If there is a kind of diversity in the world which is a cause of anguish for some of us, it is the diversity of body types. It is frustrating how some people seem to be blessed to stay lean throughout ( or for most part of ) their life while others have to sweat it out for hours, keep a check on what they eat and how much they eat, and always try to look out for 'healthier' substitutes for their favourite food.Keeping fit is undoubtedly a goal for many people irrespective of what a person's body...

You know those people, those people who choose to be themselves? To wear what they want? To keep their skin makeup free? To get the perfect guy and the perfect grades? Yeah, me neither, because perfect doesn't really exist. Everywhere you go, those beauty magazines and blogs flash at you saying 'Nobody is Perfect' or something along those lines. We are in this society where skinny is the new high, and beauty is the new goal. It doesn't really matter what you do or say, somebody is bound to judge...

Right across the faces of me and you,There was a little bird that always flew.The bird was strong, smart and wide,For he had a wonderful pride.He saw the people full of joy,And said - What a world oh boy!Out of happiness, and strength alike,That day he flew to the best of his might.He went to its family, told them about people,Assured them, they could see this from the steeple.Days were happy, and years went by,The bird lived merry, and enjoyed his sky.But times changed, the sky became dark,On h...

Never underestimate your efforts and your courage to advance the cause you plead.I was invited to a conference on peace that I never dreamed of being part of. As a young woman "peace-builder", I seized the opportunity without thinking because we share the same vision.Besides, It's always worth it to try!This conference, under the theme #Mothers4Peace, was organized by the NGO Make Mothers Matter in Casablanca, Morocco May 3rd, 2018.We had the honorable presence of Princess Esmeralda of Belgium,...

1 in 4 Americans refuses medical care due to a lack of funds (according to a 2017 article in the New York Post). Many people have a difficult time receiving proper and reliable healthcare due to large expenses. We, as a dedicated group from Cañon City High School in Colorado, decided our way of helping would be supporting our school’s blood drive, as well as informing people about everyday health problems. Our blood drive has been and continues to be a massive success. As usual, our school had a...

I’d say, that I’ve been screwed over by a lot of people in my life. My mom, teachers, even so called “friends” have hurt me. However, today we’re not talking about them, we’re talking about you. I guess I could call you my first love. The first guy to make me fall head over heels. I was deeply in love with you...and you broke me. “You’re so young!” They’d say, “How can you say that you’ve been in love!?” Sometimes I wonder that myself, but what I wonder most is how on Earth I fell for someone li...

Note: This January, we were tasked as a class to pick a UN Sustainable Goal, in order to Think Globally and Act Locally. We chose Sustainable goal #12, Sustainable Consumption and Production. These are our reflections.The last drop of waterSlowly swishing side to sideAs the truck empties the waste Filling up the land’s empty spaceA bottle, swept out of existence Discarded, abandoned, dropping awayIn silence and loneliness lyingTrash is discarded - yet is this all that remains in the end?Time spe...

For the last quarter of my last year in high school spent in Philippine Science High School - Southern Mindanao Campus, we have to deliver a speech for 3-4 minutes in front of an audience, which basically is composed of my classmates and our teacher. The speech we have to deliver can be about anything under the sun. There were a lot who have done their speeches before me wonderfully so I was kind of nervous about delivering my speech. I don't want to be just any other person standing in the stag...
