This short essay demonstrates my ability to make analytical connections between multiple texts and present my ideas in a succinct and eloquent piece.  This piece shows the parallelism of modesty, as described in Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Women, and humility, as discussed in St. Catherine of Siena’s Treatise on Discretion.
