So a few weeks ago I was tagged by Andrea from Stones and Starlings and completed the 6 little facts/trivial tidbits about myself which you can read here. Foodhoe from Foodhoe's Foraging asked to see the prize winning essay that I mentioned in one of my facts/tidbits which you can now download here. Sorry it took a while to get this up. I wrote this on the family computer way back when and lost the e-copy when something happened to that computer. EHK helped me convert the hard copy I had retrieved when I visited the family to PDF so I can share it with all of you. Many thanks to him!
A little background before reading this paper. I wrote it when I was 16... several years ago so please forgive the writing style of a young aspiring writer. Most of my sources are local so if you would like to check up on them please check out the California Room at San Jose's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library(aka Main Library). I hope you enjoy reading the paper and that it sparks up an interest to visit the community or a small chat with me. :)
