Our group has decided the topic we will be presenting about so far. We together chose our topic to be The Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research. I personally have really enjoyed researching and learning more about the foundation considering I had never heard of the cause before this. Although I did not know very much about the cause I instantly agreed with the group’s decision. The Jimmy V Foundation founder Jimmy Valentino not only had a great heart but also had an amazing story to go along with it. We have found a lot of information on the cause and the story; I am really looking forward to putting some of it together and giving others the opportunity to learn more about Jimmy Valentino and the foundation. It has been relatively easy to research our topic because it has a lot of interesting information about it. The Jimmy V Foundation also has its own website, which is very helpful, but there is a lot of background information on the founder himself on many other websites.
The blue collar B, how many people would take the offer? Or in our case the clue collar C? Would I take the offer? Could I settle with an average letter grade for a class in order to get out of any homework or even having to attend the class? These questions rattled through my head while watching the professor present Todd with this mind-boggling proposal. My first thought being, duh, why would I not take the offer? I then thought about it a little more. I enjoy the feeling after at the end of each semester after working hard to get that A or even B. At points throughout the semester I hate the fact that I have homework to do and tests to study for but after working for that grade, I feel an amazing amount of self-accomplishment. I could not settle with a blue collar C. I could constantly wonder if I could have done better on my own. I am looking forward to seeing if Todd takes the proposition. I do not think he will simply because his professor has faced him with a challenge. A lot like me, I believe he knows that he can do better than that blue collar B. It all relies on his ambition to become the best he can.
