  • Maria,
    I like how you mentioned that a lack of motivation to read is a growing problem leading to a negative impact on reading comprehension and intelligence as a whole. I find myself fighting the battle to read more and constantly feel that my vocabulary is lacking. Reading this article has brought to life some of my struggles and I hope it…Read More

  • Haley,
    I really liked how you emphasized the importance of exercise on one’s mental health. When you mentioned the chemicals released in the body, such as endorphins and neurohorones, I gained a better understanding as to why we experience the benefits we do. I think it is important to bring awareness to the mental benefits to exercise along w…Read More

  • Lydia,
    I agree with everything you said and I admire your courage to write about a topic that may be difficult to talk about. I definitely feel that people need to become more confident in themselves and not let an uncontrollable illness or condition depict who they are as a person. It is important to note that an illness does not make a person…Read More

  • Mary,
    I like how you emphasized the point of social media’s effect on people in their means of communication. We often overlook the changes in our vocabulary in correspondence with current trends on the internet, most notably those on social media.

  • Paige, I liked how you mentioned that social media influencers are judged for who they may portray themselves online to be, rather than for who they truly. It is important to realize this happens everywhere; people are judged by their outside/ cover or who they let the world see them as, rather than for who they are on the inside.

    • Dear Keira,
      I am interested in your post because I think it addresses a very important issue. I think that everyone has experienced the impacts of gender stereotypes. One thing you said that stands out to me is: “Society is teaching people that if one wants to be different, they are going to have to accept experiencing judgement”. This is an important reminder for people to not accept the poor treatment of others because it should not be acceptable in any circumstances. I agree that empathy is necessary for improving society. Thanks for your post, and I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have made interesting points.

  • Keira commented on the post, Supporting Teen Moms

    Not all teen moms have the opportunity to finish school , so I see how this is important and a good thing for our society to regocnize. I agree that teen mothers need help recieving education opportunities and your ideas helped support your stance on the topic in a way that the reader can understand. I like how you used a specific example to show…Read More
