Elizabeth was the second oldest out of the Bennet daughters but never really stood out because she was described as plain.
From paragraph six the quote says “ill high prance down 34th street like a pony in a rodeo to keep my knees strong even if it does make my mom uptight”. This quote means that Squeaky would do anything to make her body healthy and to improve her running even if it makes her mom mad. This fits my claim since Squeaky is focused on running, this also means that she is determined because staying focused on your goal is the same as being determined by your goal. Also, another statement why Squeaky is determined is because she is confident. From paragraph three it says “no one can beat me and that 's all there is to it”.
Bend it like Beckham The summary of the movie is about a young Indian woman named, Jessminder, who endures all obstacles between passionate in fulfilling her dreams in playing soccer and her family traditional culture values.

The reason Amanda is so insistent on Laura finding a man could be due to her past experiences. One of the many times caught reminiscing about her gentleman callers, Amanda states, “She married him on the rebound – never loved her – carried my picture on him the night he died! And there was that boy that every girl in the Delta had set her cap for! That beautiful, brilliant young Fitzhugh boy from Green County!" (Williams Lines 60-65).

The difference between a winner and loser is emphasised when Olive tries to impersonate a winner of an “American beauty pageant” while watching her on television. Rather than being tall and graceful, Olive is obese and short wearing oversized glasses foreshadowing the outcome of Olive entering a beauty contest. However, according to her grandfather Edwin’s theory of winners and losers, Olive “is not a loser”, as in his definition, “a real loser is someone who's so afraid of not winning, that they don't even try”. Hence the idea of trying to win suggests the importance of the journey towards such a goal. As indicated in Ithaka, overcoming the obstacles along the way is the aspect of a journey that develops individuals to the point they are able to either achieve their goal, or feel happy to walk away from it.

In The Secret Life of Bees, Sue Monk Kidd indirectly characterizes Lily as ambitious in order to contrast with the traditional ‘Southern Belle’ image. The general opinion in Lily’s hometown is that girls should grow up to be either beauticians or school teachers, instead of pursuing challenging careers. Initially, Lily herself believes she is bound only for beauty college until one of her teachers realizes Lily’s potential and tells her that going to beauty college would be a waste for such intelligence. This comment from her teacher changes Lily’s whole perspective on her future and causes her to profess that, “I can’t tell you how much I’d hated that question [about careers], but suddenly I was going around volunteering to people, people
