“Mingalarbar!” My name is Kyay Mon and that’s how we say “hello” in my country, Myanmar. I’m studying International Relations in Japan at the moment. Here are a few things about me. “We don’t have many possessions to leave you with when we die. But this is what we can give you while we’re still alive: a good education, a strong character and our unconditional love.” That's what my parents said to my sister and me when we were growing up. Our family may not be rich...


In traditional Setswana culture and in the broader sense the African tradition, children have no say in the day to day running of the household. They are merely pawns in a chess game and can only really comment and\or contribute when they are older and have their own families. This is similar to how young people used to have no say in the governance of their countries until they were adults. This however, is not the case anymore as times have changed. Young people have a voice...


Hello everyone! I’m Andrew, nice to meet you! Before I start posting on VOY, I’d like to introduce myself, tell everyone why I write and how I want to contribute to the VOY community over the next few months. I was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. During highschool I had a reputation for being a dedicated yet unsuccessful student. It was only when I received a call from the hospital, giving me the bad news about my grandpa, that I realized how vague and meaningless my li...


Hello, World! It is the middle of the week, such grey, but a beautiful day. Unceasing wind is blowing into my hair, I can hear its sound. It is relaxing and pretty busy at the same time. Only young ambitious people can create such an environment, and I am glad to be at this stage of my life, at this place, where nobody judges you, you are the only one who is responsible for your life. My name is Begimai Sataeva. Biologically I am a 20-year young girl. I was born in the Kyrg...


The time has finally come for me to write my first Voices of Youth blog post ever! I am not going to lie, I am a bit worried. But at the same time I am more than confident that this experience will teach me not only how to write interesting and captivating blogs in English, but also how to discuss global issues with other young people and, as a result, how to figure out solutions to them. So, first things first. Let's start with a description of me! My name is Andrea, I am...


My Name is Caroline Orao. I am an adventurous, spontaneous girl who loves Jesus, movies, family, friends, dancing salsa, reading novels and taking pictures. I am passionate about marketing and I like to think that I’m funny and that I am a pretty decent human being. I recently completed my undergrad studies at The University of Nairobi where I pursued a Bachelor’s in Commerce, specializing in marketing. I was named after my aunt; she and my mom were very close but unfortunately I nev...


Agandi is “hello” in my mother’s mother tongue, although “hello” doesn’t quite describe it which, is usually the case for many words in the local languages in Uganda. Often there isn’t really a direct translation seeing as the meaning is more implied than an actual word. My name is Pearl; I am a 24-year-old from Uganda, East Africa. With every passing year, there are more references to Africa as a country, which honestly makes no sense to me because Google was supposed to make...


Hello, my name is Christina Batrouni, and I’m a 19 year old student living in Lebanon. I am a person who is very fond of art; and all types of art, ranging from film to books and so on. As a student pursuing her undergraduate studies in English Literature, I have started writing my first novel. After three weeks of constant editing, I was able to craft seven stable chapters. I have always dreamt of writing a novel in entirety, ever since I was eight years old. I found ins...


‘I am soil, water, wind and spirit – a peculiar silhouette of this combination, unfolding my own myth, I am no different than Mr. President, only bearing a distinct face for good'. The lines are repeated. Unsatisfied in echoing my old stale self, this is when I chose to decorate my conscience in silence. Weighing my presence in the meters of being a Pakistani, a to be-dentist, a social media lover, a philosopher, a bibliophile and an uneasy soul who just can’t keep her business o...
