As always, a good and thoughtful response from you that reflects your innate wisdom. I would love to hear more of "your thoughts" about the "collaborative" part of the day that you touch on inn your conclusion.

A good and thoughtful response to t=your experience. You do an excellent job of digging into Adam's intents and insights, I would love to hear more of your own because I know they are yet inside of you.

I love this, but I think you save the best for last. Your conclusion would make a great end to your opening paragraph--then let this thoughts guide the structure of your essay. It is an interesting and thoughtful read.

A really good and thoughtful reposes to your experience with Adam and your experience coming to this country--something I am eager to read more about.
