Mauritius Island is not just about stunning beaches, the Sun, summer, beautiful sights, amazing food, delicious fruits, a rich folklore, a mix of cultures, hospitality and the “Paradise Island” that is portrayed on postal cards, describing perfect spots for tourists to spend their holidays. Since 1968, at the occasion of the Independence Day on the 12th of March, our National Anthem is heartily sung in every corner of the Island: “As one people, as one nation, in peace, j...

Many young people have been called by their older relatives “magicians” just for helping with things we do in our daily basis like recovering an email accidentally deleted or changing the font on a text. Every day we learn something new about our computers and media but we know little about the ways technology can empower us to understand, practice and raise awareness on Human Rights. It´s clear that many webpages – including social media - today ban abusive content; the...

To my knowledge, the major problems that the children of today's world are facing are malnutrition, gender inequality, child labor, child marriage, female genital mutilation, sexual crimes, war/violence, depression, lack of education, drug addiction, lack of emotional security etc. So, if I could make some wishes for children in 25 years time then I would make the following wishes: First of all, I wish that no child fetus will be aborted because of being a girl. I wish that every...

Many are cognizant of the fact that the battle for equal treatment of the sexes has still not been won. But now I ask you, is there such a thing as too much? Are we rushing to condemn every little thing as sexist in the name of being feminist? Do you believe that simply because the symbol depicts only men, it ignores women? I recently saw a news segment asking that very same question. Traffic lights have, for a s long as they have existed, used only the symbol of a man. The que...

It is hard to believe that one of the most unequal countries in the world according to the Gini index; a “poor” country where people live surrounded by an ever-lasting history of violence and huge polarization, can be called a happy country. Or to be more specific, a country where people are genuinely happy. However according to a Gallup international survey, Colombia has continually been one of the happiest countries in the world, in fact the happiest country in 2013. I wo...

On the occasion of the International day of tolerance -16th November 2014- I pondered on the importance of tolerance. Tolerance is of great value and one I feel young people should promote. Having been brought up in a household where my mother, father and grand mother all shared different religious beliefs but still despite an occasional debates we lived together in harmony. Furthermore I grew up in a country where differences in political opinions has divided the country. Differen...

I recently studied for and took the SAT, the standardized test required for admission for many US universities. This process led me to do a lot of research about standardized testing, which has made me really think- should standardized testing be required? Standardized testing aims to test a student's basic ability, predict his/her success in college, and provide a good comparison between students. The ACT and SAT are both standardized tests, and standardized tests have many term...

You may know about the situation in Ukraine. I would like to outline the main points about circumstances in the East of Ukraine and Crimea on November 5th – 12th. A violent change is being observed in the Eastern Ukraine after the November 2nd “elections in local governments” in Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic. DPR and LPR are self-proclaimed republics on the territory of Ukraine. But there is no country in the world which declared that. Large scal...
