I really enjoyed reading your story, and I also agree that immigration is extremely important. I am really glad that you see America as a place of opportunity and safety because the country was built on ideals of freedom and equality. I feel like in recent times, partly due to the current government, the country is not being as friendly to immigrants, however, your story is really good to hear and I hope that your story will be able to inspire people in America to be more open to accepting everyone, regardless of what country they come from. Here’s a link to a cite where you can share your story on a bigger scale, and many people with similar stories will read and respond: http://immigrantcolorado.blogspot.com/

Dear Dust, I am interested in your post “A Cricket Player in the Bronx” because it shows the posh factor (something that let immigrant to the United State) One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is that you use a lot of repetition like “from Bangladesh” and “to USA” This reminds me of an experience I had once like a poem by using repetition. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I want to see how your writing progresses.

Hi dust, I really liked your poem. I liked your poem because you described the people and the culture from which you came from in just a 4 stanza poem. I really liked the line “I am from sacrifice Life for country” because it shows how passionate you are about the country that you were born in.
Dust, I enjoyed your poem mostly because it was short and concise, yet interesting and informational. Your passion and love for your country shows through in each line and I loved the little facts like “morning tea” that accompany it. The passion most strongly shines through with the strong openings of “I am”. This phrase shows that you identify with Bangladesh; that you are one with Bangladesh. I look forward to reading more poems of yours, keep it up!
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.
