“Daddy!” Most often, this is a proclamation of joy, a child announcing happiness toward their father. However, in Secret Life of Bees, a novel brilliantly written by Sue Monk Kidd, this is a cry of despair, a plea for one’s life.

Although often portraying events similarly, the book occasionally contrasts the film, which lends itself to the fact that various techniques are necessary when using different mediums.
Growing up, language art has always been my toughest subject since I started school. I lived my whole life in Vietnam till the age of six when my family migrated to America. Additionally, I couldn’t speak proper English until I was in middle school, so you can imagine the complication I experience when it comes to writing assignment. Throughout high school, I would spend hours on a paper just to get the bare minimum passing grade in English class. As a result of this, I view language art as a pointless subject that cannot be utilize in the real world.
Writing is a language. If we take simple words and bluntly put the phrases into paragraphs, it defies the meaning of this broad dialect. I, Abigail Platon, will not only understand this odd, foreign language but make it my own while painting a picture with the power of correct grammar and lines of beautiful word choice. The only way I can find a gateway to this dream is through, one, hard work on my own and, two, in Temple City’s English Honors class. Through this program, I can achieve the goals I desire to complete, either in the academic year or the “foreseeable” future.
