    • Dear Melody,
      I really like your box and your counter narrative about your box. I agree with you that family is everything to you. I also agree with you about growing up without your father and I can relate to you about that since my father left me when I was younger. Other things I agree with you is about being a student and also about Latina.

    • Dear Melody,
      I am moved by your post “Me,myself and I” because it was very detailed and you really explained parts of your identity. One part of your statement that stands out to me is when you placed pictures of people you love because it just means you really care about them. Another part that liked was when you described your ethnicity you said you are proud of being Mexican. Thanks for your shadow box and shadow box statement. I look forward to seeing what you make next, because you did a good job on describing everything you are proud of and it just made everything more interesting.

    • Dear Melody,

      Your article “Me, myself, and I ” is outstanding, and the sensory deatils used in your post really helps the reader and enabled me to imagine your story in my mind. I also enjoyed the fact that I can connect to your article because being a Mexican American is not easy and stereotypes affect the way we are viewed but I admire your endurance to not give up and keep on being yourself despite many people trying to affect the way you are. I am loooking forward to seeing what you post next.

    • Dear Melody,
      Here are three questions to further your thinking. How do the images in your box show your struggles and inspirations? Have you ever traveleed to Mexico? Can living under a certain environment change a person?.
