Amanda Alaura

My name is Amanda Alaura, I am currently "exploring" here at osu but I am considering going into business. My hobbies include soccer and horseback riding. The essay that interested me the most today was Frederick Douglass' Resurrection. I know that this essay had a very big impact when it was published and i respect it for this and the idea of Mr. Douglass gaining his "freedom" and or "manhood". His life was very different from many of ours.

  1. I really agree with you about the Frederick Douglass essay. It is horrible to think about the terrible times that he went through. You are right, his life is extremely different from our own and we will never be able to experience what he experienced in his life.

  2. Hey Amanda, soccer used to be everything to me, until I decided I wasn't as good as I hoped. I'm going to minor in business. There's a lot you can do with a business major. Good luck with that!

  3. I'm exploring and also thinking about business, at least I am not alone! I also respect Douglas for publishing this, because that would have been such a difficult thing to do for just about anyone in that time.

    1. Personally I own a haflinger pony who I ride most of the time western, just trail riding. We also have a arab-morgan cross, who has a lot more power and a tennesse walker. Mostly I trail ride but also have fun going to fun shows, doing barrels and I have one more year at the Morrow County fair:)
