    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my corrections to your post above, marked in red. It is important to follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Where did you find this quote by Yo-Yo Ma? Why do you need to understand it? What do you think it means? We expect you to try very hard to work it out yourself first.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: what the author means by this sentence ?

    Please note my correction to your thread title in post #1, huda. That is the right way to ask your question.

    In any case, please note that a better title would have been As we struggle to find our individual voices ...

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    'Explain your answer' sounds like the instruction to students in a text book or test question, not a polite request for help. We don't help with students' assignments unless their teachers have already given them feedback which they don't understand.
