    • Dear ,
      Thank you for having me read your work. Your blog is very interesting and unique. I also like how you are showing something that others aren’t.
      Sincerely,

    • Dear Xin,
      My name is Nacia and I really enjoyed reading your post because it is organized and very detailed. By that I am talking about when you had the 5 different facts because that really stood out. The reason it stood out is because in the other post I read no one else had it. I also noticed that you have a highlighted part that I tried to read and it was very interesting. Overall you should continue doing the post and to be you, I would love to see what you post next.
      Sincerely,
      Nacia Russell

    • Dear Xin,
      Your blog was very interesting to read. You had really good evidence and explained things very well. I noticed you have 5 facts which are very eyecatching and entertains the reader. Your analysis is pretty good as well, it was very interesting to see what you had to say because I also based my blog on Henreitta Lacks and was interesting to see where we have similarties. But overall very good job on your blog.

      Sincerely,
      Natalie

    • Dear Xin,
      I really like your paragraph because I agree with you when you say that it is not fair that the lower class people get payed less than the higher class people. Something that I really like about your paragraph is when you said ” People is affected by where they live because the place that the poor people are living in are bad unsafe and endangered also small house and this can affecting their health and there is always a shooting next to they houses”. I really like this part because it’s true that there is a higher chance that lower class people can get endangered.
      Sincerely,
      Kimberly

    • Hi Xin!
      I was very interesting in reading this piece of writing. I completely agree with how today’s economic system is in favor of the upper class. In America’s economy especially, there is a shrinking of the middle class, with more and more people falling into the lower class, and barely anyone in the upper class. I agree that we are all born equally, and should be treated as such. I read this article that I think you might like to take a look at: https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2014/9/30/1332869/-America-s-Urban-Facelift-Some-Thoughts-On-Gentrification-In-The-21st-Century

    • Dear Xin,
      I really liked your movie poster as well as the way you summarized Romeo & Juliet. I also really liked how the angels in your movie poster represented east and west in Oakland. You managed to connect Oakland and Romeo & Juliet together and I enjoyed reading about this.

      I look forward to seeing more of your drawings and reading more about the descriptions. Good job!

    • Hey there I’m Jordan, a senior from Fremont High School and I really enjoyed your shadow box project because it had a lot of things that I enjoy myself such as basketball, (the NBA season is back wooo), boneless pizza, and buffalo wings. I have just a couple of questions about your shadow box

      1.How did it feel when you moved to Oakland all the way from China?
      2.What's your favorite team in the NBA?
      3.How long have you been in Oakland and how do you like it over here?

      Sincerely,
      Jordan.

    • Dear xin, I am a student at Fremont High School and i really was impressed on how you’re shadowbox was designed and what really caught my eye was the chinese bill i’ve honestly never seen one so that’s pretty cool. but i have three questions
      1.How’s it like at life academy?
      2.How easy was this project for you?
      3.Where did you get that bill from?

      • In life academy was ok and it pretty cool because there is a lot of new thing s that Ieard.
        The project was not easy because it we need to look from the things that we put on there also I get the chinese bill from china .
        THank you from reading my shadow box.

    • Hello Xin,my name is Julio and I go to Fremont High School I also did a shadow box.I really liked how you used your counter narratives.Your shadow box was cool keep up the good work.

    • Hello Xin,
      My name is Emely, I really like how you talk about both your dominant and counter narratives. That was really nice that you decided to talk about them because you showed that boys can like things like the Eiffel Tower. A question I have for you is what does the chicken represent? Is it one of your favorite foods or does it mean something else to you? Overall I really liked what you added in your shadow box. I also learned a lot about you from reading you artist statement.

    • Dear Xin,

      Thank you for sharing your work. My name is Jorge S and I am a student at Fremont High School.
      Something I liked about your work was how you describe everything on the box.
      Something I have a question about is why do you like the Eiffel Tower. Please feel free to comment on my work in the future. The address of my student blog is https://jorgesfhs2021.edublogs.org.
      Thank You!

    • Dear Xing,
      I am intrigued about your shadow box because it shows who you really are and how you want people to view you instead of others portraying you. Also it shows a lot about your culture that I feel that should stick with you forever and to not be forgotten about your origins. I really liked how you just let everything go into this box and be unafraid of what other say. Keep up the work.
