A Street Car Named Desire

Stella Kowalski is a 25 year old women from Mississippi. In her teenage years she moved to New Orleans, Louisiana. There she met and married lower-classmen Stanley Kowalski., whom she fell madly in love with, but maybe more in love with the sexual part of the relationship than actually him. Stella is now pregnant with his baby, but in my opinion its not a safe and happy situation, it’s a frightening thought really. Stella is the type of person who doesn’t care what people think about them. To me that’s an pretty good role model characteristic. I know myself, I care what people think about me and someone who is that way I look up to personally.
Stella is human like us all and isn’t perfect. Nobody is a role model really, but we all have things about us that are role model characteristics. The reason she isn’t a role model is because she is always defending her husband’s actions, she doesn’t protect her unborn baby, and she is naïve.
The reason she is a good role model is she is a positive person, she sees the best in everyone, and she is a motherly figure.
Nobody is a role model figure but each and everyone of us has characteristics that people should and do look up too. I like the fact that Stella acts like a motherly figure. She cares and takes care of Blanche and Stanley. She cooks and cleans and makes sure everyone is happy and that’s a person to look up too. She is always helping and trying to cheer up Blanche and trying to please and make Stanley happy. What makes Stella such a motherly figure is how much of a positive person she is. She always looks on the bright side in every situation, like when Stanley hit her while he was having a poker night, she forgave him and made love to him afterwa...

...es him. She is naïve because she is staying with him for all the wrong reasons. She stays with him for the facts that’s she is comfortable. She likes the fact that he brings home money and the sexual part of the relationship. So instead of taking her and her child somewhere safe she stays and deals with the abuse. The way Stella thinks in that particular way, on relationships and marriage, is ignorant and definitely not something to look up to at all.

Nobody is perfect enough to be a role model but Stella has some good and bad aspects of her character. We know that he husband beats her and she defends him and isn’t protecting her unborn child, but we as well know that she is such a positive and happy caring person to everyone and takes care of everybody, especially Blanche and Stanley.
