This Shadow Box represents my identity and where I come from and what I am proud to be known as. When you look at my box you may see a wooden piece that looks like a ladder but it isn’t I promise. It’s
I really liked your post of how you shared your experience when you were a little girl. But at the same time describing the objects you had in your shadow box because when I saw the image I thought of a different significance. This connects to me somehow because i wasn’t born in America i’m a Guatemalan girl and I feel proud of that because it makes me feel more powerful in this society were females get treated different.

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.
