• Hi Claire,

    I am Kaitlyn from Judge Memorial Catholic High School in Utah. Your post is really interesting to me and had many different insights I have not thought about or heard before reading it. America is a very unique place in that most people come from many different places, cultures, and backgrounds. I agree with you when you say that…[Read more]

  • Amaia,

    I am very interested to see where the rest of your research takes you because this is intriguing. I think this is such an important topic that should be discussed more openly in schools, especially high school. I feel like sex education is not talked about nearly enough in order to make a difference. I agree with you when you say that…[Read more]

    • I thought your topic was captivating because nutrition is often neglected in schools, though it should always be taught to create a healthy population. From my experiences, I noticed that we learn more about nutrition at a young age, but as we grow older education about nutrition slowly fades away. It’s extremely important to educate people about nutrition because it is the foundation of being healthy and creating wellbeing. Promoting good health leads to many benefits such as lowering the cost of health care because fewer people are getting sick.

  • A problem in my community is the lack of education on nutrition and what really matters when it comes to being healthy. Lots of people see how important the lack of education on nutrition is but they do not know

  • Matthew,

    This is very well written. Through your writing, I can tell how strongly you feel about this topic, and that makes it incredibly captivating and interesting to read. When a writer is clear how strongly they feel about what they are writing about, it makes it much more convincing. When you said “Without their vote and their power to put…[Read more]

    • Hey Kaitlyn!

      This topic has really made me think about the food industry and obesity. I first thought about how geology makes a big impact on good health including exercise. Being in Utah we have access to much many outdoor activities but places like Arizona and Florida is the summer is hot where people want to spend more time indoors where it is cooler. Then I remembered something I read a couple years ago about meal planning comparing the prices of fast food to food at home. Many people believe it is cheaper and easier just to get fast food than make your food food. The people who believe this are usually lower income families who do not have a lot of money so fast food restaurants will set up business in these kind of neighborhoods. This website talks more about healthy eating spending and fast food spending. https://www.valdosta.edu/online-fitness/is-fast-food-cheaper-than-healthy-food.php. I found it fascinating.

    This is so scary! I am shocked that there are so many people being kidnapped. Since I am from Utah, I am not aware of the amount of people being kidnapped in Oakland, and how this number is going up for both boys and girls. Since most people assume that girls are always the ones being kidnapped, it is very important for people to know…[Read more]

  • Amaia,

    This is a very important discussion and I am glad that you took the time to research and post this so more people, including myself, can learn more about it. Your research and sources gave you really good information, and it shows with how well this is written and supported. I learned more about sex trafficking. Do you know if there are…[Read more]

  • There is a lack of sex education given to young students, so most have no proper knowledge about what to do and how to do it safely. Since there is no proper teaching, young students are reaching out to other

  • Kaitlyn commented on the post, Woman Rights 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    The points you brought up in this post are valid and I think this is one of the most discussed topics in today’s world. Although the world has come a very long way in terms of women’s rights and equality between genders, there is still a lot to be done. For example, women are still not paid as much as men are and there are still certain…[Read more]

    Your post was very interesting and eye-opening to read. I have dealt with many instances where my trust has been broken and the quote that you said in the beginning (“Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair”) was something that I connected to. I think that there have been a lot of cases, big and small, that…[Read more]

  • Hello Cassie,

    I enjoyed reading your post. I believe that family and parental relationships are very important in the way that we (teenagers and children) are brought up. The sentence you wrote “The relationship between a child and their parent is one that affects both the physical, social, and emotional development of the child” is something I…[Read more]

  • Hello Alani,

    Your post was very interesting and insightful. The point you made about “America used to actually care about things for the right reasons, but their motives have changed” was really eye-opening for me to read because it made me think about the values and motives that have changed in America. I think the shift in the country’s values…[Read more]

  • Hello Maggie,

    I think your thoughts and the arguments you used to discuss this topic are very important. The question of whether or not school start times should be delayed is a very up-and-coming issue as more and more students begin to talk about the lack of sleep they are getting, and how miserable it is to have to wake up early in the…[Read more]

  • Hello Emmet. I am a senior at Judge Memorial High School. Your post is incredibly important to me for a lot of reasons. The discussion on mental health has increased in recent years, as many adolescents are starting to understand how crucial it is to speak up, however, there is still a lot more talking that needs to be done. For some reason,…[Read more]

  • Stella, your points are so strong. The part you talked about the Chinese proverb: “Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I’ll remember. Involve me and I’ll understand” really stuck with me. This is so important for colleges to consider, as many people haver different learning and remembering capabilities. The standardized tests seem to be more re…[Read more]

    • I found this to be a very interesting idea and a concept that definitely rings true in this day and age. So much of status is equated with wealth so it’s no surprise people want to accumulate more items that make them feel ‘important’ at least until they look at their bank statements haha! I’m curious if you yourself live a minimalistic life or if you’re attempting to? If so I think you might enjoy this article:
