Storytelling can be a personal experience for the writer as well as for the reader. I enjoy reading B Street because in a way the stories take me back into my own memories. Like the story, La Cultura Cura Pero Tambien Daña: Why I Did Not Learn How To Cook. This story made me laugh at first because I can totally relate to not learning how to cook growing up. Then reading through the story made me think of how symbolic teaching a young Latina to cook can be.
Angelica also has a good eye for photos. Some of the photos from Kennedy Park in her story, Gophers and Cracked Benches, Oh My!, caught my eye. Her images on social media capture a story in themselves.
