    • Your story about your upbringing is very unique. I really like how you capitalize on your diversity and how your experiences have shaped you as a person. However, I would suggest transition between the second and the third paragraph, because I was unclear about how it connects to the rest of your story. I think you should also go into more detail regarding your hopes and dreams for the future.

    • Hi Ashley! I really love your bio and how much detail you put into your story. I think it’s great that you enjoy communication, that’ll get you very far in life. Everything we do revolves around the ability to communicate, and you seem to do that very well. I speak spanish with my family too. I’m Mexican and Puerto Rican, and most of my family were born outside of the country. I really loved how you explained what your neighborhood was like, it sounds like a great place to grow up. The sense of community you portray is something I crave desperately and it’s so sweet to read about how much that means to you. I’m so sorry about what happened to your brother. Seeing innocent people locked up for crimes they didn’t commit is a growing issue and is always so sad to see.
