    • I love that your grandmother at first said all of the memories she has had with you are great. She sounds like a very special person. It is very good that you are still close with her even though you live apart. She is being very safe by wearing a mask when she goes out! I hope she stays healthy and happy during this time of COVID. Thank you for sharing your grandmother with us.

    • Your story is so amazing, I can’t believe how hard it would be to leave everything behind but you are proof that it is possible to succeed in a new place. I love how you could either read your story like normal or see it through the views of a comic. I bet it took a lot of time and it makes your story so multidimensional to a reader. I’d love to see more animations from you!

    • 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.
