Anu, 24, Nigeria
I’m AnuOluwapo Adelakun and I love to write; I really do. I am a
Gender advocate, youth leader and development practitioner
changing my world one community project after another.
Aurna, 18, Bangladesh
My name is Sadia Akhter Aurna. I have been born and raised in
Dhaka, Bangladesh. Currently I am applying for my undergrad
studies and doing things I love to do. Being a person who
believes in equality and justice I have founded Daak which is an
NGO that aims to give legal aid to the victims of sexual abuse
and create social awareness about this issue. I try to improve
myself everyday to become the best version of myself to be in the
best use for our world.
Banni, 18, Indonesia
Banni's here! If you ever wonder how to pronounce my name, just
think of an Easter Bunny. INFJ for 18 years, currently studying
German. I love cats and ice cream, despite the fact that my
digestive system is intolerant to lactose and cat furs make me
sneeze. As a procrastinator, my motto would be "I love my bed so
much, I'd put a ring on it."
Enana, 20, Syria
20 year-old Syrian refugee in Germany. Member of a minority group
called the Assyrians. I aspire to become an activist to raise the
voice of the voiceless. Issues of minorities, women’s rights and
gender equality are my primary concerns.
Hannah, 17, Belgium
Currently a high school student but with my head I’m already in
university. Guess that already points out a major thing about me
- I’m the kind of person who’s always dreaming. Living in the
present, while dreaming of the future. What I love most is
learning about the structures of the complicated mechanism called
the world and about its inhabitants. Even more, I want to improve
Harsh, 21, Nepal
My name is Harsh Mahaseth and I am a Nepalese citizen currently
pursuing my bachelor’s degree in law from the National Academy of
Legal Studies and Research, Hyderabad. I was born in Manchester,
United Kingdom and at the age of 5 my family returned to
Kathmandu, Nepal. Apart from my interests in law and public
policy I enjoy playing basketball, writing poetry and watching
anime. There are always more than two sides of an issue and I
believe that my analysis can help bring nuance and depth to
important and relevant issues.
Maria, 19, Colombia
My name is Maria and I am in love with the country I was raised
in, Colombia. I love photography and I hope to dedicate my life
to it at some point. Writing is how I express myself and I am
trying to put my thoughts out there, in the real world. Aside
from that, I love traveling and hope I'll never stop doing it. I
like music but I am a terrible singer. I hate cold weather. My
favorite book is the Blue Between the Sky and Water. I am
majoring in Political Science and as many of us, I believe that
my purpose in life is to make a change, somehow.
Mwaniki, 19, Kenya
I am Mwaniki Nyaga. Nineteen-year-old, although in the course of
the internship I will be turning twenty. I am currently a
Computer Science student at the University of Nairobi, in Kenya.
I write to paint pictures in reader’s minds and pull out
questions from within themselves.
Shorouq, 20, Egypt
An Egyptian 20-year-old female whose words happened to be good to
her. I adjust my eyes to see the beauty in the world, and I put
that into words. Writing has taught me, changed me and helped me
all along the way. Along with studying biological science and how
real and intense it can sometimes get, I create that world of
mine using only a pen and a bunch of papers."
Yaz, 21, Turkey
I am a college student studying International Relations at Koç
University in my hometown Istanbul. I believe that the world can
be a better place once we all start thinking and acting on it. I
plan to act on it through my writing and I hope everyone finds
their own way to join the venture.
