Namasté everyone. :) It’s 4:13 and instead of sleeping after taking my soothing gel for stomach burns, I’m delighted to finally write, complete and publish my first article as a selected and happy Blogging Intern at UNICEF Voices of Youth 2014. First of all, I apologize for my late start but I had some health issues and I wasn’t in good shape enough to get started and share my energies with you – the share of good and healthy vibes is important to me! I am a Mauritian,...

The International Aids Conference AIDS2014 has come and gone, but we have learnt from this conference is something we all should individually define in our own ways. For many this conference was the one for the youth, and for others it was the one we finally have a clear roadmap to ending Aids. But for young MSMs*, transgenders and adolescent MSMs it was the one where our issues weren't that important for discussion. During this conference there were several panels of discuss...

Hello guys! I´d like to talk about something that’s been concerning to me very deeply ever since I came to Chile. A couple of months ago I was at the PDI office (sort of a police investigation device) looking for a personal document, and there was a woman, Colombian by the way (I could tell because by her accent), and when I first arrived she was already having a discussion with someone while holding a baby, but I didn’t even came close to her. However at a certain mo...

Calling all budding young filmmakers! What do Child Rights mean to you? Tell us in a 60 second video! As the 25th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child approaches in November 2014, we want to hear from you. From declining infant mortality to rising school enrollment, more children are realizing their basic rights. But this historic milestone must also serve as an urgent reminder that there’s still a long road ahead. Too many children still don’t enjo...

TOURISM My most interesting topic was absolutely tourism. It was the topic I enjoyed and caught my attention. One may ask what is tourism? Well tourism is any activity that involves the movement of people away from their homes to other places of interest for leisure, pleasure or studies. The commonly visited areas as such are wild life conservation areas, historical sites, museums and beaches, just to mention a few. What made me interested in this topic? First and foremos...

"'It is not enough to tell people that FGM is illegal,' says FGM victim-turned-activist Gladys Kiranto. Changing laws is essential, but as FGM is often a deeply embedded cultural tradition in communities, large-scale education about why it is harmful is needed to effect major social change."

When we hear about organizations working towards a change for the better, we think that we cannot do anything to help because we lack the money, time, resources, or power to do anything significant. However, I have realized that simply being aware of these issues and being able to communicate to others about them makes all the difference, especially with the prevalent use of social media. This is exactly how I felt after coming across girleffect.org, a website dedicated to providin...

In my country Nigeria, there is a post-university national service requirement. During my national service at North-Central Nigeria, I worked at a secondary school (high school) with almost no basic facilities. The school had only one typewriter and two shelves (supposed to be a library) with outdated brown paper books. Over a few months with my students, I came to understand the poor quality of teaching they had been exposed to, learnt to value their learning deeply, and resolved...

Language is the lifeblood of politics, political power struggles, and the legitimization of political policies and authorities occurs primarily through discourse and verbal representations. Political language, Barsamian (1992:7) points out that “The Language of Politics conveys both the linguistic meaning of what is said and the corpus, or a part of it, of the political beliefs underpinning any given statement. Largely unable, and hopefully unwilling, to coerce; political authori...
