Though Teen's Eyes Essay Entry
The Through Teens' Eyes project of San Jose's District 2 Youth Advisory Council is collecting personal stories and accounts from teenagers across the community with the goal of uniting the youth together. There are so many unheard voices, especially those of teens, hidden in the niches of the world. Keep in mind this website is not affiliated with the government of San Jose.

Writing is a way for people to share what they feel and what they think. So often, our society prevents people from talking about controversial issues because it instigates fear concerning what others may think. We tell these people to remain silent because we refuse to be associated with their problems. However, a project like this has the potential to change people's lives and positively impact the community by opening up people's eyes to the voices of the youth.
Our goal is to:
1) Help others understand what teens are going through.
2) Assure teens that they are not alone in their hardship or emotional bouts, whether it's euphoria, anger, fear, etc.
3) Connect people at a deeper, more emotional level and encourage the youth to emerge from their comfort zones.
THE DUE DATE TO THIS PROJECT IS: June 17, 2017!
