Hi there, Fatema. This letter is extremely powerful and cites many different young activists. I enjoyed the different areas of activism you drew from, ranging from female education rights to the rights of the natural land in America. These issues are core to our generation and they are fights we will continue to fight until we have won. In the future, perhaps you could write about your own experiences with activism, or issues that are close to your heart. Beyond that, maybe continuing to write letters on issues that matter to you, or more like this one that thank elected officials for what they are doing. With so much negativity in the world today, I think it is important we all remember simple things like saying thank you or letting others know they are doing a good job. Keep up the good work and positivity!
I am very inspired by what you say also I agree with you, about, “this generation cares about others, cares about everybody. The youngest are more sensitive because they feel empathy for others. ” because after 50 to 60 years we will not be here and today children will maintain the world so we should let them decide and share their opinion wha…[Read more]
I am very inspired by what you say also I’m agree with you, about, “Today’s Children Tomorrow’s Future” because after 50 to 60 years we will not be here and today children will maintain the world so we should let them decide and share their opinion what they want and how will be there future.
I am very delighted by, your essay response to Ocasio-Cortez, “Stand Up Generation”, because it inspires people to speak up for their rights. if we want to change something as a youth revolt we have the power to do it.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I totally agree with you when you say that people have…[Read more]
I’m going to compare and contrast three stories we chose to study in my English class. “Everyday Use,” by Alice Walker (1973), “The Lesson,” by Toni Cade Bambara (1972), and “How to Date a Browngirl, Blackgirl,
I am impressed with your essay, “Three Life Lesson” because you explained really well the similarities and differences between the three stories. Also, you give a brief definition of the literary elements used in the stories wich is helpful. A set of lines you wrote that stands out for me is: “This story is different from “The Lesson” where the children are in a gang group and they are lower income class families and they don’t have any education. That is why it was hard for them to deal with the real world and why Miss Moore is trying to show them a different class of society. So they can have some idea about it.” I think this is a key detail because people who don’t have the chance to get education may have a limited view of the real world, not knowing all the oportunities they could have through education. Another sentence that I read was: “This three stories similarities is that all the character from from three different stories they are learning from someone who is older than them.” This stood out for me because thinking about it, its true that all the mains characters are learning from someone experienced in the life. In “Everyday Use”, Dee was teaching Mama and maggie about what she learn in school, in “The Lesson”, Miss Moore was teaching to a group of kids about wealth inequality, and in “How to dat…”, the main character was learning from someone who was experienced in how to behave with a girl. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because it helps me to se more similarities about these short stories.
I am interested in your literary analysis, “Three Life Lessons,” because you give us a summary of three stories that have a connection with education. Each story has a different point of view on education. For example, it shows different ways of young people facing the issues about it.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “What I noticed in these three stories no matter who they are, the characters want to learn more about what they do not know about yet,” I think this is powerful because you find connection between the three stories about education, and new generations. Also is interesting because your idea changes my understanding about the stories.
Another sentence that I felt was “They are also similar because they have high expectations for life because they are trying to be better.” This stood out for me because this sentence describes each character of each story that relates how they help its community to do not make the same mistakes as the people did on the past.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you are a good writer and you identify details that can summarize your words.
I am delighted by your story ” The Hardest Letter to Write” because your it is very heroically.
one line that stands out for me is, ”However I would like to visit you one day and maybe have a cup of tea and talk about our lives. I almost forgot to tell you that I have always admired you.” It shows how Maggie loves Dee despite…[Read more]
I am very inspired by your short story, “Mom Obligation ,” because this story show that how strong a women can be. in this story mom had to do lot of hard work to raise her two daughter. she didn’t think about herself. she want to make her two daughter happy and she took all the hard time to herself.
I am amazed by your story “Dee story to become” the way you characterized Dee shows that she will do anything to get what she wants even if it meant taking advantage of other people wealth. You mentioned something really powerful in your story that it touched me and I think It something that need to be taking in consideration as a…[Read more]

I am inspired by your short story because it is very powerful and phenomenal piece of writing.
One paragraph that stands out for me, “Zahra life was at risk. Almost half of the body got burned. Her bodywould be filled with scars. This is why she always feel sad about it. Because when she goes out of the house, people look at her in a different way.” I think these two lines are critical to your story’s overall feelings, because it is very sad!
Your short story reminds me of my friend that I have not seen for decades, is this even true?
Thanks for your letter. I look forward to seeing what you make next.
You have a beautiful talent in writing, especially in the scope of drawing readers in. It is fascinating to watch someone be able to tell a story that did not happen in reality with such great details.
One line that stood out to me was ” They were hugging each other and sharing happiness. Mom was holding the baby with teary eyes, and thinking what a blissful gift she had received from God.” With just a few simple sentences, you have succeed to portray the emotions of a mom who had just given birth.
Your short story inspires me to write more and more importantly, express my gratitude for my mother because moms are the best.
Thank you for your story. I look forward to reading your next one.
I am stimulated by your short story ” Mama and Maggie’s struggles” because it is a great story which has a very specific details about the event that Maggie had faced which never makes her feel confident and make a good communication with outside of people. Her fantasy to be becomes a successful could makes change of her fear that she have inside of her.
One sentence that stands out for me, “ Suddenly, they heard a crackling sound and inside the house it was all black smoke. Mum was looking back to the house horrified. She can only see the fire is up to the sky and so dark” this scene is horrible but it is foreshadowing of your story. We can infer what would be the next chapter about.
Your story helps me to comprehend “ Everyday use” that I once read, where Maggie’s some of body part got burned because of the flame of fire and mama we’re happy to have two daughter.
Thanks for your story. I am looking forward to seeing what you make next.
I loved your story and I think it’s truly inspirational. You can really feel the emotion you put behind the story. As I read it it kind of felt like a story that could have happened in real life. So my question is, where did your inspiration come from?
it fell that you were the main character in the story and you really enjoy to tell your personal story.
its really inspirational becuase people can be able to learn and understand stories from different points of view
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.
