  • Dear Meghan,
    I am very much satisfied with your post about mental health which should be a big issue, not something that is normalized as if you’re going to church. “Since it is so generalized in society today, not many people are talking about how this stigma affects those who struggle with their mental health every day”. This stood out to me…Read More

    Do Junk Food Ads Make You Hungry?

    Eight teenagers were recently invited to a restaurant in the United Kingdom as part of a filmed social experiment. After sitting down, each of them was handed a menu with more than 50 different items to choose from and...

    • Dear Alondra:
      I 100% agree with your post, “Do Junk Food Ads Make You Hungry?” because I have craved things off an ad, and any time I go out and eat I chose the item that is similar to it.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ Little did the teens know that leading up to their visits, the producers had bombarded them with advertisements for the fried chicken dish—on billboards, in taxicabs, and in Instagram posts made by influencers. Even though the teens said they didn’t notice the ads, it was clear that the marketing had influenced their decision-making.” I think this is surprising because usually when I see an ad I just fly by it and I see it but I don’t pay attention to it but later on, I would see things similar and get it because of the craving I got from remembering the ad from before.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I enjoyed the way you wrote, it was enjoyable and straightforward.

    • Dear Alondra, I am now even more hungry after seeing the image of the burger you posted on, ¨Do junk food ads make you hungry?¨, because as it is I don’t eat breakfast before arriving at school so I’m hungry during class. As of now me writing this I am hungry. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me was ¨Little did the teens know that leading up to their visits, the producers had bombarded them with advertisements for the fried chicken dish—on billboards, in taxicabs, and in Instagram posts made by influencers¨. I think this is a great way to put it because everywhere u see are advertisements for pretty much everything. Thank you for your writing Alondra, and I hope someday I get picked for a food social experiment.

    • Dear Alondra,
      I agree with your post on, “Do Junk Food Ads Make You Hungry? because I can relate to this mostly every day since I work in a restaurant. Advertisement plays with teen’s heads without them realizing how bad it is. This happens to me a lot when I am working I see those ads and start craving them.
      The phrase that stood out to me the most was “Little did the teens know that leading up to their visits, the producers had bombarded them with advertisements for the fried chicken dish—on billboards, in taxicabs, and in Instagram posts made by influencers”. This phrase summed upon how the advertisements play with our heads and we tend to get hungry and end up eating them.
      Thank you for posting about this topic, I enjoyed reading about it. I am looking forward to seeing more posts like that.

  • Dear Alexis,
    I would like to say that your poem is beautiful and the diction is beautifully chosen. I really enjoyed reading about both sides of your lives because it’s important to cherish your culture and your heritage. I liked how you described Haiti from what the world views it as but we both know that Haiti has more to it than just the…Read More

    Undeserved Solitude

    (Great Gatsby: Nick's poem to Gatsby) I contacted so many who I expected to show.Those who weren’t expected did.I remember the parties full with infinitive glowing stars.But just as when the bright truth like a sunny  day appears they cease...
