The interview took place in Pulse High School where I am currently attending and will be graduating on April. A peer of mine who is called Jean Morales was the one who recorded the interview for the project we
The interview took place in Pulse High School. The audience was the students of Pulse High School and I went there because the students respect the teacher, Mr. Adamo and were not disruptive during the
I am happy to see the quotes you presented in your post. I agree with the quotes “Stress is life”, and “Anxiety is the active feelings of losing control.” I know many people who suffer from anxiety and know that anxiety can be treated by medicine but at the same time, I agree that anxiety can be treated by our way of changing the way we live, or organizing our lives in a way that strives to progress and not regress. One of my favorite quotes from Einstein is “The definition of insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting the same result.” This website may seem interesting to you: https://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/anxiety-disorders/index.shtml Thank you for the post.
John, what a great post. I think that anxiety, depression, and stress are very important subjects that should be discussed,seeing that they take a great toll on people’s lives. I agree with Mr. Adamo, stress is in fact life, and it is important to find ways to learn how to cope with stress. The article “Dealing With Stress-10 tips https://www.skillsyouneed.com/ps/stress-tips.html is very informative, and will provide you with some great tips on how to manage things, so that stress does not take over your life. Mr. Adamo was right when he said that it is important to find outlets that help you deal with stress. What are some things you do to relieve stress? Thank you so much for sharing!
This post required a lot of effort from you and I’m glad I found it. I wish this interview can be transmitted to all high school students. Mr. Adamo was very distanced and did not get emotionally involved when answering the questions. This is good and further emphasizes the point that every student goes through high school issues. It’s not the end of the world. https://adaa.org/about-adaa/press-room/facts-statistics Anxiety is the most common mental illness in the U.S. just breathe and you’ll be fine. You don’t have to resort to anything else to fight it. Thank you for the post.
I am impressed by your post, “Causes of Depression” because it is very true. Teen nowadays like to keep things inside because we feel like we can not trust anyone or no one will understand.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “Stress is another thing people struggle to overcome because they have a lot they dealing with in life “ I think this is also true because stress does come from having a lot of things to handle by yourself especially when it is hard to do it on your own. It does become a struggle because we want everyone to see that we can do it even when we can not. Sometimes you do need someone to tell you what to do.
Another sentence that I read was, “These problems are usually overcome by having support by a family member or a therapist”. This stood out for me because having someone very close to that you can tell everything too can be very helpful with letting go of stress.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you are very smart for knowing and explaining what us teens and different people may be going through.

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.
