These days with technology, many people come quick to criticize the use of social media, saying that it provokes social pressure to fit in. Many also argue that social media distracts people from being productive, resulting to a less productive generation. While these problems do exist within our generation, it is important to note that they aren't always present 100% of the time. In fact, social media is the cause to good things too. Take the Egyptian Revolution as an example. Egypt back at 20...

Benjamin Franklin once said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." With the expense of colleges on the rise, Ben Franklin indicates the advantages of paying those costs. We invest so much time and effort into expanding our knowledge, and in the end we will receive the greatest reward; greater than any dollar amount can amount to. Education can be linked to many aspects in life such as health, the world, respect and safety. Education and the world is a strong conn...

I think we all have thought about how it would be if you were the President of your country. Every time it came to my mind, I told myself instantly “What a great deal of work would that be … “. Maybe it is not the attitude you expected, but think a little bit: there are a lot of responsibilities you have to take on and I think very few people are able to manage them with success. But, what if I woke up this morning and I was the president of Romania? I’m going to ignore the...

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...
