Donna, Jen, Marin; three faces I knew almost better than my own. Not playmates or teachers, they were the children librarians at the public library, right across from my house. My father, although he preferred Gilligan’s Island and Seinfeld to stories and picture books, supported my reading wholeheartedly. He had cancer for ten years, since before I was born, and, even though he was constantly exhausted, I was always welcome to climb up on the couch or hospital bed...









Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
464 Words

As Mme. Tillier expressed her frustration with educated people who say “Deja voo” instead of “Deja vu,” I sat forward, listening intently. Nuances of pronunciation fascinate me, as do cultural differences. Why is “Merde” a light exclamation in France while its English translation is never used in polite society? Studying voice opened more linguistic doors as I worked through German, French, and Italian music. Differentiating between flipped, rolled, and guttural “r”’s improved my pronunciation and enthusiasm for French class....
