Dear Leticia I am impressed by, your letter “AOC Makes Me Giddy!,” because you really show her your gratitude in this letter and how you used the video to show someone people in Africa whom don’t have the same opportunity to stand for themselves . One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I think this is feeling and expressive of gratitude because she gives us a big honor that represents our generation. That demonstrates that we are a generation that cares for other people’s life whatever their status. I do with the word of gratifyingly agree with you that.” I think this is emotional because when I was reading the text it was a lot of tone. Another sentence that I like was: “ This means that the young generation has determination to go further than other, older generations. This means that the young generation has determination to go further than other old generations..” This stood out for me because I like to watched online video, I found this wonderful activist who is Hadja Idrissa Bah founding president of the club of young girls leaders of Guinea, is a Guinean activist. She was President of the Guinean Children’s Parliament which fights against forced marriages, marital rapes and genital mutilation. Have you seen this video youtube? I thought you might be interested in this because you video is a little be similar with this story .Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you are very thoughtful and an inspired person.
I am really fascinated by your detailed and cogent letter to AOC. You really demonstrated how much impact AOC has had on young people. I agree with you on the fact that AOC unconsciously encourages young people to excel by motivating them.
One thing you said that stands out for me is: ‘The way you Delibes the young generation is very amazing, and I feel proud as a young girl.’ because I believe that our generation experience unprecedented events. Yet, they do not complain but they always find ways to overcome them. Also, it proves that AOC speeches empower young youth.
Thank you for your writing and I look forward to seeing what you write next.
Dear Leticia, I am choosing an adjective grateful to show you my emotion that I feel when I read your letter, “AOC Makes Me Giddy!”. Your letter was too emotional for me because it was much realistic and had a great thought about all the things we are facing in our real life. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ Education is the basis of human rights..” I think this is powerful because without education we could not do anything so it is better to take this seriously because I like this sentence and I agree with that since education is a key of the whole world. Another sentence that I like was: “ I think that they are more sensitive, in a positive way” This stood out for me because they know even if it is hard one day they can make others like them before them . Since the fight does not start with us, some already started before us so we should respect their path roads in peace for they can have everything done. I like to do some reading online and the thing that interested me was a book called Patience. Have you seen this book? if not go see In a youtube I thought you might be interested in this because of the advice that you want to teach us from this video. Thank you for your bravery. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really enjoy reading your written style and it helps me to open my mind about our society even though sometimes it is really hard for us to accept everything. But I wonder if next time you can give us a deep conclusion? For more explanation, thank you.
Dear Leticia I agree with your letter, “AOC Makes Me Giddy!” because < today generation is fighting to make their life the best. There are a lot of people today and there are not a lot of a good job of them. Therefore they have each have to fight to become the best. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I think the young generation is more sensitive in a positive way. They actually care about other people’s experiences in life” I think this is correct because the way this generation fight to get what they are different from the way that past generation used to get what they want. In the past, people were fighting for all group, but now people are fighting for themselves and the one that comes after them. Another thing that I stood out of it was: “the video.” This stood out for me because the future depends on the children. These children will not able to make the future the best if they don’t have educations. Have you seen this video: the Importance Of Education – What's The Real Purpose Of Education? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDAdi6ZLktc. I thought you might be interested in this. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

Dear Leticia, I am Choose an adjective glorious to show you my emotion that I feel when I read your story, “Stories about Equality,”. Your summary story was too emotional for me because it was much realist since I really appreciate the way that you write your stories by showing us what it makes our society to have inequality or division. However at end you bring us together by saying life is simple so we need to be together for a good evolution. One line that stands out for me is, “The difference that those three stories illustrate is based on their characters because showing how their decision to make them suffer, however, in the end, they can not reach her goal. ” I think this evidence is interesting because it conveys how much some people are just there to make you feel like you can not make instead that to help you to arrive at your ambition they are just there to judge you.. But you can prove them they are wrong because your life is your life nobody can not change your destination. Another sentence that stands out for me and it is fascinating is, “we should treat everyone with the equal.” This stood out for me because it is true and i’m argue with you since we have the same blood flowing in our veins why we judge ourselves instead the only real person who will judge us is God. so our right is to treat each person at the same level no matter what. Your story helps me to understand well the three stories and one of the stories that I once read in Africa called “Be Yourself ” that also talk about equality since they book are saying we all are the same no matter our colors . Since when something cuts us it is blood that came out so be white or black etc are the same organism living. Thanks for your summary of three stories. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Since I really enjoy reading your written style and tone that is clear for me then it helps me to open my mind about our society even though sometimes it is really hard for us to accept everything thanks to our bias . But I wonder if next time you can give us a deep conclusion? For more explanation, thank you.
I am facinating with your essay, “Stories about Equality,” because the way that you explained the three short stories and connected to the society issues was great. Also what you wrote in the end about people do not have the right to dominate another one its important because many people take adventage of others. One set of lines that you wrote that stands out for me is: “The three authors tried to teach us one lesson that happens in society currently. Also, he wants to appeal to readers to wake up and make some changes about issues in society.” I think this is a key line becasue we evolve every day nut our society is not perfect. I agree with what you say that the authors of the stories are encouraging us to make changes in society. Another sentence that I read was: “Finally, the three short story “Lesson”, “Everyday Use” and “ How to Date a Browngirl Whitegirl or Halfie” are alike because they demonstrate that everyone has the same love and we don’t know what can happen in our life, therefore, we should treat everyone with the equal.” This stood out for me because there is a lot of racisms in todays world and I do not understand why. Every single one of us are equal despite our herritage, culture, and religion. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because the way you write and express yoursel is awesome.
Dear Leticia I am grateful for your literary analysis “Stories about Equality” because your analysis has relatives evidence of some cases that connect with some people in the U.S.A. This analysis is about education and inequalities that people face everyday. One set of the lines that stands out for me is “everyone has the same love and we don’t know what can happen in our life, therefore, we should treat everyone with the equal.” This line describes the opinion that society needs to put on practice about the issues or differences between education and economics. Another sentence that I impacted was “I can take away from that story is we can always alter people’s consciousness. Despite our social class, we can always be together.”.This stood out for me because you explain your opinion about how you want to change society. These lines have strong words that change the mind of some people. These lines say no more restrictions, no corruption and more union of people. Thanks for your post. I look forward to seeing what you make next. I hope you continue to post interesting analysis or texts like this one.
Dear Leticia, I was really amazed by the manner you wrote your analysis about the three stories which you named “Stories about Equality” because you mentioned several sentences that were holding heavy meanings. I think that these sections shouldn’t be neglected but need to be talked about. The first line in your story is “even though a young boy dated girls from different races, he has to act with esteem in order to get what you want”. I really agree with this sentence because people these days live in different environments and possess different wealth and so comes the difference in behavior and manners. It is not really surprising that boys need to borrow strange actions when it comes to dating girls from different surroundings. The second sentence that I think should be taken in consideration is “Also, he wants to appeal to readers to wake up and make some changes about issues in society”. Most of the time we don’t realise it but some texts or stories are some kind of messages toward the reader. The third most highlighted part of your analysis, is when you mentioned “they demonstrate that everyone has the same love and we don’t know what can happen in our life, therefore, we should treat everyone with the equal”. No one has any idea what life is planning for us and on behalf of that, everyone wants to treat as nice as they can so they will get the same treatment. Thank you for your analysis “Stories about Equality”. I really look forward to seeing what you will accomplish next
Dear Leticia, I am very satisfied by reading your post, “,Stories about Equality” because in this post you claryfie the main point of these stories and how they have similarity. I’m totally agree with you that these stories are taking about people right in our society. In our community there is so many people from differnt group and most of the time coming from the lower income family people does not geth their proper right and freedom. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “In the “ Lesson” the author uses his characters to demonstrate the decision that Dee made complicated her status, but in the end she understood that she has to respect her sister. ” from this line we all have to learn that no matter who you are or where you come from you have to respect everyone. All the people should deserve respecte from their place. Basically, Dee have everything and have the opportunity to get educated this is why she feel proude of herself and do not care about her sister becasue her sister maggie didn’t got all the opportunity as like her such as education but after at the end of the story we can see that Dee understant that she should respect her sister no matter how is she and her personality. I really enjoy reading your post and get to know more about this story from different prespective. Also, I’m agree with you that we should all respect each other. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.
dear Eros I am proof of your letter about your story, “My True Feelings” because I like the way you showed Dee voice as a writer to express through her letter to say what she wants from her family. And this is a situation of many families that has some problems they can just figure out the solution by writing a letter. One line that stands out…[Read more]

Dear Leticia. I am choosing an adjective showing emotion of excited about your story. your story, “It Is How I feel In Real Life” because I like the way that you give voice to a person that you are written for. And this is a situation that many problems have struggling for in reality life thanks to our society influence. One line that stands out for me is,“She does not fortify me with many powerful qualities because she never encourages me like she used to do with Dee.” I think this line is thought-provoking because it catching my attention to know more why you give her voice in your story . Since this sentence have a strong powerful definition to understand your still written. Another line that stands out for me is, “Despite that my mother’s attitude was like I liked her and I will always protect her.” I think this line is compelling because it makes me think in which level mothers are important in our like. And their value is so bigger since we don’t have the right to judge them just love them despite all the things they are doing for us. Your Story helps me to understand a story that I once read on everyday use because in this story it was a problem of a families that one sister was burned and others one no . Then the burn sister the situation was hard for her . I find it was unfair, however when I read your story I realize I’m totally wrong because no human on this earth is perfect so we should love our family specific our mothers. Thanks for your Story I look forward to seeing what you make next . Since I would like to see different type of story in others situation that people don’t consider it . Then using some of strategies elements that we can feel it more. And those can of thing will bring me back to see others creations you made.
Dear Leticia, I am curious about your short story “It’s How I Feel in Real Life”, because I would like to know how Maggie is seen her life through her sister. Your story is great and I like the way you are using imagery to describe things. One line that stands out for me is “ Moreover, I am a burn victim and since that day my mother starts to describe me in less than flattering terms such as a wounded animal who must live her life forever overpowered to forces bigger than her own will.” I think this line is interesting, because Maggie is describing herself of how people see her or treat her. For me she is trying to send a message to her family to consider her as a person not an animal. Another line that stands out for me is, “Also I can thank her because I become more confident after my sister comes to ask about her quilts and then mama defends my best interests” I think line is fascinating because despite all that Maggie endure, she is thankful her mother because she is now defending her and Maggie feels like she is understanding that way her mother and sister play. Thanks for your story, I look forward to seeing what you make next time and I will be so happy to read more of your story. Keep up the good context of writing and can wait.
Dear Leticia I am adoring by your short “It Is How I feel In Real Life” because I like how you used Maggie’s point of view to show how she feel about her life. One set of lines that stands out for me is, “I am rarely present even when I try to pronounce complete sentences.” I think this line is striking because it demonstrated that Maggie did not go to school. Therefore she did not have the opportunity. However her sister went to school. It show how their mother prefer Dee to Maggie. Another line that stands out for me is, “ Despite that my mother attitude was like I liked her and I will always protect her. Also I can thank her because I become more confident after my sister comes to ask about her quilts and then mama defends my best interests.” I think these lines are intriguing because she was saying that her Mama did not love as her sister but at the end she defended her. Your Story remind about our neighborhood back home in Africa. That were two sister whom was always fighting because the eldest one was less beautiful. Therefore she was less popular in school and she stoop going to school because did not have confidence in her. Thanks for your story. I look forward to seeing what you make next. The next story I would like to see you writing about Dee’s point of view. I’m curious to see how you will interpreted it.
I like your story “It Is How I feel In Real Life” because it shows the insecurities that Maggie has to deal with due to her body scars.It also stresses on the power of words and how the words can deeply affect someone’s live. One line that stands out for me is ” I am someone who is barely recognized or even noticed by the world because I am silent and distant. ” because it shows how deeply Maggie affected by her body scars. She almost feel invisible and she doesn’t have a voice. This trauma affected her whole life and she carry it with her. Another line that made me curious is “Despite that my mother attitude was like I liked her and I will always protect her.” . It shows how thankful Maggie is despite the negative attitude that she gets , she is till grateful for her mother . I look forward to read more of your stories and i would like to know why Maggie still grateful to her mother even though her mother didn’t value her.
I am thankfull whit your short story, “It Is How I feel In Real Life” because it is showing more character traits of Maggie. It also show the problems that maggie has in her life due to her scars. One line that stands out for me is, “I am someone who is barely recognized or even noticed by the world because I am silent and distant.” This line is interesting because due to her incident, that made her very distant with her family, makes her feel insecure about herself. Another set of lines that stands out for me is, “Moreover, I am a burn victim and since that day my mother starts to describe me in less than flattering terms such as a wounded animal who must live her life forever overpowered to forces bigger than her own will.” This makes me reflect because many people live their lives thinking like this which is wrong because you have your own will and freedom in your life. Thanks for sharing your short story, “It Is How I feel In Real Life”. I look forward to seeing what you make next.
Dear Leticia, I am compassionate about your short story, “It Is How I feel In Real Life,” because I felt the pain that Maggie went through because of her wounds. Additionally, her insecurity reflected in her behavior which made her more miserable. One line that stands out for me is, “My mother only appreciates my sister” I think this line is descriptive because It was specifically without doubt that her mother only loves her sister. Another line that stands out for me is, “Despite that my mother’s attitude was like I liked her and I will always protect her” I think this line is striking because it comes off like “even if you don’t love me I will and I will alway protect you.” Your story helps me to understand the story “Everyday Use” even more. There is confusion in the story on whether or not mama like Maggie or Dee more. However your short story clarifies it for me. Thanks for your story. I look forward to seeing what you make next. I have a sense of your writing now and I expect more in the future. Your writing is unique and keeps going.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform 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.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
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.
