About me:

My name is Daniela Moncada and I am from Honduras. I am a third-year student at Champlain College St. Lambert studying Tourism. I am loyal, honest and compassionate. I know 3 languages which are Spanish, English, and French. I also like to cooperate when needed and I can cook. If I had unlimited time to spend on developing skills those would be learning a musical instrument, being more creative and volunteering more. The problems in the world that make me upset is Trump and his racism which have caused many riots, terrorism, poverty, and corruption. I sometimes like to work in groups but it depends on the people in it but I also like to work alone since I am a hard worker and I know how I work and what results for me.

This Forbes Article from September 12th 2017, written by Nathaniel Parish Flannery covers many topics, all somehow related to Trump's immigration laws and wall to ban central Americans to illegally immigrate to the country. Lack of opportunity, low economy and violence are pushing residents of these countries out of their homes on a search for a chance at a better life. Stopping immigration from these countries is letting these poor people in the worst situations and keeping them from being the best versions of themselves in a country where they have opportunities and a real future.

Coral reefs are not only to be looked at, they contain a large variety of species in which we humans use as our source of protein and as a source of our medically active compounds.

Examples of diseases would be black band disease, white band disease and other band related diseases which are a type of fungus. Climate change is the largest cause of the loss of coral reefs.

David Bell wrote for CBC News on August 30th 2017 about 3 police officers being blamed for kidnapping and assaulting a man who allegedly had important information on a subject that they were investigating. Other police officers say they are completely behind the three charged officers and defending them. The real problem here is that if the people charged for these crimes were not police officers, no one would support them like that and they would probably get in much more trouble. I believe this source is reliable because CBC news is a reliable news source.
