Freedom writers it’s a 2007 American film based on the book The Freedom Writers Diary by the teacher Erin Gruwell who wrote the story based on Woodrow Wilson Classical High School in Long Beach, California. The film was directed by Richard LaGravanese and released by Paramount Pictures on January 5th, 2007. “The Freedom Writers” is an emotional drama, filled to the brim with suspense and hope that will leave its viewers in a state of mixed emotion. All the film is about her first teaching in Long Beach, she was working with students that other teachers call them "unteachable” because the teachers there were being stereotypical and believe that the students in room 203 didn't have a chance to graduate.

My mother used the authoritative parental style, she was supportive, responsive, encouraging and also ready to listen to me when I had a bad times, and also ready to help me improve in my grades like teaching me and also helping in my homework.

Furthermore, Rita herself sees that becoming a student, would eventually push her out of her comfort zone. Being a midget amongst giants proves to be difficult regardless of her outgoing person and stubborn attitude.
