Anne Frank's words of advice and what she taught me:

  • "In the twilight beside an open window you can say more to each other than in brilliant sunshine. (67)"
  • "Everyday I feel myself maturing, I feel liberation drawing near. (19)"
  • "We can start now, start slowly changing the world. (19)"

I'm glad I chose Anne Frank to do this project on, because she has taught me so many things. She showed me staying strong goes a long way. Anne inspires me because she had so many struggles in her life, and so many issues, but she pushed threw them. She makes me realize that if she can change I can change it too, and that is a beautiful thing.
