  • Paola,
    Your shadow box is very unique and interesting. I really like how you added the fence and the light to your box because they really stand out. I also appreciate you for sharing personal stuff about you and your family. I liked when u said that you don’t believe what other people say about you and you know that those statements aren’t tru…Read More

  • Erika, I really liked your shadows box because you added things that mattered to you like pictures of your family and friends. I also like how you explained your dominant and counter narrative. When you said that people assume that you are weak and can’t play sports, I really liked that because you then explained that’s not true and you don…Read More

    • Dear Joana,
      How do you feel about women being associated with emotions? Do you feel this is accurate, or was this more of a spur of the moment thing. How do you feel about your culture, and do you find it a constant part of who you are? Does it set you apart? I really liked how you put in the Golden Gate Bridge, even though youve never been there the fact that you like it says a lot on who you are, and what your passions are. Thank you for sharing!

    • Dear Joanna,
      I am impressed with your shadow box because it has a lot of detail, color, and objects and it really pops out. An object that stood out to me from your shadow box was the bridge. First it catches my attention because it is one of the biggest object but also because it has me thinking about what it may mean to you. Maybe it is an object that represents you overcoming your obstacles or an object that represents you liking San Francisco. I think the bridge was a good object to add into your shadow box because it really seems like it represents you and it make your box look really nice as well. Thanks for sharing your shadow box with us. I look forward to seeing what you do next because it looks like you are a very creative person and your projects are really interesting. -Elizabeth

    • Dear joana,Wow i really like how you made your shadowbox and it looks interesting ,and i like that you put the golden bridge because i also like to go in any bridge having fun with my family.But i also i have a question for you .How many days you took to finish the bridge? .Who help you ?.

      • Dear Maria,
        Thank you for taking time to read my description and looking at my shadow box. It was also cool to know someone new that also likes the bridge. For the first question, I made the bridge in one day and I did it myself. Thanks again for reading it and for asking questions.

    • Hi my name is Tevita and i’m writing from Fremont High.
      I was very impressed on how you made that bridge and the car. Was it hard and did it take long? Did you have fun doing it?

    • Dear Joana,
      Its me Paola I was so impressed that you go to share something from yourself. I love all the detail things that you have and how you talk about dominant narrative and connecting it to the real world. When I was reading your statement I got so connected with you and i love how you talk about were you’re from and kept telling us about you. One sentence that stand out o me was ” It says that women are strong and I really agree with that because most people assume the opposite”(Joana). I totally agree with you people see us as that but don’t really open up. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to see what you write next time.

    • Hi my name is Crystal i am a student in Fremont High School. I liked how you wanted represent yourself and i think that you did a good job. I think your shadowbox ended up looking cute from the inside. Was it hard for you to make the bridge? I’m looking forward to seeing your work in the future

      Thanks for sharing,Crystal

    Dear Eduardo,

    It’s good that you’re writing about this because it’s very important and interesting. You explain everything really well and I understand that you are aware of racism and you want to do something about it. I really like how you took your own time to research more information because it really helps to spread the word so that more p…Read More
