  • DearJoshua,
    I am intrigued by your introduction because you write from the perspective of a ferry.
    One thing I learned from your writing that stood out for me is: “I have to take people to work on time.” I think this is important because that’s their job. 
    Your writing connects to my own experience. For me, because i have to go to school in tim…Read More

  • Dear lshak,
      
    I am interested in your poem because I like how you moved to another country.  This is interesting to me because i like how you run away from danger. 
    One thing I learned from your writing that stood out for me is: “Get our stuff to the car, Running away from the city.” I think this is sad because you had to leave your house bec…Read More

    • Dear Isiah,
      I am intrigued by your poem because it does seem like a lot of work to take care of a sibling. But later on it gets easy because you will have him and he will have you.
      One thing I learned from your writing that stood out for me is: “Isiah, you’re going to be a big brother.” I think this is interesting, because becoming a big brother or sister takes a lot of responsibility, like sometimes you will have to feed them, change them, give them baths. But I know how it feels to be a big brother, I had to take care of two sisters and it was kind of difficult.
      Your writing connects to my own experience. For me,I was also nervous to be a big brother. It seems easy but it’s not. I was afraid that I wasn’t going to be great at being a brother.
      Thanks for your work on Youth Voices. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your writing is beautiful, the way you add details on the journey you took to meet your brother and how you felt nervous about being a big brother. Also how you spend time with your brother.

    • Dear Isiah,
      I am excited with  your poem because you explain something important in your life but with specific details.
      One thing I learned from your writing that stood out for me is: “Isiah, you’re going to be a big brother.” I think this is interesting. You’re gonna be a big brother and your mom  told you, that means a lot because it is so cute that your mom said that to you. 
      Your writing connects to my own experience because I have a little brother too and when he’s born I was shocked because I thought that I was not gonna be a good sister for him or something like that. I’m so happy to have my little brother in my life and every time I’m gonna learn how to be a good big sister.
      Thanks for your work on Youth Voices. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like so much how you explain this important moment in your life.

    • Dear Isiah,
      I am excited about this journey poem, interested in knowing if you are happy with your new brother, your parents brought a new kid to this world, i want to know if you are truly happy with your new brother, satisfied with your poem because you put a lot of details and I can actually see myself. I can really see myself and picture everything around you, and how you are feeling.  
      One thing I learned from your writing that stood out for me is: “.Isiah, you’re going to be a big brother” I think this is interesting because they let you know it won’t just be you anymore, someone is coming in and now it will be both of yall. compelling because knowing what train you are taking and what train you took that day.  
       
      Your writing does not connect to my own life because I don’t have a newborn brother, but if I did have a new brother I would be excited and be a great brother I guess.  
      Thanks for your work on Youth Voices. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have a great way to show me how you felt and how everything was around you, and the explanation was good too.

    • Dear Isiah,

      I am interested in your poem because it talks about what happened that day and also how you felt about your baby brother.

      One thing I learned from your writing that stood out for me is: “when he cries, he makes me nervous, when he smiles he makes me laugh.” I think this is interesting because you are being a big brother!

      Your writing connects to my own experience. For me because you explained the whole journey to get to the hospital to see your baby brother.

      Thanks for your work on Youth Voices. I look forward to seeing what you write next because it’s interesting what you wrote about and I can’t wait to read more.
