“All I want is an education, and I am afraid of no one.” These are the words of Malala Yousafzai, the youngest person to ever receive the Nobel Peace Prize, a front-cover feature in Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential” issue, and the author of her own bestselling novel, I Am Malala. Her shocking and nerve-wracking story – sitting with classmates on the bus after school and being shot in the head for blogging about life under the Taliban – brought about worldwide r...

Fresh out of college or nearing the end of your final semester in college, getting your first job is a common concern that freshers face. While it is a concern that students should be having, it isn’t a problem. The fact that freshers have to walk through hell to get their first job is barely true. In fact there are numerous companies, small and large, that look for inexperienced fresh graduates and post graduates. So where is the problem? The Fresher Mindset We all wante...

It's been over one month since Emma Watson's speech was presented at the UN but I relate to it time and time again. From my ongoing research on gender relations within formal schooling, I can write pages about this issue, but the underlining premise is that feminism is not synonymous with man hate or female superiority as Emma Watson rightly mentioned. It is the recognition and representation of the capabilities embodied in the woman and we have tried for so long to deal with this...

Youths take up most of the world’s population and so when there are problems they are the most affected. In Zambia 68% of the population constitutes of young people. Therefore young people are exposed to so many problems or pressures like lack of education, HIV/AIDS, teen pregnancies, early marriages, peer pressure, abuse, unemployment and so many more. So if this is what the majority of the world’s population go through then what must we do about it? Well in order for a pers...

Most people in between the age 15-24 are found in romantic relationships just for the fun of it. If you are dating and you fall in this age ratio ask yourself this ‘is this love or infatuation?’ then take yourself back to the times when you are together. Do you act like you love each other or do you act like you want each other, do you only talk about sex and things related to each other’s bodies. In most adolescent relationships sex is a must but why should it be when se...

Everyone's struggled with procrastination. I can procrastinate with reading, watching TV, eating, even watching videos about how to stop procrastination! Sometimes, it feels as though I would rather do anything but study for a Chemistry test. We know that we have deadlines - flashing, bolded dates on calendars and diaries, but somehow, we just can't seem to start working. As deadlines loom above us, we suddenly find another YouTube video that we have to watch, a friend we have to c...

Its seems to me that this summer is much warmer than the previous summers we have had. The rain has not even been constant, it is not so often that rain starts in December. Mostly it begins to rain constantly and often late October. It must be that there is too much heat in the atmosphere causing the water vapor not to condense but if there is condensation then obviously we wont have rain. But what will happen to our country if there is no rain? The gases that are let out into th...

Education is important for everyone, but it is especially significant for girls and women. This is true not only because education is an entry point to other opportunities, but also because the educational achievements of women can have ripple effects within the family and across generations. Investing in girls' education is one of the most effective ways to reduce poverty. Investments in secondary school education for girls yields especially high dividends. Girls who have been...

I have had the most interestingly fascinating encounters with children this year alone. In the process, I have learnt quite a lot about them. Children are mostly not trying to hide their feelings. They are as easy to read as their books. Perhaps the only things not as easy are their questions. They ask you things you think you know in the most ambiguous and complicated way. So you probably understand the silence and listlessness that ensued after I got the question: "Aunty, wh...
