    • 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

      • Thank you so much for reading my blog. The part of your comment that stood out to me was,¨considering one time my dad was driving casually when out of nowhere he hit a pothole and got a flat right on the street.” I liked how you connected your experience to my blog. Look forward to hearing back!

    • 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.

    • 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.
