Term Paper by Haruye Imahori for period VII Social Problems course, taught by Harry Bentley Wells at Manzanar High School. Haruye would like to be a bookkeeper eventually. She recounts the satisfaction in seeing results during her classes. However, war and subsequent forced evacuation create uncertainty for her. She tells that her parents believe the best place for a girl is with a husband and family. In spite of this, she wants to attend Junior College at Manzanar and continue her education, eventually getting a bookkeeping position. She wants to explore the single and free life, while traveling the United States and Europe before eventually settling down with a husband and a few children. She wonders what influence the war and its aftermath will have on her future as well. Transcription is found in item: ecm_wells_9019.
