Hi everyone!, if you´ve read any of my posts you might already know I live in Chile but I am Colombian. This week's post topic brought me back to the harsh inequality reality highly present here but a lot more directly noticeable there back in my country. Since I am not there I´m not going to portrait a particular case but I will introduce you to 2 different realities coexisting at a bare minimum distance. So I´m from Barranquilla, where it´s summer all year long pretty muc...

If you are wondering what I am concluding, kindly check the first two posts here and here. It is great to know that our youth know what changes to expect and demand from our leaders for the benefit of society and national prosperity. After listening and interacting with many young people like myself, I have come up with some wrap-up points-or words of wisdom, like the older people say it here. I hope many youths find invaluable advice in these words. 1. Education is not...

This week im doing something a bit different, I'm going to write a poem, I decided to write a poem because I see a lot of articles and thought this would be contrasting. Is smoking fair? You light a cigarette And your lungs cry out Is smoking fair? You breathe in the cigarette While her parents cry out She's hooked up to a breathing machine Is smoking fair? You exhale the smoke She struggles She cant breathe Her lungs collap...

What ever preconception you have about money, you must be aware that the winds of circumstance blow on all of us in an unending flow that touches each of our lives. Many young people around the world constantly experience the blowing winds of scarcity, shortage and insufficiency. We are blown daily by the same winds of circumstance and buffeted by the same turbulent storms of discontent about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. We have failed to realize that wh...

Do the youths really know about money? We all know the definition of money as a medium of exchange or a legal tender for buying and selling. We all want to make a lot of money, youths are known with having many ideas bubbling within them, but it seems implementation is impossible because of lack of funds. For lack and insufficiency to be reduced and perhaps eradicated especially among the youths, there is an urgent need to understand some things we can do with money. These...

I recently read "I am the Messenger" by Markus Zusak, and found it an engaging and poignant book. “I am the Messenger”, written by Markus Zusak (author of “The Book Thief”), tells the tale of a drifting and listless teenager, Ed Kennedy. At first glance, Ed appears to be a complete loser. An underage cabdriver with not much of a future ahead of him, Ed spends most of his leisure time playing poker and pining helplessly over his best friend Audrey, who doesn’t even belie...

On August 12, the International Youth Day, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Global Citizen launched a #showyourselfie global social media campaign to urge world leaders to make the needs and rights of young people a priority in the post-2015 development agenda. Young people were encouraged to take a selfie and...

Have you ever heard of Trigeminal Neuralgia? It's very likely you haven't. "It is estimated that 1 in 15,000 or 20,000 people suffer from TN" (Wikipedia.org) So what is Trigeminal Neuralgia?

It affects the jaw, mouth, ear, scalp, teeth, the ocular nerves and...
