Wow!!! I really enjoyed reading your writing. I loved the Spanish dialogue you put in. It made it more interesting. I’m glad you shared this moment/ event with me and everyone else. Goood job! …
I’m really sorry to hear your loss. I want to thank you so much for sharing this beautiful story with me and everyone else. I really like that you but a lot of speech bubbles and captions where I can read what is going on. Love it 😊😊
This is a story of my family dynamic and love. A story where my father had a serious back pain where doctors here couldn’t do anything about. My father could not work at all, so it was very rough for us to live
Thank you for showing this beautiful story and I say beautiful because you can see how much you and your family loves your dad and support him. I can tell that at the beginning of the comic, it was a bit rocky and hard for you and your family but you guys managed to make it work and that is true love right there. About your drawings, they are beautiful. Your drawings were very clearly and that was awesome.
All the other memoirs I’ve read are poems. Your piece was different, you wrote it in paragraph forms. I learned a lot about your family and everyone role in the family. I enjoyed your writing. You are a really good writer, keep it up!
Your short piece is wonderful. I love the questions in your piece. Your pieces have a theme that is with question rather than answer questions you ask the questions which is cool but you have to put something of an answer. Why do they hate you and your family? In a few sentences why they do which to me could prove the audience with some info on why they hate you. Your title “Family Jelousy” do you mean ” Family Jealousy.” Overall it is a very interesting piece that you created. But in the future try to answer the question you make. Thank you for writing and I’ll be waiting for future pieces.
The first thing that comes to my mind is Wow! I really liked how you started off your introduction. I could visualize what you go through. the ending was also very good. I can’t wait to read more posts by you
I am showing love while reading this poem because you told us a story of why you do this. I mean you tell us the reason why you are very supportive. I really liked how you explained yourself. I hope to read more, this is really great!!
I like your poem. I can relate to you there has been many people trying to figure me out but they can’t. I have multiple trust issues. Don’t worry you’ll find someone who can figure you and you may be able to trust again. Even though I meant you for around 4 years you are totally mysterious I haven’t been able to might…..
loved you poem it was very strong and empional. Also I Know for a fact that there is someone in this world that will understand you.I like how you used this poem to get into your feelings. keep writing enjoyed this so much.
I am interested by your post, “Why I am Mysterious as Hell”, because you wrote it like it was a poem and you talk about personal feelings. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was: “Many people think they have figured me out. I shake my head.” I think this is an interesting sentence because you talk about different views of how people think about you. Another sentence that was interesting to me was: “I don’t like the word trust. I don’t like when I hear ‘it’s okay you can trust me’ I don’t like trusting people. I have trust issues. I hate trust.” This quote was interesting because sometimes its hard for people to trust others because of some situations they’ve been through in their life. Thanks for writing.
I love how you wrote this in a form of a poem & how you choose a word that is unique, something that you do not hear about very often. While reading this I felt like I was talking to you directly because we have talked about this before. We have talked about how you do not trust a lot of people and hoe you are scare about this sometimes. I appreciate that you decided to write about something unique.
Hi I really liked how you said you don’t really like talking about yourself to people, but then you started talking about yourself in this piece. This piece made me understand where your name comes from. I know a little bit about you now. Overall it was a really nice piece.
I love the way that you wrote your memoir kind of like a poem or even a song with the chorus being “a lost name…”
My favorite part of your memoir was when you said you would never change your name because you give meaning to your name without anybody writing your story for you. It’s YOU giving your name a story and bringing happiness and joy to it. I really enjoyed reading your memoir and hope to read more soon. :))
I really like how you put your own meaning to your name even if it was given without a meaning. I like how you are not ashamed of your name and you actually really like it which is a very positive thing. Your name memoir gave me a very positive vibe which I loved.
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.
