For the Student Blogging Challenge Week 8 Activity, we were required to play a commenting game. So we connected with other students who are a part of the challenge. For the 3 blog posts I commented on, I found all 3 of them to be really relatable to myself.
The 1st post I comment on was Shahreen’s post on Bengali New Year:
Hi Shahreen, I’m glad to say we have something in common! I am also from the beautiful country of Bangladesh. Even though I have been living in Canada all my life, through my parents I have inherited our culture and traditions. I’ve been to Bangladesh twice in lifetime, and always had so much fun. Pohela Boishakh in particular is probably my favorite, and just recently the Bangladeshi community in the city I live in had a huge celebration for the Bengali New Year, and I had the honor of hosting the event! I love your post, and it most certainly got me excited when I found it!
I commented on her post because when I found out we had the same nationality, I automatically loved the post! Especially the fact that the specific celebration she was talking about was one of my favorites, and one that I just recently celebrated with the Bengali community where I live.
The 2nd post I commented on was Mohamed’s post on Arab Cultures:
Hi Mohamed, I really loved your post! I came across it through the Student Blogging Challenge. I am also Muslim, and am very proud to be a part of the religion of Peace. I also go to an Islamic school in Canada, so I am exposed to the Arabian culture a lot, even though I am from Bangladesh. A lot of the teachers at my school are Arab, and teach us the language of Arabic. For our school uniform we have to wear the abaya, and a white head-scarf. Which is why your well-written post really appealed to me!
I commented on his post, because a lot of the things he talked about were things that I encounter in my daily life, as I may not be Arab, but have friends and teachers who are. At my Islamic school, we also have a dress code that matches what he described in his post.
The 3rd and most final post I commented on was Sabrina’s post on Her Passion of becoming a Pediatrician:
Hi Sabrina, I came across your post through the Student Blogging Challenge, and it really appealed to me because a little while back I also wanted to be a Pediatrician. I always loved working with kids and wanted to be a teacher as my mother also works at a daycare, and I helped her with working on her projects and assignments for the classes she had to take, but then again my parents always wished for me to go into the medical field. So then I thought long and hard, and realized that becoming a Pediatrician was working with kids and also being a doctor. I told everyone I wanted to be one, but just recently I started liking Politics, so I changed my mind. However becoming a Pediatrician will always remain to be an option for me! Really great post, I can’t wait to read more from you!
I commented on Sabrina’s very insightful post, because we have too much in common! Really recently, I was literally determined to pursue the career of a Pediatrician. And her reasons why she wants to become one were really similar to mine. Which is why I couldn’t stop myself from commenting!
