I liked how you used descriptive words so I, the reader, could picture the scenery in my mind. The best part I liked is how you closed your poem. “… from patience and from being successful, Dreaming and enjoying. I am from these moments. I am from this home of love.” I just thought it was cool because I could relate to that.
I love everything what you post about. It was interesting to me read about that what you write. I’m want to be artist so I heart about that the art is frowned upon. I’m totally agree with you.
The question that I choose is what life will I have in my future? I’m often thinking about this question, because I don’t know what will happen in my future, what good things will be or what not good. Nobody
I was surprised to read the post about the future. It was awesome because of talk about “your future,” you are wondrous because you support yourself. You still thinking about your future that is helpful. We don’t know what is your future is gonna be, you have to find out on yourself.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ I’m always asking myself about my future, questions like what will I be” I think this is a good idea because… you have to find out what is your future is gonna be, nobody couldn’t find out what is your future, and nobody knows what is you won’t be
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what is your future gonna be, good luck
Thanks for this poem about “Bench”. I really like picture that you post it’s really beautiful and unusual, also I like most is the poem that you wrote. In this picture things that effected me is unusual sky with different colors and sunshine in the middle.
I am inspired by your post,”Me, Immigration and Justice,” because I like that what about you write. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is ” a man walked to the front of me and said “Oh! Chinese girl is beautiful. I love Chinese girl.” In my opinion, this was unjust because this man did not respect me.” I think this is hor…[Read more]

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.
