My favorite chapter from " The House on Mango Street" would probably have to be Our Good Day. I would pick this because this is really the first chapter where she goes into descriptive detail with "real" friends since she started the book. And to me in the chapter they seem to have a good time together. " Down, down Mango Street we go. Rachel, Lucy, me. Our new bicycle. Laughing the crooked ride back. " That sentence to me just show to fun and friendship she found.
My biggest role model is probably my grandfather. My grandparents live just a couple houses down so I just go and visit whenever. He is a genuinely great person to chat with about anything. And he'll tell it to you straight. We'll sit out on his back porch swing for hours at time, and not even realize it sometimes. He has this way of making everybody feel welcome.
