Failing is a very valuable and beautiful experience. It is the hidden hero who makes us who we are, it is our friend. It teaches us, it makes us more powerful, it makes us braver; and if you learn to love it, it makes you unstoppable. Despite this, we are always afraid of it, we always try to avoid it or hide it away. For example in a movie, all the failures and the process is crammed into a 20 second montage; but the glory and success is overly shown. As if life was all about the punch line. Bu...

I almost couldn't find anything to say, because we are in a place where it feels like there is nothing one can say. It feels like we are almost at the end of our humanity.But I have to say something, we have to say something. Being human is all we have, and we cannot let it end. We cannot let it die.So here it goes...On 4th April 2017, the Syrian City of Idlib was targeted by a 'chemical attack', 58 people were killed according to BBC. Later the number was given as "more than 80", according to A...

If there is one thing more frustrating about gender inequality other than inequality itself, It is to make others understand the existence of gender inequality in our lives. Most people or organizations are familiar with the concept; but no one sees how they contribute to it. Because It is so embedded in our cultures we don't see it as gender inequality. And in this situation a person like me, someone who is aware of the inequalities in her life and draws attention to them, is ofte...

I'm not wealthy. I'm not in a powerful position. I don't have that much muscle power. My demographic background doesn't give me much advantage. My gender and sexual orientation aren't much respected either. I have friends (very good ones), but I can't always reach them when I need. I spend my life defending the things people are either afraid of or don't care to defend. I am open, I am vulnerable, I am sad. But among all, I have one power. No matter how torn a...

LGBTI Rights is a topic I was rather passionate about since I was 10. At that age, I remember watching a movie on TV about a teacher losing his job after it was discovered that he was gay. It was the first time I had heard about being gay and it was the first time I saw that there was an issue with this. I didn't understand why a person had to lose his job because he liked the people of the same gender as him; but, from that moment, I understood it was wrong (him losing his job I m...

There are many ways to be successful in life, but for me the key to success in life is to do what you want and to do it with the right people. Do the things you are passionate about and want to make an impact on with the people who encourage, appreciate, and love you. Be in a place where you can just "be". Today I'm sharing my story on getting to chance to do what I love, the story of me attending the 66th IFMSA General Assembly as a Support Person for Human Rights and Peace and ge...

We all have our worries, don't we? We are afraid of losing, we are afraid of not being able to find the stuff we have today, tomorrow. We worry about our life standards. Some of us worry whether we will be able to live in a bigger house in five years’ time. Some worry whether they'll be able to make it to the end of the month, some worry if they will find a job or not. How many of us worry about being able find something to eat? How many of us worry that we might not have any foo...
