• Dear, Miguel
    I was excited on reading your blog because the way you are talking about how immigrants are humans too. And how they need to have the same amount of rights as americans in the United States.One thing that I liked about your blog is that how you are able to support others. And something that you wrote is that you were talking about…[Read more]

    • I really like how you looked at bullying from a lot of different angles. You gave, not only consequences that can happen as a result of bullying, but also ways to prevent it in the first place. Though these solutions are a really good start, how can we really look at the root causes of bullying and try to destroy the root of it? Here is an article that discusses the roots of bullying and some possible reasons that it goes on in schools http://www.veanea.org/home/940.htm

    Dear, Christina

    I like your shadow box because it shows on your little essay that you like nature, and exploring the world. And I can see that you have a dream school and that is a goal you would like to meet some day for you can be a zoologist or vetnerania.

    • Dear,Jose I really like your shadow box and how you represent your own culture and how you go against your counter narrative of people assuming every brown skin is mexican but we have are own cultures.another thing that you did that really amazed me was although you’re from guatemala you still show mexican pride!Overall your shadow box really show you,sincerely, anthony

    • Dear Jose Rivas,

      I am glad about your shadow box because it looks very nice. You did a great job on this. A sentence that stood out to me is ¨When people look at they would usually think I’m a Mexican but I’m a Guatemalan mixed with Salvadoran.Many people assume that I’m an immigrant,even though I’m American¨, because your saying the dominant narratives you have, but then proving them wrong like how you’re ¨Guatemalan mixed with Salvadoran¨. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this shadow box was great, so I’m sure your next work will be good, but maybe even better.
