Here are some of the things I learned from school. Like how sometimes, school counsellors will ask you invasive questions, like ones regarding your sexuality, and they promise to hook you up with a conversion therapy to help you. How teachers favour some students more than others, and have no qualms assuring one of their worth while ignoring the emotional needs of the others. I learned that the peer group that’s supposed to help students with their mental health issues consisted...

There can be little doubt that female circumcision is one of the most shocking cultural practices found around the world.

It’s estimated that nearly 125 million girls and women have been subjected to this violation, and each year a further 3 million are at risk in Africa alone. Most people understand that female circumcisio...

Hi guys! I´s guessing we are aware on how the world has turned into a divergent place where injustice, war and hunger somehow have managed to coexist with better technology, and volunteering turning into a worldwide gear to enhance and improve healthcare and human rights education.

Today, as I promised a while ago, I decided to write to you on the educational system in my country, Romania.

I hope you will find it interesting and that it will help you have an insight on an educational system, similar or not to the one in your country. Firstly, you should know that education in Romania is based on a tuition-free system. There are 11 mandatory years...

I usually hear that people read less than in the past. Should we accuse them of this? On the one hand I agree. Technologies alter paper books. There is also the other side of an issue.
