In my third Literacy Vignette, I feel like I really grasped the concept of describing literacy and a defining moment that impacted my perspective on language. As I wrote about my piano recital, I was able to talk about a language that most people aren’t familiar with. It’s a musical language that communicates through notes and measures. I think it is amazing because a person can express and say so much without having to speak any words. This is exactly how I feel when I play, and when I don’t have the right words to say, there is a lot of power in what I have to say through the music I play.
My second literacy vignette proves that despite your fears and anxieties, it is important to conquer those fears in order to grow and mature more. As I memorized the questions and answers in my Catechism book with my mom, we grew closer and realized that our faith even grew stronger. My mentor, Sue, encouraged me throughout the entire experience and she taught me that memorization is tedious but yet necessary.
