Imagine: you're sitting in first period when you realize that you really have to pee. Your teacher lets you out with a stern glance and a sharp "be back in five minutes." You walk down the hallway to the bathrooms and are faced with a dilemma: the signs depict a male bathroom and a female bathroom, but you know that you are neither truly male nor female, you are more of a mystical creature, undefined by the strict laws of gender put in place by society. Choosing randomly, you rush...

Employment is an essential topic in public policy because for many a job is much more than a salary. It´s the path to acquire what´s needed to break social restrictions and to raise generations of professionals who give back to their country (and the world) with the product of their investigation, entrepreneurship and functionality. These restrictions are often overcome through the social mobility built upon education and employment, that´s the reason why parents don’t hes...

Eduacation. I am one of those people who believes that education of the youth is the key to everything. I could even go as far a saying that it is they key to world peace.Stimulating the minds of young people is one of the most important things a parent can do for their young kids. I've seen it myself watching my younger cousin and nieces growing up and it's something that is incredible to watch. I don't think that education should be considered a luxury and that it is a birth righ...

With the international tensions that are going on these days, I feel the need to write this article. These days, I feel like people pay more attention to politics a little more than culture. People pay more attention to any governments' bad actions, thinking that it reflects people's beliefs. People believe stereotypes, making them judge others based off of these. People tend to be ethnocentric out of nature, forgetting that their ethnocentrism can be a little offensive at times. This obviousl...

After a very long time, I finally have a post to write! Forgive me this post will be personal but it is something I have waited to share :) For the past few months I have been planning something I have always wanted (probably just as much as going to university!). I have always wanted to visit ‘home’. But before I go on, it would be appropriate for me to share with you that I am half Nigerian. After many years of wishing to go to Nigeria, this past month it finally ca...


The Dual Narrative is a form of narrative that describes a story in two different perspectives, usually two different people. It is used to show parallels or emphasize differences in the experiences or points-of-view of different places and time periods. Why does a writer choose to use a dual narrative? Usually it is to show parallels between the two storylines (and time periods) and to enrich the reading experience with alternate points-of-view. In this essay I want to di...

As a young person I see it as my responsibility to ensure that children and the youth are educated. Education is power as it is said, and it is a right of every child. My view, however, is that there is still a gap yet to be covered in education systems currently in place in many nations. I can point to the system here in Zimbabwe. The system is more focused on academically inclined children yet not all children are academically gifted and not all students will end up in universities and colleg...

The amount of people who daily learn and practice different languages through youtube; of those who meet in chat rooms and end up become great friends after talking on skype; plus the growing worldwide communities through which it is possible to meet people, buy products, volunteer, practice or learn new skills, discuss, raise awareness and understand new issues is outrageous. I have to say I´m really impressed by the way one can carry so many books on a little kindle and how...

For my first entry, I would like to put in, something that is related to my choice of profession and something that is dear to me. I am Joy Macalla, a fourth year Elementary Education major. Since I am now in my fourth year, I am already taking up practice teaching, therefore I am now a student teacher. In my country, problems in education are very rampant especially in public schools in the rural areas. From the distance to the resources, there is a problem. But, there is always h...
