      I really liked your shadow box. I like the wide variety of objects. From stuffed animals, to sea shells, and tape (if that is tape, its hard to tell). I especially love the Rosie the Riveter.

    • Leslie, I really enjoyed reading about what others think of you contrasting with who you know you are. It was interesting for me to hear about your experience as a Latina and how it has shaped you. I also enjoyed reading about stereotypes that people inherently place on you, and how you have overcome these stereotypes in your own life. I found it inspiring when you said that “Many people assume a lot of things about me like; I’m weak, Latino/a are not good at school, or because my race is Latina, have Mexican blood I have to be a member of the Catholic religion, but those dominant narratives are incorrect. I’m a strong female”. This statement demonstrates your high sense of self worth and helps me to gain a better understanding of how strong you really are. Thank you for letting me read, I hope to see more from you in the future. -Reilly

    • Hello Leslie,
      My name is Luz Morales I attend to Fremont High and I really like your shadow box because I can relate to your story as a latina I know what it feels like to be marginalized in a box full of stereotypical beliefs. One of the things that I really liked about this piece was the part where you talked about your religion, it would be great if you talked about it more, it sounds really interesting! Another thing I really liked was the way you connected the phoenix bird to you.
