I enjoyed your comic, it was a story on how you found a passion through cars by taking pictures of them. I’ve seen your pictures and they turn out really nice. I like the details you put like the streets it was a nice touch. Keep taking pictures!
I really like how you’re really about your family like everyone else should be. I also like how you showed graphic weight on one of your panels as well. Everyone has different traditions and Im glad you shared yours to us so we can know how you celebrate. Good Job!
I really like how you told this story about your grandma and everything she has taught you, im pretty sure this was a hard topic for you to talk about but it was a great story for you to share. Good Job!
Your memoir is strong and explains who you are today. This piece is a good explaination of how far you have came because of muscle cars and photogrpahy. This memoir helped you realize that photography is a big part in your life and might always be.
I really like your memoir it really shows how who you really are and how you got to this point. The part that really stool out to me is “ I won’t say i’m the best camera person in the car scene but I feel like i’m up there.” This stood out to me because you know your not the best yet but your confident about yourself that you are. I hope to see more of your writing because it really shows who you really are.
I like that you wrote about something you love to do. I also like the way you spaced your poem and the details you put into this. I also liked how you described how it felt to be in a soccer game it made me visualize that I was the one playin soccer lol. Good Job
I like how you started writing with a good hook that made it catch my attention to your poem. I like how you were honest with this poem about yourself. you used good details in here that made your poem interesting to me. Good Job Mijo
Dear Kevin, I like how you wrote this poem, it kinda made it seem like you was writing a rap song or something cause you rhymed a bit. Im glad that you don’t care about what others think of you and you don’t let anything get to you. Good job!
This is very strong and clear to the point. I like how your poem sound like you even though you aren’t reading it out loud but the way you wrote it sound exactly like you. I have known u for our 4 years in high school and you have always been the chillest and laidback person. Good job!
I like how you wrote this and it seems interesting to me that when you were growing up you didn’t like your name so much until you grew into it and that when I was growing up I liked my name a lot and when I found out I had a step brother I started to hate my name. Good Job!
Luis Fernando Carrillo is my full name but, not everyone knows my middle name. I don’t talk about my middle name because it’s not for me. My dad’s full name is the exact same as mine so I’m just a Jr. However, eve
Your piece said a lot about the type of person you are. You are a strong person who struggled to accept your name but at the end of the day you take pride in it, forgetting the negative story behind it. I liked it and it was really nice to read the metaphors. Great Job!!
Luis – your problematic relationship with the name “Fernando” makes sense. I’m sorry that you have to carry that. I hope that the load continues to get lighter as you get older. Thank you for sharing and being vulnerable.
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.
