this is such an interesting piece you have created. It must have been hard to separate with you mom, to such a far place for a long time. I would have been so terrified. I also like how you added your mom’s thought about the situation. I hope you guys have reconnected in some way, and that you women are making memories together.

I hope you will pursue something that will bring you that kind of interest and pleasure. you are very intelligent and curious indeed. Don’t let anything hold you back and keep…Read More
I like how you write about one tradition you have and enjoy with your family. I have some too, but sometimes I feel we are slowly loosing them, I hope you hold onto yours.

I like how you write about your relationship with your brothers. You show that no matter what happens between you guys, family will always win and ya’ll stick together no matter what.

My dear Yaqui,
when you write the lines “The world is already cold, Family is supposed to give you that warmth, That warmth you need to survive the cold”, I had the chills, because I totally agree with these words.

I really like this comic you have put together. It really shows the different relationships you can have with friends and family. There will always be someone there, for us in a time of need.
I like how much you have changed, since this day had occurred. You make yourself look shy and indecisive then, but now I believe you have grown to be more outgoing and you seem to know what you want to do. By the looks of it your parents are pretty accepting to the choices to make. I hope soccer makes you a happy and better person!
I really enjoyed this memoir poem that you created about a trip you took. I’m truly sorry and sad that you had to go through with such an amazing time, but then it was somehow made bad, because of one person and their actions towards you. Sometimes people have a strong effect on the world around us. I am however glad that you chose to be…Read More

Starting over, starting fresh
It’s a new year, time for a different attitude
But I will stay as the same me
I was ready to face the world
The only thing on my mind was school
Making new relationships...

Nina… Nina… Nina
Three little letters
They make up my two syllable name
No one else has this name in the family
Nina is unique
Just Nina; no nickname
Nina… short and simple
The opposite of who I am
Nina… A new yellow flower;...
I really like the article you have written, the tittle took my attention and made me want to know more about the actions and emotions that we allow to take control over our body.
