Although she has learned a lot from her schooling and has a better knowledge than her mom & sister, I feel she possesses this know-it-all attitude about what heritage really is. Although Wangero does make a good point in saying that heritage is beautiful and should be shown as art for people to appreciate, I just feel she went about the situation all wrong.
