Sharing your ideas and thoughts with people from around the globe is one of the main purposes of social media. These virtual tools of communication have changed the course of history many times during the last few years. I, for instance, was able to communicate with many people from around the world. I have also had the privilege of making new friends with different people from different backgrounds. Through social media, I’ve been able to share my dreams with others who believe in...

The youth have the power to immerse themselves in the ongoing events in the world. They are enthusiastic and vigilant. For the past few years, there was a dramatic change in youth voices, especially in Asia. Along with quick ability to grasp technological knowledge, the young voices bring out issues in the society while cynically looking down upon most of those incidents which reflect faults of authorities. This beginning of a new era where the youth has mastered a skill to look at...

On the 9th and 10th of November, UNICEF together with the Government of Finland hosted a really awesome summit all about innovation for children and young people. During the summit, I was lucky to attend a session where a group of young innovators told us about their projects. So I asked them to share some of their thoughts with us on what inspires them and why innovation is important. From Sierra Leone, meet Jasonta (18), Oswald (24) and Vandy (20)…and from Kosovo, Diona (18)...

1. Respect what other people are saying on social media, even if you do not agree with them. 2. You have the right to privacy - and so do others. It is not okay to log into other people’s accounts or to use their phones or profiles without their permission. 3. Don’t spread rumors or post/share hurtful or embarrassing stories or photos.Things that may seem funny can hurt someone. 4. Think twice before you click ‘send’ - especially if you’re upset or angry. Once you share a p...

Especially in this day and age, it is so easy for young people to lose themselves in the technological dilemma and social media frenzy. There is no denying that young people are so incredibly vulnerable and prone to the influences of society, whether it be technology, media, global trends etc. And amidst the filters, editing and photo-shopping of people, places and events, we often forget to distinguish between what is a version of ‘truth’ and what is in actuality, fact. Let’s...

Being a teenager in today's society is arguably harder than it's ever been before. Amidst the usual and normal pangs of adolescent angst, hormone-driven heartbreak, and the arduous and timeless journey of self-discovery lies a new monster, unique to our time. This monster is not hiding under your bed waiting for the lights to go out; it's not in your closet biding his time; it's not lurking in the depths of Loch Ness (#nessieisjustcamerashy). No, the leviathan of which I speak we...

My name is Nicky and earlier this year I started working for a charity called Mankind. In my previous job I was working with lots of girls who had been affected by, or who were at risk of, being sexually exploited. I then started working with some young men who I was very concerned about as their behaviour suggested that they too were being sexually exploited. I shared my concerns with many professionals and was shocked by the different responses I received. It became clear that pe...

Contrary to expectations, the elections were free, fair, devoid of wrangling. The opposition party held sway and gained the upper hand it the polls. The opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) also took the majority of the Senate seats and enjoyed wide support and acceptance from the populace. It was also...
