  • Dear isaiah ,

    i am interested with your post ” a life of a teen ” because you capture what is like living as a teen and the unexpected moments that may take a toll on us .

    one sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is ” two days later i came home and saw her in the couch and when i asked her whats wrong she said ” your grandfa…[Read more]

  • I am, Mariely Padilla. I just turned 18 and I’m on a journey of self identification. What’s important to know about me is that I’m a person who wears their heart on their sleeve and tries everyday to be kin

    • Dear Mariely:
      I am very impressed with your your post “Let Things Out” because you’re a very nice human being and very talented.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I like writing; I just have a lot to express and when I think I’m done expressing there’s more I want to say so I think I can write forever about the things I am passionate about” . I think I can relate because I spend a plethora of time writing poems and it connects because i always have more to say.
      Another sentence that I can relate was: “It has also made me way too mature too soon but I’m grateful for it; this way I have been able to be there for people in ways that I didn’t expect and I embrace it to the fullest”.This stood out for me because I had went through situation that made mature and now i see life with a different perspective.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I went for vacation to Dominican Republic and something bad happened to me. In DR there’s barely any traffic lights , so I was crossing the street and got hit my motorcycle. Thank God I didn’t break a bone but I was really hurt.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you are great at writing and grabbing people’s attention.

    • Thank you so much for sharing your story. It seems like you have a passion for helping others and giving of yourself. You also seem to appreciate every aspect of your life, which is impressive for someone at such a young age. You are also a fantastic story teller- I was intrigued as I read about your life. You have inspired me to take a closer look at my background and appreciate what makes me who I am. Thank you again! I look forward to reading what you write next.

    • I really enjoyed your statement that your “plans for the future are not completely clear yet.” This is incredibly relatable and takes up quite a bit of my own thinking as well. I enjoyed hearing your thought process associated with it. I also admire the options you laid out for your future. Wanting to help people is a very noble goal, and I think it is a great example of the positive and capable character you seem to possess.

      • Thank you , Even if the future may not be clear yet for anyone its still okay to take time for yourself and keep trying in life, its never too late , you’ll get there . always hope.

    • Mariely, this was very intriguing! Your thought process about this topic was very interesting to read and I enjoyed what you had to say. I specifically liked when you said, “This option I was most sure of but any of these options are just options that I’m not sure about, and I also try not be so anxious about the future and try to just simply get somewhere.” I too try not to be so anxious about the future, but it can often be hard! Thank you for this! I look forward to reading to what you write next.

      • Thank you for taking your time to read this ,I’m glad you enjoyed , In the near future just keep on trying often trying is what matters ,you’ll get there.
