Cosmopolitanism, in political theory, means "the belief that all people are entitled to equal respect and consideration, no matter what their citizenship status or other affiliations happen to be," according to Britannica.

Cisneros uses figurative language, repetition and imagery to characterize Rachel as a young child who wishes to grow up and be stronger.

Personal narrative Depression can be a monster and destroy the lives of people, but in my case it help me express my emotions better by helping me be more honest with myself. Depression has never been alien to me. Since middle school I have danced with the devil. I do not know what triggered it then, but it was mostly likely hormones.

Teens tend to revert to social media, which can damage their self esteem, if used improperly. They have extraordinarily high levels of stress, which can cause them anxiety, one of the biggest mental illnesses in correlation with suicide, including depression, bipolar disorders, and insomnia. If a teen has any of these problems, they are four times more likely to commit suicide. Education and parents can put massive expectations upon them, and if they fail to meet those expectations, they will feel as if they are a failure.
