This video shows an example of how an adult decides to go back to school due to her brother being convicted of a murder he didn’t commit. Betty AnneWaters is a single mother of two children and works a full time job and decides to go to school to prove that her brother is innocent. Her first step is to get GED and was accepted to law school whish would help her succeed in her goal. This story is based on a true event that demonstrates socialization that college is a great example that be added to the life course of society.
I relate to this video because I’m 27 years old and like many adults I struggled through life because of not having college education. I started out two years ago by attending twilight school and accomplishing my high school diploma. Now, I’m in college and moving towards accomplishing my goals. The reason why I’m in college is so that I can be an example for my children and for my family. It was hard to adapt to this environment due to my responsibilities with my two children and having to work a full time job. At the end, I know this will pay off but meanwhile I have to stick to a time schedule that will help me pursue my goals. College is an example of socialization due to the fact that one has to create a bond and relationships with professors and classmates.
In conclusion, socialization is the process through which people learn the expectations of society. Like many adults, I learned how to adapt and manage my life changes. Socialization is a learning process that everyone goes through to learn and consider new things. Having the support of peers and family is an important source of strong self esteem. Everyone goes through the learning experience by making mistakes and learning from them. Betty Anne Waters, from the movie Conviction is a great example of how adults take a big step in changing their life course by attending college and becoming a supportive adult.
