“…left me with a feeling of accomplishment”

Research title: “'You Are Acting Like A Child': Mother-Daughter Development in Brave: A Modern Fairy Tale?”

“Research is a great way to gain knowledge and then question it. My topic taught me a lot about how fairy tales are used to help develop a young child’s psyche, but as I researched more on the subject, I couldn’t find answers to some of my questions—which led me to my thesis. Now I feel that I have contributed to the area in which my research took place. It left me with a feeling of accomplishment.”
