A Whole New Start
One Rough Start
"Haha yeah it is, I don't think someone like her would have the same shirt as I did"
Hey Jessica isn't that the shirt your mom donated to the Jewish family services. "
Attack of the Cruel School Girls
"Will this day get any better?"
As Dani and her family have just gotten themselves settled in their new apartment, Dani and her sister, Sarita, are not only now living in a new country but they are also starting a new school. Dani awaits her bus, nervous that she won't be accepted like she was in Buenos Aires.
The hope that Dani had for someone to accept her into this new school was crushed as three girls witnessed an old tank that they used to have and ended up making fun of her. Dani wanted nothing but to rip that shirt off and throw it at those girls, but she knew it wasn't gonna turn this day around anyways.
I chose this scene because at the beginning of the story Dan is described as a strong person who does rightful deeds for others, but as the story progresses her strong demeanor turns into a more emotional character as these heartless girls just tear her apart. I thought this scene played a remarkable part in the story because it shows the change in character and the multiple difficulties that are being thrown at Dani though she cares for others more than herself; to myself, this takes a powerful person.
