The American government has shut down. After this past week's events and our bicameral legislature falling apart, American civilians are looking for a shining light ahead. In 1776, our founding fathers drafted a constitution to create a representative democracy. In this sense, Americans have had rights and regulations around them for centuries, it's part of this democratic culture. I am all for democracy, I mean I am perhaps the biggest advocate for democracy out there. Although...

Taking Care of the Environment The Current population of the United States is 311 million people. Consequently, the current world population is at 7 billion and counting. We’ve been hearing a lot about the car industry and the President’s affairs with GM but we should stop to think about the bigger picture for a moment---cars are just a single part of a much larger Earth. This Earth, one that we take for granted every day, has provided us with the necessities of life for ne...

Bling vs. Bang “In America it is bling bling, in Africa it is bling bang “I borrowed this expression from a movie named “the blood diamond” to start writing this article. In the United States the duty of every respectful loving man is to put a pretty ring with a big white shiny rock on his beloved’s finger, well I’m not saying that it is banned or shameful, as they say “diamond is the woman’s best friend”, it turned out that this is not true after watching this movie and readin...

I got a chance to interview the global executive talent consultant, World Business Forum speaker and prestigious Egon Zehnder executive Claudio Fernandez-Araoz the other day. We discussed several things, but perhaps the most important dealt with leadership, ethics and morals in a world that is forgetting the importance of holding the door open for someone. Although I understand this doesn't have direct relations to other posts that I've put up or some of the ones you guys put up, I...

Hola people, This is the first time I am writing for this and I wanted to write about mental disorders which are affecting kids nowadays. Each and every a child born is special, which includes children born with any complication or disorder. Everyone has a right to have a proper childhood. If you know what I mean, like proper studies and healthcare. Put all that aside and what a child really needs is love to grow and be healthy. This is where parents come and play their part. B...

On December 3, 2013, my classmates from The Brooklyn International High School, and I attended an event at UNICEF House to announce UNICEF’s new Goodwill Ambassador. It was such an amazing experience that I feel that I have met not just a person, but an idol. In fact she is one of my personal idols and the idols of millions of people. The best moment of the day was when I saw her new music video for the song, Unconditionally, and how it is relevant to UNICEF’s work. Of course,...
