During my freshman year in high school, I wrote a research paper about the importance of social media in the Arab Spring.

Last spring, I saw a documentary entitled Blood Brother, at Sundance London, about an American who ventured to India and spent his time at an orphanage for children with HIV/AIDS. The movie conveyed, using a beautiful personal tale and s...

I have seen people who are suffering from skin cancer. It can be caused when the skin is exposed to intensive high temperature, which is global warming. This caused a great impact on my life because cancer claims a lot of lives day by day. It has also built interest in me to be one of the people in the world who...

The kids with whom we play with and the activities that we do, shape our experiences and the stories that we tell each other as adults.

Social networking sites haven’t been around for too long but their popularity among kids and young adults is strong. When I was younger, I remember grownups informing me and other kids of the dangers in social networks and what dire consequences it could have if you left too much information about yourself online.
