I am Surprised by your post because now I know things I didn’t know before. I am an emigrant and I go to school with people from other countries and cultures and in my lifestyle there is not a lot of racism. Maybe in the time of Tupac or in that place there was a lot of racism. I didn’t know this before because my first language is…[Read more]
This is a very sad experience because I had to leave everything behind, for example, my family. I need most of all my mother and my brothers. I left everything for better opportunities to study. I remember
I am excited by your post, “My immigrant Story,” because you went through a lot just to have a better life. I think you are very very strong for going through all that. Not having food or living on the streets makes you stronger because look now you have more things and help other people. I love how you say you help people on the streets because you already went through that and you don’t want them to be there in the streets too.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I saw some poor people in these communities and I helped the poor people by giving them some money. I don’t want anyone to live like I lived.” I think this is great because you help people who need it. It’s good that you’re so generous and kind because that makes you stronger as a person.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like this type of history. They make me very touching. They make you reason a lot.
Dear Joshua, Your post was touching. I feel your pain of struggling. I never felt the pain of hurt that much but I heard you. I also have starved before. I know that pain. This is a heart touching story and i know this will always be a reminder to keep your head up.
I am curious about your post, “short story,” because I want to know why you chose the Brooklyn Bridge in your photograph. How do you know this place? Do you go a lot to this place? I like this place because it makes me feel comfortable. This place is the best place for thinking. The girl in your dialogue says that she feels goo…[Read more]
I am interested in your post, “first time in New York” because not all people help people. It’s very difficult for them to speak their own language, because some people are racist against hispanic people. One person in your story decided to help this person as he behaved when he was going to eat. When I was in New York for t…[Read more]
I am the ferry. I go to Manhattan because it is my job everyday, because I have to take people to work on time. I am beautiful because people feel comfortable and satisfied because they arrive faster than the
I really like how u express your point of view in this writing.
I like u put urself in the place of the ferry as if the ferry was writing.
I like that u took the picture in the night that makes the photo deeper.
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.
