    • Leslie, this is the best article I have been reading so far! I highly agree on the two topics that matter the most, Immigration and Education. I love how every paragraph is connected to one another making your reasoning very strong. You talked about two heavy topics that are usually sensitive, but you made it very clear on what you’re purpose is.

    • Dear leslie ,

      Thank you for sharing your work. My name is kamron and I am a student at Fremont High School.
      Something I liked about your work was how your box has things hanging from it its looks very creative
      Something I have a question about is what made you come up with hanging things from your box. Please feel free to comment on my work in the future. The address of my student blog is http://kamrondfhs2021.edublogs.org/.
      Thank You!

    • Dear Leslie,
      I am thankful that you wrote, “Education and Immigration in Oakland” because I am undocumented too and I believe that I have the same opportunities as every American. Just because you are an immigrant doesn’t mean you can’t do what other people can. That is why I am thankful that you decided to write about this very important issue that has being going on in the world and our communities. A sentence that stood out to me was, “In fact, the united states is the land of opportunity there are great places to work and to have a great education which should be offered to other people too no matter the status.” I think this is very true because there are more opportunities here in the U.S then in your home country. This matters because everyone deserves to be treated equally and have the same opportunities as everyone no matter their status. I am very lucky to have gotten a good education and go to college because I received financial help and had the same opportunities as my classmates. Thanks for your writing. I appreciate that you focused on this topic because is something that affects a lot of people. I look forward to seeing what you write next because its going to contain more interviews from people being affected by the issue and good information for everyone to be aware.

    • Dear Leslie,

      I am moved by your post, “Education and Immigration in Oakland,” because I also believe that these two topics are extremely important. One sentence that I agree with was, “They should have the same opportunities as if a legal student would have because they did not have a say to be undocumented so they should have a say now for their education.” because I think this should be common sense. Every student should have the same rights regardless of what their documentation status is. I also found it very powerful how you used strong statistics to showcase the severity of this issue.

      Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

    • Leslie,
      I agree with your points. I also like the small interviews you did. It also struck me when the anonymous person said that she is surviving. Almost like she’s not getting any benefits from living here. Which is true, because through my research, I found illegal immigrants put so much into the society through paying taxes, fueling their money into the economy through consumption, and working all the jobs that American citizens don’t wanna do themselves.

  • Dear Destiny,

    I definitely agree with you me as being female I have asked myself those questions too. But although we are a minority as you may say we will always stand strong no matter what. That’s the best thing about it. One line that stood out to me was where you stated, “Women get paid on average 60-75% of a man’s wage yet they work at l…[Read more]

  • Dear Eduardo,

    I love you post and what you agreeing with in fact I agree with you. I love the line where you said, ” Something I would tell the leaders of America is that if we work together our bonds will become stronger and our economy would be more efficient.” I definitely agree with you I wish leaders from american would understand too.…[Read more]

      Dear Leslie,
      I really liked your post of how you shared your experience when you were a little girl. But at the same time describing the objects you had in your shadow box because when I saw the image I thought of a different significance. This connects to me somehow because i wasn’t born in America i’m a Guatemalan girl and I feel proud of that because it makes me feel more powerful in this society were females get treated different. Also I agree with you for the last part of your story of how womans get suppressed in this society. But as how you say, you winning that metal describes another meaning of you as a female.

      Some questions that I have are:
      How did you feel about money when you hadn’t visit your motherland, Mexico?
      Is there a person who has helped you in your struggles when you most needed them?
      You seeing the problem that woman’s face in this society. How would you like to make a difference in the future, if you could do something?

      Hope you write more about your stories because they are unique and I really enjoyed reading your post.

      Sincerely,
      Olga

      • Dear Olga,
        Thank you for commenting on my post! I enjoyed reading your reply. Wow I love that you hvae so many questions! Hmm… How I felt about money well honestly I didn’t care much about it, but I also did not spend so much money or save it up ethier. But once I saw the real struggle I value it more. I didn’t really have a support system at that time but I would like to say I do right now. To make a difference as a women I would make groups of women and try to fight for our rights and I think I would also make a movement as how we have one right not but way more divers of course. There has been many cases where not alot of women of color have say as much as white women would so I would want to change that.
        Thank you for commenting, Leslie

  • Dear John Penitani,

    I agree with your post ¨Leaders, A Letter about Teanagers¨ because People in our society should be aware of what they inflict onto us as a community it will also inflict with our future.
