    • Dear Elena,
      I am really interested in your bio-essay, “Growing Up in New York,” because of how descriptive you wrote it to be! I also really like how you were able to share your experiences and ideas in such a creative way!
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ I like to dance, sing, and act. I’ve been in many musicals over the years and always enjoy them” I think this is a really cool thing to write about because you can share all of your experiences with it!
      Another sentence that I found really interesting was: “
      I was born in New York City and have lived there ever since” This stood out for me because I am also a New Yorker! :>
      Your essay reminds me of something that happened to me. In the past I’ve also been a part of a dancing group that I have extremely fond memories of. Although I don’t dance anymore I still remembered because of your writing! I can relate to your story and I really enjoy how it was written!
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because of how interesting your writing is! Thank you :>

    • Dear Elena,
      I am interested with your post because you talked about how you love baking and i just started baking. I would love to know some of your favorite dishes you like making. I am also mesmerized by your lifestyles in New York because of the dancing that you do. One thing you said that stands out for me is: “ It’s nice to take walks there because and I can smell the fresh air and look around at the beautiful trees around me.” I think this is interesting because we do not get this enough in New York City. The city is so fast that we never stop to look at the trees that are around when we walk or even the ones in the park. When we leave the city people tend to stop and look around more to analyze the nature side that we don’t get in New York. Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I was craving pie but also curious to know how to bake it, so i ask my mother for help. At first I was struggling because it was my first time baking anything but my mother was there to help me. At the end it turned out great and this experience has inspired me to bake more. Thanks for your post. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I would love to hear more stories about your life in New York City. I would also love to hear more stories about the activities/ hobbies of yours.

    Elena commented on the post, Making Decisions

    Dear Kevin,
    I am happy about your letter Making Decisions because I thinks it interesting how you have a hard time focusing in school. But it’s important that you treasure school so much so it can help you focus more.
    One sentence that i liked was “ treasure school but I’m not really good at staying focused.” I thought it was really interes…Read More
