    • That must’ve been one of the best times to take those photos, that balcony is a big part of your life huh?

    • Dear Julissa:

      I am amazed by the image I can picture in your poem, “My View Of the East River,” because of the sentence when I was little, I would sit out on my balcony with my feet up on the railing at sunset.

      One line that stands out for me is, “ Whenever i’m on my balcony I feel kind of relaxed and peaceful because i’m away from everything yet I still have a sense of feeling like I am outside.” I think this line is relate-able because whenever I am trying to relax I will go out to my balcony to relax and get my mind right.
      Another line that stands out for me is, ” I was still grateful for the fact that she thought about buying me the camera because she saw I was interested in photography.” I think this line is amazing because it shows how much you love taking pictures and how grateful you are .

      Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Your poem makes me picture what you are doing and makes me picture the beautiful view.

    • It’s funny how you decided to choose the old-fashioned camera besides the advanced one because it took all the fun out of it, I also find it nice on how even though you didn’t like the camera, you accepted it anyway as a gift from your mom. Even though that sort of backfired when you gave it to your sister and your mother got mad.

    • Dear Julissa,

      It’s funny how in “My view of the East River” you decided to choose the old-fashioned camera besides the advanced one because it took all the fun out of it, I also find it nice on how even though you didn’t like the camera, you accepted it anyway as a gift from your mom. Even though that sort of backfired when you gave it to your sister and your mother got mad.

      One line that stands out for me is, “I was still grateful for the fact that she thought about buying me the camera because she saw i was interested in photography.” because it’s good that you even realized that your mom was thinking about you at that age(guessing very young because you said “when i was little”).
      Another line that stands out for me is “Whenever i’m on my balcony i feel kind of relaxed and peaceful because i’m away from everything yet i still have a sense of feeling like i am outside.” because I can relate, whenever I’m stressed out there’s a calm quiet place in central park that I go to.
      Thanks for writing this and I look forward to see your other writing pieces!

    • The view of this is beautiful and seems like such a peaceful place to be at, you were very lucky to be able to enjoy this view.

    • That is a very beautiful picture. For some reason it reminds me of the Chicago lakeshore at night, the part where you are crossing over the Chicago river and turn to the city and can catch a glimpse at all the buildings. It seems like a really calm and cozy place to live it has inspired me to move to a similar place one day

    • That’s cool that you have so many interests! I relate because there are so many things I wish I could do in life, but I know that I can’t do it all. Right now I’m thinking about going into business to try and help LGBTQ+ people get access to things that they need. I want to do that because of one of my past experiences. Do you have any other memories that shape what you’re interested in?

    • Dear Julissa,
      Your bio is really well written. You do an amazing job describing yourself. I definitely agree with you when you say you think you’re a great dancer. You have so many different interests and its so cool. You have really great goals. I really like that you make personal connections throughout your writing. The memory you gave us is really interesting. It gave me a different aspect about you.
      I like how you are also looking into the future a bit. I to am looking into the future and thinking about what I want to deal with my life. I personally think you should do something that involves helping people. You’re so helpfully and bubbly. You do a great job at making everyone smile.
      I can’t wait to see more of your work.

    • you seem to have been into a lot of sports, according to the “etc. ” you seem to have a wide imagination, though i cannot relate to much because i dont have a brother or sister

      ya heard?

  • Hey HAILEY i love your story in every way because it reminds me of my life, i don’t really have to take care of anyone like 24/7 and for that i think you are very smart and strong to be able to cope with taking care of yourself and your little sister. I have a 4 year-old nephew and a 7- month old niece, i have to help/ sometimes i volunteer to…Read More

  • I like how you searched for information explaining how different your life could of been if you weren’t born into your family that are construction workers. But how you realized it was for a good reason because you know how to do a lot more than the average teen. It also can benefit you in life, so i’m glad you found out that construction working/…Read More
