    • Dear Andrea,
      I LOVE YOUR COMIC. It’s so cute! I can clearly understand each panel & how you felt in your time in Costa Rica. That is so cool that you got to volunteer at a school over there & be around the kids, since you love kids and want to work with kids in the future. I hope to see more of your work in the future, keep it up!

    • I love how you first talked about how scared you were to travel by yourself and to a place that you have never visited before. I can connect with that as well because the first time I went camping in 8th grade, I felt home sick. I didn’t know how to make myself not feel that way because it was my first time away from home and my parents but I’m glad that you found something that you can enjoy. I’m glad that you went and had a great time. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    • Dear Drea,
      Your comic was well organized and hella colorful! I’m happy and proud of you because you overcame your fear and ended up having a dope opportunity. I love how you got the chance to kick it with kids, I know you love working with them and can’t wait to see you working with kids in the future. I hope through this comic you see that doing something new can be scary at first, but don’t let that stop you from experiencing new things. Happy that you got to share this little journey with us.

    • Dear Andrea,
      Thank you for writing, about something that may have not been easy especially in a cite that is public. You have the courage to write about something like this and being comfortable with it really does show how amazing and the courage that you have to write. I am looking forward to reading more of your work. Thank you for being an open book, I really did enjoy reading this piece.

    • Dear Andrea,
      I love how you talk about your struggles but than turned it into something positive. I like how you talk about who motivated you and how hard your dad has worked. I also like how you talk about how you like school now but when you feel overwhelmed you think about the people that support you and you keep working hard. This motivates me a lot because sometimes I feel like quitting but now I know to keep working hard.

    • Dear Andrea,

      I am moved by your story “Identity vs. Identity Performance” because it shows your transition from fearing failure to embracing it. I think this shows how people and their perspectives on life are always changing. You changed because of a failure. You had a realization from your failure. You put others before yourself because of your failure.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is “I am proud of the person I am becoming.” I think this is easy to admit when things are going right but I believe it’s even harder to live by when we are met by failure.

      Thanks for sharing your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next about who you are becoming.

    • Such a wonderful poem Andrea. While reading this poem it really does describe the person that you are. This poem really does define the person that you are. Being caring is honestly who you are. Great characteristic that describes you.Thanks for writing this poem, looking forward to read more of your stuff.

    • I love this poem a lot. It is a bit choppy, but nothing a bit of looking over wouldn’t fix. It is very descriptive, and wonderfully written. It has a good definition, and carries through without taking focus from the point. I enjoyed it and hope to see more sometime.

    • I love this poem!!! As I was reading it, I was like yup… that’s so Andrea. You’re such a caring person and I feel like I can identify with you as well. I love to look out for others even if I put myself last. I love to make sure that people are okay even if I don’t feel okay.

    • I really liked the work that you did here! It was a well thought name memoir and it was excellent, good job.

    • Hey Andrea,
      Thank you for sharing such a powerful story about your name. It even made me connect to your middle name, due to also believing in the virgin mary. I would love to hear more about how you connect to your first name more. Thanks for sharing, I really enjoyed reading this piece.

    • Dear Andrea,

      I am grateful about your post ¨Reflecting on the Significance of My Name 2018¨ because you explain about yourself and who we truly are. You also find ways to connect with people you love and u may or not be close to. One sentence that stood out to me is ¨ I am named after my grandmother. I am not really close to my grandmother because she lives in Mexico, but sharing the same name as her makes me have a connection with her” I think this is good that you share the same name as your grandmother and you find it as a connection even though you say you guys aren't really close but that still shows good meaning to it. Thanks for your writing i look forward to to seeing what you write next.
