It’s pretty inspiring hearing about Diana’s lovely, yet tragic story. I’m interested to hear about what kind of personal connections you feel you might have with her, and how you think they could help you during the course of your eminent study?
Great post, Anne! Love the photos, poem, and to hear how your day unfolded in the city! I’m glad the weather cooperated and that you were able to achieve several of your goals for our Library Field Study.
Excellent choice! I have the utmost respect for the feat of satirical theater that Colbert has spun for the last decade, as well as its origins on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show. Between the two of them, Stewart and Colbert have left an indelible mark on American (political) culture, and I wonder: how do you feel Stephen’s contribution differs from the one Stewart made? (Upon his retirement from the Daily Show a few months back, some even credited Stewart with having created the political consciousness of the millennial generation.) What draws you to Colbert, as a comedian and satirist? What do you think his legacy will be?
Thanks for the post,
This is stellar, Nazlie! I love your choice and this narrated introduction to your personal approach to eminent this year. You’re quite right, there are many things one can learn from this project, but when you describe feeling “kind of strange […] because I felt like I could’ve said the same things, and it was nice to know that there were other persian girls out there that felt totally distant as well,” I think you’re hitting something powerful at the heart of this kind of study.
I’m looking forward to seeing how this learning comes together for you in the next little while!
I was already so interested in your writing, but to know that you’re related to them?! Amazing! You gave a solid amount of information and I look forward to seeing how studying someone related to you through family compares to research online or through unrelated people. I’d love a picture in this post! Good luck with the rest of your project, it sounds so cool 🙂
This was such a well done blog post! I was draw to read it just by the layout, but your writing really kept me engaged. I really loved how much information you put in about your eminent person, but I’m very curious how you’re going to relate to her on a deeper level! I’m so excited to see the other parts of your project! 🙂
Great post! I can really tell how excited you are to show how eminent Stephan Colbert is, and I can’t wait to hear more! I’m really interested by how you said “Such as his deep love and interest for his country..” I’d love if you could expand on how he loves his country and why you admire that! Overall you gave a great amount of info and your learning center sounds like its going to be awesome!
Brief but clear blog post. It was informative without ramming to much information in all at once. However you have chosen to focus in on a tech giant. How much do you know about that world and thus how can you relate to him as a thriving member of it?
Incredible post you were immediately captivating and spoke from events as more of your point of view. You mentioned that that were a lot of differences between her and yourself, how do you intend to combat that to be more in depth with her?
Really great post it was informative immediately intriguing and showed point of view that are rarely seen. That being said what is it that makes you say that you to are a victim of sexism and what have you been discouraged from doing because of it?
