    • Dear Douglas Ramos,

      I feel a litte counfused about your post because that Oaklands rent hasnt doubled priced. “The rent in Oakland has doubled in price in the past 10 years!” This sentence stood up to me because prices didnt doubled because for that reason. The real reason they doubled because people in San francisco couldnt afford to pay for the rent so thats why people from San Francisco came here to Oakland and that is why the prices have doubled up. Also because people are expericing poverty too.

    • Dear Douglas, I think your post was interesting because you explained how the rent has been raised. A line that stood out to me was “in 2012 it ignited a housing crisis that’s made it difficult for many people, especially those in minimum wage or entry-level jobs” because it shows me tht Oakland isn’t how it used to be before when rent wasnt to high and everyone lived in their own homes. I agree with your point about the rent being too high because it was a good claim that the rent is too high nowadays, and that it’s not right. Thanks for writing and keep it up you did a good job and your paper was good.

      • Thank you so much for reading my blog. A question i have for you based on your comment is, Why did my line stand out to you and is there anything that i can do to make my writing as best as it can be so It can seem more interesting?

        The objects in my shadow box really represent a lot about me and my nationality and race. This also shows a lot of my chosen identities like i’m a big fan of soccer and basketball so I put my favorite teams in

        • Dear Douglas,
          Something I liked about your shadow box is about how you want to embrace bout you being from Guatemala. I’m also from Guatemala so i do connect you from that. I like how you put the Guatemalan flag on the background so it does pop out. A sentence that stood out to me was about how you liked about Mario Kart 7. I liked that video game when i was little because me and my brother about who’s getting first place.

        • Hello Douglas, I am a student at SJSU, your shadow box was amazing what stood out to me was that you played soccer because soccer has been the only sport I’ve actually played. I love that sport and I love the dedication you have to the sport and the want to exceed and surpass from 2nd to 1st place. I also enjoyed the fact that you displayed your heritage and what it means to you.

        • Dear Douglas,

          I am a student from San Jose State University and I really like all of the items that are in your shadow box because they represent you and who you are as a person. I also really liked how you put your second place medals in your box, it really shows me that you are super humble and doesn’t give up until you get first place. I do hope you get first place soon. And lastly, everything in your box really shows who you are and I hope you never change. Keep representing your background and you as a person! 🙂
