Hello Meshach, I loved your post and at many times I kept thinking about the idea that is very hurting to me that a Caucasian vs African America in a court most times depending on where you are in the US, the Caucasian individual will have a less server pushiment than the African American individual, and the Caucasian is compensate by the…[Read more]
Hi Sophie I loved your post and how you said “face-to-face interactions are less desirable than social media or texting”, I would agree. Today many young people do not know how to make eye contact and from my mom (who’s my source in this post) says “I’ve noticed that with many young applicants who want an internship with me, alot of them struggle…[Read more]
Today, if you think about it what most people have in common is having a mobile device. Many people today surf and stream the mobile internet with ease and they find themselves (especially younger generations
I really loved your poem about your home. The idea of home is something that I will miss so much when I leave but coming back will always be special because that is where most people have grown up in their whole life. A home is more than just four walls and a roof it’s a place where we know where everything is if our were blindfolded it’s…[Read more]
I feel farming was common lifestyle and work choice of many people back then who wanted to make a living, but that sort of lifestyle has lost its lust today. I think as a society as we grew around the idea of technology and innovation, the idea that we can have foods that aren’t seasonal around us–we can now have these foods all season…[Read more]
One fascinating idea that I have always loved looking at is how people dream. Dreams are something we all have in common; babies, animals, men and woman-we all dream. In fact, researchers have found that people
I have heard of lucid dreaming but I’ve never realized that it could possibly help and prepare us for the next day. That’s such an interesting concept that maybe we can meditate, study for a test, or plan an event all while we are asleep. Like your post, this article talks about the benefits of lucid dreaming and you might find it interesting. I look forward to hearing more.
This is a very interesting subject. I liked how you said “if we were able to have more lucid dreams we would be able to study for a test, prepare ourselves for an event, or a big business meeting.” It makes your argument more personal. Also, I found a source that you could look into about how common lucid dreaming is and what studies have been conducted (https://www.livescience.com/47365-lucid-dreamers-different-insight.html). I look forward to reading more of your writing because it is interesting to see this new perspective.
I have been waiting to see a post involving dreaming and how we can control them like this Anthony. Dreaming has always fascinated me and the concept that we still don’t know why we dream is mind-boggling. I have always seen in cartoons and some books that the character controls the dream and makes it their own. This has always been the coolest thing to me, and I’ve always wanted to be able to do it. I have also seen some articles on how to control our dreams which I have tried with no luck. Someday maybe we will all be able to control our dreams and as you said, this will help us in our daily activities. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/12/12/how-to-control-your-dreams_n_6296526.html
Hi Whitlee, I would agree with Lindsay and Issac on how they view the advantage of going to private school which has given me the idea that private schools offer a push and pull effect “nudge” – Issac, with private schools especially you should see students achieving higher because you yourself, parents, teachers and college advisors are putting…[Read more]
I also agree with Emma you are a phenomenal writer! I liked how you said, “Relativity has it, however, that any person born at this moment is more likely to have an opportunity to have a good life than ever before.” I can agree that we back in time when people were segregated by color, race, and gender it was very bad a horrific, today…[Read more]
Oliver I really liked your post and the deep thought provoking question “do we consider it a pet or a member of the family?” I can say that I very much value my dog and look at her as a member of my family. I found the quote “Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of…[Read more]
Alejandro, I really liked your shadow box and how well you incorporated soccer and objects that are a representation of your heritage. I further ask you, do you play on a competitive team? Also, do you think you play soccer on a higher team in high school? Also, what about do you like especially? Playing soccer also have many good benefits such as…[Read more]
I really enjoyed your post Yojana, I really liked when you said, “many people assume that later in the future I will be successful because of how they see me working hard’, but Forbes.com says “If you were seeking a new role and were selling yourself, hard work is not a unique qualifier. So what makes you think it is a differentiator when seeking…[Read more]
Anthony, this article grabbed my attention from the title because I had no idea coffee was linked to acne. I have always only heard the positive effects of coffee. I liked how you incorporated into the article quotes of people who helped answer your question. You also gave both sides to the argument by providing positive and negative effects of coffee which is more informative than a completely biased article. Is it coffee specifically or caffeine in general that supposedly causes break-outs? I will be interested to read you other pieces!
Here’s a link I think would be interesting to you, https://www.healthline.com/health/caffeine-effects-on-body.
I am a person who always drinks coffee and I thought that this article was interesting because I have heard that coffee can be bad for your skin and was interested to see what you had to say. I agree that it is very likely that the large amounts of cream and sugar we put in our coffee are more likely to make skin worse than the coffee itself. I also know that caffeine can dehydrate you and if you dont counteract that by drinking water it could dry your skin out and make acne and such worse. I think that every person is different and not drinking coffee may give people good or bad effects. Id be interested to know how else coffee affects our bodies and why it has the benefits that you listed. I thought this article was interesting because this person abstained from coffee and saw the pros and cons before deciding whether coffee was something they wanted to keep in their daily routine.
Thomas, your post I like but someone who is looking at this for the first time I myself am sort of confused do you mean that, because of the construction of the bullet train it will either raise or lower the prices on food to other people. If you are making this claim I would suggest this article…[Read more]
Hi Amran, I really found your post very similar to how economically small businesses work here in Utah, Salt Lake City. I can add by saying many small businesses rely heavily off of the local customers and consumer to help finance their businesses and keep them running. I will also say it’s very sad when these small businesses like you said (many…[Read more]
Javier, I really enjoyed reading your post. You made it clear that poverty is a problem in the world, and that poor people feel this problem separates them from other people. I liked that you had useful examples when you said “most poor people are discriminated in the workforce and in society for their economic status, plus the act of giving to…[Read more]
Javier V, I found your “Senior Project” research to be very compelling in how fast-food companies are selling cheap alternative food options to the poor at a low cost. I would also add that from your forbes source that “It allows quacks and drug companies to sell fake cures. And it blinds us to the real problems in food safety.” I would hold this…[Read more]
Erica, I really enjoyed your post more specifically the quote about how technology “increases the risk of isolation, alienation, and withdrawal from society, but available evidence shows that the Internet neither isolates people nor reduces their sociability; it actually increases sociability, civic engagement, and the intensity of family and f…[Read more]
Aleah, I would agree with you that today education to some people seems like great equalizer in today’s society, but a number of students are now suggesting the education system may not be doing its job in effectively after post graduation.

This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
