    • Dear Jazmin,
      I really like how neat and easy your comic was to see and read. I loved how you started off by telling us how you struggles to go up and that finally after people motivated you, you decided to grow courage and walk up that beautiful mountain. This motivated me a lot because I don’t always so things because of fear and I don’t like that, that stops me.

    • Dear Jazmin,
      I like your comic because it’s so organized and really easy to read and understand. I like how you talked about your experience at Yosemite and how you overcame your fear. I relate to you because girl, I was low-key scared too lol. You should keep drawing because you can draw really good. Keep it up!

    • Dear Jazmin

    • Hi Jazmin, it is interesting to know the story of your nickname. Culture as well as environment is a big and important factor. So how do you want to people call you then? Do you have a preference? I am on the opposite of your situation. Most of my friends and family members will call me by my nickname. I feel weird when people call my full name now.

    • Jazmin, I love your nickname and thank you for sharing it on here! I also love your real name. It’s very pretty. The history behind your name is really interesting. My grandma and many other family members have given me many nicknames and it’s always fun to be called something special. My close friends will call me by some of those nicknames too. It’s so weird how nicknames can stick so strongly haha. I hope you continue to embrace your name and nickname!! Keep writing!

    • Jazmin,
      It is very interesting to read about the nickname that is so close to your heart because it is something from your grandma. I never had a nickname like that given to me when I was little other than an abreviation of my name. Has anyone you do not know very well called you morenita? How did you react to it if someone has? I found a website with several blog posts about nicknames and the importance of them; you might find it interesting

    • Jazmin, I found the story of how you came to be called Morena interesting and compelling. In a sense its a blessing that your grandma gave you a nickname, and that it stuck, because now you are reminded of her whenever your close family calls you Morena. Since you think that it could come across offensively if someone who you were not close with called you by your nickname, do you still enjoy being called Jazmin?

      Thanks for sharing, and keep writing,
