As a young person and advocate Ive always liked looking for actions to take and opportunities to share that generate a positive impact, so as soon as I read there was a blogging internship chance for UNICEF I knew I wanted to participate I already read regularly posts by the time I applied and I even had an account myself, yet I never wrote a post until I was accepted and joined this awesome generation of bloggers and to be sincere all I could think was .. What if anybody wants t...


This short post is just an invitation I want to make based on a very peculiar experience that happened to me today. For starters I am a hopeless animal lover...I own a dog that I treat like a son/brother/friend/cousin and have volunteered at many shelters and animal sanctuaries also. I have rescued cats and dogs myself since an early age simply because I cant help to feel sorry about homeless animals. Anyhow, I was arriving home late at night with a friend of mine and found a...

For centuries people have moved across the globe to pursue their dreams or just looking for a slightly better life through tourism or indefinite residence, and even though the trip sometimes might be uncomfortable, people find their expectations crushed or face discrimination, migration continues. This takes place not only as a national, regional and transcontinental phenomenon but with its own divergent characteristics. That way migration flows have changed involving for ex. a lar...

Hello everyone! Briefly about me I coordinate youth activism at Amnesty International Chile along a wonderful team of human rights defenders and volunteer at a community dog shelter. I have joined all kinds of human and animal protection initiatives for at least 6 years which has brought me to the question on the tittle and endless amount of times. The more I got asked that question the less I knew how it happened. I was convinced it was a combination of factors that conver...

Peace talks seem to be the only topic people address when they refer to peace in Colombia and it´s perfectly understandable , in fact even though episodes like this one have already happened before I did not think I would be alive to presence –in the distance- one myself. Peace talk is taking place surrounded by criticism around president Santos, Cuba, the observer members, the fact that negotiations are taking place without armistice, the agreements reached and most importa...

Many young people have been called by their older relatives “magicians” just for helping with things we do in our daily basis like recovering an email accidentally deleted or changing the font on a text. Every day we learn something new about our computers and media but we know little about the ways technology can empower us to understand, practice and raise awareness on Human Rights. It´s clear that many webpages – including social media - today ban abusive content; the...

It is hard to believe that one of the most unequal countries in the world according to the Gini index; a “poor” country where people live surrounded by an ever-lasting history of violence and huge polarization, can be called a happy country. Or to be more specific, a country where people are genuinely happy. However according to a Gallup international survey, Colombia has continually been one of the happiest countries in the world, in fact the happiest country in 2013. I wo...

Employment is an essential topic in public policy because for many a job is much more than a salary. It´s the path to acquire what´s needed to break social restrictions and to raise generations of professionals who give back to their country (and the world) with the product of their investigation, entrepreneurship and functionality. These restrictions are often overcome through the social mobility built upon education and employment, that´s the reason why parents don’t hes...
