"You're fully aware of all the elements of an essay, and you did a good job putting everything together. You also did well with balancing the number of quotes you pulled from each of your sources. On a minor note, though, it is a bit odd that after introducing Staples first and Adichie second, you then go on to spend your first body paragraph on Adichie and the second on Staples. Typically, the expectation is that the layout of content in your introductory paragraph will reflect the general layout of your body paragraphs. Aside from that, while you did provide solid analysis, keep in mind that you can expand beyond highlighting and interpreting single words from quoted material."
