Do you volunteer or do community work? How do you contribute to your community? A good way to help out is volunteering. Volunteering is amazing whether it's at an animal shelter or at an elderly home. The thing about volunteering is that you have to do it from your heart, why be a poser and pretend to care? When you help out whether it's just smiling at an elder or petting a dog you are helping out in the world. You may be thinking, but why should I volunteer...

Namasté everyone. :) It’s 4:13 and instead of sleeping after taking my soothing gel for stomach burns, I’m delighted to finally write, complete and publish my first article as a selected and happy Blogging Intern at UNICEF Voices of Youth 2014. First of all, I apologize for my late start but I had some health issues and I wasn’t in good shape enough to get started and share my energies with you – the share of good and healthy vibes is important to me! I am a Mauritian,...

I've asked many people what being human means. I've asked young,old,teens 98% of them don't share the same definition as me. So, what is being human to me? Being human I believe, is not being only flesh and bones. See for me being human consists of many things. One of them being sensible. Being sensible of others pain, being sensible to problems. Being aware. Being aware for me is knowing what is happening in the world, is caring about what's going on, being aware is knowi...

Hello guys! I´d like to talk about something that’s been concerning to me very deeply ever since I came to Chile. A couple of months ago I was at the PDI office (sort of a police investigation device) looking for a personal document, and there was a woman, Colombian by the way (I could tell because by her accent), and when I first arrived she was already having a discussion with someone while holding a baby, but I didn’t even came close to her. However at a certain mo...

Even if I'm a permanent resident of Hong Kong or even if I can still be considered as a Hong Konger by some people because I was born it, it still doesn't feel right to call this city "My Home." Like many of my fellow ethnic minorities, we are still stuck under that label. We are still part of the minority. For many, we should be thankful because we are given some "privileges" and get to enjoy the same rights as local residents. But my point in the matter is, being an EM student...

I don't think at the time I truly understood the importance of what was happening that day in Seneca Falls, NY. I was in 1840s dress, My Mom was portraying Elizabeth Cady Stanton, And there was a declaration to be signed. It was Convention Days 2014. I met Nadia Shahram who was leading a movement for Muslim women. After my Mom (as Elizabeth Cady Stanton) read the Declaration of Sentiments, Nadia and the other leaders of her group read the Declaration of Equalities. It was pow...

We have come a long way in many aspects, technology, medicine, architecture, biodiversity etc. Something that has not changed is the lack of toleration. This generation is "more open minded" than the ones before. That's partly true, see this generation is extremely diverse, and with that diversity many ways of thinking appear. Many times those ways of thinking clash. That leads to conflict and disagreement. This generation has been in a way forced to grow up before time, se...
