I wish that all youth could get equal chance to do what we love, to maximize their potential, and to contribute to society.

On this year International Youth Day I hope youth can read and observe what happen around them more, I address this hope especially to Indonesian youth. By reading, observing, and discussing what they have seen I think youth will not be swept away easily by the overflowing information from mass media. I also wish they can bring changes to the society.

The balance between academic, social life, and critical thinking skill is what I hope for on this Youth Day. In my opinion, the lack of capable persons who are willing to give back to their society is the issue of today. I also wish that youth can be more aware to the world’s issues and be bold in delivering their opinion. I believe, one spoken idea may change the world!.
Accepting differences is also a thing that must be done by youth in order to minimize the conflict among different groups.They also need to hold on moral standard so we can eradicate corruption.

I expect youth to spend more time on positive activities and to be united. We all must be prepared since we are going to rule the country in the future. I guess Indonesian youth are easy to be driven and this is like a two sided coin. On one side, provocation can move youth to unwanted place. On the more positive side, a right guidance that I hope coming from government can mobilize youth to do something useful.
Happy International Youth Day, what are your wishes?
