Unless the youth work together and remain determined to do something about the unemployment crisis, it will simply remain a discussion discussed over and over. We have the potent...

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...
