Page history last edited by fedewakatheric 7 years ago The Good Immigrant Student In this memoir, the author goes back and forth between her childhood story of elementary school and her thoughts nowadays.
She tells a piece of the story, and then explains or goes into further detail for the reader so a better picture can be formed in the readers mind.
The author compares many things in her piece. She talks about skin color, dough-white and black compared to her.
How she was treated differently than other students supposedly because she was quiet and shy. She was always being compared to other students and trying to be better than so she could make up for her race and the way she came across to her elders at school.
What she eventually learned is that she can try all she wants to be the best, earn all the gold stars, get the lion, and remain invisible. But in the meantime, the world around her is making up their own assumptions and judgments that may not be what she agrees with. Her style of writing was very easy to follow.
