*Close your eyes* Picture yourself flying over the Indian Ocean and you look down below and all you see is crystal blue waters and waves crashing. You take a look closer and see birds flying near the surface and dipping into the water occasionally. You dive into the water, 10 metres, 20 metres, 30 metres (just don’t hold your breath) and there with you are beautiful corals and fish. Be careful not to damage anything. It takes a long time for it to return the way it was. The S...

Our Beliefs determine our destiny. As young people I believe that our beliefs are the ones that determine our destiny in life and it is through positive beliefs that we can be able to follow and achieve our dreams and overcome obstacles that we find in our lives. Therefore we as Young Reporters in South Africa, would like to urge all of the young people to have positive beliefs so that they reach their dreams and help others in life. Listen to this piece.

Here is an example of a young man whose life has been difficult and has used music as an inspiration to realize his dreams and inspire other young South Africans.

Tragedy after tragedy, same topic every decade with no absolute idea to do away with the scourge. Climate change with a negative effect in the lives of the old, the young and more especially the youth who are considered to be the leaders of tomorrow. One among many areas of concern is the socio-economic sector. The natural causes of climate change is addressed by a layer which protects us from the harmful rays of the sun; this protective layer is called the ozone layer. But the activities undert...

The young reporters in South Africa have become aware of this and wish to raise awareness in their communities through the medium of radio about the effects of cyber abuse. Take a listen.

Under the theme of environment, I decided to tackle Energy; its impacts, merits and demerits. The environment is a place that is a home to all living things. The process of keeping it clean and healthy can be a great deal to most living things. The topic ''Environment'' caught my attention in so many ways. I thought to myself, ''Where will we live if the environment is destroyed?'' Most forms of energy have negative impacts on the environment yet we still use them. Why? Hydro-Ele...

What can I say, South Africa has always been that country for me. I want to go there so badly. After I read the very well written article by Aulia (http://bit.ly/LlBZjH) from Indonesia who was talking about her love for India, I thought to myself, "hey, why not pen down something about my most favorite destination as well." This thought brought back all those wonderful reasons I have for South Africa. Have you ever heard someone speak zulu? They have this thing where they do...
