In the interview with Rafael Ocasio he asks who influences you and Cofer states that her grandmother influenced her because she would always go to her grandmother’s house and sit around her grandmother while her grandmother is telling her stories.Then in another interview with Marilyn Kallet she asks about her father and Cofer says that he wanted her to read books not cook if she didn’t want to learn how to and he wanted her to think that education is empowering. In another interview with Lorraine M. Lopez she asks what are your sources of your inspiration and Cofer responded her grandmother and her parents. In all of these interviews she shows that she truly cares about her family and that she hasn’t forgotten about where she comes from. Elements that I think define who she is as a person is that she doesn’t forget where she’s from, she doesn’t forget her family and her ethnicity. I feel that people admire her for the work shes done and the meanings behind the words and the work.
