Growing up, I never thought it was strange, as a fair-skinned girl with blonde hair and green eyes, to identify herself as Puerto Rican. Granted, I only lived on the island for the first three years of my life and I was never your average girl. Even so, no one ever mentioned that my physical attributes were not those of your typical Latina. While I still lived on the island, people stared at me because I was unique, not because it was impossible to believe that I am Puerto Rican. However, once I moved to Connecticut many adults would stare and question my nationality.

O’Neal admits, “I was taking her class and a theatre class and it became very clear to me that I didn’t want to major in theatre because you had to depend on too many other people.

The entire advertisement it is focused on evoking a response of empathy and compassion for the girl. Again, the face of the girl is strongly related to this appeal because the audience feels touched by her suffering. Also, it is very hard to see how the happiness of the girl diminishes and turns into sorrow. For example, the advertisement starts with the girl celebrating her birthday and everybody singing “Happy Birthday”, after that the mother says “Make a wish” and the girl blows the candles of a pretty decorated cake. In contrast, at the end the mother sings her the same song but this time the girl is completely devastated and there is only a lonely candle on top of a metallic plate containing some food.
The witch stepped out from the shadows of the barn and lifted the dark green hood of her cloak to reveal herself. She was young in looks, her hair cascading down in thick waves of red auburn and her skin being as pale and smooth as porcelain. Although she was beautiful, her presence hardly signified anything good for anyone, especially not the new mother relaxing in a bed of straw with her newborn son in her arms. “Please, Cadence,” the mother begged the witch. “I’ll give you anything you want in return.
She sees them as her perfect little angels who can do no wrong. Because she is blinded by the beauty, she comes up with excuses for the children’s misbehavior by envisioning ghosts. The governess wants to meet with Mrs. Grose to discuss what she saw the previous night: “But she was a magnificent monument to the blessing of a want of imagination, and if she could see in our little charges nothing but their beauty and amiability, their happiness and cleverness, she had no direct communication with the sources of my trouble” (Chapter XI). At this point, the governess is convinced that she is seeing ghosts and takes it upon herself to protect the children. Mrs. Grose however “lacks imagination” and is not convinced that she is seeing ghosts.
A strange and stalker wanders up to a fifteen year old girls house, trying to convince her to come along for a ride. The girl does not want to go, and knows it can only end in doom. Temptation is a part of the evil. “‘Now, these numbers are a secret code, honey,’ Arnold Friend explained.
