My response essay will come from the essay who a girl was involved called Sandra Cisneros, the daughter of a Mexico-American mother and a Mexico father. A daughter whose father didn’t believe in whatever she did. No matter how Sandra tried her best to impress her father, Sandra’s father didn’t believe her because of the tradition that lasted for years that, girls can’t do stuff that will catch an eye from the society. Anna was not allowed to play with her brothers in public, and also, not only she wasn’t allowed to go to school, but also, she wasn’t allowed to expand her talent of drawing.

To begin, the lack of financial stability in the Walls family has always been problematic, however as the mother of her children, Rose Mary never contributed much to the family income due to her stubbornness and free-spirited nature. A prime example of Rose Mary not providing for her family is a constant lack of food in the house. The children’s hunger is apparent when Jeannette says, “We did eat less.

My Grandmother had a bad back so she didn’t go on any rides, my Grandfather just couldn’t be bothered.

Their reason makes sense, but my sister hates that they do this. With my brothers it was different because they snuck out of the house and my mom would wake up in the morning and see them missing and then she would lock all the doors, so they couldn’t come back inside of the house. What my mom did was really drastic, but she did it for a good reason he never asked permission. The only friends I really have is 2 good friends and I barley talk to them because there’s nothing to talk about once high school is over I still have to worry about
You’ve never moped at home on a Friday night and wished you could go to the movies with your “American” friends. You’ve never tried to translate to both “Americans” and “Khmers” because you’ve never experienced people mimic you.” (Im, “To the Lady that Thinks She Knows”). Mary Im is criticizing Americans for their assumptions about an individual’s culture without having experienced it. Im goes on to utter how Americans never experienced having to translate between native and foreign language because somebody mimicked them. Mary Im also states “You’ve never seen your grandma sit behind a sewing machine and work her ass off to pay for shelter, food, clothing, and luxury things for her grandkids on the other side of the world, living with strangers.” (Im, “To the Lady that Thinks She Knows).
