From those experiences of dealing with her father, a psychological analogy between nature and peace was instilled in Ginny’s mind at a young age, and is what she relies on as an adult to handle her emotional trauma. Additionally, Ginny constructs a metaphor, as she asserts that “a seed is a contract for the future” (Hudes 16). To Ginny, planting a seed guarantees that she will soon be able to visually see the fruits of her labor, and will be able to relish in the joy of creating new life. This point means that imagery is as vitally important to Ginny as it is to her story, as her visualization of the future of her garden fuels her happiness and ability to cope with what she is going

In the essay “A Balance Between Nature and Nurture,” Gloria Steinem gives the audience an insight into her beliefs on this controversial topic. Gloria has a belief that both nature and nurture impact us throughout our lives. In her article she writes about how her parents thought that traveling was just as “enlightening as sitting in a classroom.” Beside her parents, Gloria saw the world through a different perspective compared to other kids her age. However, once she got to school things changed- she was exposed to gender obsessions, race and class complexities, and the idea that war and male leadership were part of human nature. Gloria eventually became like everyone else hoping to be accepted in the crowd.
The novels The Glass Castle, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, and Fun Home, the protagonist or main character looks back into their childhood and reflects on their transformation. Jeanette Walls in The Glass Castle grew up in an abnormal, unstable environment that she didn’t realize was odd until she was exposed more to the real world. What I love the most is that she told “her truth”. Not only did she do what’s best for her, but Jeannette came to an understanding of where her parents wanted to be. What makes me intrigued about these particular texts is that “coming of age” can have many different aspects and
“The tragic consequences of life can be overcome by the magical strength that resides in the human heart”, as said by Ultima. Antonio has this realization in chapter 22, when he realizes that Ultima has been trying to teach him all along. Antonio can experience the suffering of his friends and family and string of tragic deaths that he witnesses, and still persevere and thrive. Antonio’s questions and resolutions here are basically Anaya’s thesis for the novel. He must embrace all the aspects of his culture and childhood- Luna and Marez; Native American, Spanish, and English; Catholic and pagan; curanderismo and priesthood- and build his own identity out of them, accepting them all as valid in their contradictions.
As a teenager, re-watching Monsters Inc. allows me to identify with the characters and correlate them to my life specifically. When I watch this movie, I associate Mike with my mother and Sully with my father, thus associating myself with Boo.. Throughout the entire movie, Mike and Sully protect this small child from being exposed to the world surrounding them, while also attempting to get her home. Sully comes across as this protector who views Boo as something to take care of delicately and with compassion, while Mike comes across as a logical person who wants to solve the problem his friend has created. Nevertheless, both of these characters put their life and reputation on the line for this child’s well being.
Education is a small word but it has a big meaning it can change your life and take you to another level and a new world, it teaches you how to communicate with everyone and everywhere, like Malcom X said “ Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” In to kill a mockingbird Scout values education and understands how important it is to be educated, it’s like having a big power. Scout is smart, she reads at a young age and she enjoys doing it even her older brother is proud of her for example he told Dill “Scout yonder 's been reading ever since she was born.” It is important because it means that Scout is naturally smart, curious and loves to learn. And reading motivates her a lot to learn and also she has approval from her dad, for example when Scout came back sad from school because her teacher told her that she should not read with her dad, she told her dad she doesn’t want to go to school anymore because she was devastated but Atticus told her they can still read if she agrees to go to school “ If you concede the necessity of going to school we’ll go on reading every night just as we always have.” That means her dad wanted her to go to school without her being sad and that is important because he motivates her about the thing she loves to do. Reading sometimes makes Scout rude to others for example when Miss Caroline was shocked that her student is literate and she asked her if her dad teached her
