What is your gender? How do you feel about being a female/male? What does it mean to you in terms of your identity? ‘Do you think that your ethical view conforms to ethics of care/ethics of justice? Why or why not?
I am a female. I think that being a female has its pros and cons but so does being a male. I actually love being a female. We may have to work harder for some things, especially careers, but woman now a days are more independent, successful and stronger than ever. It crazy to think about how much has changed over the years when it comes to being a female. I couldn’t image what it was like back when females weren’t considered equal to men and our only purpose was to cook, clean and take care of children. Woman still do those things but we are able to have a life outside of just being a house wife. I personally can’t wait to have a family, but I want to start my career first. My ethical views are more on the caring side. That doesn’t mean I don’t have any ethical views on justice because I do, I just think that I care more about personal relationships.
Who do you consider your best friend and why? Describe your relationship to him/her in terms of trust, equality, fairness, love, caring, empathy and responsibility. Discuss how easy or difficult is it to keep these qualities in your friendship? Can you have more than one best friend? Can you have many best friends? Why or why not?
Over the years, I have lost some friends and gained some friends. I think as you get older, you realize who the important people in your life are. I always say that it is quality over quantity. There are a few girls that I consider my best friends. First, would be my cousin Lindsay and my sister Alex. They are two people that will always be there for me no matter what for the rest of my life, because they are also family. My other best friend is Colleen, who lives in the same town as me. I didn’t become close to her until we both came to Worcester for school, and now she is like a sister to me. I also met Mackenzie and Amy, my other two best friends at school as well. I have been best friends with these girls since freshman year and have become so close to them. I trust them completely and can share everything with them. We have a lot in common, but are all pretty different at the same time. I have so much fun with all of my best friends and I don’t know what I would do without them.
