There are so many readings from this semester that I just love! If I have to choose from the top two, I love reading "Word Warrior" from Jennifer DiMarco.I just love how DiMarco make words as a way for people to escape into their own little word and I just love love that idea. I feel like that idea of sharing your world with words make it so secure and make it your own. I love her quote, "I reclaimed my power, my energy, and my life with a passion". I just love how amazing writing can make a person become a survivor. It is as if words are your silent angels that always help us and help define us as individuals! I just love this reading the most for this semester. Another reading that I just love is "Writing in the Language of Others" from Assia Djebar. I think that this story totally define who I am as an individuals, that I am a Hmong girl with both language and learn to accept that I am not totally Hmong or American that I am actually sometime a American Hmong and sometime a Hmong American girl. This story help me soo much, "Living in two cultures, Straddling two memories, two languages..." had help me so much in helping me shape myself. To me this class is all about finding yourself through the reading of others! I just love love this class!!!
