Both Shyima and Frederick didn't know exactly why things was taking place as they were, they weren’t quite understanding everything. Frederick questioned himself and the knowledge that he know about himself. In the book Frederick said, “ A want of information concerning my own was a source of unhappiness to me even during childhood.” Frederick somewhat thought it was basically normal to not know anything about himself.

Another time my sister wanted to hang out with her friends, but my parents said no once again then my sister said you can meet my friends my mom said let me think about it, so she did and my oldest sister went to meet up with her friends.

I was an inexperienced individual who took for granted the luxury of attending school, or even coming home to a family that cared about my well being.
