"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...

2011I was 11-years-old when the war started in my country, Syria. I was too young to understand what was happening.Before the war started, my life was perfect, I had everything I wanted, I had many friends, my family and I had spent time together, we were a happy family and no one had to leave our home country. I had many dreams: I wanted to be a doctor, be with my friends forever, or grow older in the same place where I lived.But suddenly, I found myself without dreams, friends, or dolls. I wok...

Applaud a caring daughter not by saying you are my son; but by saying you are my child. Applaud a brave woman not by saying you are brave like man; but by saying you are brave. If applauded for not being a women but merely acting like a man; how should we take it: as a praise, an insult or a phase of an unexplained inequality?We are Living in a century where gender equality exists but we stand at a position where it’s just prevailing for the sake of it. We are the survivors of the "unexplained i...

For a moment I thought I was at the popular 'Makoko' in Lagos state, Nigeria. Kids running around naked, houses built on wooden support, schools sited on a large expanse of wastes as in a slum and yet people living normally as though they were on a gold mine! This is not Makoko, but another Low income community in Lagos; and this is where I met her.She should be in her early thirties or late twenties and already has four children with no husband or support. As we talked, the sun shone brightly;...

How would you want to remember me? Would it be fine if I’m remembered as the person that caused a lot of heartache everywhere he went? Or not? Would you be offended if you remembered me during those times of peace and harvest around the village, as the person that destroyed it all and left you to pick up the crumbs? Many people will testify that I’m that one person that saved them from doing something they would regret their whole lives. Would you want to remember me that way? Do I wan...

My mind, Joins your stride. Every early morning, You abide, The same routine. They taunt, Us flaunting, To a higher stage. While they wait, On the side-lines, Afraid.

Ageless Dreams.

While some of us were born strong and fearless, others may be born less strong and fighting their own fears. Some people might have been able to embrace the world, while some of us spent most of their life struggling through every step of the path. Some of us might have a life time of searching for themselves and trying to understand who they are. A life time of trying to accept themselves and to see through their imperfections. It is not easy, sometimes, to enjoy a simple life where everything...
