“I hate you.” That is the last thing I remember saying. During dinner, my mother and I had gotten into an argument. The reason for the argument was silly, but aren’t most arguments over silly reasons anyways? Wel
The story was written really well, I wanted to keep reading to reach the conclusion. It really made me think about how saying “I hate you,” can have such a large impact. Mothers give a lot and I know what it feels like to have that hatred for stupid reasons. The dream sequence was good, I believed it was the real event until you woke up and saw the truth. Thank you for such a powerful message.
My name is Husnain and I am not good at anything. In fact, I am pretty bad at everything except one thing. I am good at working hard. Working hard has been drilled into me ever since I was a little kid because of
Thank you for sharing your story of how you immigrated to the U.S. from Canada. My parents also immigrated from Canada, and I am a dual citizen of both countries as well. There is definitely few differences between the two countries as both have similar cultures, but I have found that even though discrimination exists everywhere, it is definitely more prevalent and harsh in the U.S. I believe that the U.S. has stronger disparities between races than Canada, and Canada seems to be more accepting of immigrants. I do believe that improvements need to be made regarding racial bias in the U.S., and I believe this can be attained through a nationwide effort to be more inclusive of others.
I really liked your entire post, even though I dont have a lot in common with you I think that your story is very inspirational. I think in our society it is key to be hardworking even if you are not naturally good at a lot of things. I think that hard work can get you almost anywhere in the world even if you are not that talented at it.

I am impressed by essay “Intro to Me” because of the authenticity of your work. I enjoy reading biographies and yours was interesting to read because it is from the the perspective of another high schooler’s. One sentence that stood out to me was “My favorite subjects are math and science because I find them the most interesting and I…[Read more]
I am impressed by your post and video, “Me, Myself and I, three paragraphs about yours truly” because of the fact that you mentioned specifics. I do wrestling as well and the fact that you wrestle caught my eye. One sentence that stood out to me was “I’m an adrenaline junkie”. I think this is cool because I can relate somewhat.
A Jacob said, I could really hear your voice too. I felt like I was talking to you in person. In addition, I also agree that a father figure is important in everyone’s lives because it creates a balance with the mother figure. Overall, this work is great and keep working hard in school.
My name is Husnain Khan and I live in Okemos, Michigan. Up until the age of four, I lived in Toronto, Canada and was born there as well. Ever since my family and I came to the United States, I have lived in
It’s sad to see that even someone as skilled at wrestling as you are, probably couldn’t make a future out of wrestling if you wanted to. Still good to know you have some direction in your life, I worry about some of the guys on that team. I swear if they let JV in on the whole GPA thing I’d bring up the curve by a solid .1 at least :). You’ve mentioned living in Toronto before (elementary school, I think you did a presentation) and here you are saying it’s like night and day, in what way may I ask? Good bio, it’s good to hear how much all of us Okemos kids appreciate Okemos, it’s a great community.
You cannot describe what an American means in one word. Being an American is a combination of values and ideals. These values and ideals are different for each and every person. To me, being an American means to
Being an American can mean many things. Not everyone feels the same about American values, but we can all agree on a few things. Some may hate the United States and some may love the land of the free. At the end
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.
