2018 was a rough year for everyone around the world - from government officials and ministers who were pressed with threats from foreign powers, to solving burning issues on security policy and budgeting in order to open new chapters on the journey to the European Union, to citizens who organized protest walks in order to get their rights back. Amidst all this, it is no surprise that the Balkan countries are still well known for "brain drain", when the requests from youth to make realistic chang...

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that American households on an average, spend $1,700 a year on apparel, footwear and related products and services accounting for 3.5 percent of their average annual expenditures.This is not the problem with just American households, but almost every other household around the world. WE not only buy clothes too often, but also throw away so much more that it contributes to a great deal of clutter. Moreover, we wash the clothes in warm water and most of t...

"Human rights law declare 18 as the minimum legal age of recruitment and use of children in hostilities", yet in conflict societies children as young as age 9 are manipulated, tricked, and forced to combat like soldiers in conflicts. Many children are forced to become child soldiers because they have no option or choice to take in order to survive, in order to get their daily bread, in order to live. It is very sad to see children armed and ready for combat when they are supposed to be free, hav...

Wish I could go out in this moonless night and take a walk to my grandmother's house...The distance is so far but with these thoughts that are eating me it would feel like a 15 minute walk...The weather is cold out there, but the anger and rage inside of me will warm me for sure...Streets are empty and scary but voices that live inside my mind won't leave me alone as usual...I may feel hungry and crave for food...I may lose all of my energy, but I won't allow myself to stop...not even for taking...

"What this place offers is more than astonishing, a piece of heaven with good hospitality", said a German tourist about Labuan Bajo, Indonesia. Recently, I just had an opportunity to go to Labuan Bajo. I went there with the purpose of being a speaker for the Indonesia National Library Roadshow. The roadshow consists of two events which is a literacy competition for kindergarten-high school students and a talk show with Vice Regent of West Manggarai, a humanist, a journalist, book writer, and me....

Can a human being hold a Master’s degree or even a PhD? How is it possible? I believe it is impossible! I still don’t understand what Postgraduate schools offer?My biggest goal I ever set in my school days was to be a Master or PhD holder. I used to say that successful people are relentless goal setters who never give up. I worked hard and I hoped my dream would come true one day. But that dream suddenly came to an end. It was two years ago and I was a junior Art student at a university in So...

A medical degree is regarded as one of the most prestigious feats that can be achieved by a person. Admission into a medical school guarantees you a medical degree in the end, well to about 90% of the people enrolled.Talking about Pakistan, admission into a government medical school is a feat that millions dream of, thousands strive for, and mere hundreds achieve it. When I first saw my name in the selection list for one of the most prestigious medical universities in Pakistan, my immediate feel...

I came from a small school. Two classes, about 50 students per cohort. I also came from a mother who, very early in my life, pushed me to excel and live up to my best potential. She put me in competitions to expand my horizons. She drilled me with primary school assessment books when I was in kindergarten. And I know what it sounds like, but I am so so thankful she did what she did with me. I don’t recall ever feeling too stressed out, I played and had fun and whatnot but when it came to working...
