    Dear Jose, I feel that your topic is an issue the government is not helping considering the situation. Overall your argument was strong and I didn’t feel lost in your article. Furthermore, one sentence that stood out to me was, ̈This is true because immigrants come to the United States for a better life.̈ This stood out to me because your who…[Read more]

  • Dear jacob, I liked reading this article because you gave two different thoughts about the move. I agree with the fact that the city feels abandoned. I feel the warrios gave Oakland more importance then what it has and now its taken away. Anyway thank you, I enjoyed reading your article.

    Dear Amilia, I liked you article a lot and I didnt know that many people got kidnapped. As a person who partailly watches the news in the afternoon I am not informed this many kidnaps, but What are the reasons of the kidnappings? Which age group is it? Which area is it most likely happening in? I think that this topic should be seen more on the…[Read more]

    Dear Sugeiry, You article was one interesting one I didnt think I would come upon. I wasnt aware that Opiods led to a lot of homeless people in Oakland, and I am glad you put that out there. Teens being surrounding by it is not good as well, itll lead them under the freeway like most homeless people becoming like them. You article informed me a…[Read more]

  • Dear Angel, as a reader I acknoledge that you were focusing on homelessness in Oakland and did a good job explaing the problem. It must be a complicated subject because you have to find accurate evidence to support this issue fro both areas. I both agree and disagree with your point on Oakland not doing enough to help the homeless because I dont…[Read more]

  • Dear America, I feel through this article you care for immigrants and their rights being taken away from them. Being seperated from your family can really change a person, and not in a good way. I see Trump is making racist decisions and isnt thinking about how these families are being treated and how they feel about it. People in the government…[Read more]

      Dear Yadira, I think your article was awesome and very relatable to the residents of Oakland. I liked that you explained how Oakland is trying to fix these streets but, sadly they don’t have enough money. Something that really popped out to me was when you said, “That’s a lot of money just for potholes and the Oakland budget is inadequately small compared to the renovation Oakland needs. Oakland residents are mad but don’t do anything to change this problem”(Yadira). That line is 100% true because Oakand is not getting enough funding for these streets because they need to tax people more in order to get more money. At the same time this is a bad and good thing because even though Oaklnd is not fixing their streets they are also not charging as much tax which shows they are sort of being good to us. I agree with your point because there were times where you would say people would get mad at potholes which is very relatable considering one time my dad was driving casually when out of nowhere he hit a pothole and got a flat right on the street. So yes I agree with you all the way and believe that you’re onto something for more support go to, “https://www.sfgate.com/local/article/potholes-oakland-bad-roads-how-to-fix-report-13817984.php”. In this article they talk about people who go out at night to fix bay areas potholes. This may be illegal, but at least they are actually doing something that Oakland isn’t doing to help the community be safe. Not only are potholes annoying but can be really dangerous if you lose control. Thanks for letting me read your article, I really enjoyed your reasoning and up class vocab. These little things made your article sound very proper. Next time I see you I hope to see more of these great writing along with more grammar and typo fixes. Overall I really enjoyed your article.
      Sincerely, Angel

      Dear Yadira,

      I think your post was really good because you got really good pictures to prove your point about pavement in Oakland. A line that stood out to me was “Oakland residents are mad but don’t do anything to change this problem.” because I agree with you and we should change this problem.i agree with your point about pavement and the government should change this problem. Thanks for writing and keep it up.

  • Dear Johana

    You did a good job explaining how you don’t fit all the dominant narratives. I really like how you put the wall around the shadow box to represent your parents struggle. I didn’t know what the clouds represented until your explicit explaining
    Helped me understand what it was for. Overall you did great in your shadow box and u enj…[Read more]

  • My Truths

    By: Yadira BugambiliaI don’t have many objects in my shadow box, just images of my family and friends. It might seem plain to others but not to me. Friends and family are all I really care about. I

    • Hey Yadira,
      I am Denisse, an 18 year old attending the university of San Jose. I really admire your shadow box and description that you wrote! I like the way you incorporated your family into it, making them the people you honor the most. I complete agree with you family are the most important people we should care about, there no others like them! The thing that stood out to me the most from your shadow box was the Mexican colors you created from the flag that is really creative, to include your roots. I am Mexican as well, and have the same dominant narratives as you. Everyone thinks that all Mexicans are drug dealers, rapist, dirty, and here to make America a bad place, but that doesn’t identify all of us. I am really glad that at your age you know that all these things don’t belong to everyone and you know who you really are. Just keep in mind not to pay attention to everything they say about us, ignore them, and keep being yourself in every way!

    • Hi Yadira,
      I am Maggie, a student from San Jose state university. I love how you mentioned family and friends means the most to you because I think that’s very true and I feel the same as you. It is great knowing that you ignore what other people assumed you based on your race and just really being yourself.
