My name is Sydney Piecha, and I am currently undecided in my major. In my free time, I like to stay active and hang out with my friends. The essay that intrigued me the most was the passage from The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave. Douglass allows the reader to visualize life as a slave through his perspective. Douglass's strive to overcome the power of slavery, and his fight to freedom struck me most about his life. His accomplishments are simply astonishing.
