“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” –Plato Youth and music is two inseparable things. We can find music basically everywhere in our daily life and we can see that very often music is used as a tool to engineer change in our community. And throughout history, music has been a vehicle for enacting change in the world. “If we can make music for a good cause and shine a light to people around us, why not...

Even if I'm a permanent resident of Hong Kong or even if I can still be considered as a Hong Konger by some people because I was born it, it still doesn't feel right to call this city "My Home." Like many of my fellow ethnic minorities, we are still stuck under that label. We are still part of the minority. For many, we should be thankful because we are given some "privileges" and get to enjoy the same rights as local residents. But my point in the matter is, being an EM student...

The ongoing violence in Syria not only affected over 5 million children but also forced millions of them out of school. The aid provided by the international community is not enough to help or back up these vulnerable children and their families. Many of them may suffer life long trauma- either physically or mentally. Providing temporary shelter, food and water is never going to save them from the harsh hot weather nor from the cold winter nights. Moreover, female children are at a...

If you had to leave your house in a hurry what would you take with you? For two young girls from Homs, the answer was easy.

The two sisters had been attending school in their village, where they received support from UNICEF. When their family decided to flee the fighting and re-locate to Jordan they didn’t want to leave without their supplies. The girls, their...

If we can't stop the war, then maybe we can change a heart, and help those who need our aid. The world today has carved us into divine beings prone to the alteration of the universe. Nonetheless, we have been condemned by nature and at the same course raised to a unique base by its prowess. In all, we have seen a difference in life, scope and justification. Nature has almost shut the doors to those suffering from the war. Now they are scattered abroad, like ants when splashed with water. What we...
