really helpful for me. I hope it will help me become a good writer.

UNIT 3 Worksheet 2
As a Hairstylist, we provide hair care services for men, women, and kids. In daily life, everybody needs to done hair or nails. Most of the hairstylist does cut color perm and style hair. Some services do not do the entire hair stylist. Everyone wants to look nice by doing something with their hair. People need to do hair styling each and every day. As a stylist, I think the hair style will make your own personality. I was analyzing my profession how my customers are getting there services. Some hair stylist work in the glamorous world some stylist works on beauty shops and hair salon According to the U.S. Of Labor about half of barbers hairdressers and cosmetologists who held about 65, 6400 positions in 2012 were self-employed at the time. Some stylist they own business some working beauty shops and salon.
In this field we have good sides and bad sides both. Basically we have positive sides more rather than negative. Some cases are negative. If anyone has a dream become a hair stylist or nail artist I will say that if you have patience make your dreams come a true than do it. First of all you need a state license then you can work wherever you like to work. As a stylist you can make your own personality you can make lots of money you will get the chance to work with celebrities. This field will not be dropping it down. If you are a skilled as a stylist you will get lots of opportunities. Doing this job you can explore lots of things you can build a great relationship with the client. Day by day you will get popularity for you skilled. Passionate can give you the chance to make your goal. If you are not passionate then I will say it will not work for you. You need to sacrifice a lot of things sometimes you will not like clients feedback. Sometimes you will be very upset you will feel not to work in this field anymore. In this industry, I have been working for 6 years. I love to work in this industry. I have the passion I try to handle a bad situation. Here always you can learn something new to a better way to do anything. Fashion industry always has been challenging for us also changing lots of things each and every day. I love to work with new people. In this field, you will get the chance to meet new people and celebrities.
As a stylist, we always try to be nice to our client. We always try to listen to them what they want in hair design most of the communication tool between stylist and client. Our goal is to make the customer happy. Who wants to make any issues with the client? Sometimes we are having trouble with the client. It does not mean that we are doing something wrong with them. If you do not have it will be hard to work. If customer something they do not like what you did they will be crazy on you. That time you will feel not to work on this profession. Some days you will be upset. Sometimes maybe we cannot figure out what actually clients want. They cannot give us a proper explanation about that style. What have we finished some of them they do not like it but we have done whatever she showed and said us that time they pretend they did not say to do this we feel bad on that situation. Some of them show they know better than us what to do. Some of them they always try to find out some issues we all know customers are always write. I am not saying that why they do that they have rights to say anything. I have no problem with this because they are my customers I have to listen to them. Sometimes they take a long time for the appointment if we are free than fine most of the time we are booked we cannot give extra time because other appointments are waiting everybody has own timeline. We have other bookings as well. Sometimes they do not care about time but we have to care about the time. I found this is the most problematic area for us. Some clients are like that not all of them. Most of the client is nice.
As a hair stylist, I enjoy my work. I am confident, passionate, nice and under stable stylist. As a stylist, I am always proud of myself how much I have learned I can apply on my client. I want to make my client happy and fulfill with their expectation. Whatever I have written here this from my working environment and I checked some sources here.
