The American government has shut down. After this past week's events and our bicameral legislature falling apart, American civilians are looking for a shining light ahead.

I am all for democracy, I mean I am perhaps the biggest advocate for democracy out there. Although...

October 11th is the Day of the Girl. Time for the girls declare what they want, to tell the world about the girls’ rights and to prove that they are able to do whatever they want in a good way and care. On that day, all the girls are expecting justice and happiness. Just like Ramonah 8 years old, a street singer. At that time, during the day in the South Jakarta. I was on the way to return home. On the bus, I saw a girl singing to entertain the passengers and find money. Because...

In respect to the celebrations of girl education, I wish to inspire and empower the youth to fight for their right of education. In Kenya...well Africa as a whole, one is nothing without education. As a girl, I have been hit with a storm of frustration through all my years in school. However, despite all the hardships, I still struggle to earn the most powerful tool I will ever know, EDUCATION. "Real glory isn't about a smooth ride to the top. It's about picking yourself up whe...
