Like many other youth around the world, my role model is Nobel Peace Prize winner and 17-year-old schoolgirl, Malala Yousafzai. In Hong Kong, it is easy to take education for granted. Yet Malala, a girl who simply wanted to go to school, was attacked and seriously injured for doing just that. But her difficulties, her adversaries and her youth have not deterred or dissuaded her; instead, they have driven her to courageously speak out for her passion- education. As an advocate...

For centuries people have moved across the globe to pursue their dreams or just looking for a slightly better life through tourism or indefinite residence, and even though the trip sometimes might be uncomfortable, people find their expectations crushed or face discrimination, migration continues. This takes place not only as a national, regional and transcontinental phenomenon but with its own divergent characteristics. That way migration flows have changed involving for ex. a lar...

I bet you already think I’m a hopeless romantic, but I’m not. Quite the opposite. And in spite of that I managed to discover profound, delicate and still present morality problems in this series which confront criticism of being just a soap opera. To begin with, I think you ought to know some things about it. Downton Abbey is a TV series set in Britain and the action takes place between the years 1910-1930. It is centered round a huge house in Britain, one belonging to a lord...

“You can’t prohibit young people from searching for the truth, and when they found out that you lied to them, it’s not going to be neither a nice nor a good situation”. I believe this applies pretty well on Arab youth. We live under some circumstances and some life conditions that prohibit us from asking question either because it’s wrong to ask questions or because we are still young and we don’t have the right to know about certain things! It seems like a tough situ...

"The duty of youth is to challenge corruption." - Kurt Cobain. Corruption: is it a challenge or an obstacle? Or maybe it's an indication that something is wrong? In fact, corruption was the main cause for which the Tunisian revolution started back in 17th of December 2010. It’s been 4 years now since Bouazizi burnt himself alive in a front of the municipality as an act of despair yet rebellion against a regime that used to enhanced poverty and unemployment among people....

The HIV and AIDS awareness day was a while ago (December 1st) .A few weeks ago I watched a video from one of my role models Troye Sivan. In this video he talked about HIV and AIDS, and the importance of being informed about it. He said that some days ago he had watched a movie called The Normal Heart, it was about HIV and AIDS. He gave a brief description of the events in the movie that lead him to come to the sudden realization that him, a 19 year old gay man, who has had a ‘’...

Movie Review: “50/50” “50/50”, inspired by the true story of its screenplay writer Will Reiser, is a story about approaching sickness with the greatest treatment- friendship. Adam, played by Joseph Gordon Levitt, is diagnosed with cancer at the young age of 27. His odds of survival (as the title suggests) are 50/50. Unlike many movies, Adam doesn’t try to discover the meaning of life when he is faced with cancer. When the doctor delivers the saddening news, he reacts...

I remember reading a little about Lawrence Afere and thinking how useful it will be to share his story to inspire young people to explore agriculture like they have done technology. After many weeks of trying to make contact and waiting, I finally have brought you these insightful words. Your name: Afere Alaba Lawrence Your age: 31 Where are you originally from and where do you currently live? I am from Akure, Ondo state, Nigeria, and I currently live there....

There was a time when I dreamed of a future where I would find myself a decent job, and I used to tell myself that education could get me there. I pushed myself to get the best out of the public education system in this country, and although I failed, I still had options. I wanted to get my qualifications right, so that I could get employed, and I’m pretty sure that most of you can relate to this same thought process - after being assured by our parents over and over again in our...
