were. When she came to Austria her biggest fear was not fitting in and after dealing with a lot of xenophobic and racial jabs towards her, she was a surprised that she was able to find friends who saw here as an actual genuine person and not a foreigner. The only bad thing about this was that her friends made her questions all her morals. They smoked weed, had sex before marriage and went to parties, all of which Marjane had never experienced before because she was taught it was wrong. Yet, through all of this she realized that she shouldn’t leave her morals for her friends acceptance. Later on she finds real friends who made her feel better about not wanting to do any of those things her old friends wanted to do.” I was my own person who made my own decisions and didn’t need the approval of others.” (Satrapi 20) Lastly one of the most significant events that happened throughout the whole book that really put emphasize on the theme’s meaning was when Marjane fell into depression. She felt as if her life had no meaning and that if she couldn’t make something out of herself in a new country then she was useless and a disgrace to her family. Marjane then attempted suicide and after not succeeding she realized that her life wasn’t meant to end and that her failures don’t define who she is.

    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.
