Tuesday Quote

‟ When I teach writing, I tell the story of the moment of discovering and naming my otherness. It is not enough simply to sense it; it has to be named, and then written about from there. Once I could name it, I ceased being ashamed and silent. I could speak up and celebrate my otherness…”

‐ Sandra Cisneros, from the introduction to The House on Mango Street
