About me:

My name is Sarah and when I am not glued to a computer screen, I love to read books. My strengths would be that I have a lot of compassion, I got a good sense of humor and I'm kind of great at public speaking. I know 3 languages and I am pretty good with computers. I'm bad at estimating project workload but I always get it done. The News only focuses on bad things and it's alright because there IS a lot of bad things in the world but they should show us more of good things so that people can see that there is also good in this world.
- Thank you for taking the time to read my bio,
Sarah xoxo

Throughout the semester, most of my research as been directed towards education. This research paper with be analyzing other country’s system and our system and compare them to see what works better and what doesn’t, the goal being to find a way to make school a place where people want to be rather than being a somewhat forced thing. Instead of delving deep into statistics of one way to do it, I will go through a more general idea and talk about 3 issues and ways of fixing them.

This paper demonstrates how feminism is not what a majority of people think. It gives the real and unique definition of the feminist movement and its history. Feminism did not appear out of nowhere and has a unique goal; equality. In this research paper, there are real statistics and proof on how woman are perceived less than man. There are sections about the influence that society has on the youth, the arranged marriage, the economic wage difference between a man and a woman for the same job, the rape culture and the need of men in the movement.

The goal of this assignment and research is to provide a general understanding of police brutality in America. The utmost objective of this is to give an intricate view into how the police, over the course of the years managed to acquire such force and authority, how African-Americans have not had their voices heard and are sometimes less likely to speak out due to possible repercussion by the side of police and finally to observe the solutions to a problem currently affecting millions in the United-States.

An article posted on the “Women’s Agenda”, written by Rob Sturrock, on November 1st, 2017, discuss how men can be involve in the feminist movement. Some may ignore the fact that we need males in the movement but most agree that having males by our side will only make things better. Feminists are only looking for equal rights and not superiority so why not work together?

Drones; the Joy of Prisoners? Jail always had a bad reputation on drugs. On TV shows like Orange Is the New Black, we can see that people inside prisons can still have access to drugs. It is the same in reality and might be even easier now. As you can read in this post, there will be an example in Quebec from Montreal Gazette’s article, in the United States from The New York Time’s article and in the United Kingdom from Independent’s article. Drones are mostly made to observe a view from high up but now, they can be used to do contraband into prisons.

The Gap between Two Worlds Have you ever heard about economic imbalance? If you did, then you will find in this article some propositions about what we could do to change that. If you did not, then today you will learn something important. The economy seems to be growing but the thing is, it isn’t for everyone. The rich get richer while the poor get poorer. For a common worker, you could work your ass off but still would not get paid for what you did.
