    • Hi there, Fatema. This letter is extremely powerful and cites many different young activists. I enjoyed the different areas of activism you drew from, ranging from female education rights to the rights of the natural land in America. These issues are core to our generation and they are fights we will continue to fight until we have won. In the future, perhaps you could write about your own experiences with activism, or issues that are close to your heart. Beyond that, maybe continuing to write letters on issues that matter to you, or more like this one that thank elected officials for what they are doing. With so much negativity in the world today, I think it is important we all remember simple things like saying thank you or letting others know they are doing a good job. Keep up the good work and positivity!

    • Dear Fatema:

      I am impressed with your essay, “Three Life Lesson” because you explained really well the similarities and differences between the three stories. Also, you give a brief definition of the literary elements used in the stories wich is helpful. A set of lines you wrote that stands out for me is: “This story is different from “The Lesson” where the children are in a gang group and they are lower income class families and they don’t have any education. That is why it was hard for them to deal with the real world and why Miss Moore is trying to show them a different class of society. So they can have some idea about it.” I think this is a key detail because people who don’t have the chance to get education may have a limited view of the real world, not knowing all the oportunities they could have through education. Another sentence that I read was: “This three stories similarities is that all the character from from three different stories they are learning from someone who is older than them.” This stood out for me because thinking about it, its true that all the mains characters are learning from someone experienced in the life. In “Everyday Use”, Dee was teaching Mama and maggie about what she learn in school, in “The Lesson”, Miss Moore was teaching to a group of kids about wealth inequality, and in “How to dat…”, the main character was learning from someone who was experienced in how to behave with a girl. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because it helps me to se more similarities about these short stories.

    • Dearn fatema:
      I am interested in your literary analysis, “Three Life Lessons,” because you give us a summary of three stories that have a connection with education. Each story has a different point of view on education. For example, it shows different ways of young people facing the issues about it.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “What I noticed in these three stories no matter who they are, the characters want to learn more about what they do not know about yet,” I think this is powerful because you find connection between the three stories about education, and new generations. Also is interesting because your idea changes my understanding about the stories.
      Another sentence that I felt was “They are also similar because they have high expectations for life because they are trying to be better.” This stood out for me because this sentence describes each character of each story that relates how they help its community to do not make the same mistakes as the people did on the past.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you are a good writer and you identify details that can summarize your words.

    • Dear Fatema:

      I am inspired by your short story because it is very powerful and phenomenal piece of writing.

      One paragraph that stands out for me, “Zahra life was at risk. Almost half of the body got burned. Her bodywould be filled with scars. This is why she always feel sad about it. Because when she goes out of the house, people look at her in a different way.” I think these two lines are critical to your story’s overall feelings, because it is very sad!

      Your short story reminds me of my friend that I have not seen for decades, is this even true?

      Thanks for your letter. I look forward to seeing what you make next.

    • Fatema,

      You have a beautiful talent in writing, especially in the scope of drawing readers in. It is fascinating to watch someone be able to tell a story that did not happen in reality with such great details.
      One line that stood out to me was ” They were hugging each other and sharing happiness. Mom was holding the baby with teary eyes, and thinking what a blissful gift she had received from God.” With just a few simple sentences, you have succeed to portray the emotions of a mom who had just given birth.
      Your short story inspires me to write more and more importantly, express my gratitude for my mother because moms are the best.

      Thank you for your story. I look forward to reading your next one.

    • Dear Fatema,

      I am stimulated by your short story ” Mama and Maggie’s struggles” because it is a great story which has a very specific details about the event that Maggie had faced which never makes her feel confident and make a good communication with outside of people. Her fantasy to be becomes a successful could makes change of her fear that she have inside of her.

      One sentence that stands out for me, “ Suddenly, they heard a crackling sound and inside the house it was all black smoke. Mum was looking back to the house horrified. She can only see the fire is up to the sky and so dark” this scene is horrible but it is foreshadowing of your story. We can infer what would be the next chapter about.

      Your story helps me to comprehend “ Everyday use” that I once read, where Maggie’s some of body part got burned because of the flame of fire and mama we’re happy to have two daughter.

      Thanks for your story. I am looking forward to seeing what you make next.

    • Hey Fatema:
      I loved your story and I think it’s truly inspirational. You can really feel the emotion you put behind the story. As I read it it kind of felt like a story that could have happened in real life. So my question is, where did your inspiration come from?
      Thanks!
      Josh
