Recently, I went through something that was pretty revelatory. I mean, I never understood why some things in terms of global issue prioritization made it first/ over Education. In my opinion, I always thought and always will think that Education comes first. Then, one of my close family members told me that education would rarely ever benefit anyone if they could not go to school because they were too sick. Upon asking the reasons for whatever illness they had acquired, I realized...

“Each year, there are 1.7 billion cases of childhood diarrhoea. Diarrhoea may be a minor inconvenience in some places, but in many countries, it kills. But, there is good news! The simple act of handwashing with soap can reduce the risk of diarrheal disease by up to 47%. This is why I’m celebrating Global Handwashing Day. Will you join me?” So tomorrow is Global Handwashing Day 2013! As an Early Childhood Studies student I am constantly surrounded by babies and children...

Taking Care of the Environment The Current population of the United States is 311 million people. Consequently, the current world population is at 7 billion and counting. We’ve been hearing a lot about the car industry and the President’s affairs with GM but we should stop to think about the bigger picture for a moment---cars are just a single part of a much larger Earth. This Earth, one that we take for granted every day, has provided us with the necessities of life for ne...

I wrote a speech about Child Labor. I had the opportunity to deliver to a group of people about two years ago in a competition sponsored by the Rotary Club. Although prizes and medallions were far from the glitz of this serious event, I wanted to share with you all my speech. It is, perhaps, one of the most passionate addresses I've given, regardless of the text which lies so banally on this blank screen. Let me know what you think! Child Labor and the Never Ending Plague of...

Climate change is transforming the planet’s ecosystems and threatening the well-being of current and future generations, increasing the rate of food shortage as a result of droughts, water shortage, and high temperatures globally. Ever since the first climate talks in Geneva in 1979, there have been a series of climate talks, yet no profound solutions has been attained. This has driven world leaders and scientist into postulating false solutions to climate change which is rapid...

I got a chance to interview the global executive talent consultant, World Business Forum speaker and prestigious Egon Zehnder executive Claudio Fernandez-Araoz the other day. We discussed several things, but perhaps the most important dealt with leadership, ethics and morals in a world that is forgetting the importance of holding the door open for someone. Although I understand this doesn't have direct relations to other posts that I've put up or some of the ones you guys put up, I...

Before I begin my day/work, I just had to write this post. I want the world to read this! I am seriously questioning this world I live in now. I watched the news this morning and nothing was positive! This morning I have heard: - Indian slums being destroyed and no significant effort for those to be rehoused. - Helicopter crash - Weapons and war - Poverty and inequality - Effects of climate change - Injustice to our health - Homelessness in New York (2...
