To Bullies: Stop, #ENDviolence. It Won't Last Forever. There is a lot to say and so much to work on. Bullies do not heal by bullying back, shouting, or being suspended. I don't think these kind of things help at all these days. You need more powerful things. You need to reach out to their hearts, their feelings, inspire them. They should change their thinking in to another way. Maybe they should put themselves in the bullied person's situation. Most importantly, they should k...

I took an Environmental Science class last year. We learned that the general global populous of humans will not overshoot and plummet beneath its carrying capacity. Rather, we discovered that food production is not lacking and there is not a real shortage of food product in the world. If you think about it differently, you will see that this global dilemma of hunger is not a function of poor productivity or lack of resources. In the world, if we see it this way, we can assume that...

According to the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (1789) and most nations, we are all citizens. Nevertheless, many human communities have been suffering the effect of a phenomenon called “statelessness”. The statelessness is little-known in everyday life by many of us, who live in developed countries, but in five continents this injustice occurs. The statelessness means that a person does not have any nationality, he/she does not belong to any country leg...

There is no dispute today that Planet Earth is reaching a point where it can no longer sustain our intake levels. If we care about our planet, about ourselves, our children and other living things then we need to learn how to turn things around and bring about lasting transformation. Most environmental problems are global in nature, meaning, they have global ramifications. Let me explain by saying that many ecosystems that are managed by countries have vast global benefits and...

Education is our more valuable good, and for this reason, we have to safeguard it. But not only that, we have to struggle for human rights which are broken and aren’t present in a lot of lives. Malala Yousafzai is an example of improvement, willpower, vigour, effort, bravery and reality where some people and like herself live everyday. In favor of our rights, gender equality, and equitable availability of opportunities which all, as individuals, deserve and must possess, we h...

Young children are full of questions and thoughts on the world. It is normal to see a child being shut up by their elders whenever they have a question or something to say. It's actually a huge loss everytime that happens. Because, we learn from the young ones. As inexperienced as they may be, there's always a message behind what they are trying to say. I, myself, being a teenager have experienced such situations repeated times. Mostly with my parents. Yes, we, young ones are o...

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...

From going to this event I learned that Katy Perry went to Madagascar and saw these places where she thought it was wild. She saw a school in which students are inside studying and she was amazed. Also she would go to a center where she talked to women and how these women would tell her their problems. She made a song, Unconditionally, which has a connection to her visit to Madagascar. Also, looking at the video of her in Madagascar she also had fun with the people she saw especial...

On December 3, 2013, my high school, Brooklyn International, was invited to attend an event in which UNICEF’s new Goodwill Ambassador was announced. When I entered the UNICEF House, I felt so happy because inside the building there were pictures of children from around the world. Those children looked poor, like they don’t have an opportunity to get an education. I felt proud because I have the ability to advance my education. But it also made me think of those less fortunate....
