  6. Reaction • After learning about Frances Harper she is now someone that I would choose to be my role model. She uses her writing and creative ability to help improve and solve problems that needed attention. I like to think that the way of standing up to someone should be something other than yelling your opinions out. I believe writing down your ideas why and using a type of writing can impact your situation a lot. I like to write as well, and to know writing helps with problems make me believe that if I believe in something that is wrong I could use my writing to make a difference.
