Christian's First Blog Post

     Hi my name is Christian Lui, I come from a family of eight, with four older sisters, and my  golden retriever; Rocky. I am a former student of Dublin Coffman High School, and I plan of majoring in civil engineering. I have lived in Columbus my whole life, however my family loves to travel. I have been all across the world, some of my favorite places that I've been too are the Philippines, Australia, and Thailand.  It was great to see how drastically different the environment is across the globe. I'd say that this is a family hobby we do every summer, and I'm very grateful to have these opportunities .

     The narrative; Resurrection from the Essay Connection Douglas states "This battle with Mr. Covey was the turning-point in my career as a slave. It rekindled the few expiring embers of freedom, and revived within me a sense of my own manhood" (91). I found this to be extremely enlightening due to the fact that Douglas was a slave. To see Douglas gain the confidence that he did from such a demoralizing life, teaches me that no matter what, always fight for what you believe in. This piece stood out to me especially because of the descriptive figurative language. For Douglas, this must have been  one of the greatest moments in his life to know that he earned the respect of his master and resurrected himself into a new man.


  1. That's pretty cool that you've been to the Philippines, Australia, and Thailand!

  2. Those would be pretty cool places to visit!

  3. Lucky to be traveling across the world.

  4. Travelling is a great thing because we learn different cultures from different places.
