Standing in an operating room in the hospital that I will be running, doing the hardest surgery ever. Taking my time but at the same time trying to do it fast. The surgery was so hard and intense I feel like it
I enjoyed your post, “My Life in 20 years,” because the job you have makes a lot of money. Your future would be a success.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ The pressure of the patient’s family outside waiting for an update when the patient keeps flattening out, and we got to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).” I think this is scary because you have to make sure that patient comes back alive. If you fail the surgery you have to deal with emotions and seeing the family hurt because of their loss.
Another sentence that I enjoyed reading was: “ Every deep breath I took, I felt every single nerve in my body starting to shut down like if I was turning off a light bulb.” This stood out for me because as I was reading it, I was feeling the way how you felt.
Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I had to go with nana to the hospital. My auntie was getting surgery on her arm. I was scared because I wanted her to come back perfectly fine. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your post is interesting and good to read.
you sound like an extreme adrenalin junkie! I applaud your desire for hard, intense, and risky work. I find the reasons you want to be a surgeon interesting and to some degree understandable. I think being a doctor is very stressful and it is those that seek it out that perform the best. It sounds like you have a good understanding of your self and what you think you want to do. you have a lot of work ahead of you in the next twenty years but with any luck you’ll learn to love it and get exactly where you want to go. you should post some articles that research surgeries, highlight the best in the field, and discus controversial operations. Best of luck!
I feel excited and overwhelmed about posting my first audio recording on Youth Voices. This is my reading focusing on tone and inflection in a passage from Dr. Victor Rios’ autobiography called Street Life. My u
I like what you have, but your execution needs only slightly more work to be amazing. I would say in the beginning your speech needs to be more consistent and flowing, not too many pauses. Once you start talking about how much the mom means to you (in context of the text) then you can start taking those long pauses, it’s more powerful and appropriate then. I will say some words could be better enunciated, but overrall, it was pretty good. This video will teach you how to speak more clearly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsoYzpffO88
After reading the first three chapters of Victor Rios’ Street Life, I feel sorry for the events he is telling his audience. In looking at the imagery he uses to tell his story, I observed that he uses visual and a
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.
