• Dear Lisseth,

    Thank you for writing about your nickname and letting us know more about it. I’m glad you have a positive relationship to your nickname because sometimes people are given nicknames that they don’t like. I can relate to having multiple nicknames because of my culture. I also have a positive connection with them, so that’s something…[Read more]

    Hi Lis,
    Thank you for sharing your work with us. I appreciate the strength you had to write something personal that you don’t have a positive relationship to. Life doesn’t always result the way we would like to, but we just have 4o live with it. I’m glad that you found a name that you can actually connect to.

    Hope to see more of your work…[Read more]

      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.

    • Good job ! 😛

A sentence that stood out to me was, “But I have come to a conclusion that any where I live it would always be different.” I agree with this quote because nothing will feel like home, the place that we have lived at for most of our time. I haven’t…[Read more]

  • Dear Luz,
    I am amazed by the number of things I could relate to in your post by being a Latina. One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is, “You must stop trying to change, this is the way life has been for many years, you’re a girl and you must act like one.” This is because I feel that all those stereotypes that have been made are k…[Read more]

  • Dear Melany,
    I am amazed by your post, “A Box Of My Life,” because there is a lot that I can relate to. To start off, I also did many things that were “weird” or “unknown” for a girl to do. I would help out my dad at his job sites and would be used to it. Recently, my parents separated and it was a big impact for me since I shared most of my time…[Read more]
