I am thrilled with your essay “My life made me good at standing up for what’s important”. I thought it was really emotional ,and amazing. I thought this because i know it must had been really hard speaking about your little brother, yet you did it anyways, this shows how brave you are!

I love how passionate you are about your beliefs! Although my religion isn’t the same as yours, I still respect you for being so open and proud of it.

And, it sucks but, you just need to put them behind you because they don’t know you as a person.

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.
