The first two line of the third stanza indicates that Keala send her haters “flood” when they were trying to insult her. By “drowning” them, it allowed her to be oneself because there will be no one else to ask her to do what she doesn’t wish to. Referring to that, she had shaped into a better person with confidence that doesn’t live up to people’s requirements. Evidence can be found in line 15, “And I'm marching on to the beat I drum” (Settle, 15) This can be seen as Keala living the way she desires and following the footstep that she set.
In Eudora Welty’s short story, “Why I Live at the P.O.,” the first person narrator is called “Sister.” The most evident narrator’s characteristic is stubbornness. The narrator wants everyone to accept her opinions and inputs as the absolute truth and seems inconsiderate toward others’ perspective. She starts the story by criticizing her sister’s actions, Stella-Rondo. For instance, in the first sentence the narrator places herself as a victim, when she says: “I was getting along fine with Mama, Papa-Daddy, and Uncle Rondo until my sister Stella-Rondo just separated from her husband and came back home again” (1).
The way they were able to portray what it means for an older sister to raise a younger sister, that includes the friction and fighting that occurs with this type arrangement was beautiful. To show the friction and fighting in a way that was humorous but relatable was completely genuine. Last, I found myself on the edge of my seat rooting for Nani to proving to the social worker "Mr. Bubbles" that she is fully capable of taking care of Lilo and convince him that Lilo belongs with her, not a
Everyday people are forced into situations without a choice. Whether these positions are small or life changing, individuals are given the option to find good or bad. In the novel Tending to Grace, Kimberly Newton Fusco writes about a young girl's journey into accepting the world around her in a seemingly horrible point in her life. The feeling of unimportance Cornelia is given after her mother leaves her allows her an unexpected sense of love, self confidence and voice showing good can always stem from the evil in life if one allows it.

After meeting her mother she is dumbstruck by her realness and from then on in the book the word “mother” is capitalized (Arsenburg 118). In that same scene Angelou uses foreshadowing when she is struck silent by the thought of having a real family, foreshadowing her muteness after the betrayal (Vermillion 67). Foreshadowing is very rarely used in autobiographies, but Angelou manages to make it a beautiful thing. Angelou is praised for many of her literary choices and her “most valued technique...may be the precision she describes objects or places, a precision so sharp that readers carry that description with them, even when the book is closed” (Lupton 69). The way Angelou describes the setting reflects her mood and what is going on at that time in her life (Lupton 64).

During her constant efforts to be known, along with appreciated, she and her husband had become separated. This provided girls all across their shared community with the mindset that being an independent individual was not always unacceptable, instead it could be a beneficial lifestyle. Even without a significant other, one could still possess great knowledge and intelligence. This theory, so to speak, was acknowledged once Mary had received the Medal of Honor. Suddenly the expectation among females had been altered.
As Mae Mobley’s mother verbally abused her, Aibileen took Mae Mobley in as one of her own children. Aibileen once said, “I think it bothers Miss Leefolt, but Mae Mobley my special baby” (Stockett 2). Aibileen concurs that Mae Mobley is not the most attractive, but being “cute” is not the most important characteristic of Aibileen. She values kindness, intelligence, and fairness the most and those qualities are what she tries to instill into Mae Mobley everyday. The things Mae Mobley’s mother teachers her are not just, and Aibileen took it upon herself to make sure Mae Mobley was taught the right way as long as she was around.
The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
Aibileen Clark from The help is my most favorite character because I realize that Aibileen is one of the strongest women that I ever known. It is not easy for everyone to control their own emotion when they were disdained and Aibileen proved it for me. I can see that to be maid is very hard and torture but she can distinguish that Mae Mobley(A baby) is innocent, so she take care Mae Mobley very well while Mae Mobley’s mother always ignore Mae Mobley and hit her. Aibileen is brave too. She dare to share her bad experience with Skeeter for Skeeter’s book even she knew that it can do harm for her if other white people know about this
