  • Hi Julia!

    I was interested in your post because I am fascinated by the influence of language and how it contributes to the connections we form with other people.

    I thought that your post was very interesting to read and is especially relevant to what’s going on in the world today, specifically in America. I like how you used the Constitution as your main point of reference, as well as other events in history that directly discussed injustice, both of race and gender. I recently learned about t…Read More
