This group of words is amazing! It’s like I can hear your voice speaking. An example of how these words are impacted your life might make the essay better, but otherwise it was great. I love the image you choose. Perfect description.
One thing that stands out for me is, “Resilience is so much more than a word, so much more than a feeling, it is going through a painful experience and coming out the other side. It is living a painful life everyday and yet still living it.” I think this is a powerful sentence because there are so many people in the world going through things most people couldn’t understand but they are trying their hardest to come out of that experience with so much strength and bravery because they still want to live life as much as they can; they’re doing it to better themselves in an emotional way.
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.
