"The duty of youth is to challenge corruption." - Kurt Cobain. Corruption: is it a challenge or an obstacle? Or maybe it's an indication that something is wrong? In fact, corruption was the main cause for which the Tunisian revolution started back in 17th of December 2010. It’s been 4 years now since Bouazizi burnt himself alive in a front of the municipality as an act of despair yet rebellion against a regime that used to enhanced poverty and unemployment among people....

Through few years now, I had some experience in helping kids with their school subjects such as English or Math as a volunteering task or simply to save some pocket money. However, this time things were slightly different. In the beginning of summer, my neighbors’ seven-year-old daughter, “Hiba”, asked me to teach her how to use her new tablet and some computer basics as well. And, I was glad to accept, so we set up a schedule for our sessions. In fact I accepted this task fo...

“Today, I voted for the first time in my life.” This was my first tweet on the 26th of October. Yes, today I voted for the first time in my life. Today, I practiced my voting right as a citizen and accomplished my duty to my country. I never thought I’d have mixed feelings on that day. I felt the pride, joy, satisfaction, worries, impatience… I felt the pain in my stomach and the smile on my face that I couldn’t (and didn’t want) to hide. In 2011, the first...

“What I Would Tell My 20-Something Self" or “X things I wish I knew when I was 25”… I have comes across many articles with similar titles lately. Articles in which entrepreneurs, CEOs, writers, humanitarians and other persons express what they wish they had known at a certain age to avoid some failures or to gain more time maybe. Maybe they just wanted to avoid some disappointments or maybe not. Is it a wish or an advice for younger generations? Anyway, it doesn’t rea...

If I have to pick one big challenge for youth in my country, it’ll definitely be unemployment. As a Tunisian young citizen, I have always been worried about the raising rate of unemployment. In fact, the unemployment rate among Tunisian university degree holders is 30 percent, more than twice the 2005 rate of 14 percent. Year after year, the number of young people with a university degree increases, but also a large number of them find a major difficulty in finding a job. F...

In the last couple of days, I have been participating in a sort of summer camp organized by NATEG. NATEG is the abbreviation of “North America Tunisian Engineering Group”. It is an organization created by Tunisian engineers working in north America (Canada and USA) and the “NATEG days” event is one its projects. During three days of workshops, conferences and networking dinners, the participants, mainly engineering students or freshly graduated engineers, had the chance...

Five-million-citizens confirmed their will to participate in the election process. Five months till the end of the year… the deadline set by the national constitutional assembly to organize both parliamentary and presidential elections. And after the adoption of the 2014 constitution, the 5th fundamental laws of the country’s history, Tunisians have been asking several questions: Should I register to vote in the upcoming election? Or maybe I have to boycott the whole proc...

When I asked myself what could I do if I were a billionaire, I had basically two main ideas: The first idea was about empowering youth. And the second one was about helping refugees starting over their lives. Let’s start with the first project: What someone can do to empower youth? From a personal point view, I believe that the main fields to work on are education and employment. Therefore, my idea is about the creation of an employment fund and a scholarship program. The emp...
