It’s been a week since the last article I posted on Voices of Youth. In this post, I guess I will not talk about political or educational problems. I will not elaborate how climate change affects people in so many ways. This time, I would like to talk about heart and the self- about how to handle a big down, the low phase that will be experienced by every person in this world. I love to write and sing. I guess by writing and singing, I can help people. At least I can help them...

“Giving birth to a child while myself being a child was the most painful experience of my life,” said Rubina, a woman from Pakistan who had been married at 12 years old. She was interviewed by the team of Girls Not Brides – The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage, on this website (http://www.girlsnotbrides.org/girls-voices/rubinas-story-pakistan/). Before we get to the causes and the impact of child marriage, I think we should learn about the meaning. Child marriage, a...

How Can we as Future Leaders from around the world make an impact? In the lives of others, war affects youth. I know this because in my own country of Liberia, we are a post war country. We need, especially youth, to be able to create an environment where war affected youth can be a part of this network for change. Many youth are getting involved in violence, drug addiction, and worst of all our young girls and becoming women prostitutes. Thank you. You are welcome to share y...

"Have you seen my Childhood? I'm searching for that wonder in my youth Like pirates in adventurous dreams, Of conquest and kings on the throne..." Childhood - Michael Jackson I see that most of the writers here are between the ages of 18 to 23. I guess we have (almost) the same childhood stuff in common, like the same hero, favorite movies, and others. We loved to play hide-and-seek and other "traditional" games. However, I am sad to discover that most children nowaday...

What is happening in the world? A poet once said "my mother has got syphilis, but I still love her". The world is broken. And I still love her. I don't know why, perhaps because I still hear babies crying, birds singing, still see someone sliming to me without any reason. Every day, I try to find some light, and I always do find it. But deep in my heart, I know I want to find the sun. Light brings me a little hope, but the sun, it marks the beginning of a hopeful era....

The UN's humanitarian chief Valerie Amos has warned of an unprecedented global crisis in 2014. She called for increased support for millions displaced by conflict and natural disasters. Valerie Amos warned Thursday that millions at the beginning of 2014 were facing severe hardship either as internally displaced people or as refugees. "2013 was a real test of the global humanitarian system, and there is no indication that 2014 will be any different," Amos told reporters in New York...

The Pope has spoken about 2014. He calls for change, peace and unity across the planet. In my opinion, I believe the Pope to be as demanding as every other citizen of the Earth. Many skeptics thought 2013 was bad, unlucky even, because of the dreaded number 13. I think the bad quality of a year can only be attributed to the bad quality of the people who create it. And time is created by everyone! So, here's a proclamation to everyone saying that we should all get our heads out of t...

The 2014 Winter Olympic Games are just around the corner and Sochi, population 350,000, is eagerly awaiting the arrival of thousands of athletes from around the world. Amidst terrorist bombings and threats nearby, on account of Chechnyan rebel groups, Sochi faces great security challenges arising in the form of space, land availability, warm climate and safety from terrorist coups. Chechnya is to Russia what Tibet and Basque are to China and Spain respectively. Essentially, they ar...

As I go through my daily routines I occasionally check the news the news to see what's going on. Now, don't get the wrong idea. I love to educate myself on what's going on in this world whether it's the good stuff or the bad stuff. But, there's a reason I don't look at the news every day. The content seems to appear over and over again and it's escalating in terms of violence and just overall evil things. Today, for instance, there was a shooting in Florida because a man would'...
