    Thank for reading my blog Kimbo 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed my blog. And sex trafficking is a big but small topic to write about. It’s a area of metal and physical damage to the body and brain and it’s important that we know about it.

        Thank you so much for reading my blog Bryan 🙂 . It’s nice that you are happy about the topic I wrote about. I hope you learned something new about sex trafficking and how we can possibly prevent it or at least try to make the percentages of sex trafficked people go lower.

          • Dear Diego,

            You did a great job incorporating different ethnic backgrounds for how our community is a community of color and how many people of color don't feel safe. When you gave this example, “For example, in my class there is around 30 people, and ten out of those 30 don’t feel safe in their community meaning that 1 third of the children don…[Read more]

          • Dear Kassandra,
            You did a great job explaining One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is,”This proves that people are moving out of Oakland because she’s considered moving out since she can’t afford to live there.” This sentence stood out to me because it shows the perspective on what Maria Santillan thinks and it shows a mother’s struggl…[Read more]

            Do you know what sex trafficking is? Do you know that it happens quite often?

            • Dear Christy,

              I am proud about your topic that you have chosen for your blog. I also liked how you named it Undercover Modern Day Sex Slavery because people who see this and reads it would think multiple things about it, and would want to click on it. I agree with you when you stated in your analysis that “A lot of people don’t know what sex trafficking is and it’s important to know what it is because sex trafficking can happen by choice or not. Sex trafficking is very dangerous to the body mentally and physically, so to prevent it we need to know about it and realize how serious sex trafficking is so we can make a change” I agree on this because I didn’t know what sex trafficking was until you told me about it and how serious it was. This shows that no one really talks about this serious issue or really knows about it so I like how your bring people’s attention by doing a blog about it.

            • Dear, Christy
              I am happy about the topic you choose because nobody decided to write about this and literally nobody talks about undercover modern day slavery. A part that I liked was how you stated in your blog, “A lot of people don’t know what sex trafficking is and it’s important to know what it is because sex trafficking can happen by choice or not”. I agree with this because there’s some people who think is a choice. But I really like how you decided to write about this topic.

          •   Hi. My name is Christy and I am a 9th grader at Life Academy. This poem is about what I see in my community and what a lot of people go though. This poem illustrates a life that is hard to talk about,

            • Dear Christy, I really enjoy how you tell your poem from your perspective. One sentence that stood out to me is when you said Papa was a drug dealer because they wanted to buy you (or the main protagonist) candy and would do anything to make you happy. Something you can clarify is who is telling the story because it sounded like it was your story but it wasn’t. Thanks for writing and I am looking forward to seeing more pieces like this.

            Dear Kassandra,
            I love how you put so many little magazine bits that mean a lot to you, this is a really eye catching shadow box and beautifully displayed art of yourself. I really likes when you explained your box and said “On the outside, it has images like people holding guns because since I’m from Oakland, “I must be violent; I must be…[Read more]

            • Dear Christy Vong,
              Thank you for your comment! I appreciate that you took the time to read this, thank your for your support. I really appreciate it!

          • Dear Valerie,
            Your shadow box is really beutiful and unique. One sentece you wrote that stands out for me is “I see myself as a proud Mexican female who stands up for others by using my words as my weapons.” I really like this quote because it expresses how you are a proud Mexican female and that you aren’t what people say you are. Another…[Read more]

          • This shadow box represents me in the inside and how the world sees me on the outside. The outside of my box represents the dominant narrative which is what society sees. Society thinks that all girls are supposed

          • Dear Nacia,
            I am interested in your box and I think it looks great. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is “The cup represents how milk makes everyone strong so by me drinking it I become a stronger woman, and the hearts represent how I have my heart set on the two parts of me, Japan and America.” I really like this sentence because…[Read more]
