    • Hello Zariya, I enjoyed reading your bio! I feel like we are the same when it comes to being too nice and forgiving, but it is always good and costs nothing to be kind to others. I also enjoy playing the same sports as you, basketball and soccer, but mostly soccer! I look forward to reading more of your posts about you and your siblings.

    • i feel that this is not only a bio, but advice for others that may have hit a roadblock of some sort, if I read this bio when i was in middle school i’d probably have less regrets than i did. For example, in middle school i was competitive when it came to basketball and track and field however, some days I wouldn’t be confident, days with a streak of 3 losses or if I made it in 5th place again so i wasn’t really feeling it those days. if i was told to do everything i do with confidence like your mother told you, there’s a chance i wouldn’t have weighed myself down so much.

    • Zariya, this is a beautiful poem! Although I don’t know you, your writing gave me a vivid image of where you come from. I particularly loved your mentions of Junie B. Jones (I too was a fan) and the very impactful lines about the bullet your dad took for your mom and the loss of your grandfathers. I look forward to reading what you write next!

    • Dear, zariya i am astonished by your poem, “I remember…” because it describes exactly how you’ve grown into the person you are today. You’ve expressed how your personality and creativity is your way out. One line that stood out to me is “I remember losing myself, now i remember myself” I think this line is interesting because it shows how you’ve improved your overall mindset on yourself. Your poem reminds me of my poem “Where I’m From” where i explained how me and my brothers live and how i live day to day. AMOS @jjwoody912
