When I was young, I kept hearing from my Mother, “women should stay at home and do the household chores, such as cleaning the house and taken care of the family, while men is working and providing support for the family.” While growing up, I refuse to accepted it; I don’t want to be a domesticated woman only, I would like to have a career too. The poem of Julia Alvarez, “Woman’s Work”, reminds me of those old days when I was dreaming of my future. I can prove that managing the cleanliness of the house is a hard work. As what Alvarez stated, “Doing her woman’s work was a hard art.” It wasn’t easy to maintained the cleanliness of the house, especially, if you have children running around. Being a mother is not an easy job, it was a lot of work.

The advice was more than likely based off of how she was raised and what she had to do herself while being a stay at home mother.
Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to make a difference and help anyone in need that I possibly could. From the start of my childhood, I can recall helping my mother care for my great grandparents, so they would be able to live out the rest of their lives from their home, instead of in a nursing home. As a young child it was extremely difficult to live with and watch my loved ones deteriorate as they got older, as their condition got worse and worse, and saw my mother having a difficult time keeping up with caring for both of my great grandparents 24/7, it put a lot of stress on the family.
