I am excited with your poem because you explain something important in your life but with specific details.
One thing I learned from your writing that stood out for me is: “Isiah, you’re going to be a big brother.” I think this is interesting. You’re gonna be a big brother and your mom told you, that means a lot because it is so cu…Read More

I really enjoyed reading your poem, “The Biggest Change of My Life”. It is very touching and the tone made it very interesting to read as it sounds so calm explaining such a big change. The personal picture you added also adds to the poem making it interesting to read as it is a picture of your travels.
When you said “I understand but this is a opportunity for a better future for you and sister” it really stood out to me. My parents also immigrated to the U.S. for a better future for all their kids and you including this in your poem displays the selflessness immigrant parents have for their kids. I read the book “Call me American” which also connects to immigrating to new and unknown places.
I really enjoyed your poem as it lets me know something about you and what you have experienced. I liked the tone you used and how you made it easy to read. I especially liked that you took us from before you left Ecuador to arriving and starting your life in New York. I really appreciate you sharing this part of your life and hope to read more of your posts in the future. I hope you and your family are living the life you traveled here for.

I am impressed by your post, “The Biggest Change of My Life,” because it is impressive how calm you sound to be moving to a different country. I think it’s impressive that you are going to slowly adapt to a new atmosphere.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I understand but this is a opportunity for a better future for you and sister.” I think this is awesome because parents go the extra mile to make sure their kids have a better future even if it is in a completely different country.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because of how you expressed emotion. I would like you to continue telling me about what is the hardest thing you had to adapt to.
