This was the topic for my extempore when I was applying for a post in "some" company. It baffled me at first, I found it an incomprehensible question. The most I could understand was that they wanted me to discuss the goals, aims and aspirations of our generation.What first came to mind for my response was gender equality. Being a citizen of developing nation, I still find a tacit norm of do's and don'ts based on your gender. Although there is a constitutional right of every individual to pursue...

We were born curious.Curiosity is the basis of any human endeavour which makes us different from other species. And it is the basis for any form of knowledge known to us. From the very moment we were born, we were thirsty for an understanding of the unknown. It is possible that, the flame within us which attracted any new knowledge about the world around us started to die, the day we were officially permitted to learn. Our notion about learning changed the way we look around us. We were no long...

I am the daughter of a single mom. Single parenting is constantly increasing at the rate of 15 million single mothers in the USA. What is the life of a single mom? It is lonely and financially draining. It is a race against the clock. It is exhaustion, it is double parenting 24-7. It is never giving up. Single moms are left alone to raise a child, oftentimes, more than one. My mom is a single mom who does it all, every day, without complaint. I am her world, and she will climb the highest m...

Imagine you are seeing a psychiatrist because you have no idea what's happening to you.Imagine you have just been diagnosed with a mental disorder.Imagine you are self harming.I have a good life. Whether or not my life is good might be subjective; but let's just stick with that I have a good one. My story with mental illness began when a famous K-pop star committed suicide. I finally confronted myself about my self harm. Yes, self harm which I had no idea was linked to my depression and general...

This post was originally published on Voices of Youth Cambodia by Monineath Nop, on the occasion of World Skills Day 2018. The final exam is coming; your right hand is holding a book scanning necessary vocabulary while your left hand is holding a cup of coffee. Empty coffee cups start stacking up next to your desk as they accompany you reviewing your lessons, yet you could barely concentrate on the book. Does this sound familiar to you? Been there, done that! We are somehow influenced by th...

This post was originally published on Voices of Youth Cambodia by Vanly Keomuda, on the occasion of World Skills Day 2018. “What is your future prospect for choosing this major?” I first heard the question above on the first day that I began a new chapter in my life — the very first day that I started college. I remembered my lecturer going around the classroom asking everyone this simple, but profound question. Back then, I remembered hearing all kinds of ambitious and optimistic answers f...

This post was originally published on Voices of Youth Cambodia by Chheng Sotharath, on the occasion of World Skills Day 2018. Being in your 20s is probably the age of uncertainty in almost every aspect of your life. At this point, if you still feel like you’re not ready to “adult’ yet and you really don’t know what’s gonna happen, you are not alone. One of the most common uncertainties that Cambodian youth these days encounter is finding the right career for themselves. There are many chall...

Honduras. At the age of 12, like many other girls, I spent my time playing with my friends from school, studying, or perhaps in my room reading an interesting book- leading what I believed to be a life totally normal for a girl. Now I wonder... What would have happened? If my parents had told me: We have a husband for you, you marry him in 3 months, or for some socio-economic reason against my will I would have to marry at 12 years old. I probably would not have understood or I would ha...

Picture a city with cookie-cutter houses aligned and tightly packed together in the interior of brand-new neighborhoods lined with palm trees. All around, there are Latino women respectfully kissing everyone on the cheek and Latino men playfully greeting one another by vigorously patting each other's back. While they all discuss the latest chisme [gossip] and last night’s fútbol [soccer] game, the sun-kissed streets are filled with loud, energetic children laughing and kicking worn-out soccer ba...
