    Dear Ulises,
    I am fascinated by your box because you used a big Mexican flag to represent your home country. I also like that you used an American flag on the other side of your box, even tho its small it shows were you live and were you life started. In addition I like how you put the oakland tree in your box because it…[Read more]

  • The inside of the box represents me because it has images on the back wall of me and family/friends. These represent me because I care and love my family and friends deeply. I also added a campsite in my box

    • Dear, Christina

      I like your shadow box because it shows on your little essay that you like nature, and exploring the world. And I can see that you have a dream school and that is a goal you would like to meet some day for you can be a zoologist or vetnerania.

    • Dear Christina,
      I really enjoyed seeing all the details and objects that you incorporated on your box. Your box clearly shows who you are as a person and what you like. I think that you did a very great job with all the colors and details on your box. God job on your project it was honestly really beautiful!

    • Dear Christina,
      I love your shadow box! It looks so creative and original. A part of your paragraph that I like is where you talk about being really close to family and friends, and how you care about them. Something that stood out to me is where you talk about liking camping and being away technology ( I don’t think I can do that). Another one that stood out is wanting to be in UC Davis! I find it really nice how you want to study about animals, and become a veterinarian. Something I want to point out is the girl power I think is super cool to point out, I totally agree with you. I also agree with you on thesterepytpes and being latina. Keep it up, hope seeing more of your hard work!

    • Christina, I enjoyed reading about your shadow box and was amazed by all the messages it shared about you. I can relate to it because every year my family loves to go camping for the same reason that we want to have a little get away from technology, and spend time with each other. I like how you included a plane to show your love for traveling. It is great that you already have goals set for yourself, UC Davis is a great school and great career choices (veterinarian and zoologist).

    • Dear Cristina,

      Your shadow box was impressive because you expressed who are yet what you are not. The colors you selected I thought were perfect for the symbols you were trying to convey. The items inside your box were so simple but yet so telling. Everything just expresses you as an individual and that is what I like the most. When you talked about the stereotypes that people place on you I was able to relate because as a Mexican-American people think that I should just go work in fast food for the rest of my life, when in fact I’m just working toward an education. Overall your article go me thinking about just how independent everybody is and that everybody is unique in our own simple way. Great job Cristina!

    Dear Emely,
    I am fascinated with your shadow box, like how you used a statue of Guadalupe in your piece and add pictures of yourself. When I see your Guadalupe statue and your pictures around it; it makes me feel like she is protecting you. In addition I like how you used the american and Mexican flag it shows me that you a you…[Read more]
