A place where the blossoms are bright A place where the land is not torn A place where my people are free A place where my children are born That is what my country should be. A land where the people are not silenced, with words like knives, or screams that pierce their heart A land where my friends and foes alike can live in harmony, A nation where my family does not live apart That is where my rights lie. A world full of love , a world ne'er strifed...

Hi! My name is Shradzy and I believe that everyone should be heard out. Firstly, (OBVIOUSLY) I think you can tell that I am the kind of person who will do a lot to achieve justice. The reason why I am writing this article is because I believe people should be heard out. Age. This thing we call 'age' is, in many ways, a global handicap. However, the only reason it is a handicap is because, we the people, make it one. Why should a child's voice be drowned out in the horde...

When I sent out the question, “What matters most to the youth in Nigeria?” I thought I already knew what the response of most young people would be. The International Youth Day (IYD) was coming up and though the theme was concerned with mental health, I considered it important to have the people affected weigh in on what really mattered to them. Moreover, I had read about the European Parliament’s IYD priority here: The article, in commemoration of IYD, highli...

This issue of abortion is one of the most discussed worldwide. In my opinion, abortion in cases of extreme health must be authorized. But for negligence and carelessness (most cases) pregnant women should let the fetus develop. After a week, the fetus is already considered a human, and like everyone, has the right to life. If the woman does not want to raise the child after birth, the mother should give the child up for adoption. Thousands of infertile couples around the world ar...

This is the second time I have posted this. I am posting it again because what I am talking about is very important to me and many other people. I don't think at the time I truly understood the importance of what was happening that day in Seneca Falls, NY. I was in 1840s dress, My Mom was portraying Elizabeth Cady Stanton, And there was a declaration to be signed. It was Convention Days 2014. I met Nadia Shahram who was leading a movement for Muslim women. After...

It's time for youth to talk about Sexual Violence. This past June, members of governments and civil society organisations joined forces at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. A delegation of youth was invited to attend and participate in summit discussions, where they were encouraged to rally the #YouthVoice on social media. The youth voice is 1.8 billion strong, so the task of representing youth at the Global Summit and rallying them by means of s...

BOOM! The building is falling, surrounded by fire. You don't know where to go, you think about your family but the whole city is on fire, and there's no saving them. No last goodbyes, No I love you's. Nothing! Just a painful, fearful death. Your kids might be wondering, "Why isn't dad here to save us?" But you are too far to even see them for the last time. And you'll think "What did I do to deserve a death like this?" I can't imagine myself in that situation, and neither can y...

There can be little doubt that female circumcision is one of the most shocking cultural practices found around the world. It contravenes women’s rights in a violent and obvious manner and is a serious threat to the health and wellbeing of millions of girls 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...
