    Which chips off so many things

    • Hi! My name is Jason and I am writing from Fremont High School.
      I was impressed that you were into ballet! I never knew anyone from Oakland had that interest. Why do you think that is a counter narrative for you to be into ballet?

    • Hey, Im una from Fremont High School. I like how colorful your shadowbox is. I heard that you´ve been to mexico! Do you like it in Mexico? I heard that it´s really nice out there. Do the beads mean a lot to you?

    • Hey there, I’m Lanavia, and I’m from fremont. I like the way you used your culture in your shadow box. I also heard that you visit mexico often! I’ve never been there, but id like to visit. Why did you use jewlery in your shadowbox?

    • Hi I’m Lanavia from Fremont High School i like the way you made the little colorful chan hang from the top part. I also like that how in your shadowbox you did a good job by making it creative. That’s really good that you was feeling good with putting your little shoes in the box and all the other stuff. I feel like you really did a good job

    • Hi,
      I’m Violet from Okemos High School. I enjoyed learning a little bit more about yourself through objects. Even though we are strangers I fell like I’ve learned about you. I hope to read more form you in the near future.

    • Hi my name is Tevita and i’m writing Fremont High.
      I see there a bear in your box. I like that because bears are my favorite animal. Do you even like bears? Or is it just there for decorations?
