With the excess food their workers are not hungry, and will demand higher wages.
Child of The Dark Paper Carolina has made some bad decisions in her life, but so has everyone else. To me she represents the everyday woman struggling to keep her family alive and well. All she wants is the best for her children and herself. Carolina is a strong woman and she is very independent. As Audalio Dantas, I will publish the Diary of Carolina Maria de Jesus because I want to show the people how Carolina’s pride in her own independence is the vital importance that determines both her identity and the way she reacts with other favelados.

The True State of Happiness Janie is a dreamer, her grandmother Nancy says, she lives her life trying to reach the horizon-- Janie’s very dear dreams. The society’s principles of how a woman should act, and its strict limits, prevent Janie from reaching the horizon; that one day seemed to be so close.
