Student Writing

One World Education believes that students should write to be read, in addition to earning a grade. We select and publish around 1% of the exemplary writing from Student Ambassadors who completed the One World Program in order to model grade-level writing and to create a forum for peer-to-peer learning. Additionally, every student-authored essay is accompanied by a Reflection Experience, which is a series of content and reading comprehension assessments.

Student Ambassador: Nyla Thomas | Ambassador Class: 2019 | Grade: 7
Nyla argues that minorities in America are disproportionately disciplined in school and how this affects students in a negative way that can lead to isolation, students being disengaged in class, students being pushed out of school, and engaging in criminal behavior.
Student Ambassador: Mina Swaminathan | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 10
In her essay, Mina argues why she believes it should become a legislative priority to serve and protect pro-choice laws. The current pro-choice laws should not be revoked because abortion laws are safe, and save unwanted children and unprepared parents from grim life prospects.
Student Ambassador: Jamal Daniels | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 8
Jamal argues that regulations should be put in place to control police access to personal emails and computers, as it is unlawful for police to intrude into the lives of citizens in this way. Citizens must demand the restriction of police access to protect their constitutional rights.
Student Ambassador: Emelda Nyajok | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 10
In her essay, Emelda argues that a basic human right is the right to an education. She looks at why there are over 60 million girls unable to attend school worldwide and what needs to be done to correct this and improve the livelihoods of even more.
Student Ambassador: Sterling Zapata | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 10
Sterling advocates for the indefinite ban of nuclear weapons, debating how nuclear weapons have proven themselves, throughout the ages, to have a negative impact on our economy, the environment, and our population.
Student Ambassador: Alexandra Fedorova | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 7
In her essay, Alexandra argues that if the government and wildlife protectors build or improve existing nature reserves and have more conservation programs, then deforestation will have less effect on our earth.
Student Ambassador: Willa Hance | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 8
Willa claims that girls and women are marginalized by the fact that feminine hygiene products are subject to the luxury tax, arguing the "tampon tax" is sexist and classist and must be removed to help improve the lives of millions of women in the US.
Student Ambassador: Makaio McCaskill | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 10
In his essay, Makaio calls out the prevalence of racial profiling in the US justice system and explores the ramifications it has on black men and their families. He argues that black families should be protected by laws that are fairly applied to everyone equally.
Student Ambassador: Luwam Seyoum | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 10
Luwam describes the scope of gun violence in America, suggests how laws could be improved, and argues that if we had stronger restrictions that enforce gun laws, we would see a significant reduction in the number of deaths related to gun violence.
Student Ambassador: Kalkidan Haile | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 10
In her essay, Kalkidan discusses the problem of teen pregnancy and proposes several solutions, including funding programs that help pregnant teens, having sex education start in middle school, and having more accessible and confidential contraceptive services for teens around the world and the US.
