When I was teaching Grade 9 students on my practicum, I would start off the day with an inspirational video. This one in particular, "Day of the Girl" by the amazing YouTube channel, "Shots of Awe" (motivational speaker, Jason Silva) spoke to me. Growing up in a developed country, Canada - I still had challenges towards getting an education. I want to share this with young girls and women who may be going through these challenges. Empowerment and inspiration are important, they dri...

I would first like to dedicate my condolences to all the girls in Nigeria who went missing. I don't even know where to start. I feel like what Boko Haram has done is very foolish. Who would have thought of taking over 200 girls from their homes and then selling them? Are they mad? I mean I am 11 and if I went missing my parents would be overcome in sorrow. The more I think about the issue, I feel like the military in Nigeria and the President Goodluck Jonathan should be doin...

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Said What He Thinks About Race Now That He's Made It, And Almost Nobody Noticed.

This is a video from the site UPWORTHY. It was originally posted on that site by Rajiv Narayan. To set the scene, the (poorly posed) question is referring to comments made by former Treasury Secretary and Harvard University President Lawrence Summers, who suggested that genetic differences could explain why there are fewer girls in science. Yup, he really was Treasury secretary and president of Harvard. Neil deGrasse Tyson's answer is, um, out of this world. There, I said it....

This is such a perfect week for me, because I got a chance to join to the very 1st UNICEF Activate; Innovating for Children – Innovating for Equity by UNICEF Indonesia to celebrate the 25th Convention on the Rights of the Child. It was held on April 23rd, 2014 at Erasmus Huis, Jakarta, Indonesia. As a youngster, I feel really happy because there were many other youth that came to that place with the same purpose as me. We wanted to be inspired, to be involved and to be motivated...

What do you think about skills for rural and urban youth? Are they the same? The answer is positively different because it depends on related factors such as the environment of youth, education, technology, and so forth. Here we will elaborate what kind of skills rural youth have. Rural and urban areas have quite the same characteristics. Poverty is sometimes identical with the rural area, predominantly in low and some middle income countries. This stereotype cannot easily be lost becaus...

The Earth is, surely, full of beauty; for everyone and from every perspective. This world, yet, is full of beauty for solely those who are able to commit to a peaceful lifestyle. Being able to detain such a peaceful lifestyle, despite all the negativities is another discussion which I am, sadly, not going to write about in this argument. Since, if we decided for elevating all the negativities in this article, it would surely go on with no end. As a consequence, this article is goin...
