  • Dear Katelyn,
    I am thrilled by your poem, “Hurricane Michael, because it’s a real event that happened to people and I liked how you got to turn it into a poem that someone could read and learn from. By reading your poem someone can learn what happened to the people in the hurricane and how bad they were affected. To me the main mes…[Read more]

  • Thank you so much for reading my blog.

  • Dear Kelly,
    I was very excited to read your blog about immigration because it’s a big problem we have going on right now in the United States. The interviews you did stood out to me because it gives us a perspective from someone who knows about this topic since they have lived it. Some sentences thats stood out from your blog was “Getting har…[Read more]

  • Dear Khalid,
    I was happy to read your blog about violence because I also wrote my blog about violence Oakland and why it happens. Something that I enjoyed from your blog was that you had some evidence that gave good explanations about your topic of violence. A question I have is why did you not include another interview in your blog for evidence?…[Read more]

    • Dear Beatriz, I am really convinced about your topic and why violence happens. When you say that violence happens because people who do such a thing don’t have role models in life I very much agree with you, since they grew up with a bad role model they think it’s okay to follow their lead, which really it isn’t. Also, when you explain about Travon Godfrey I think that experience also has to do with why people commit violence because they want to see people suffer, since they lost a loved one to gun violence. I think overall you chose a good topic to speak about, and maybe it might motivate others to remind themselves violence is not the answer, it never is. I think you did a great job and keep up the great work.

    • Dear Beatriz,
      I was very excited to read your blog because Your poem was very interesting, and I really like your article because it talks about serious issues and it reminds me of your poem. I like how in your second paragraph you instantly talked about how violence can make people violent, because of their role models and how people be around it. I also like how you put someone’s real story into your blog that connected a real life experience to an important topic that you were writing about, made this article very interesting. I also like how you you put another persons point of view into your blog to make it sound more realistic. I really liked your blog and I hope I get to read another.

    Dear Tania,
    Reading your poem about love was very interesting because I could really see the connection to Romeo and Juliet. The part where you said that sometimes some people can’t be together because of their parents is true since not everyone has the freedom to love whoever they want. My favorite line from your poem was “Love doesn’t have a mea…[Read more]

  • Dear Kelly, I am very thrilled to have read your poem because it really showed us the connection to Romeo and Juliet’s love story. I liked how the similes you used especially “she wears wings that shine with golden light”, the reason why I liked it is because you can actually imagine Juliet being like that since she was very happy to be with Romeo…[Read more]

  • Dear Ivy,
    I am very amazed by your poem because I can see you put so much effort in writing it so that we could see a connection to Romeo and Juliet. One part of your poem that stands out to me is you used a flower to represent what was happening to romeo and juliet. Reading your poem was very to me because it was very creative and my favorite…[Read more]

  • In this poem I wrote it was about sexism in our society and how it connects to Romeo and Juliet. In my poem its Females and Males against each other while in the book Romeo and Juliet it was the Montagues against

    • Dear Beatriz,

      One thing that I like about your poem is that you talked about sexism. I like the topic because it does connect to our society since people think men are better than women. But also sexism connects to Romeo and Juliet since there was many comments made about women needing to get married to a man. I really like how you said, “Their mouths are guns,Their words are bullets”. I loved this because it is true how words can hurt each other and that words are powerful.

      Sincerely, Kelly

    • Dear Beatriz,
      I honestly love your poem. It speaks out to people about what it’s trying to say, and how it is unjust. I also like how you talked about other things that had differences, then you went straight to the point about what are differences and how one gender is more privileged than the other. I like how yo usaid, “ The war/ fights these two genders have is the words and actions. Their mouths are guns and their words are bullets that hurt each other.” This stood out to me because there is a lot of arguing between the two genders and sometimes we don’t even try to hurt each other. I really like your poem and hope that you continue these to prove a point.

    Dear Tania,
    I am delighted by your shadow box because I can see that you put so much effort in making it looking nice with details. One part of your shadow box that stands out to me is the mexican money because you are showing an item of where you are from to represent one of your identities.I also liked how you included pictures of you and your…[Read more]

    I am amazed by how your shadow box looks like because it really shows who you are as a person. One part of your shadow box that stands out to me is the images you have because they all have different meanings.

    • dear beatriz I like your shadow box and it shows how u are really into catholicism and how your religious and have pride in yourself sincerely,anthony

    • Dear Beatriz,

      I love your shadow box I like what you added inside it. I also love your shadow box because of the bay pictures you put in it (you were so cute!!). One part of your shadow box that stands out to me is when you said that people assume that you are not strong because of your gender. This stood out to me because that is very true in society today, they think that women are weak and can’t do the same things as men. Another part that I liked from your shadow box was were you put the jesus object because religion is also a very important part of my life. Your shadow box connects to me because people also assume I am Mexican jus because I speak spanish. Thanks for your shadow box. I look forward to seeing what you do next because I know you will add some great ideas.

    • Dear Beatriz,
      It is great that you are not conforming to what society expects of you! As a Latin woman myself, I can completely relate to the fact that we are seen as less than simply because of where we come from and the sex we are born with. Being only in high school and already having a strong definition of who you are is already a step in the right direction for your future goals. Wish you the best!

    • Hello Beatriz,

      My name is Jessica and I am a SJSU student. I wanted to let you know that I really like your shadow box! I really like how you were very creative on your shadow box and how you put quotes, your religious beliefs, culture, ethnicity, and pictures of yourself. I also really like how you explained that society always look down on us because we are female. I just think that it is unfair because if we are male or female we are all equal because we are all human. I can connect with you because I am a Latina female myself and I am religious too. Overall I found your shadow box very interesting, powerful and creative! Keep it up and continue succeeding because you can do it and don’t let anyone put you down just because you’re female!!!
