Kylie Jenner appears on the popular reality tv show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. She is also a beauty icon with her big lips and makeup, specifically with her lip kit. The type of archetype that defines her the best is “coming of age” because everyone has been fixated on Kylie ever since she was little, and even more so now that she is an adult. “I’m 16 and still wanna be a kid sometimes” Kylie once commented on her growing up. Kylie also has everything along with her fame and fortune so she can be seen as someone who is way above the average person.

Warmth of Other Suns book cover

“The Uprooted,” an article by Jill Lepore, tackles the storyline of the book, The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson in many different ways.

This article starts out with a story about a man, Eddie Ralph, asking a man in 1939 if he liked living in New York City. The man’s main point was that, “I’m in New York, but New York ain’t in me!”. Eddie then soon moved away from Jacksonville, Florida and became apart of the Great Migration.

She rides the commuter rail to and from London every day for work, which is a white lie she tells to her landlord, or friend, Cathy so she isn’t worried. While on the train, each day Rachel engages in people-watching and materializes a perfect fantasy life for one couple she is in an extreme obsession with.

My name has the meaning of pure and was given to me by my father.
The name Katie represents something as clear as water, a glimmering light.
But does that represent who I am today? I have not discovered that yet.
I would not be considered as pure as a drop of honey from a beehive nor as pure as an element.
I am certainly not perfect, but my personality, my looks, my everything is genuine.
I count that as pure, and that’s all that matters.
My parents say my name is special but it was more of like a last resort to them.
