    • I see what you are talking about and i agree with you because you talk about people without insurance but also undocumented people who also fall into not having insurance.

      • Thank you so much for reading my blog. The part of your comment that stood out to me as when you said that other people would assist me with my blog. A question I have is how would they assist me can you give details? I look forward to hearing back from you.

        • Hi Esmeralda,
          I am Maggie, currently studying at San Jose state university. First of all you did an amazing job on your shadow box. I think your description of your box was detailed and you explained everything very well. I totally agree with you that we should all outlive the stereotypes that’s surrounding us and just be ourselves. I love that you are proud of your own ethnicity because simply I am very proud of my own ethnicity and culture too.
