As a female traveler writer, Isabella Bird presents her journey in Korea as an opportunity for discovery, examining her journey carefully and writing everything as true as it is in an opened mind. Isabella Bird seemed destined to travel, even as a woman in the nineteenth century, everything around her, her family and her health, prepared her for her journey of traveling the world later on.

There was a very different use of resources, and how they portrayed their thinking. David Epstein makes a better standpoint and gives better reasoning than Malcom Gladwell on how much control we have over our destiny through the use of better analysis and delivery. To begin, the story on “Outliers” was still a very compelling piece of writing. To begin the story starts off by talking about experiment in which many kids were a part of to practice and experiment.
Joan got the idea for her novel from a HBO special of kids living on the street. The special touched her deeply. Inspired, she sat down and put her pen to paper.

She says “The whole time I was growing up, there was Norteno music sometimes called North Mexican border music, or Tex-Mex music of Chicano music, or Cantina music” (Anzaldua 9). With this quote being said ethics are being used because she knows the knowledge being the music. When Anzaldua pulls her life at home into the reading, it allows us to view the position she was put in and
