Hello Kimberly, I found your comment to be interesting. I can somewhat relate to this, being an immigrant in the United States and learning to adapt to a new culture. I like how you stated the importance of friendship, “my friendship is really important to me because my friends have been there for me and I don’t know what I would do with[out] them.” Friends are important and everyone needs friends to live a happy life.

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.
