Paislee 's pov I allowed my body to flow effortlessly as I was very closely surrounded by all of my friends and quiet a few people I barely even knew. We had been dancing at my sweet 16 as I began to lose all track of time. I was wearing the dress I had picked out a week before with my nude heals and I felt beautiful. The party was held at my friends house because she had insisted on it. She had decorated the entire place with blue and black and covered it with polkadots.
I started Ross in 7th grade after attending an all girl’s Catholic school in New York City. As a 12 year old, I arrived to Mrs. Crane’s class overworked, uninspired, and a pretty lousy student. Maybe it was the boys in the classroom, or it could have been Mrs. Crane’s somewhat endearing bipolar personality, but I think everything changed for me on Maya Day. I started to like going to school. In my seven years at Marymount, I’d never woken up excited for the day.

Frankie's integrity and moral fortitude against wrong prevails as she goes through her coming of age story.

Once she has calmed down, I rewind to the beginning of the recorded Huggies commercial, as I had done hundreds of times before, and allow my grandmother to laugh and coo at the toothless grins on the television. My grandmother, or Abuelita as I like to call her, was diagnosed with Alzheimer 's disease a year before I was born. I grew up knowing that she was different from other grandparents, but I never thought that she would teach me what it is to be responsible for another human being.
My mother resembled a Hollywood starlet whirling around the living room in her taffeta dress. This was the first time I had seen her smile since daddy left. He had been on a Navy ship for as long as I can remember, this time aboard the USS Princeton in Korea. In his absence, mommy had grown restless and happily accepted a job at the Rialto bar, conveniently situated below our upstairs apartment. “Rosie, this is perfect,” she said, “You can look after the little ones while I work.” Barbara was a year younger than me, Jimmy was five and Dottie was three.
Helen Keller was an activist, who used her challenges of being deaf, and blind to help others with the same challenges. To help her along the way Helen Keller had a lot of motivations, had activism, and influences. One of her motivations were going to school to become educated.

It’s my mother tongue” (Tan, 2014, p.317). Because Amy grew up grew up with her mother’s modified English, understanding it became second nature. Intimacy of language utilized by close family and friends makes sense to those belonging to the group, while outsiders remain disconnected To prevent confusion and language barriers, the method of delivering language depends on the situation and audience.
Daisy Speranza. She is my age and I have known her since middle school. I use the word “known” loosely because in the six years we’ve known each other we couldn’t’ve said more than 20 words to each other. The longest conversation we ever had with Daisy was when she got knocked over in the hall and I helped her pick her books up. She said thanks with a timid laugh I said no problem with the same timid laugh.

The stereotypical suburban family. Now as a sixteen year old girl I am more educated and know that everyone 's family situation is different. However, as a six year old it was harder to understand that because having a happy, healthy family was all I ever knew. In second grade there was a girl in my class who came in and told the whole class the her mom was going to be on the show “Intervention”. Little did I know that her mother was
She only had 7th and 8th grade in her middle school so it was a lot smaller that it is now. “We only had an orchestra, crafts class, and a home EC class.” “We would have a school dance almost every month. All the girls would get to the bathroom after 7th period and spray our hair and put on makeup.” Then after dances, they would get a quarter and call their parents on the wall phone. Some people that influenced Janelle’s life is her Mom, “she was always so kind and really made me who I am today.” Michael Jackson, “he was what we all listened to in my highschool years.” My friends, “they really shaped my attitude and who I am today.” Her first job was at her dad’s optometry office. “ I worked there over the summer and made ok money for the times I would go out with my friends.” A few of her other jobs were in college.
