Tapestry was very enlightening. The discourses and themes were easy to spot and were relevant to me. By experiencing Maria Palotta-Chiarolli's view of her life, I learned about the Italian culture and how it changed yet stayed the same. This showed me how society can affect the way we live and how some few unique individuals can change this. It really inspired me to strive my hardest and appreciate what I have.
