5/25/11 Recognizing the Bubble At my high school we always said we live in a bubble, just a much smaller one than I do at the private university I attend now. Everyone had money, everyone was smart, and pretty much everyone was white. . .Since I was in a White school, it was hard for me to even recognize the influence that my race has on my identity… The first time I made my web I did not include race in it because I rarely think of it as part of my identity.

5/25/11 Filling in the Web: Gender Bubbles Females are usually associated with care, love, emotions, and looks, while males are associated with power, wealth, strength and providing…Personally, I consider myself a “womanly” female…but I find it can be hard to break free of these labels.
