Caroline Casey has beaten the limits of partial blindness in her life. Even with adversity, she never opted for the easier option and went on to find success both through her career and by doing things that no one would believe she could do (such as riding an elephant through India). She claims that by not placing oneself beneath limits, they can overcome any struggles and accomplish anything. Limitations only challenge those who accept them. In comparison to The Great Gatsby, this is shown by Gatsby through his attempts to overcome the adversity of being lower class by trying to be the best man he could be. He worked hard to be physically and mentally ready for attaining wealth and worked hard as a poor man to attain wealth. I agree entirely with Caroline’s views because with the capitalist system of America, anybody can move classes depending on failure or success. The is part of my dream because I want to move from the middle class to the upper class and make my parents proud.
