    • Hello, I am Mayu Wise from San Jose State University. I really love your shadow box, it is very well created and includes many things that has a background to it. It really expresses your culture and it is very interesting to me because I do not know much about Mexico. Your description about each of the items is something I didn’t know about so I was able to learn from your shadow box! I am the only child, so it must be so nice to have siblings, and I could really tell you love and care for your family!

    • Dear Yamilex,
      I am ecstatic by your shadow box because you talk about your family a lot and how much you love them and i think some people don’t notice or thank their family a lot and to see someone do that is touching to the heart. Also because the way you state your words is loving and truthful. One part that stood out to me was when you still mentioned your family that has past away. It seems like you put your heart into it.

      Hello Yamilex,
      My name is Maria 🙂 I really love your shadow box, even though I don’t know you personally I think it captures who you are perfectly. One thing I especially the fact that you added the little mini versions of the jara, cantarito, etc. not only added a cute aesthetic for your box, it also demonstrated how beautiful day to day Mexican life is. I was kind off shocked that you added pictures of your loved ones who have passed away because I personally I would probably would’ve never thought to put them on the shadow box. Overall, I really loved the seeing your shadow box and reading your explanation.
      I just have a question, does the rosary have an important significance on your identity?
      Thanks for sharing,
      Maria T.
