Hello. My name is Makenna Nowling. I am a very funny, unique, kind, and friendly person. I am also very sweet. I was born on February 17th, 2000. A turning point in my life was when I met the most important person
Hailey, your post was really inspiring. I have a personal connection. I don’t have a younger sibling but I had to be my own role model until I was about 15 and finally found a great role model. I basically basically had to raise myself and take care of my mom. I was and still am kind of like the parent in my house.
Eric, I can connect to your post. Being a high school student as well as a teenager, I experience a lot and understand your post well. Your post really inspired me. The way you worded your post was awesome!
Alzahra, I am intrigued with your post. I was also inspired. I like how you stated things to do or as reminders. Those are all good things to hear in the morning or even throughout the day. At the very end I really like how you said, “….you mean to say that after all you’re just going to let people be the reason to change you”
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.
