Dear Katelyn Nguyen, I am enlightened by your poem, “Hurricane Michael” because I didn’t know much about this hurricane and its impact before. It was sad learning about how the community was destroyed by this event but also helpful because I now know about it and can inform others. ...

Hi Erica, Thank you for reading and replying to my blog! I believe that by talking about identities and their intersectionality in general, a space is created to recognize how sexuality and gender expression can be included because we discuss how our identities can be impacted/harmed. However, our Ethnic Studies class...

Dear Mikayla, Thank you for reading and replying to my poem! A line that stood out to me was when you talked about the connection you made with my poem and a movie you saw. What movie is that? Why did it connect to my poem? Did it connect...

Dear Wendy, Thanks for reading and replying to my blog!:) I wanted to adress what you said when you wrote "I didn't really think about this topic but you made it relevent...". Why didn't you think about it before? What can people be doing to make the topic more...

Dear Wendy, Your blog is super important and necessary for everyone to read. I like how you emphasized the need to end stigma around depression and suicide but also the pros and cons of counseling. Maybe you could have included some alternatives to counseling. Also, you mentioned that a student...

Dear Calvin, I really enjoyed reading your blog because your argument was clear. I agree with what you said about how Oakland’s diversity represents its history. That was extremely well written and hella true. Another part I really liked was your ending where you wrote, “The gentrifiers are causing...

Dear Kalani, I love how your poem talked about the topics of love, violence, pain, and drugs because it shows how they constantly intertwine. You did a good job on connecting how Romeo and Juliet see love and how you see it. I am confident many will find it...
