    • Dear Jovana,
      Thanks for sharing this special moment in your life. I enjoyed reading this comic because is really nice the way you arranged the panels. I liked the last panel because it’s very sweet when you saw your grandma after 13 years. I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

    • Dear Jovana,
      I enjoyed reading your poem about your family because it’s very honest. You talked about your auntie dying from breast cancer and how you saw her fought this battle until you couldn’t see her anymore. One sentence that stood out to me was, “I’m blessed to have a family that I can count on who can support me and be there for me even when we are going through tough situations.” I think this is something very important that you can count on your family. Every child needs and support from their family. You are really blessed that you have a family that supports you through difficult times like the death of your auntie. You are very strong to share something so personal in your life. Thank you for sharing about your family. I look forward to see what you are going to write next because it’s going to be raw.

    • Jovanna, Thank you for your writing. This poem stood out for me because I can relate to it.

    • Dear Jovana,
      I really enjoyed reading your poem, you wrote it really good. I agree with you on the undocumented parents and them giving us everything. You used good grammar and everything is really well put. I hope to read more posts from you.

    • Thank you Jovana for sharing with us why are you ambitious. I liked how your worded your poem and how you expressed what you really feel.I agree with what you said that you have to work hard for what you want and through this poem I now understand why are you so ambitious.

    • Dear Jovana,
      I feel really honored to read your work, “Reflection on My name”. It filled me with so much happiness because how thoughtful it seemed. Your work reminded me of a poem so for that I saw so much creativity. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “These names defining who I am now and who I will become in the future.”. I think this is a brilliant sentence. I felt that this stood out because how much truthfulness it shows. It’s very true that the name will make up who you are based on whether you choose to go by that name. Also names are so important in others eyes I feel like names can affect the future as well. Another sentence I saw that stood out to me was, “You will forever be my motivation to continue and follow my dreams.”. This stood out to me because it can relate to me as well. My parents are my motivation to the future so it was nice to see that in your life as well. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your work shows creativity and has a really nice feeling towards it. I hope to see some more poems or general writing, it’d be very nice. Please reply if you’d like :).
