The Help (2012), as directed by Tate Taylor, is a story of African American servants in 1960’s Jackson, Mississippi and their feelings towards the people they worked for. The film is narrated by the convincing housemaid Aibileen Clark (Viola Davis) and follows the story of a hometown writer Eugenia 'Skeeter' Phelan (Emma Stone) and the roles they both play in a publishing a truth-be-told testimony about the treatment of African-Americans in Jackson.

During her first weeks at Princeton she had realized that Princeton had few women students and fewer Latinos. She was highly intimidated by this and it made her nervous to reach out in class, if she needed help. I feel like coming from a community when mainly everyone around you is alike in some sort of way made her understand that she wasn’t living in her old world anymore.
