She was beaten and slapped, For 'Dowry',by her 'prestigious' husband, And she shouted for help, But I couldn't, I was a Bystander... Her genitals were touched and pressed, For 'pleasure', by inhuman wild crowd, And she died crying for rescue, But I couldn't, I was a bystander... Her cloths removed, body burnt, For being a 'witch', by 'God-like' society, And she screamed for painless death, Still I couldn't, I was a bystander... My tu...

When I attempted to join my school’s academic team in fifth grade, I saw that the team was made up entirely of boys. “Are you sure you belong here?” The teacher asked me, genuinely concerned that I had gotten lost and wandered into the wrong classroom. I joined the team, if you were wondering, and ending up winning an award for an academic competition’s individual portion. The man handing me the award stopped as he took a moment to scan me and my team, noticing that I was...

Dear someone in particular, hard cover, yet so protected. paper bound, yet not fragile. spiral bound, yet so simple to handle. It’s like the whole world is scattered in you. All sorts of people coming together to form one chapter of you till it tries to find a happy ending. Even in the saddest of times, the worst of crimes, someplace deep inside our heart, we all crave for that happy ending. I lose myself in you. It’s in you, that angels come and whisper songs i...

I live in Kosovo. Kosovo is landlocked in the central Balkan Peninsula. With its strategic position in the Balkans, it serves as an important link in the connection between central and south Europe, the Adriatic Sea, and Black Sea. Its capital city and the city I was born and raised is Prishtina. We are a very welcoming country. Here you can find the nicest people you will ever meet. Kosovo has gone through many tough times and the last war was the hardest thing my country had to deal with. Tod...

The general concerns expressed by the young people with disabilities are numerable, especially in the developing countries of the world. While youth with visual impairment face the difficulties of accessing education, reading material, people with physical disabilities face barriers due to no ramps and elevators. Commonly, all people with disability face and suffer discrimination and social exclusion in one form or the other. I intend to reflect on the challenges faced by students...

Education is a human right and need for everyone in the world. How I wake up every morning taking for granted the fact that I have the ability to go to school every weekday here in the United States. My great grandmother (who lived in the period of the British Raj in India) only had a seventh grade education. My grandmother had a post secondary education, but only at a local school and college. My mother traveled to different states in India to study and get a job, but she neve...

Kenya is facing drought. The last time we had adequate amounts of rainfall was last year's long rain season, March to May. To understand how serious this is, you first have to understand the seasons in Kenya. We have four seasons: hot and dry season from December to February, long rains season from March to May, cold and wet season from June to August and lastly, short rains season from September to October. It is also important to note that agriculture is the backbone of...

When you find out perfect is just a word You'll learn to live You'll learn to love When you find out perfect doesn't exist You'll learn to appriciate the little things The little weight you've gained The little spots on your cheeks When you find out what beautiful means Then for sure you'll know what perfect is

Be you. Be the amazing you. No matter what you have to go through in life, no matter what people say, what they think you should change about yourself, no matter what you have to overcome, do it the way you do it. There is nothing as courageous as staying true to yourself while you deal with life. There is nothing as precious as believing in yourself and reaching your goals and still managing to be yourself throughout it all. Let you be different, because being different make...
