  • Dear Angela,

    I like how you went out your way and talk about how your relationship to your name isnt as significant. You were being real and giving your point of view about your name. I agree with you when you said our name were chosen for us. Great work!!

    This is really describing who you are and who you want to be. You are original and being yourself and that’s real!

    Anthony Mariano Arellano is not just my name. It makes up who I am. Where I come from. It makes me feel like myself and it makes me take on a part of my roots with me everyday.

    Anthony may sound like a normal

    • Dear tonya,

      I really liked your piece because it brought tears to my eyes. This was a very unique way or writing out your own meaning of your name especially the part where you took apart the letters. This was inspiring, emotional, and it made me feel closer to you. Great work!

    • Dear Tony,
      I am grateful for being able to read your blog on the meaning of your name. One sentence you wrote that really stands out to me is “Anthony may sound like a normal name to you. However, I have gotten different nicknames from it. Tony. Ant. Most people call me Tony which is what I am used to. Ant, on the other hand, is more unique. It makes me think of the insect, but it is an original nickname. I hardly get called Anthony, so it feels weird when people call me Anthony.”. This stands out to me because you sound proud of your name and your nicknames especially. Another part that stood out to me was how you explained letter by letter what it means to you. Thank you for writing. I look forward seeing what you write next, because your a good writer.

    • Dear Tony
      i like that you wrote about your name and what it means to you one thing that stood out to me is this “Anthony may sound like a normal name to you. However, I have gotten different nicknames from it. Tony. Ant. Most people call me Tony which is what I am used to. Ant, on the other hand, is more unique. It makes me think of the insect, but it is an original nickname. I hardly get called Anthony, so it feels weird when people call me Anthony” i feel the same way when people call me by my first name because im so use to people calling me Leo also that you explain what your middle name comes from and why is special to you , And i hope to see more post from you because your a great writer.

    • “A means active, full of energy. N is for neat and organized. T is for tactful. H is for heroic, standing out to help. O is for outstanding. N is for nurturing, caring for others. Y is for Yes, believing in myself.” — What a lovely, amazing line! So you 🙂

  • Dear Leslie,

    I am moved by your post, “Education and Immigration in Oakland,” because I also believe that these two topics are extremely important. One sentence that I agree with was, “They should have the same opportunities as if a legal student would have because they did not have a say to be undocumented so they should have a say now for their…Read More

  • Dear Gildardo,

    I am intrigued by your post, “Professional Soccer In Oakland,” because I also believe that having a professional soccer team in Oakland is a good idea. One sentence that stood out to me was, “Firstly, Oakland needs a professional team because it would inspire Oakland kids.” because I completely agree and this would allow inspired…Read More

  • Dear Melody,

    I am moved by your post, “Feed the Hungry not the Streets” because you provide a lot of detail and your argument is very strong because of that. Homelessness is a very big issue happening in the world and I like how you explain that no one should be left without food or shelter, no matter what. I like the statistics you provided bec…Read More
