      Dear Kara,

      Thank you for sharing your story.

      I really loved how you recognized that although you are not an immigrant yourself that you are still impacted by immigration through your relationship with your friend. Your post can really make people think about how much we can learn from people who are different from us.

      I think it is great that you are interested in other languages. I can imagine you taking courses in Japanese, French, Spanish or any other language for that matter. It would be great because you can move toward bilingualism since you already have English, which is a great language to know.

      It is so important to keep speaking up against bullying so that you can help others avoid what you experienced in your previous school. What do you feel is the best way to change how bullying is handled by school administrators?

      I look forward to reading more of your posts on Youth Voices.

      Sincerely,

      Ms. Lona
