She was a slave girl. She did all she was asked to do. Her masters asked for water, she quickly brought some, they drank of the cup and the rest was turned on her head over her body. Her masters asked for vegetables to make food, she was given none of the meal and when they were done, they threw the stems at her. Her masters asked her to fetch wood to make fire when it was cold, this she did and she was put out in the cold without any wood to make her own fire. Eventually, she beca...

Feminist are just fighting for equality, not taking over the world. When I first came out as a feminist, and spoke about sexism and rape, there were people who laughed. I, myself, don't find anything funny about it. We should all use our voices and stan...

Living in Jakarta made me vulnerable to floods during the rainy season. Floods often impact the lives of my friends and me because we live in an unsafe environment; by the river. When the flood comes, me, my peers, and other children in this place would be forced to use dirty water to shower and wash our food. As a result, diseases such as diarrhea, vomiting, skin diseases, and others affect us. These floods often reach up to a height of 2 meters, which often damage our homes and f...

Eyes in the sky, a watchful protector. To serve, to guard, as faith’s connector. Knowledged, well versed in the stories of pain. Informed, connected, yet still we refrain. To aid, to act for those in need, who beg to us, their children to feed. And as we look to the skies above, and question the world, where is our love? So they look to the world above, and question your heart, where is our love? For life is...
