Generally, our world nowadays is very much accessible and attainable to all kinds of information, it could be viewed as a huge website, a social platform that connects people together from different cultures, different worlds, with divergent point of views and thoughts to new ideas.

If I had just one wish from Genie, I'd give it to the whole world. You know, sometimes I just do not understand what am I doing here. I do not understand why people are so cruel. I do not understand why people are fighting with each other. I do not understand why children are abandoned. I do not understand why animals and people are being killed. I do not understand why gays and lesbians do not have rights, why they are not considered as human beings. I do not understand why pe...

Human rights “are rights inherent to all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, language, or any other status.” Human Rights are universal and inalienable. Human rights are equal and non-discriminatory. In simple terms… they belong to everyone regardless of who they are; no one can be deprived of them. As believers of inclusivity, equality, and justice we must stand for ALL human rights and not just the...

This world, this place we call home, where we’re supposedly free to roam is a messed up place where richness and race decides your place in society. It’s a place where the brand of your clothes are what makes you friends, where, when your phone’s battery life ends you become a lesser person. It’s where society revolves around celebrities and where lasting friendship is only a distant memory. This is what we’ve come to call the norm, where we are expected to conform and re...
