Most people struggle with figuring out who they really are. The short story "Everyday Use,” written by Alice Walker, emphasizes this aspect of individuality. It is about an African- American mother and her two daughters. The story concentrates on the lives of two sisters named Maggie and Dee(Wangero). Maggie is portrayed as a homely and ignorant girl, while Dee is portrayed as a beautiful and educated woman. For some of my family the search for individuality is an ongoing process. In fact, my family and the family in “Everyday Use” share similarities and differences when it comes to actions of young people, the treatment of children, and relationships between family members.
When life throws you off a mountain, then stomps on your face about 1000 times, it’s pretty horrible. I’ve never been great at dealing with my emotions and that’s not good. I would hold them all in and that went on for 3 years, then I exploded. When that happened, I fell into a destructive state of mind. I isolated myself from my entire family and friends, it got so bad that I hurt myself the summer before I started 8th grade. For the next 5 months, I was suffocating and I didn’t know how to stop. It wasn’t until my mom found out she immediately made an appointment to bring me in for therapy. That’s when my love for reading and writing got its start.

A common theme presented in Alice Walker’s “Everyday Use” and Toni Cade Bambara’s “The Lesson” is the power of knowledge and education.

The current study sought to examine the relationship between the context in which a college student was raised and their level of felt anxiety, as well as the coping strategy adopted by these individuals. The researcher hypothesized that those college students who were raised in a rural context will have a greater level of felt anxiety and will utilize more maladaptive coping strategies. The Penn State Worry Questionnaire and the Brief COPE were used to collect data from a pool of 100 college students from a small, rural college. Two One-Way ANOVA analyses were utilized to examine the relationship between 1) context and felt anxiety and 2) context and coping strategies (adaptive and maladaptive). The researcher found that indeed there
