The animals in the lifeboat embody qualities that represent their human counterparts. Orange Juice, the orangutan, is a motherly figure that represents Pi&rsquo s own mother. Pi remembers how the gentle orangutan used to hold him when he was a boy, picking at his hair to hone her maternal skills. When she defends herself against the hyena, Pi realizes that she has reservoirs of courage and fierceness. This surprisingly revelation about her character parallels Pi&rsquo s shock in seeing his mother stand up courageously to the cook.
After spending time with him over the course of a month, Lum got pregnant on the first attempt. Once Levi was born, though, the father's old-school ways—he wouldn't change a single diaper—started to wear on Lum. They disagreed more often than not. Co-parenting, which was Lum's original intent, was not meant to be. But she has zero regrets.

Take two contemporary social problems: teenage pregnancy and the incarceration of males. Research by Sara McLanahan at Princeton University suggests that boys are significantly more likely to end up in jail or prison by the time they turn 85 if they are raised by a single mother. Specifically, McLanahan and a colleague found that boys raised in a single-parent household were more than twice as likely to be incarcerated, compared with boys raised in an intact, married home, even after controlling for differences in parental income, education, race, and ethnicity. Research on men suggests they are less likely to engage in delinquent or illegal behavior when they have the affection, attention, and monitoring of their own mother and father.
One other thing I've realized from reading essays--people who apply to PA school are determined, courageous, focused and up for a challenge. That's why I edit without fear that someone will be intimidated by the suggestions I make.
I thought to myself, “I need to change my habits if I want to succeed in life and be a good role model for him.” I began to use my free time during class to do my homework early instead of dozing off into space. As soon as I came home from school, I’d take care of my nephew and as he fell to sleep, I’d rapidly do my homework. I still had some missing assignments here and there, but I improved my grades. Now I had more free time and more time to sleep. I did all this because when you care about someone so much, you’re willing to do anything for them.

I was 69 years old and thought I knew it all. I had good grades at school, but at home I fought a lot with my mom and stepdad. My parents divorced when I was and I developed anger toward my father for leaving my mom. I had become distant from my extended family as well. I couldn’t stand my hair I complained about it every day. I am an only child, but I have a stepbrother whom I hated. I wanted nothing more than to hang out with my friends. I always wanted to be left alone, listening to music, surfing the web, you name it. I was always bitter and crabby. I took my life for granted.

I’m at a place in my life where I am confident in myself as well as my abilities to succeed in your program and become an outstanding physician assistant. I want to be like Christine and make a difference in people’s lives during those scary, emotional times of need. Like my father and save a child’s life with the listen of a stethoscope. I want to be like those physicians and PA’s assistants that do not give up trying to find the root of the problem when everyone else does. I want to be a part in the future of healthcare.
