The question that makes me most uncomfortable is: What is your permanent address? For people who have called two completely different countries home I struggle to answer this question. I usually then ask when will you be posting this item so I can equate to my location at the time. The word permanent itself suggest forever and as an international citizen, I struggle to see me in one place permanently - my passport will tell the tale. It is difficult to explain how I so easily...

*Close your eyes* Picture yourself flying over the Indian Ocean and you look down below and all you see is crystal blue waters and waves crashing. You take a look closer and see birds flying near the surface and dipping into the water occasionally. You dive into the water, 10 metres, 20 metres, 30 metres (just don’t hold your breath) and there with you are beautiful corals and fish. Be careful not to damage anything. It takes a long time for it to return the way it was. The S...

To commemorate the SIDS Youth Global Action Day I thought I would write a post about small island developing states and what the youth in my country are doing to create awareness among ourselves about small island developing states and the role we are deciding to play in achieving sustainable development. Youth from small island developing states, including the Seychelles have been taking action throughout this month in preparation for the UN SIDS conference in Samoa 2014. Young...

The Ministry of Health is contemplating whether the needle exchange programme should be implemented in the Seychelles....

A millionaire alone will not be able to eradicate poverty but the investment in the human race can be a big step in the right direction. Why does poverty exist?...
