Consistently you would espouse that this is the revolutionary time period of education as society considers it immensely, more than ever. While the contribution of educating the community, society needs to be convinced the purpose of education. Your involved subject may be biology, law, psychology, business finance, engineering etc; however, does education only advance you to become an expert in your specified area? As well having exams and certificates does not belong to the menti...

So many people hate LGTB people. But why? Why make someone's life a living hell because you are something. It's like picking on somebody and creating a world wide hate to someone that has brown hair.

Hello everyone.. My first reblog on VOY is going to be a recent post I read written by the blogging intern Maria (http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/users/227642).The subject of the post is the rights of LGBT people. And to be honest with you, this post is to express my feelings about this subject. LGBT people are a community that has faced racism, discrimination and prejudice over the years. Even though we live in 2014, in the 21st century, many people still spread hate towards...

Million of ideas cook up in our mental stoves Minute by minute our minds travel miles away If wishes were horses, beggars might ride Messages get lost in the noise The tide falls and rises The ocean tongue licks the seashore. The tail of the lion wiggles joyfully at the prey The tune of the music pours fragrance on the soul We follow a path while limitless trail exist We fiddle with the wind, rather than generate a fortune from it We feel comfort...

LOCAL HERO: France Albert Rene A blog post will never do justice to this man but I will do my best to show why he is a local hero to many. Colonial era The Seychelles was a colony in both the French and English empire. The Seychelles had cinnamon, copra and vanilla plantations owned by the European ‘white’ masters and worked on by the slave ‘black’ population from East Africa and Madagascar. In 1835 slavery was abolished but the plantations continued. The m...

Hi everyone! I´ve repeated several times and I guess it´s known how safe Chile is, and that´s one of the reasons why it´s international relations are stable and reciprocal in many cases. However something not commonly seen has been happening lately, bomb explosions have been taking place in public spaces of Santiago and Viña del Mar. Why is it controversial? Well, to make it simple, because Chile is the kind of county where this kind of thing doesn't happen and no one wo...

The recent wedding between a senior British diplomat to his male partner in Beijing has instigated a discussion over gay rights in China. You can read about it here. The couple's posting of their wedding on Chinese site Weibo was quickly shared more than 60,000 times. However many Chinese commentators took to Weibo and other social media websites to attack the couple. One said, “That country [Britain] is sick. It’s like the last days of Rome”. Another said that same-sex...

High School has gone by more quickly than I would have ever imagined. Most of us get overwhelmed with attempting to balance school, sports, extracurricular activities and social life (if you don’t, you are a super human, props). Time gets so limited that even every second counts. I laughed as a sixth grader because the Dean would always tell my class that “these seven years will fly by” and I thought it was so ridiculous. Well here I am, and now I realize how naïve I was. Being a junior i...

All these past days of September have been fun for me! Why? Because I have been choosen as a youth mapper! I thought that all I had to do was take pictures and post them online, but no, it's more than that. Because I am not only mapping but I am also enlightening people. Poor refuse disposal. This is the major challenge in my country and in my mapping area (Kano, Nigeria), people tend to dispose refuse in any available space they see due to lack of recycling companies....

Many Nigerians have, in recent months, decried the low level of participation of the youth in governance. The issue has become a trending topic both online and offline but this did not just happen in an instant. During a national conference earlier this year, a coalition of youths brought the issue to the fore. They affirmed that the estimated population of Nigerian youths, which constitute about 70 percent of the population, is twice the population of Ghana and more than the p...
