LOST. I feel completely lost. I lack direction.Let me explain...Everyone believes they have a bright future right? Me too. The problem is, I don't know in what (career wise, to be clear). Since I was young, I've wanted to be a singer and use it to change the world. Of course, my dream was shunned by many and people kept telling me I would grow out of it when reality would hit. Sadly, but truly, I was hit by reality and here I am losing my passion to be a singer everyday. I barely even sing anymo...

Dear Leaders, Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings and Queens of this Earth It is time to speak up, we as the future of this mighty planet have a voice, and our opinion is worth to be heard. Let me start off by saying thank you. Without your great leadership the world would not look like it does today. BUT there are so many problems that you are unwilling to tackle, for power, money, influence or your own interests, sake. In this open letter to you, the leaders of the free world, I would like to c...

Hey, I don't know who you are or what is going on in your life. But I want to say to you the simple truth that everybody denies: it is okay making mistakes. You're not perfect and life doesn't come with a manual of instructions. Who said that you must win all the time? Who said you can't make changes in your life?By the way, mistakes are the real winds of change. Nothing teaches you more than to find that some streets are a dead end. Here, in Brazil, we say: if counsels were good, they would not...

By Rahaf H., Amman Innovation Lab I am 16 years old, I'm in school and I like designing and engineering in general. But before hearing about the innovation labs my ideas, hobbies and ambitions were different. I liked video games, and I wanted to be a nurse in the future and to enjoy working and helping others. But this did not last after I learned about the labs and participated in several courses. In the first course, we created a video game - we started by designing and then programming. A...

The Youth Speak Forum is one of the events ahead of the Youth 20 Summit that is set to take place in Argentina in August. During the su...

I think people often struggle with understanding the concept of life itself, and I don't think anyone in this world would every fully understand life's structure, because really, life is unpredictable and its structure isn't stable. The unstableness of life has the ability to put us in an apprehensive position as we may feel that there is no way to get through the obstacles we endure. However, the feeling we should feel when we encounter unstable situations is strength. Life isn't perfect, and t...

How could I, an ordinary teenager in the early stages of high school, have a voice in society? I mean, no one is willing to listen to a child with opinions on global issues. That is the job of adults, people who have experience and know what they are doing. This was my thought process before I was exposed to UNICEF. When I founded a UNICEF Club at my school, I struggled mightily to help it find its place within the competitive environment. I expected to remain as President and Founder until I gr...

Do you ever just sit still and listen? Listen to the sounds of cars whizzing down the street, or birds chirping? Have you ever woken up at night and heard nothing at all, just the sound of a world sleeping?As a teen I feel like my life is going in all sorts of directions with no place to take a break. My mind seems to be constantly on alert waiting for the next sound to come. I never seem to be able to just sit and breathe, and not worry about an upcoming test or be trying to find places to volu...
