Listening to Hanna was fun. She spoke in a way that was funny and interesting but was on track and still helped us learn more about her life and how the books have shaped who she has become. Like I said in my last post, I think that the way someone tells a story can make it interesting or boring.
Learning about how she grew up and how the environment around her shaped her was interesting too.
I also think that it was really interesting when she said that she didn’t have a book that represents and reflects her before she wrote her own. Adding onto that, the graph she showed about the main characters of books, I think that she shines a light on something that is rarely spoken. That people need an author to help represent who they are and to represent the minorities. The stories of the ethnicities that are rarely spoken about. I think that it is important to keep these things in mind when writing my own story.
