    • Sugeiry,
      I think it’s very brave of you to acknowledge who you are as a person. It’s not easy being different to everyone else because we are all accustomed to traditional customs and values. Especially now living in a judgmental world it can be challenging and scary to show who we really are. I value your courage to speak up and express to the world that being yourself is more than enough. I admire that you highly speak about your race and embracing your culture because it is an important part of your identity. I am also from Mexico and like how you chose objects that are commonly used in our hometowns to show who we are. Thank you for sharing your shadow box!

      Sincerely,
      Alexandra A.

    • Dear Sugeiry,

      Thanks for sharing about your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really loved reading how you explained how being different is not a bad thing, it’s something we should be proud of. It empowered me and made me realize that we shouldn’t hide our differences; instead we should show and learn to appreciate them. We should love ourselves from where we came from and who we are. Again, thank you for sharing about your shadow box!

      Sincerely,
      Jennifer R.

    • Dear Sugeiry,

      Hi I’m Bianca and I’m a student at San Jose State. I think it’s amazing that you are comfortable with being true to yourself and even if it seems childish to others and it makes you happy then it doesn’t matter what others think. I also enjoy some things that others view as childish but it’s the simply things that I like and it’s good to be different and be yourself.
