Determined red Maraia is very determined throughout the book for many reasons. One reason is that Maria wants to go to college and study about science but her father does not have the money to pay for her. That does not stop Maria she makes a plan. Maria’s sister goes to Paris and gets her education first while Maria pays for it then once her sister graduated her sister will pay for Maria to go to school. Once Maria goes to college then maria is determined to prove the men there that she can do well even if she is a girl. Those are some of the ways in the book that show how Maria is determined. Maria was determined to do her best in school.
Inteligent=yellow Maria is a extremely intelligent person. A example that shows how intelligent Maria is, is that in high school she got a certificate saying she was “the star pupil”. Also Marie finishes first in all her tests. Maria was awarded gold metals. All her teachers also thought Maria was extremely intelligent.. Those are the reasons why I believe Maria is intelligent. A award Marie Curie received
Serious=blue Maria was almost always serious. Maria focused her life on learning. For example Maria in lots of her pictures is very serious looking I noticed also the author mentions how serious Marie looks also. Marie rarely played Marie spent most of her time learning. Those are the reasons why I know Maria is a serious person. Marie Curies usual serious face.
Independent=Purple Maria has always been a very independent person. Maria never really had that many friends, Maria would prefer to learn by herself. Maria got her own job on her own, lived with out her family. Once Maria moved to Paris to go to College she had the option of living her sister and her sisters husband. Marie chose not to and would rather have a thread bare apartment tiny and cold to be able to study with out distractions. Those are the reason why I believe Marie Curie is a independent person. Marie Curie and some family.
