    • Dear Zacharia,
      I was really moved by your article “Poverty in NYC”, because it showed me how easy it is to forget about these people and their struggles even though we see them everyday. Everyday, people walk past homeless people in New York City and nobody seems to care about them. Your article really helped me realize what big of a problem this is and how we have to do something about it.
      One thing that really stood out to me was how you made a personal reference when you spoke about how at the age of 4 you moved to New York from Morocco and provided your own insight on New York and the things that you see everyday walking down the streets of the city.
      I also like how you included the video. I feel like it provided me with a lot more information to your case and that really helped me understand the topic more thoroughly.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I got really interested in this topic.
