Hey Karyme, I really enjoyed reading your post. I liked how you are talking about an issue that is going on in our community. What stood out to me is how you expanded your research and interviewed people in our community because they are also being affected by this issue. Great job!
I agree with you that why do we always question ourselves but our whys” never get answered into we go thorough a lesson or learn something. However, I agree with you that life is precious, that were always complaining about our failures in life, and that we need to embrace ourselves we only live once and we should make the best out…[Read more]

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.
