A similarity between both Geneva and Tommy is they were both different. Geneva was discriminated for her skin color, and Tommy was being teased by doctors for being an herbiest. These two people were determined to make a change in this world. All Geneva wanted was to be treated just like everyone else, and all Tommy wanted to do was help sick people. The difference between these two people is, Geneva is losing her job because the restaurant can't meet the overcrowding of people coming in. Tommy barely has any business and doesn't make a dime. In the beginning of both stories it explains their professions and how they got where they are today.
A question that I researched was: What is the difference between herbalists and medical doctors?
-Medical doctors deal with illnesses and medicines while herbalists deal with plants and natural medicines grown from the earth.
