      Dear Allison:
      I am impressed with your poem “My Life in La Troncal, Ecuador,” because it expresses what you are made of very well. Reading about your life in Ecuador was very interesting to me.

      One sentence that stands out to me is: “I am made of a girl playing on the large rocks next to the blue ocean.” I think this is excellent because it creates a picture in my mind of the setting you grew up in.

      Another sentence that I enjoyed was: “I always wait for the 53rd street train R to arrive.” I think this is important because it brings another aspect to your poem.

      Your poem reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I went on a vacation to California. The setting in your story reminded me of that in California. With the big blue ocean near the gigantic rocks, both places are similar in a way.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really enjoyed this piece. Your descriptions were very compelling and I could imagine your thoughts.
