In the words of Franklin D Roosevelt -"We cannot always build the future for the youth, but we can build out youth for the future"While India houses a massive 17%(1) of the world population, it is also home to nearly 116 million(2) children living in extreme poverty and poor conditions. The huge gap between the rich and the poor is attributed to various factors including lack of opportunities, deficiency in the facilities of growth, loopholes in implementation of welfare schemes, and so on. Desp...

Today, when I read about the violence in Eastern Ghouta, Syria, my blood started to boil. I just realized that all of this started in 2011, and it is 2018 today, and still, the WAR IS ON! I have been wanting to write about this for a very long time, and I think today is the perfect day to pour my emotions out! 'A pen is mightier than the sword' and this seems to be the best way to channel my anger, at the moment.A boom here, a crash there,And heaps of loss everywhere.It's been 7 years. 7 long ye...

Rejection: A Beginning or an End?

Rejection is both a beginning and an end. It is a beginning for you to start a new chapter, to begin a new story, and an open door leading to new chances and opportunities. Yet, it is also an end to a story, to a journey, and removing people who aren't meant to be in your life.Being a pessimist in my 15 years of existence, I always think that rejection is something that people won't choose. Rejection may be an end for most of us because we are blinded by the sadness it gives. But, if we look dee...

When I joined VOY years ago, I was 17, and still in High School. I had a very regular life: I used to wake up, go to school, come back home, study, sleep and repeat. I used to live in my own shell focused on my own life problems, like how to have a good social life or get better grades at school. On weekends, I would spend time with my family and then go back to that routine on Monday. Then gradually everything changed. I got back the voice I lost, the light that faded, and since then there has...

Unity,The hope for this World,As we sit here today,The World isn’t all that gray,Our actions are the light,That can steer this generation right,To where many have dreamed,But what was deemed,To be impossible with all they have seen,There maybe some,Whom say we are too young,That our tongues are among those silenced,And that we should wait for our turn,Because theirs is just getting started,Now listen here,Let me share your ear,Because what I say next is no Shakespeare,Your voice does matter,How...

"Do you cook?" My Aunt Funmi asked me."No, I'm hopelessly lost in the kitchen.""You had better learn," she advised me. "For when you get married and you have to cook for your husband."I had decided to spend the summer of 2016 in my uncle's house in Abuja, the nation's capital. It was during my stay there that I realised that there were so many things that I took for granted that other people have to fight for. Back at home, it did not matter if you were male or female, we were all judged by the...

Have you entered your imagination while reading a book? I always go deep inside a story while reading it; and trust me it gives joy. In this era of technology, we are always busy with the internet, our mobiles and laptops. But we should sometimes take some rest and put these things aside.Every day, before going to bed I put my mobile aside and read a book. It not only relaxes me, it also gives me some inner peace. We all know that "knowledge is power". And we can gain knowledge by reading books....

7 years ago, a group of young people stood up in front of the policymakers during the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Vienna to raise their voice about drugs for the first time.Drugs impact young people more than anyone else; they impact their families, their friends, and their education. So it is only fair that young people get engaged in prevention activities and make sure that they and their peers are strong enough to deal with cha...
