    • Dear Manuel,

      I am excited about your post because you wrote very well in your post

      One thing you said that stand out for me is: “ I dream of making people happy and help them.” I think this is interesting because I want to this too.

      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you did very well in this post. I want to read more story about you.
