I was really moved by your article “Poverty in NYC”, because it showed me how easy it is to forget about these people and their struggles even though we see them everyday. Everyday, people walk past homeless people in New York City and nobody seems to care about them. Your article really helped me realize what big of a problem this is and how we have to do something about it.
One thing that really stood out to me was how you made a personal reference when you spoke about how at the age of 4 you moved to New York from Morocco and provided your own insight on New York and the things that you see everyday walking down the streets of the city.
I also like how you included the video. I feel like it provided me with a lot more information to your case and that really helped me understand the topic more thoroughly.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I got really interested in this topic.
I completely agree. Income inequality is one of the most important issues we face. I made a video on the different uses of donation and think that the problem is the lack knowledge on these topics. My video focusses on educated society and I really believe you should check it out at…[Read more]

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
