I identified with your post , “Rock Climbing Experience,” because In high school, I am taking on challenges, such as language learning (English) and others for my future. I believe that if I can move forward despite several obstacles that arise, I can achieve it. I think that it is worth making an effort because in the future eve…[Read more]
I often wonder to myself , if I did not come to the United States, what would have happened to me? Would everything be easier or more difficult? I came to the United States for my family and for a better future.
I am Surprised about your post “Here, There Everywhere” because are you asking “what would have happened if I had never come to the US?”
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “The reasons why I would have stayed in my native country for my family and because I was more accustomed to the environment” i think this is like because I would have stayed in my country for the people I know and because I’m used to the climate of my country, but sometimes I think of my country and I prefer to stay and live in the US.
Another sentence that I like was “ My experience in the United States has been that you have to face challenges and overcome the obstacle in order to fulfill your goals in the future.” This stood out for me because to talk about the challenges that one has to face when he arrives in this country, as he used to the other language and the country.
Your post remind me of something that happened to me one time.what I’m going through in this country when I came to this country I also had to get used to a new language and to the country and I’m still doing it.
Thank for your writing.
I look forward to seeing what you write next, because. I liked how you wrote your post and if I would like to read another you, because I like how you write everything.
The easiest thing for me was to ask the 10 questions for me and for the world, what I did was the characteristics but I had a little help from the teacher, what I learned today was asking questions about things that we really want to know. What I liked was to express myself in the questions.
What I liked today was the group game. What I did not like was too many tasks to do, but it does not matter, it’s my duty. It was hard for me to do the poem but with help it was easy. I learned to write a lot.
I am amazed by your poem, “Nayelin’s Where I’ From,” because in this poem you let us know you more by the type of food you like to eat and the holidays you like to celebrate.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is : “I am from hard workers,” I think this is very delightful because you are making clear that your family, I think mostly your parents, work very hard to achieve their goals and I’m supposing you will be as successful as your parents might want you to be.
Another sentence that I loved was: “I am from liking to chill with my friends, being with those I love, sleeping , eating, and texting..” This stood out for me because this tells a lot about yourself, I can also relate because I like doing the same thing and I think most teens can relate too, but what I really liked when you said that you liked spending time with those you love because this tells a lot about your personality such as you are super close to your family.
Your poem reminds me of something that happened to me.One time I went to a restaurant with my family, when I had to ask for Ecuadorian food and by just looking at the menu I just felt like I wanted to eat everything but I chose the food that mostly liked,after we finished eating I felt that I was super lucky to be with them and enjoy things with them so I felt super close to my family.
Thanks for your writing.
I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I know what you like and I found out that we have a lot in common and I really like that, and also it seems like you put a lot of effort in your poem.
I am surprised by your poem, “Sacrifice, Hunger, Excitement, and Gratitude,” because we have stuff in common. Some of this things are our hobbies, values and goals. We have some stuff that is different.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “from Sacrifice, Hunger , Excitement, and Gratitude.” I think this is inte…[Read more]
My name is nayelin ferrera, I have 14 years old. I was born on October 1, 2003 and lived in the Bronx New York, what I like to do inside the school is to do my homework and outside of school to be with my friends
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.
