What is happening in the world? A poet once said "my mother has got syphilis, but I still love her". The world is broken. And I still love her. I don't know why, perhaps because I still hear babies crying, birds singing, still see someone sliming to me without any reason. Every day, I try to find some light, and I always do find it. But deep in my heart, I know I want to find the sun. Light brings me a little hope, but the sun, it marks the beginning of a hopeful era....

"Have you seen my Childhood? I'm searching for that wonder in my youth Like pirates in adventurous dreams, Of conquest and kings on the throne..." Childhood - Michael Jackson I see that most of the writers here are between the ages of 18 to 23. I guess we have (almost) the same childhood stuff in common, like the same hero, favorite movies, and others. We loved to play hide-and-seek and other "traditional" games. However, I am sad to discover that most children nowaday...

How Can we as Future Leaders from around the world make an impact? In the lives of others, war affects youth. I know this because in my own country of Liberia, we are a post war country. We need, especially youth, to be able to create an environment where war affected youth can be a part of this network for change. Many youth are getting involved in violence, drug addiction, and worst of all our young girls and becoming women prostitutes. Thank you. You are welcome to share y...

“Giving birth to a child while myself being a child was the most painful experience of my life,” said Rubina, a woman from Pakistan who had been married at 12 years old. She was interviewed by the team of Girls Not Brides – The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage, on this website (http://www.girlsnotbrides.org/girls-voices/rubinas-story-pakistan/). Before we get to the causes and the impact of child marriage, I think we should learn about the meaning. Child marriage, a...

It’s been a week since the last article I posted on Voices of Youth. In this post, I guess I will not talk about political or educational problems. I will not elaborate how climate change affects people in so many ways. This time, I would like to talk about heart and the self- about how to handle a big down, the low phase that will be experienced by every person in this world. I love to write and sing. I guess by writing and singing, I can help people. At least I can help them...

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...

There is no denying the fact that there is poverty in the world. It is an inevitable fact that people around the world must suffer because they have no money to sufficiently live on. Children in some places like Bangladesh have to go to work because they are the primary breadwinner in there family. Their parents don't even earn enough in order to maintain a family. The simple solution is to not let poverty define us. We must not tell ourselves that because we are poor that we wil...

So, my last post was actually about hearing the young one's speak. This article has a lot to do with it actually. Charice Pempengo, is not a stranger to us. A was a young girl from humble beginnings and had a lot of talent. She had a beautiful voice and sang in the likes of Celine Deon, one of her greatest idols. She didn't have a good childhood. I'm quite certain she was waiting for her chance to be heard. When her voice was heard by David Foster alongside with Oprah Winfrey, he...

There are nearly 7.2 billion people on our planet. Isn't that shocking? As it is, I think most of us Generation Y's are feeling that we are running out of space. For what? I'm not exactly sure. In fact, space is no longer the issue. Rather, it is affordable, efficient and available health care. The international program, Doctors Without Borders, also known by its French name Médecins Sans Frontieres (pardon the lack of accent grave for any French readers), caught my eye in this re...
