Student Writing: Eva’s “The Relationship”

Friends are generous to one another.

They are helpful. When you get bullied, your friends stand up for you. They’re kind to you. You can trust them. That’s called being “trustworthy.” Friends are funny. What would you do without a funny friend?

There are many ways for someone to stand up for you. One way that a friend can stand up for you is by telling that person the person that’s bugging you to leave you alone. Another way is that they can tell an adult that someone is bullying you. To be trustworthy means that when you share a secret or a family thing with them they won’t tell anyone. That’s being trustworthy.


Museum of Diamonds is a captivating collection of poems and stories from students in the After-School Tutoring Program at 826LA in Echo Park. Throughout the Fall, students discussed, brainstormed, and wrote about their Adventure-ships–adventures with their friends. In the first part of the book you will find some heart felt poetry inspired by loved ones that explore the meaning of friendship. The second part of this book chronicles the action-packed adventures of our superhero students and their sidekick besties. Finally, you’re in for a cryptic treat. Our students penned suspenseful, bone-chilling, and hillarious thrillers inspired by the Legend of “La Llorona.” Hold onto your seats, you’re in for a wild ride.
