Tears roll down her cheeks as she wished in her little mind that she could help in this situation. She was scared and all she has is just the tears rolling down her cheeks. She has been pleading but he is too busy to hear her tiny voice. She wishes that it was just a nightmare.She can’t believe that the man she calls Daddy is hitting the woman who has always been by her side and told her jokes after school. He is beating her Mommy. She is struggling for her life on the floor as he holds her thro...

In most parts of the world particularly in Africa where I come from, Public Speaking is considered an extracurricular activity, which is given little or no attention by the majority of people. The best defense these people have is that "I DON'T NEED IT", and this perception is conceived mostly by students or people who pursue an academic or professional career in the Science field.As an activity, Public Speaking does not restrict itself to the conventional individual and audience talk, but it tr...

Thinking again of the world coldHell bent on freezing your soulHiding yourself in youBy fancy clothes and shoesWorried of being a shade darkerAnd not of the soul's sparkleSuffering in thoughts than realityFeeling nothing but self pityLike neo, just take the red pillTo be you, all needed is willRub your eyes, let do of illusionsOpinions?

Lately, I've been reading a lot about the different events that are going on in the world and how we need to make a change.Change, it seems to be the magic word nowadays...Growing up, I always heard the people around me say thing like: "the world has always been a mess, it is never going to change", or "young people think they can change the world, but it can't be changed. It is what it is", and so on.Then, the elderly tell me there's nothing they can do, it is too late for them... it all depend...


Investing in women and children is of great necessity in Nigeria in particular and Africa in general. As a child, I grew up in a village called Umutu, in Ukwuani Local Government Area of Delta State, Nigeria. Before now, there had been inadequate provision and access to healthcare facilities in rural communities of Delta State. This led to the patronage of traditional birth attendants during delivery. Although, some school of thoughts argued that some level of success was recorded by traditio...

I am no political scientist or national security expert; I am simply a young student watching from the sidelines as the world falls back to the cold war era and the threat of nuclear annihilation once again becomes real. Originating from Cyprus I have always known that before I even turn 18 I will be conscripted into the armed forces and therefore joining this 'shadow-world' as I like to call it as, despite the fact that it keeps our world balanced, we ignore its existence almost every second of...

2017 is reaching it’s end, we’re more than half way through it. But rarely does it strike many of us, because it strikes the minds of only those who’ve lived a different life, an entirely different story in the past eight months, contrary to the ones who’ve been in a stable and similar place as the last year.Here, I do not by any means disregard the stability and similarity which a lot of people have experienced this year, in comparison to either just the last year or maybe the past few years. I...

Sitting cross-legged on a rooftop in Acre, I stared with awe as I watched the bright orange sun begin to to set, casting a mystical light across the city. Everything around me looked picturesque, the world feeling still and silent. I had only been in Israel for a week at this point, but I already had developed a connection to the land and its history, both its triumphs and struggles. I gazed around in an attempt to not miss a single thing the view had to offer, from the green dome of the mosque...

Mud.Blood.Scar.War.Are you right? Are they wrong? This is a fightWith real bombs.There is killingAnd no fulfilling.I'm so tired, I'm just a little girl, I only desireTo hear a little lullabyIn which all the people stand together, Their origin doesn't matter.Because peace frees them all, And you hear people call:I'm a human just like you! The others answer: I'm a human like you too! Dream.Gleam.WorldPeace.
