For my research paper, I want to explore how people born into poverty are resilient and hardworking individuals, opposed to lazy and hopeless individuals. This issue was seen in Jeannette Walls’ memoir The Glass Castle throughout her childhood until she went to New York. During her childhood, Jeanette and her siblings were bullied.

Given all of that information I would have to say that Wuornos experienced a very traumatic upbringing and that it could have affected her immensely. That being said, she fits perfectly within the Trauma-Control Model, which makes me believe that her childhood could have absolutely motivated her to become the person she did.
