  • Thank you very much for reading my blog and taking the time to comment on my blog. I have one question, What is your experience with immigration? What do you think is wrong with Trump’s comments on immigration? Again thank you for reading my blog!

  • Dear Valerie,
    Your blog really summarized all the negative effects on students caused by OUSD. One of my favorite lines was were you stated that food cuts also affects families. It stood out to me because it shows that students aren’t the only ones affected and it makes the problem bigger. You did a great job!!
    Sincerely, Kelly

  • Dear Tania,

    One of my favorite lines from your blog is when you wrote, “This proves how much Trump doesn’t care about humans, but Only the “rich and wealthy” humans because he thinks that those with privilege are people who don’t do anything dangerous”. I like this part because I really agree with what you said, Trump is being racist and classis…[Read more]

  • Dear Wendy,

    I agree with you on that people who deal with suicidal thoughts should have a counselor or someone someone to talk to that they can relate to. I agree because like you said if they can’t relate then the person won’t feel safe or comfortable. Also, the person they are talking to should not judge because then that will make the per…[Read more]

    • Dear Kelly,
      I was very excited to read your blog about immigration because it’s a big problem we have going on right now in the United States. The interviews you did stood out to me because it gives us a perspective from someone who knows about this topic since they have lived it. Some sentences thats stood out from your blog was “Getting harassed while doing normal activities can also be an effect of the words Trump keeps reiterating. Immigrants don’t deserve to experience discrimination and harassment because they don’t come into this country to be corrupt and sinful people”. The reason why this stood out was because this happens to many immigrants since Trump portrays them as bad people who can’t be allowed to live in the United States, but he is wrong because they actually don’t come to hurt no one.

      Sincerely,
      Beatriz

Both my parents are immigrants from El Salvador and they have personal reasons to migrate to this country. I am very sorry that you have had to experience those types of jokes. Have you ever expressed your feelings to the people who joke about your experience? I personally feel like you should because they might not know that their words are really hurtful. Again, thank you for leaving me this comment. :)

    Dear Imelda,

    I think your poem is amazing and very detailed. One part I like is that you put ¨typing¨ to make it seem like someone was actually typing. I like that your poem is relatable. ¨Falling in love is like a Ferris wheel it’s going all good until it stops in the middle you don’t know what’s wrong but you gotta stay strong¨, is one of my…[Read more]

    Dear Beatriz,

    One thing that I like about your poem is that you talked about sexism. I like the topic because it does connect to our society since people think men are better than women. But also sexism connects to Romeo and Juliet since there was many comments made about women needing to get married to a man. I really like how you said, “Their m…[Read more]

    Dear Tania,

    I think you did a great job on your poem about Romeo and Juliet and about love. I love how you repeated the phrase, “Love doesn’t have a meaning, But it does have emotions”. I like this because you can’t describe love in just a couple of words, love is powerful and complicated. I also like how you described how the feeling of love fe…[Read more]

  • This poem talks about the topic of love and how it’s like to be in love. The poem connects love to Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. Love is amazing but can have obstacles which is what my poem describes. Im

    • Dear Kelly

      Thank you so much for sharing your poetry. A line that stood out to me was “Love grew into a tragedy

      But the ultimate tragedy was their agony.” because it really described most of the relationships i’ve witnessed.

      A connection I made to your poem is how committed some people are because that one person in a relationship might be the only person they have.

      Your poem also reminded me of a beautiful description of a love movie.

      Thank you so much for writing and I look forward to reading your next post.

    • Dear Kelly,
      I would like to start off by saying I love how you cite lines from Romeo and Juliet. One of my favorite lines in your poem would have to be “She wears wings that shine with golden light”, this would have to be my favorite line because one you pulled it from the book to show how it connects to Romeo and Juliet. But it also shows that you know how to connect two things and add different styles to your poem.
      Sincerely,
      Kayla

    • Dear Kelly, I am very thrilled to have read your poem because it really showed us the connection to Romeo and Juliet’s love story. I liked how the similes you used especially “she wears wings that shine with golden light”, the reason why I liked it is because you can actually imagine Juliet being like that since she was very happy to be with Romeo. Thank you very much for sharing your poem and I look forward to reading other work you publish.

      Sincerely,
      Beatriz

    • Dear Kelly,
      Your poem is beautiful. I really likes your last line “But the ultimate tragedy was their agony”. That last line was powerful and it rhymed. Looks like you put two topics in and made it all one. I also liked how you used exact lines from the book/film of R&J. Your use of metaphors is really strong and good. Overall your poem is very detailed and it has an amazing meaning to it!
      Sincerely,
      Imelda :))

    I love you shadow box because you have many different pictures and I like how you decorated it. I also like how you build a roof on the top of your box. One part of your shadow box that stands out to me is where you put like I said before the roof. This stood out to me because I think it was a unique idea and I don’t think anybody e…[Read more]

  • Dear Beatriz,

    I love your shadow box I like what you added inside it. I also love your shadow box because of the bay pictures you put in it (you were so cute!!). One part of your shadow box that stands out to me is when you said that people assume that you are not strong because of your gender. This stood out to me because that is very true in…[Read more]

  • Dear Juan Mendoza,

    I really like you shadow box because it has a lot of pictures. I also really like the flags you put to represent where you where from.

    • I personally really enjoyed hearing about your family being Salvadoran. I definitely know that I do not always connect Latina or Latino with being from a state other than Mexico. I often attempt to keep an open mind when I hear the term Latino or Latina because I was never really sure what it meant until recently. I would like to hear more about experiences that you have had concerning being Latina and Salvadoran. I found you story to be interesting and powerful. I now that I have heard the stereotype that the oldest often has the strictest set of rules, but you seem to be taking those rules and standards and raising the bar even higher. That is hard thing to do as a high schooler and also struggling with people thinking you are one person but really you are another.

    • Dear,Kelly i really liked your shadowbox and all the characteristic about it I also liked how you represent girl power and the counter narratives to it but you show the opposite of them which is really amazing and empowering another thing that really stood out for me was the 3 flags that you show pride in all of them but i’m guessing you like mexican pride the most since its the biggest.overall youre shadow box is really good!sincerely, Anthony

    • Hey Kelly,

      I really like how your shadow box embraces multiple identities. One part of your art piece that stands out to me is the “girl power” logo, which shows you embracing this important piece of your identity. It is also great that you decided to include where your family is from because it shows that you are proud about your roots. I look forward to seeing the next thing you post related to breaking down stereotypes and proving society wrong.

  • Dear Yureida Gastelum,

    I am amazed by your shadow box because it has many objects and I love the flowers you added. I love how you added the Mexican flag on the sides because that is a really cool idea. One part of your artwork that stands out for me is is where you added cups of rice and beans on the sides. I think this is unique because I did…[Read more]
