Budapest San
Francisco Character Trait Presentation Lilian In the book Chanda's Secrets by Allan
Stratton, Chanda's mother, Lilian is seen as a hard working person in the eyes of any reader because of how she continues to work as hard as she can to support her family no matter what. Hard Working The first example where Lilian is shown as a hard worker is proved when Chanda says, "After the blood money ran out, we couldn't afford to buy meat or eggs, so we stuck to soup and bread. Soon we cut the bread. That's when Mama said she's been offered a job cleaning house for Isaac Pheto." (Stratton 15) This proves that Lilian is trying to do as much as she can in order to support her family. Even in their darkest moments, Lilian is doing her best to earn some money. Many people would just give up in her situation, though Lilian portrayed her strong hard working personality and kept moving forward despite all that she has gone through. Even though she was paid very little doing a hard job, Lilian was willing to persevere. This quote depicts how Lilian is a very hard worker as she struggles to get back up on her feet again and continue to work for her family. Hard Working The hard working personality of Lilian is also shown when Chanda says, " Mama inherited the house, which gave us a place to live. She also started a vegetable garden and raised a few chickens in the front yard. But there was no more money. Mr. Dube's trips to the herbal doctor and his funeral had eaten most of his savings, and now Mama had three of us to support." (Stratton 20) This quote clearly explains the large amount of work that Lilian does for her family without being asked to do anything. From being in charge of the house to trying to grow some food, Lilian is running the entire family all by herself. She simply takes on all of the work without complaining which is an obvious sign of a hard worker. Even when things start to get out of hand, Lilian is still on track doing her best to support her family. In the end, hard working is Lilian's middle name which is shown through all of her work that she does for the one's she loves.
