    • I want to see your piece better… Can you edit by making the photo larger?

    • Dear Yahaira,
      I enjoyed reading your comic. Thank you for sharing this part of your life. I taught your comic was organized and descriptive. I liked that you mentioned you thoughts about your mom leaving and that your mom also said how she wished she could’ve brought you with her. I look forward to seeing more of your writing and drawings.

    • Dear Yahaira,
      I like your comic because it was easy and clear to understand. You draw really good, and I can see how you were really feeling when your mom had leave. I hope I see more of your work in the future.

    • Dear yahaira,
      this is such an interesting piece you have created. It must have been hard to separate with you mom, to such a far place for a long time. I would have been so terrified. I also like how you added your mom’s thought about the situation. I hope you guys have reconnected in some way, and that you women are making memories together.

    • Dear Yahaira,
      I liked the way you wrote your poem because it was very descriptive. Almost if I was there. A sentence that stood out to me was, “Awkwardly hearing.Awkwardly speaking.Awkwardly sitting.” because it shows how you felt at that time. I think you have gone through a lot based on what you have posted in your recent post but you have managed to keep your head up high and move on although it must’ve been hard. Thanks your writing. I look forward to reading more of your writing because it’s going to be even better.

    • Dear Yaharia,
      Your poem was very descriptive and vivid. While i was reading i was able to imagine in my head the actual scene that occured. i like your poem in general….good job

    • Thanks for writing about something that may not be easy, and allowing people to see this.
      You can really tell by your writing that you are independent. Such a great poem, and really does describe your characteristic as a strong person. Thanks again for writing this amazing poem. Hope to see more of your writing soon.

    • Yahaira, Thanks for your poem! This poem stood out for me because I can relate to it. Inspired me to be strong for myself. I look forward to seeing your next post 🙂

    • Your poem is raw and real and INSPIRING. You are so strong and so remarkable. I’m honored to know you.

    • Hey partner,
      Thanks for sharing your story about your name. Good job, on expressing your name very well even though it is a “random chosen name”, you bring the real meaning to it. Really love this memoir. Write more, cause I enjoy reading pieces by you.

    • Dear Yahaira,
      I am impressed by your name memoir because you are very detailed on why exactly you are proud of having your name. You also talk about your dads part of the family and you can be strong and happy without them but family still means a lot to you. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was when you said, “ Lastly, one of the most common Mexican last names,Garcia.I inherited Garcia from my beautiful mother and grandma.I also hope to inherit their power, hardwork, and determination.My mom has worked,really hard,since age six to be able to help her huge family.After all the obstacles she has been through,she manages to keep a smile in her face”. This stood out to me because I can relate to my mom always working hard and always keeping a smile on her face. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your writing is interesting.
      Sincerely,
      Grady

    • Dear Yahaira,
      I am surprised by your post because you truly explain who you are because of your name. I like all of your post. I enjoyed reading it. Your post got me thinking about what my name means to me and why my parents decided to name me like this. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.
