    • Estimada Maria:

      Estoy asombrada por tu poema, “De donde soy,” porque aprendí de una cultura nueva que nunca había escuchado. Yo soy de El Salvador y vivo en California.

      Una frase que escribiste que se destaca para mi es “De mi padre, Pervez diciendo: ‘Es hora de ir a la cama, Maria’ y mi madre Tanzeela diciendo ‘Es peligroso afuera’” porque muchos de los papas de mi comunidad les dicen las mismas cosas a sus hijos. Veo que somos muy diferentes de algunas maneras, pero iguales en otras maneras.

      Gracias por tu escritura. Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación, porque quiero aprender mas sobre tu cultura. Cual es tu tradición favorita?

      Monica

    • Dear Maria,
      I am interesting in your neighborhood your post because I never go to the GRAVESEND that why I should look go around in Brooklyn.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “my family they become good friends because my neighbor speak Urdu and my family too so is easy to communicate with them. ” I think this is good because EG- In my neighborhood speak English and Spanish but my mother can’t too much speak English and also she can’t speak Spanish. So she can’t communicated with them.
      Another sentence that I like is “We enjoy with our neighbor so much and sometime we eat together. Also, we go sometime park, grocery, and shopping store. This stood out for me because it’s really nice.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I need to more communicate with my neighborhood. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really like about your neighborhood and your writing is clear to reading.

      Sincerely
      May
