• Dear Allison:
    I am impressed with your poem “My Life in La Troncal, Ecuador,” because it expresses what you are made of very well. Reading about your life in Ecuador was very interesting to me.

    • Dear Grant,

      I am impressed by essay “Intro to Me” because of the authenticity of your work.

One sentence that stood out to me was “My favorite subjects are math and science because I find them the most interesting and I am the best at them.” This stood out to me because I feel like most kids hate these subjects the most. They are often the toughest subjects as well, maybe you are just a very bright student. Another sentence that caught my eye was “In college, I want to go into the medical field just like my dad”. This stood out to me because it got me thinking about how big of an influence a child’s parents are. Have you seen this article: https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2019/04/17/med-school-washington-university-st-louis-will-be-tuition-free-more-half-new? I thought you might be interested in this because it talks about potentially free medical school. This is really cool because we both know how much in debt medical students have to go into. You should check it out! Thanks for writing, I look forward to seeing your writing because I am interested in what you will do in the future. We both live in Michigan, so it would be awesome to see you do big things in the future and represent Michigan at the same time. In addition,what better way to share those experiences than on here!
