Nobel Winner: Alice Munro

My project is on Alice Munro, who recently won the Nobel Prize on Literature. My project focuses on her life and literary career.



What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing is her childhood. Although Alice's mom had Parkinson's Disease, Alice was still able to get a scholarship to the Western Ontario University.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned about Alice Munro and how she affected Canadians and people all over the world. I learned to pursue your dreams like how Alice did. I also learned about how hard work can pay off.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

My life is easier than Alice's. I didn't have to work hard within the family because my mom was sick. My life is all about writing.
