    • Dear Charissa :
      I am Curious by the age you were when you started going to the park your Photographs of , “A story to tell,” because you show that you are at a basketball court, did you only go to the court when you were younger
      One part of your Life story that stands out for me is where You talk about how much you did when you were younger I think this is interesting because… not a lot of kids do as much as you said you did when you were younger
      Another part that I found interesting is where you went there everyday after school and in the summer This stood out for me because you must have loved that park to go there everyday, showing how much it means to you
      Thanks for your story . I look forward to seeing what you make next, because the amount of detail you put into your writing is amazing, you describe it really well.

    • Hi Charissa,
      I like that you seem very persistant seeing that you have moved back and fourth from PA and NY. transitioning schools might have been hard for you. Tell us more about that experience. How are you liking your new school so far?

    • Dear Charissa,
      i enjoyed reading your biography. You were very open in this piece. When would you consider moving back to P.A?

    • Dear Charissa:
      I am in agreement with your bio and feel that I can relate because I also go to harvest and have picked up on some of the things that you have. Being that I’ve been here for a little longer I’ve had more time to get adjusted but your doing fine and you’ll be good.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Yes, I find it overwhelming, but I do what I gotta do to through it. I find myself around a lot of people at different times, and alone at others.” I think this is very honest because I also feel the same way. Even though school is a place where we interact the only thing that really matters is you getting your education reguardless if your alone or not only you can control what you do with the opportunity of school
      Your Poem in a way reminds me of my freshman self and to be honest I’m kind of still the same Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write

      Your bio reminds me of something that happened to me. One time … in my life
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next hopefully its soon. Maybe we can speak more in school so we can talk more about our sisters and family together. One last thing why do you choose a picture of your sister and not you.
