Lupe Quintanilla is an outstanding example of someone who has taken charge of her life. She has been, to echo the poet whose work she teaches, the architect of her own destiny. Choose a person you know who, in your opinion, has done a fine job of taking charge of his or her own destiny. Write an paragraph about this person. You might describe three areas of life in which the person has taken control. Alternatively, you might narrate three incidents from the person’s life that illustrate his or her admirable self-determination.
