My name is Chandler Fullenkamp. I'm from Dublin and graduated from Hilliard Davidson. I'm a freshman this year and I'm planning on transferring to main campus next year. My fun fact was that I have traveled a lot including Hawaii. I have one brother and two dogs.
Frederick accomplished many things in his lifetime. He was a slave from Maryland that later escaped to New York. Being illegal to teach a slave to read, Douglass was lucky that the owner's wife taught him the alphabet. After her husband found out what she was doing, he disapproved, saying a slave would be dissatisfied with their condition if they learned how to read and demand freedom. He was very determined to learn more so he continued to learn from the white children that lived close to him. He believed not only should African-Americans have equality, but also Native Americans, females, or any immigrant. Just from simply learning to read and write he later became abolitionist, suffragist, author, editor, and diplomat.
My favorite poem from today would probably have to be the one by Tim Seibles titled, "For Brothers Everywhere." In the poem, I liked how he used slang vocabulary because it makes it easier to relate to it and makes it an easy read. I think that using this vocabulary in a poem makes it stand out from others and makes it more unique. I noticed that the rows do not rhyme which each other also. The question I have about this poem is what kind of poem is this called?
Since this poem has a lot of slang vocabulary, it is difficult to find most words in the Oxford English Dictionary. So, out of the few words left, I chose the word summer. Summer is described as the second and warmest season of the year. Its uses are mostly to describe the type of year but it also can be used as a unit of time. The origins of the word summer dates back to the year 825. What i found interesting about this word is how long ago the word originated. My favorite season of the year is summer because of the warm weather.
