“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...

Youth leadership is a remarkably important part of the youth development process. In a world which has a plethora of challenges, as the young generation, we have to equip ourselves with leadership capacity to face those challenges in our community, or even in our country.

Last month, I met David Nelson Bassey who is an author of “The New Generation of Leadership”, and also...

I want to dedicate this article for Nelson Mandela, a true leader that has inspired me in so many ways. On July, 18, 1918. A baby boy named Rolihlahla Mandela was born in Mvezo, a tiny village in the Transkei, a former British protectorate in South Africa. He then recalls growing up in the small village of Qunu. You may find “Rohilahla Mandela” unfamiliar, but yeah, I’m talking about Nelson Mandela, a statesman whose life and death inspire millions of people around the wo...

Everyday, in more than 30 conflicts worldwide, from Sierra Lione, Congo, Sudan, Afghanistan, Burma, and etc, more than 300.000 child soldiers (both boys and girls) are witnessing and undergo a very horrible situation, which is war. They have to face brutality within their own pair of eyes that will hurt them emotionally and brings a huge threat to their existence. They're just children or teenagers like us, but they have to experience a very different stories than the rest of us. When we usually...

"Sometimes it's so hard to see things when you're so close" Have you ever been in a stage in your life when you feel that a lot of things are wrong? Or everything that's you've worked for years, things that you've been dreaming for so long seem useless because you fail and your dreams seem so far away? Have you ever felt so small and it's remarkably hard to believe in yourself and the only things that keeps bugging in your head is how much of a failure you are? I think all of us ever felt that...

They say that we as human being have a right to be free from any form of slavery, abuses, violence and fear. They say that those rights are our fundamental rights as human and we should be respected equally no matter how rich or how poor and it's protected by The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. They also stated that children need to be protected because they are vulnerable and children are not supposed to work in a horrible environment or even worse become sex slave for adults. But do...

London Olympics have ended, but the spirit that it brought to the whole world is still alive. This morning I read an article about Joanna Rowsell, a cyclist from Great Britain who won a Gold medal. She chose to ascend the Olympic podium to receive her gold medal without her wig even though she is almost totally bald (she has suffered from alopecia for 13 years which made her having a hard time dealing with her life before). She looked very happy and proud of what she achieved. Joan...
