First up is Rosh (19). He emigrated from Iraq in 2003 with his family and has tried hard to keep his spirit and identity.

We asked her to think more about it fro...

Would you be "Safe and Sound" if an earthquake hit your classroom? Jelena, a 15 year 15 -year-old girl from Dobrota with Down Syndrome, shows us in her OneMinutesJr. how she remains "Safe and Sound" during an earthquake. Click on this link here (http://bit.ly/17xfekU) to watch what she does. Do you have a disaster preparedness plan? If so, after Jelena's action packed one minute clip, what could you do better?

"Looking Ahead" by Andrei Gasnash, 15, Ukraine. A young man rejects temptations by moving forward. http://youtu.be/jnL6sLLR5LA From now on, Voices of Youth will share with you a OneMinutesJr. video every week. What are OneMinutesJr. you ask me? They are sixty-second videos made by young people (between the ages of 12 and 20) from all over the world. Time may be limited in a One Minutes Jr video, but not the freedom to express oneself creatively, which is the basic right...
