She uses ethos here because the speech is from a graduation and she’s an expert in graduating because she experienced it herself and she has an excellent life now. “Now all I have to do is take deep breaths, squint at the red banners and convince myself that I am at the world’s largest Gryffindor reunion” (Page 1, column 1, line 10-13) This is an allusion because it’s a reference to her well-known Harry Potter book series. This reference is very good, because many people know of her work and therefore they will relate to the content. “I have decided to talk to you about the benefits of failure. And as you stand in the threshold of what is sometimes called ‘real life’, I want to extol the crucial importance of imagination” (Page 1, column 2, line 11-13) This is a metaphor, cause it’s comparing graduating to walking through a threshold into ‘real life.’ This is effective because it shows that the students are about to leave the

He states, "before sisterhood; there was the knowledge - transitory, fragmented, perhaps, but original and crucial - of mother-and-daughterhood" (JSTOR). This alludes to how people should value the first person who a child develops a relationship with. Hester and Pearl share these same qualities and more throughout the novel.
Romeo and Juliet”: True Love Romeo and Juliet is known as one of the most romantic love stories in literary history, furthuring this point is the true love and sincerity between Romeo and Juliet which is justified by religious imagery and language, the overall theme of fate, along with solemn tone regarding love found in the text. Throughout the play, Shakespeare consistently makes use of religious imagery and language. It is used to display how their love is “holy” and “pure”, and does not allow for it to be dismissed. The first conversation between Romeo and Juliet consisted of a shared sonnet, which was laced with heavy use of religious vocabulary. In the text, Romeo metaphorically considered himself to be a pilgrim approaching Juliet’s hand, a holy shrine, which he was unworthy of.
Responses to Narrative Narrative story written by Sara well depicts my essential image in the first and last paragraph. A reader can easily imagine how I look like, and how I dress up on my usual days. It also captures some part of my personality by using words, such as “bright and contagious", “calm and ready to go”, and “excellent listener”. Except for two inaccurate things which I will talk about in the following paragraphs, I think Sara has overall well captured me authentically in the narrative essay. The essay authentically presents why I had to move to the States, things that I struggled with, and what has shaped me into the person I am today.

I thought this was an inspiring diversity workshop. My reaction to it was, “okay, I feel like I now have a few more tools in my belt to help me grow my skills in diversity.” Dr. Jolivet was very knowledgeable in her field of higher education. My favorite part was when she, owned her background and opened with that spiritual song. I believe the reason is, I felt a connection in that moment to receive what was going to be said.
