The biggest lesson that I have learned from Rupi Kaur’s’ book Milk and Honey, is to love yourself and be true to yourself. I also learn that you should always be strong even in the hardest times. In Angie Thomas’ book The Hate U Give , I have learned to speak up for yourself. Don’t be afraid to voice your own opinions because you’re scared of what others may think.
