Solution

Verified

At first the author tried to assimilate with other girls in the classroom. This is evident when she says she had to take off golden loops and ribbons before she went to school in order not to be different from others. Later, her attitude changed and she decided to be a writer in order to express her identity and show herself to others. In this essay we see that she does so through the depiction of her Haitian tradition and language.
