I should have fought harder than, I should have stabbed this man too”(pg.88) Nea is very overprotective and feels attached to Sourdi and can’t bear the thought of her ever leaving. I think I can make sense of the title “Saving Sourdi” now because Sourdi doesn’t need saving, but Nea constantly tries to defend her because the real reason is that she doesn’t want to be left alone. She is old enough to make sense that Sourdi will have to leave her one day.
I think it’s ironic that she changed due to her environment, she was always independent. But her moving into a more conformist environment caused her to change. Her perspective altered to not look at your flaws as negative, empower them, and make them yours. Even with Natalie’s unusual upbringing, she was able to overcome her physical flaws, and express herself. Growing up in a Minnesota High School she reflects back as to what happened to make her change.
The differences I see between these two poems can be found in the speakers. One is a first person speaker and the other is observing, but both are reflecting on the transformation from youth to adulthood. In “Quinceañera” by Judith Ortiz Cofer the speaker is growing up and becoming a woman. She must put away childhood and embrace womanhood. Take the first passage, “My dolls have been put away like dead / children in a chest I will carry / with me when I marry” (lines 1-3).
Nea gets too excited to save Sourdi onece she feels that sourdi is in danger and she never thinked twice or the reason behind of it, she just acts as fast as she can. As her mom says in the story “ You not like your sister. Your Sister Know How To Bear Things.” At the end of the story Nea still thinks that she is right and everyone else is wrongs. She still thinks that Sordi is in danger and wanted to be killed everyone and save Sordi.

These two sisters have grown together all through their life’s, creating a strong bound, and the fact that her family and a “old guy” is taking away her sister is something she can’t stand. In the end Nea believes that she is saving Sourdi from Mr.Chhay and her mother. However what Nea does not understand in all her youth and idealism , is that sourdi does not want to be saved: She willfully accepts her fate and her marriage to Mr.Chhay because she finds financial stability and a secure future.
Just keep your mouth shut and don’t cause my any more trouble.” Sena knew that this was her cue to piece the fragments together, but she honestly couldn’t imagine by the orc would be in trouble when she was the one dying. Frowning, she observed the female orc, who shrugged helplessly. “You really haven’t chosen the brightest light around, have you Nar Siryn?”
Naomi has to figure who to live with either her grandma or Skyla. Naomi has to go through an adventure to make her decision. Naomi is a compassionate person, she looks after her brother and benefits her grandma. “I imagine what’s inside and take away what I didn’t need” (Ryan, Pg.14). This describes that Naomi imagines things and doesn’t give any attention to what others think.
The ending of Noda 's essay is an effective way to bring closure to her ideas by giving a thoughtful understanding of how she defines herself through discovering her identity. For example, in the begining Noda is confused about who she really was. People of white culture defined her by what they saw and heard of her people; they defined her bu= y her looks. Noda was unsure how she defined herself.
This strength however, is not true strength that Nel has, but it is rather an apparent strength that comes out of Nel’s outward appearance and her duty to her loved ones. Even in Nel and Sula’s childhood, Morrison depicts the duo as, “unshaped, formless things, Nel seemed stronger and more consistent than Sula, who could hardly be counted on to sustain any emotion for more than three minutes” (53). Morrison shows that of the two girls, Nel is the one who brings strength to the unity that is their friendship. However, Nel and Sula are also ‘unshaped’ and ‘formless’ much like the ‘custard’ skin of Helene and the ‘custard’ skin seen on Nel after Sula and Jude’s affair.
Nidali must have been hating her father, she just wanted to be free. She has her own goals and she is smart already but her father sets all these rules she must follow.

She’d end up with some twenty-two-year-old guy, doing dope in the bathroom, maybe gotten herself arrested a little sooner.” Nevaeh words are bitter, like she is tired of talking, tired of pretending that things can ever go back to the way they were. “I’m having a birthday party this weekend," I say. “Sorry I didn’t send you an invitation, I wasn’t sure if you’d want to come, I know you visit your mom on weekends and everything. You can come though, if you want.
Although Kiran, clearly the contestant deserving of Sudasa should have been chosen, Sudasa had developed a relationship with him that helped her understand that she has to let him find his family. Similarly in “The Nest” by Robert Zacks, Jimmy, a child of self-doubt rebels against his parents to help his friend Paul. Jimmy understands what is morally right, and that Paul deserved to be treated
