Estoy asombrada por tu poema, “De donde soy,” porque aprendí de una cultura nueva que nunca había escuchado. Yo soy de El Salvador y vivo en California.
Una frase que escribiste que se destaca para mi es “De mi padre, Pervez diciendo: ‘Es hora de ir a la cama, Maria’ y mi madre Tanzeela diciendo ‘Es peligroso afuera’” porque muchos de los papas de mi comunidad les dicen las mismas cosas a sus hijos. Veo que somos muy diferentes de algunas maneras, pero iguales en otras maneras.
Gracias por tu escritura. Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación, porque quiero aprender mas sobre tu cultura. Cual es tu tradición favorita?

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “my family they become good friends because my neighbor speak Urdu and my family too so is easy to communicate with them. ” I think this is good because EG- In my neighborhood speak English and Spanish but my mother can’t too much speak English and also she can’t speak Spanish. So she can’t communicated with them.
Another sentence that I like is “We enjoy with our neighbor so much and sometime we eat together. Also, we go sometime park, grocery, and shopping store. This stood out for me because it’s really nice.

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.
