Giving Back

JennaSmithWe as human beings need to look out for each other. There are a lot of minorities in the U.S. and people from these minorities have stepped up in order to give back to the society. The minorities in the U.S include black Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics and Latino.

The Chinese American Hero, Morgan Chu is a well-known name in the world of law. He is an intellectual property attorney and is also one of the first Asian Americans to lead a major law firm in the U.S. He is also included in the list of ‘Top 100 influential lawyers’. He has made a reputable name by winning major cases regarding disputes between big companies like Samsung and Microsoft. He was also elected to Harvard Board of Overseers in 2009 for a six-year term. He has handled some cases without any fee and does what he can in order to give back to the society. He wants to help as many people as possible to receive the justice they deserve.

Another famous minority figure is Maya Angelou. She is an African-American author and poet. Her work has awarded her with numerous honors and more than thirty honorary doctoral degrees. She was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barak Obama in 2011. She has been an inspiration for many women writers and has displayed the life of African Americans. She has done a lot of work in order to make her community better. She has been honored by universities, government agencies and many literary organizations. Her poetry has allowed people to look at how African Americans live and what troubles their women have to face.

Joe Baca is a Hispanic American who has been serving since 2003 as the U.S. Representative for California’s 43rd congressional district. He has received many honors because of the public service he has done. He has received the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President’s Achievement Award. He also has two local parks named after him.

The above three names are only few of the many people who have worked hard and are now giving back to the society, in one way or another. These people serve as living examples for the future generations of the minority and influence them that they too can make a difference in this world if they work to achieve their goals. They will continue to give back to the society in the upcoming years.
