I am inspired by your post, it makes me feel that there are people who understand the oppression in the United States. One sentence that stood out to me was “First, if you feel as if the United States are “united” or “free” as much as the government wants us to think, you have the right to protest. There are many amendments that we…[Read more]
All the objects in my box represent me because they are a part of me. The Beast Oakland sticker is a part of me because my cousin owns the brand and I think that is something that is very breathtaking because
I really like your box and the phrase you use to describe how your cousins brand was successful, “The Beast Oakland sticker is a part of me because my cousin owns the brand and I think that is something that is very breathtaking because not a lot of Mexicans make a brand that goes good, this shows a counter narrative”. This quote is very strong and indicates that you guys were successful although society never believed in you. Here a few questions to pick your brain. How does skateboarding shape your personality? How do you overcome obstacles faced in your way? Will you be willing to create a brand?
I am not really a skater, but a cruiser. The difference is that a cruiser rides a skateboard for fun and a skater does tricks and all. Do you skate? To answer your second question I always find a way through the challenge and get over it. In my mind set there is always a way out. For your last question I don’ t think I will be able to make my own brand. I say that because I am actually a good entrepreneur. I can sell just about anything to almost anybody. Later on I will probably join my cousin into the business and help him sale at other places.
Hi my name is Adham Aldahmi and I’m from Fremont High School and we are doing the same project as you. One question I have for your shadowbox is what’s the drawing in the box. One question I have for your writing is what made you love basketball. The thing I love about your shadowbox is the drawing and the game.
Hey Adham the drawing in the box is the eagle from the Mexican flag, my uncle drew it for me. What made me love basketball was the energy and adrenaline that the game gave me. Also I was just really good at the game.
Thank you for sharing your work. My name is Dae’Len and I am a student at Fremont High School.
Something I liked about your work was the 2k18 because i enjoy playing basketball and i enjoy playing 2k18.
Something I have a question about is what does the bird represents on your box? Please feel free to comment on my work in the future. The address of my student blog is http://daelengfhs2021.edublogs.org/2018/02/05/assignment-7/ .
Hey Dae’Len thanks for commenting. I love 2k its like the best thing out other than Fortnite. Have you played in a AAU team yet. The bird represents the eagle from the Mexican flag. Respond as fast as possible so we can keep in touch.
Dear Alberto I like your box and how the objects in there represent you. your title was different and that’s how it grabbed my attention. I liked when you said ” The jewelry/bracelet represents me because my family can’t afford everything other families can afford and to me everything that my family gets for me I always try to take good care of it and try to make it last.” I think more people should think like that.
I am fascinated by your topic “American Leaders, Your Attention Please” because you are right about how racial slurs can push people to the edge to commit suicide. I myself have not experienced being called a racial slur and I am lucky but like you said for the ones that have had that experience it is not OK. Just because someone is…[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.
