Phillis Wheatley is another author in American literature who represent two traditions at ones- the black American literatury and the black woman's tradition. In her poems she was using sarcasm and irony as a tool to fight the moral of society and her anti- slavery stance became more powerful for free life. For example, on her poem" On Being Brought from Africa to America" she said " They color is a diabolic dye, Remember, Christians, Negroes, black as Cain, May be refined, and join the angelic train". She became well known for her origine as a slave and in the direct way she compare the color with diabolic dye to tell us the people do not mater from the colore they were living to enjoy the Anglican church and belive in the God. To put diabolic dye and join the church in the same train, she showed her intelligence in her writting and she added her attention to deliver her message.
I spent the first half of my life on an island 210 square meters in area in the middle of the Pacific and the last half travelling the world and much of the United States. 1st generation immigrants from the Philippines raised me and it was from them that I learned the definition of hard work and true perseverance. Guam, the forgotten territory of the US, is a melting pot of various Asian influences with a distinct Spanish heritage and a culture that has shaped me to my very core.

Being with my arrival at Mississippi State University an overwhelming sense of joy and excitement was rushing through my body because I met my first Resident Advisor in Critz Hall. Her name was Beth and she was kind, friendly, and inviting.
For as long as I can remember there has always been a yearning deep within my innermost being to experience first hand an array of cultures and countries. As a teenager, I had the good fortune to travel throughout Europe and to live in Germany for two years. Traveling and living abroad was so appealing to me that I decided as a young adult to relocate to Mexico. While in Mexico I not only acquired a profound respect and appreciation for their culture, but also worked diligently in order to achieve a near native proficiency in the Spanish language. Upon my return to the United States, I slowly began to formulate my next adventure, a trip to the culturally rich and uniquely diverse country of China.

In this letter tells of how I crossed the border between Mexico and the United States. I left my house in Guatemala at 4:30 in the morning bound for Mexico on 28 January 2002.

I remember very well we took a bus as about 7:30 in the morning, while in the bus the man gave me a passport with a tourist visa for me to use to cross the border. The passport was from Guatemala, if I remember right, I do not remember under whose name was made the passport.
I have not been able to participate in athletics nearly as much as I would have liked. I started running track in the spring of my seventh grade year.

I ran in the varsity race for my first cross country meet ever.

When I reached America, I started to remember my childhood. I was the youngest of 4 children. I had a sister and two brothers. We were all crammed into a small hut. We all slept on one blanket on the floors made of cow poop.
