Emily Ko 10/21/2008 Paper #3 CRN: 73333 An Unspoken Name Listening to fascinating stories is generally a technique that leads us to create an imaginary world, and to form our personalities beginning around the age of four. We use the same method when listening to historical facts that happened to our family members, close friends, or well-known people. Although family stories are usually not as attractive as those that create our image, they link the spirits of our ancestors’ to our own, and generate a picture in our mind to memorialize them. In Maxine Hong Kingston’s essay “No Name Woman”, she begins with her mother telling a story about her aunt in 1920s China. Kingston’s aunt becomes pregnant years after her husband leaves China for America. Because it is impossible that the baby belongs to Kingston’s uncle, the family is ashamed of what her aunt does and considers her an outside. This causes her aunt to commit suicide in the well with the baby.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
