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: Chaltu Deka | Ambassador Class: 2020 | Grade: 10
In her essay, Chaltu presents evidence that black people tend to face harsher sentences than white people, and argues that individuals with strong influence within the criminal justice system should work towards eliminating racial bias so that justice is delivered.
Student Ambassador: Rebecca Spring | Ambassador Class: 2019 | Grade: 7
Rebecca argues that the US government needs to stop sending military aid, and stop supporting coups and civil wars, because that money is what causes so much violence and destruction, and if the US hadn’t interfered in Central America, many immigrants might not have fled their homes to come here.
Student Ambassador: Caden Turner-Adams | Ambassador Class: 2019 | Grade: 10
In his essay, Caden argues that there are plenty of children in the world who want to learn, but don't have the opportunity. Education is a gateway for them to see and experience the world in new ways, and providing it to all kids will help society be equipped to deal with other crucial global issues.
Student Ambassador: Mikel Poole | Ambassador Class: 2019 | Grade: 10
Mikel's argument is that providing the black community with access to the medicine and support they need will help normalize the topic so people can talk about it and stop the generational neglect of black people’s mental health and well-being.
Student Ambassador: Amyah Foster | Ambassador Class: 2019 | Grade: 6
In her essay, Amyah argues that women do not receive equal pay due to both gender and racial discrimination. She does not want her future compromised and feels that women need to speak out and that the government needs to implement some changes.
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: Nicole Pendergast | Ambassador Class: 2019 | Grade: 10
Nicole claims that LGBTQ bullying at schools can be counteracted, and schools made safer, by protecting youth privacy, not disclosing any of students’ important information, and creating Gay-Straight Alliances.
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.
