Professor Victor Bascara Asian American Studies 40 2 November 2015 Journal Entry A major issue brought up in Miss Sasagawara was that she was misunderstood. She was judged by the people around her to be crazy when really they did not know until her poetry was published, that she was really quite brilliant and just suffering over a man. I think this is an issue as it reflects on our society, that we are so quick to judge and slow to aid others, which is why movements are quite the process and an accomplishment when successful.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
