  • Dear Grady,
    Your shadow box impressed me because you added pictures of people you love. It was also cool that you painted your box white and added the most important objects you have because it’s a better way of understanding who you are and what you think it’s important In your life.

    • Dear Aaron,

      My name is Mauro Delpino. I am a senior at Fremont High School in Oakland, California. My teacher gave us a list of students who had to do a Shadow Box project and she also gave us links so as a class we can appreciate them. I chose to comment on your post because I appreciated the amount of pictures and the quantity of different flags included in your box. I also enjoyed the placement and positioning of the pictures. However, I have a few questions for you:

      Why did you decide to use a black box?
      What made you draw the American flag and not print it out?
      How old are you in these pictures?

      Lastly, I admire and respect your shadow box and I can’t wait to see your next projects.



    • Hi my name is Ingri and my whole grade which is 9th did the same project as you. I am writing this from Fremont High School. One thing I like about you shadow is the pictures of your parents and you when you were younger. I really like that because it shows that you care about you family and you don’t mind people looking at your younger self.

    • Hi my name is Janely, Something I like about your shadowbox is the pictures about your family, and you when you were younger. How hard have life threatened you? Do you think you did your bets on this project?

  • Dear Kevin,
    I really like the idea that you have about prioritizing health care and making it affordable and accessible to people who really need it the most. I really think that is a good idea because there are family’s out there that cant afford healthcare, but it they prioritize it and make it affordable for all it wont be a problem for all people.
