Literacy History Autobiography
When it comes to being literate, I’ve always been on top. Ever since I could remember (I can’t actually remember very far back) I’ve been pretty high up on the literacy tower. I believe I’ve been able to read and write fairly well, since what feels like 1st grade. I was never actually given help from my parents in my rise of literacy. My Nana is to thank for that.

What would I do without being able to read OR write in the United States of America, dominated by English? The simple answer is, indeed, nothing!

Nobody could ever pass any classes, either. A person has to read and write in all classes someone could take. There isn’t a single occupation that wouldn’t need reading and writing as a
