Alzahra, I am intrigued with your post. I was also inspired. I like how you stated things to do or as reminders. Those are all good things to hear in the morning or even throughout the day. At the very end I really like how you said, “….you mean to say that after all you’re just going to let people be the reason to change you”
Alzahra, I very much enjoyed your post and what you chose to talk about. I also agree with Makenna hearing positive things in the morning or throughout the day really helps boost the confidence and helps you stay positive.
Alzahra, Your post interests me. You talk about things that are true to your life and you draw from personal experience. I really liked that you said “this is how you stand when you fall” as I feel that it is something we can’t be taught and you know and acknowledge this. Your post was very intriguing.
this is such a powerful story. I heavily agree with the message you’re trying to send with your writing. The way you kept repeating the word “yourself,” really made me connect with you, and the way you feel as a woman, and sometimes we only ever have to fend for ourselves. I especially felt a deep connection with you, when you kept talking about all the things you have to do throughout the day, just to be shot down, and I feel like a lot of women have to go through that. Very inspiring.
I am very satisfied with how you expressed yourself in this text It’s so inspiring because of the fact that you are such a motivational speaker i can just tell everything you talked about in this context could just give everyone you show some type of advice or support in life since coming from a wise and knowledgeable speaker. One thing you said that stands out for me is ” this is how you cry in a corner that no one can see you–so you can stand again and become stronger; this is how you have to get use to a hard life; this is how you will be able to defend innocent people;…” I find this very interesting because I can really relate to this sentence I’ve lived through and dealt with experiences and friendships that make this sentence very understandable. Thank you for sharing your post I look foward to seeing you post in the near future.
Dear Alzahra, This story of yours was truly inspiring. I liked how I can make connections about how if your hear positive things throughout the day can boost a positive attitude. Keep up the good work!!!
I agree with most if not all of your points, the United States of America is better off in comparison to other countries in numerous respects. Although America like all countries has faults and it is in my opinion that those lay in the sensitivity of our growing nations populous. Opinions are personal beliefs yet they still affect people more than they should. What stood out to me most in your post was “I’m only an immigrant girl that came to the US with my dad and family . We came to the US for a better opportunities for my dad and for us to get a better education.”. America has so much to offer people as a nation and you seem to like our country more than people that were born here and I find that extremely interesting.
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.
