Opened eyes, closed eyes. When I open my eyes, I can see the gender equality revolution. Suddenly it is so easy for me to succeed where men were thought to be pros, actually it is far easier for me compared to the man who has the same drive as me. I am applying for an engineering job in the same organization as my classmates who more than ¾ are men and a man with the same qualification as me may be left out because they only needed 4 people and from our class 8 boys and 2 girls ap...

Through few years now, I had some experience in helping kids with their school subjects such as English or Math as a volunteering task or simply to save some pocket money. However, this time things were slightly different. In the beginning of summer, my neighbors’ seven-year-old daughter, “Hiba”, asked me to teach her how to use her new tablet and some computer basics as well. And, I was glad to accept, so we set up a schedule for our sessions. In fact I accepted this task fo...

“All I want is an education, and I am afraid of no one.” These are the words of Malala Yousafzai, the youngest person to ever receive the Nobel Peace Prize, a front-cover feature in Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential” issue, and the author of her own bestselling novel, I Am Malala. Her shocking and nerve-wracking story – sitting with classmates on the bus after school and being shot in the head for blogging about life under the Taliban – brought about worldwide r...

Gender equality is a topic that fascinates me, and something that I believe we should all strive for and work towards. I am a proud feminist. But what I dislike is the misconceptions that come along with saying you are one. The surprised looks and the hollow single minded questions, those really bother me to be honest. I am 14 years old and I am currently in 9th grade. The other day, I don't remember precisely what I was talking about with a guy friend. At some point in the...

Today, the whole world is celebrating International Day of the Girl Child. This year’s theme is “Empowering Adolescent Girls: Ending the Cycle of Violence”. This theme reflects that of the London Summit, in which my colleague Nathan (a children’s reporter) and I participated in July, as representatives of the Congolese children. For Day of the Girl Child, we hope to focus our message on child marriage. Child marriage is unfortunately a widespread practice in our country...
