7: Thank you letter: to my G-ma | Dear Nanny, I know i probably just got through talking to you last night on the phone, since i talk to you everyday. My English teacher gave us an assignment where we had to write a letter thanking someone who has influenced us, and you just happened to be the person I wanted to write and thank. From the day i was born, you've always spoiled and been there for me. Do you remember when I was at Stillman Elementary School in the 5th grade, and I had gotten in a fight with that boy, and they had suspended me? My mom was at work so they called you to come get me. I was so scared because I knew my mom to be mad, but you saved me from getting my butt whopped by saying you already did it. Growing up I've seen you and my mom struggle through some things, not too bad but it wasn't ok. Through it all, you stayed strong and kept it moving, and with that you made me a stronger person. Some people don't have a grandmother like i do:kind-hearted, hardworking, generous and loving . Everybody that knows you, know you from being that kind,strong,woman, and from your cooking. (: I can tell you how much you've done for me and how much I love you, but that still wouldn't be enough for you to know how much you truly mean to me . You helped and influenced me in so many ways that now I just want to say thanks. Love Tahirah
8: Interview | I interviewed my grandmother Mildred Powis. Before I interviewed her i thought that I knew everything about her, but after the interview I learned more things. Like recently she finally got a divorce from her ex-husband and how out of her brothers and sisters she was the first to get her high school diploma. Me and my grandmother was always close but doing this interview made us a lot closer.

32: Dear Tahirah, I am very proud of you. I heard you crossed the swinging bridge on your to Grandfather Mountain. Your starting to enjoy your new school more and more.. So maybe you'll change your mind about going to West next year (: . Your starting to meet new people but , your also not forgetting about your other friends either. Since you still get the chance to see them a lot. I also heard your wanting to try out for West's volleyball team. Good. You should keep up the good work. Which means for you not to be getting in trouble, worrying about others and their problems and other things thats going to keep you from living your life and not accomplishing you dreams. Your such a good person and have a good head on your shoulders so i want to see you do good. | Love Tahirah | LETTER TO MYSELF

Maybe sometime this summer I'll come visit you in Miami. Or you can come visit me. Since you got you a Range Rover. I remember when we was kids you you'll always say one day imma be driving one of those. Now look, everything you said you would do you did and you went beyond your doings. I just wanted to say i love and miss you. See you soon. Love, Tahirah PS. You made it to 50 (:
36: Self Reflection | The best part of doing Who Am I was that it was really the only thing we did in Seminar. My favorite pieces were exploring your name and cool things that happened on your birthday, because with both projects I found out things that i didn't even know. One thing that i would do different is spending my time wisely and not doing things at the last minute because there were a lot of pieces that had to be done and I wasn't even close to finishing. The pieces that I would take out are reading interest inventory and self portrait power-point. I think that Who Am I was one of my favorite projects because I got the chance to learn things about my self and others.
