Hi you guys!! A lot of things are going on currently in Chile, such as political and economic reforms, and the Independence party held for pretty much the entire week. Finally it seems like the temperature is getting warmer and life goes on regularly for this beautiful country and its people. But one piece news has caught my eye and I want to share my thoughts on it with you. Chile has an agency that collaborates with the executive branch on designing, planning, coordinat...

Each one of us loves his country. Personally, I have no problem in sacrificing my life for the good of my country, it's such an honor to me! I am sure that we all hate to see our countries suffering and we always wish that we could do something to help our nation; actually, I have no doubts at all that it's our duty and our responsibility to preserve the future of our country! I think the thing that makes me sad is seeing my motherland suffering. It's an awful feeling and I hope...

As I have mentioned in a previous post (http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/posts/the-terrorist-s-daughter---2) I have been quite fond of reading from the very early days of my life. As a kid, I would often find a book, lay down on the floor and make myself comfortable, and I could go on like this for hours. Until I was about 10 years old, my English was quite bad and I read only the Sinhala books I could get my hands on. Things changed when I found two excellent English teachers in the...


Bonjour! :) I have been quite busy physically, morally and psychologically with numerous events occurring in my life lately. I have read, witnessed, realised, wondered, thought, learnt and done a lot. I realise that my life is, indeed, a wealthy one in its own way and I give thanks for everything Life gives to me. Furthermore, what is going on in my country really strikes me and I feel it’s time to start speaking up. As my piece got too lengthy, I decided to write it into two par...

This week, I had the pleasure of interviewing my friend, Mei Lee, for my Inspire! profile. The passion she shows for her work and her endless drive to attain her goals has always been one of the reasons I was attracted to her as a person, and I admire the consistent expressions of these traits until today. Some of her notable projects include recent work for The Kitchen Guardian and Green August which ended up being sold on DFTBA. Your name Mei Lee. Your age23 Where a...

Certain coincidences changed the life of Lucia Lantero. Lucia is a young Spanish woman. She met a French boy who told her he was going to Haiti to help the people after the earthquake with his knowledge of food conservation. She remembered what she had seen in the TV about the earthquake and decided to join him for 3 months. It's heartbreaking how she tells what she felt when she met Haitian children living in the street of the Dominican Republic with no families at all. Sh...

I recently watched a very interesting documentary film by the producer of An Inconvenient Truth called Fed Up that seeks to highlight the obesity epidemic in the US and the problems related to processed foods and their sugar quantity. Several important lessons can be learned from the documentary including but not limited to "all calories are not created equal", "calories in does not equal calories out" and "congress says pizza, french fries and tomato paste are all vegetables"....
