MINOR: MUSICAL THEATRE
Stereotype: dreamer PHILOSOPHY MAJOR Probably not what you’re expecting, but I hope to onyesha that Aurora is very suited to philosophy.
To begin with, in Aurora's bedroom - if we look closely - we will see that she has two books. Being the 14th century (a century before Gutenberg's printing press) not only would vitabu be very expensive and rare but literacy rates were very low - even lower considering her demographic: sixteen, female, peasant. kwa having vitabu at this time, education / knowledge is extremely important in the household and Aurora is most likely very well educated (=at least literate). Perceptive and Curious
The most important point first: when Aurora goes walking in the woods, she doesn’t just observe nature, but she maswali it. Not the arguably zaidi basic W’s (=who, what, when, where, au how), but “why”
. She already knows the majibu to the others, but she doesn’t understand why (=the cause, reason, au purpose, etc..) for the behaviour of the animals.
She devotes a whole song which not only maswali her ongoing observations of biology (=I wonder why
each little bird...) but also maswali if such observations could apply to herself (=If
my moyo keeps singing...).
Even though she has lived a very sheltered and isolated life, she is very perceptive and curious to the world around her - perfect for philosophy. Level-headedness and Patience
To be a good philosopher, Aurora would need to evaluate different ideas and situations while understanding each point of view. It would be time-consuming as well as hard work (=hard ‘thinking’ work) Aurora did this when she responsibly returned nyumbani after meeting the stranger, and when she dutifully went along with the betrothal and arranged marriage.
From my personality analysis of Aurora, I believe that she is educated and conscious about betrothal because she knows how socially, politically, and legally important uigizaji as a princess is. It’s this kind of contextual approach which would help Aurora form a well-supported (philosophical) decision. Questions the rules
Now, this isn’t to say she’s headstrong, rebellious, au reckless, etc.. Rather, she will think things through, even the 'rules' which are usually assumed. For example, she wonders why
the fairy aunts still treat her like a child (in the forest), and when they weren’t happy at her setting a tarehe she asked why
because, after all, she is sixteen.
As such, not only is she willing to logically think things though, but she is also willing to swali her core beliefs and assumptions as well
Because of these reasons and personality traits, I think Aurora would be very well suited to philosophy.
Her major is undecided. Not because she lacks focus, but because she's keeping her options open. MINOR: MUSICAL THEATRE
Aurora, kwa describing her dream and kwa acting, dancing, and imba to her ‘dream prince’, is a very creative girl. In fact, she has enough imagination to practice and perform alone. As in her “Once upon a Dream” song, she uses her talent to make costumes and heshima come alive.
In musical theatre, she can develop and perform the stories which have the themes that she is most interested in: rebellion and love.
She doesn't have an extra-curricular because she has this. Not only is she having fun, but she's getting credit too. STEREOTYPE: The Dreamer
Rather than studying indoors, Aurora would rather be kusoma and thinking quietly under a tree. When she’s not on campus, you’d usually find her in the nearest park; wandering through the woods, wondering about life, and imba to herself. She’s kinda shy but always up for a thoughtful discussion.
Both her subjects are something she can do which suit her quiet, peaceful, and thoughtful personality.
