Growing up, I was very close with all of the other kids in my apartment, and we all hung out together immediately after school until it was time to go to bed. I was the o...

I chose this topic 'Climate Change' under the theme 'Environment' because the world today is affected by flood and global warming which are the results of climate change. I have seen people who are suffering from skin cancer. It can be caused when the skin is exposed to intensive high temperature, which is global warming. This caused a great impact on my life because cancer claims a lot of lives day by day. It has also built interest in me to be one of the people in the world who...

Last spring, I saw a documentary entitled Blood Brother, at Sundance London, about an American who ventured to India and spent his time at an orphanage for children with HIV/AIDS. The movie conveyed, using a beautiful personal tale and s...
