    Dear Ibad,

    I am very empower towards your poem, “Get Up” because I like how you talk about how people back then fight for their rights and color people had a upstander which was Martin Luther King Jr shown in the poem picture. But now the dominant group of people want to take our rights right now. To me the main message of your poem is, “Do…[Read more]

  • Hey Abby,
    Thanks for reading my blog :). One of your question was asking what I can do to change the problems from my school district. Something I can try to do in the future is to talk to teachers and students about what they think about the lunch they produce at school. With their opinion we can try to create a change towards having more…[Read more]

  • Thank you so much for reading my blog. I wanted to address what you said when , “Students will have more potential to be more focus and not feeling confused during class”. I was wondering if you had some problems focusing in class because you don’t eat at school?

    Dear Martha,

    I am proud by your blog called, “Oakland” because you are covering about the topic immigration in Oakland. This is really important because Oakland has a lot of colored people living here and have cultural background in Oakland. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “Oakland is a sanctuary city which means it helps prote…[Read more]

    Dear Kayla,

    I am surprise and sad about your blog “Why”, because this blog can be touching for women that got raped and they maintain their silents. One sentence that stood out for me was, “Secondly, women need to remember to speak out about their stories because so many are not addressed. When they speak out about their stories it would help…[Read more]

  • Dear Imelda,

    I am proud of your work about “Cultural Celebrations in Oakland”, because you explain how these celebrations help out the community be together as one. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is , “Oakland Celebrations are so special because everyone is welcomed and they can learn about each other”. I agree with you when yo…[Read more]

    Let’s Create a Change Towards the OUSD District

     

    Does the OUSD district give Oakland high school students an advantage or disadvantage? When the topic of OUSD owning millions of money can be a disad

    • Ashley,
      I was really amazed with your writing specially the topics you chose to talk about because a change should be made and you are taking a step towards making people talk about it. One sentence you write that really stood out to me was probably when you said “Students will have more potential to be more focus and not feeling confused during class.” or also when you explained that a lot of money was being wasted either way because kids don’t eat the food. I think your blog was incredible good job:). Thanks for writing I look forward to seeing what you write next because you are an amazing writer and your poem last time was really good.

Something I can try to do in the future is to talk to teachers and students about what they think about the lunch they produce at school. With their opinion we can try to create a change towards having more appetizing food. I have some questions for you : “Did you like the school lunch that the district provide to students? And If you don’t, “Would you go back and change the lunch food? And if you did , “Does eating in school help you concentrate in your classes?”

  • Dear Matthew,

    I am proud about your poem , “Love and War”, because you connect to the story about Romeo and Juliet and create it about something that happens in Oakland. I really liked how you explain where the non- privileged people live and where the “privilege people” live in Oakland. Something that I like about your poem was that you talked…[Read more]

    My poem talks about how it connects to Romeo and Juliet and we had to make connections to 2018. I ended up writing about love and violence. My poem talks about how love can be harsh and good. My poem talks a

    • Ashley,
      You did a great job with your poem it really stood out to me because I can see the connection to Romeo and Juliet. I really like the line where you said “But “money” is not the definition of love,” this stood out to me because a lot of people will use others for their advantage instead of actually wanting to be with them. One suggestion I would make is to watch out for your capitalization. Other than this I think your poem is really strong and you are an amazing writer good job.
      Thank You-Wendy 🙂

  •                                            My Shadow Box

                                       By:Ashley Mujica

    This shadow box represents my counter narrative and the dominant narrative that people think

    • Dear Ashley

      I am proud of your work because it looks like you added in a lot of detail in your box that means alot to you. One sentence you wrote that’s stood out for me is “For example, outside my box there’s popsicle sticks around the box. This identifies the border that Donald Trump is building. On top of the border, there’s a gun meaning that Mexicans are drug dealers and in gangs. Just because my race is being Mexican doesn’t mean I commit crimes and disobey the law” so this stood out to me I can agree with it many people assume people of colors just commit crime and are bad. Also how you said that Trump is keeping us in border and is oppressing us shows internalized oppression or ideological oppression because there oppressing a certain group.

      Sincerely

    • Dear Ashley, I like your artist statement I think that is a very strong artists statement you said a lot in just one paragraph. Also I like your shadow box I like how you added pictures to it and I like how you added colors to your shadow box. Keep up the good work.

      Sincerely, Bryan Moreno 🙂

    • Dear Ashley

      Thank you for sharing your work. My name is Jonathan and I am a student at Fremont High School.
      Something I liked about your work was how It showed a lot of family on the inside.
      Something I have a question about is how you won that medal that is displayed. Please feel free to comment on my work in the future. The address of my student blog is (blank at the moment).
      Thank You!

    • Hello Ashley, can feel the strong emotions you have about our president actions. I appreciate you addressing the issue and remembering being a women we have as much power as men do!!

    • Hey Ashley, I really appreciate all the work you put into your Shadow box. I like how you mentioned expressed yourself about our president and I’m sure many feel the same way. I can relate to you a lot because I as well consider myself Mexican. I was raised in the Bay Area but my parents and all my family is from Mexico but I continue to follow my roots. I also really liked how you put the fence outside your wall. It was one of the objects that caught my attention and is also really powerful.
