Hey everyone! It is always a joy to share with you people what I think, feel, create... And of course It is always a greater joy to read the amazing blogs you write and the comments you post. But today I want to share with you a treasure I have discovered while randomly talking to my friend Jessica about blogs. For me, Jessica is this awesome person who I've become friends with in a short time and who has always supported me through my journey of human rights with her. Jessica di...


Yesterday I was in a meeting with the amazing women of "Woman and Family Department" of our City Council. We were discussing about what kind of a program to organize for Woman's Day. And we had an idea to draw attention to what women can achieve, by reenacting the women who stood up against oppression. To set an example, we thought It would be better if these women were from our country, molded by the culture we live in, and defeated the obstacles woman face. This is a post abo...

"We have far more in common with each other than things that divide us." These were the words of Jo Cox, British politician who lost her life this last summer. I didn't know much about her before her death; but I wish I had. I remember watching the news about her death and I was shocked about myself not knowing this woman. I remember feeling very inspired hearing this quote, I remember it meaning a lot to me that a politician defending unity especially in the time of a migrat...

This is the story of a heartbreak. My heartbreak, our heartbreak. Next week I am going to attend a camp on human rights which the medical association that I work with organizes. It's going to be a camp about gender equality and I'm taking a few promising and motivated freshmen with me. Everything was going fine, we were motivated and excited, and we were talking about the preparations and how the camp would go... Then I received a text from one of the attendees. She was asking...

I really don't know how to start. I could say how angry, how heartbroken, how frustrated I am; but what is the use? I don't mean to bring you down, I just want to share what I think, as always. When it's the breach of something new, we always expect things to change. We wish for things to be better, over the change of the concepts created by us. A new age, a new school year, a new year... We celebrate these, thinking that when the new 'something' comes, things will be different...

Access to healthcare is a basic human right. In other words "right to health" is a right; mentioned, guarantied and protected by The Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 25: Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or o...

A few days ago, I gave a presentation about world hunger. It was a presentation I gave to my friends in the faculty. I basically mentioned the things I mentioned in my previous blog here in VoY. So while preparing my presentation, I did a little research about how hunger and the right to access food was mentioned in the documents about human rights. Besides the mentioning of access to food in the 25th segment of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, I came across something...

Hello everyone! 16th of October is World Food Day, which is a day where people from all over the world show their commitment to act towards ending world hunger. And I decided to prepare a presentation for the people in my faculty about world hunger in order to inform them about the subject. Now, I have always considered hunger as an important issue (I mean who wouldn't?) But I have never realized how much there is about hunger that we don't know. In this article I want to share...
