    • The story was written really well, I wanted to keep reading to reach the conclusion. It really made me think about how saying “I hate you,” can have such a large impact. Mothers give a lot and I know what it feels like to have that hatred for stupid reasons. The dream sequence was good, I believed it was the real event until you woke up and saw the truth. Thank you for such a powerful message.

    • I like how you didn’t tell us it was a dream so when you realized it was a dream in the story we also were surprised. It makes me think about how everything I say can have an impact.

    • Husnain,

      Thank you for sharing your story of how you immigrated to the U.S. from Canada. My parents also immigrated from Canada, and I am a dual citizen of both countries as well. There is definitely few differences between the two countries as both have similar cultures, but I have found that even though discrimination exists everywhere, it is definitely more prevalent and harsh in the U.S. I believe that the U.S. has stronger disparities between races than Canada, and Canada seems to be more accepting of immigrants. I do believe that improvements need to be made regarding racial bias in the U.S., and I believe this can be attained through a nationwide effort to be more inclusive of others.

      Here is an interesting article regarding how Trump is making it harder for Canadians to immigrate to the U.S.

      Hope to see what you write next,

      Bella

    • Hello
      I really liked your entire post, even though I dont have a lot in common with you I think that your story is very inspirational. I think in our society it is key to be hardworking even if you are not naturally good at a lot of things. I think that hard work can get you almost anywhere in the world even if you are not that talented at it.
      I think you would like this article on why hard work is the greatest characteristic to have.

    • Hi Husnain,

      I thought that your post is very motivational. I have actually never immigrated or moved anywhere before. Sharing your story was really brave of you!

      Here is a link to other people’s immigration stories: https://www.forbes.com/sites/stuartanderson/2019/12/11/the-most-inspiring-immigration-stories-of-2019/#28021f7615c6

    • Hi Hussain, I just wanted to say I can really relate to your story! I also emigrated from the Toronto area of Canada. While I can’t relate to the same name-calling circumstances, I have been teased for my accent and my unique hair color. I also just wanted to say just how much that whole immigrant issue affects me still with all sorts of paperwork for every little thing.

    • Hi Husnain,

      Thank you for writing this piece, it really goes to show that the problems regarding differences in races, religions, and creeds still divides the people of this country. It is a perfect demonstration of one of the many injustices that occur to minority groups every day.

    Husnain commented on the post, Intro To Me

    Dear Grant,

    I am impressed by essay “Intro to Me” because of the authenticity of your work. I enjoy reading biographies and yours was interesting to read because it is from the the perspective of another high schooler’s. One sentence that stood out to me was “My favorite subjects are math and science because I find them the most interesting and I…Read More

  • Dear Joey,
    I am impressed by your post and video, “Me, Myself and I, three paragraphs about yours truly” because of the fact that you mentioned specifics. I do wrestling as well and the fact that you wrestle caught my eye. One sentence that stood out to me was “I’m an adrenaline junkie”. I think this is cool because I can relate somewhat.

  • A Jacob said, I could really hear your voice too. I felt like I was talking to you in person. In addition, I also agree that a father figure is important in everyone’s lives because it creates a balance with the mother figure. Overall, this work is great and keep working hard in school.

    • It’s sad to see that even someone as skilled at wrestling as you are, probably couldn’t make a future out of wrestling if you wanted to. Still good to know you have some direction in your life, I worry about some of the guys on that team. I swear if they let JV in on the whole GPA thing I’d bring up the curve by a solid .1 at least :). You’ve mentioned living in Toronto before (elementary school, I think you did a presentation) and here you are saying it’s like night and day, in what way may I ask? Good bio, it’s good to hear how much all of us Okemos kids appreciate Okemos, it’s a great community.
