Feedback on Cold

"Cold," a breathtaking poem by Audrey Ng, uses touching imagery and visuals to draw in the reader. It is constructing into the shape of rolling hills or waves, depending on your perspective. Audrey is not telling a story but is instead detailing something greater: the raw power of human emotion and selfish thinking.   I loved this poem because it captured so many in short, simple lines and gorgeous figurative language. I particularly loved, "And/ Some/ Day/ We will/ All go deaf/ To the sound/ Of dreaming." This phrase captured my thoughts the moment I read it and could not get it out of my mind. It was provoking, beautiful, and…

The Baltics: Nationalities And Other Problems

“”The Baltics area is fraught with cross ethnic mergings, conquerings bydifferent groups, and control by both small groups like the Teutonic andLivonian knights and by larger entities like the nations of Sweden, Poland,and Russia during the roughly eight centuries of Baltic history.

Fire

Have you ever gotten burned, or touched by flames? I have. It was a cool, summer morning. It was sunny and there was a little wisp of clouds here and there. The air smelled of pine, cherry, oak, and maple trees. I opened the window to my room, looked out, and saw my seven year old brother playing in the backyard. I dragged my eight year old body out of bed, and sleepily walked down the stairs. I went down to our make-shift kitchen in the guest room. Our real kitchen was being remodeled, so we made a make-shift kitchen in the guest room downstairs. I flopped down on the…

Spreading Tobacco Awareness and Taking Action

Hi, my name is Abigail. Lately, I’ve been interested becoming tobacco free and helping to spread awareness. I’ve attended many workshops since I was about 9 years old about spreading tobacco awareness. Although many times I wasn’t registered to attend these workshops, I still learned a lot from them. Today I’m still attending. These workshops are with the New Mexico Voices for Children and one of my favorite activities with this group is attending and participating in the legislative retreat. For this, we get educated on tobacco and how to talk to our representatives and senators about making amendments to the state law to help become smoke free. This year,…

A New Marketing Approach for Nollywood: Developing Research Paper

Introduction Considering Nollywood’s anonymity in the global movie market, it is ironical that Nollywood, the Nigerian movie industry, is considered the third largest film industry in the world.

Most importantly, Nollywood came into existence in the 1990’s, long after Hollywood’s and Bollywood had been established. Nollywood is a unique case study for a number of reasons. The film industry is located in Nigeria the most populous country in Africa. Nollywood’s tremendous growth can be attributed to a ready market within…

Princi-not-my-pal

I ran over to my locker and jumped in. It was all because of the principal. She was walking down the hallway. "Where are you?" she asked in an almost creepy manner. I held my breath. "I know where you live," she added. I heard a pause. I mean, I didn't hear a pause, but I heard the quietness of... Wait, I didn't hear anything, so I assumed she paused. She started walking. I heard the footsteps get closer and closer, then I heard nothing. That was my cue. I kicked my locker door as hard as I could, opening it and smashing her in the face. I watched briefly…

Village Volunteering

Volunteering, forgetting temporarily about your own needs and personal desires and working for another person or a cause, is a wonderful experience. I found that volunteering at a Retirement Community led to even greater things for me. Through volunteering at the Village, the local retirement community, I met inspirational people that I will strive to be like in the future. The residents showed me a different aspect of life, one that was very removed from the daily struggles and pressures of being a teenager. Through them, I learned what it is like to live in the twilight of your life. They have lived long lives and gained wisdom and knowledge…

Fruit Bank

The World Bank estimates indicate that annually, 9.1 million lives, worldwide, are lost to hunger and another 795 million suffer from hunger. Not to mention that one-third of all edible food is wasted. We see this food wastage in our own communities, schools, offices, restaurants, and neighborhoods. In Pleasanton, my hometown, nearly every house has a fruit tree which produces excess fruit every season, which is ultimately wasted. I know there isn't an easy way to solve world hunger, but I have an idea that can get teenagers like me sensitized and involved. I’m proposing a social venture called Fruit Bank!  The idea is for teenagers to collect fruits from…
