Who were you until society turned you into something you are not? When we are young we see the world and everything different, we don’t understand society and society’s concepts and ideas, we see everything with a positive eye, in a positive way. We don’t know that society limits you because you are different. We don’t understand that society demands you to be or act a certain way to be accepted, that you have to be skinny, to cover your imperfection, not let people see y...

Entrepreneurship is much easier said than done, they say. Well, you will never believe it until your little baby is at least one year old. Your whole journey begins with an idea in an unexpected inspiring moment, with enough craziness to step forward. Most of us take the very first step without the adequate planning, skills, and knowledge to succeed; but a few of us do. So, I started my startup at the end of 2015, while my idea was nothing but a fetus. Actually, the idea came to...

On May 13, 2012, the dismembered bodies of 49 innocents were dumped by a roadside near one of the largest cities in Mexico. The victims were found inside plastic bags with their heads, hands and feet chopped off, making it impossible for authorities to identify them. It is speculated that the massacre was the result of a dispute between drug cartels. The crime has horrified Mexico and quickly drew international attention. I was aghast when I learned about the killings. In Mexico,...

I am going to start this post very directly by saying that "Mental Illness is not something to joke about". Mental Illness affects many people daily and there is absolutely no humor in it. It's not funny at all to throw insensitive jokes around and hurt people in so many ways. It is not funny either to reject people suffering from mental illness. Everyone can have mental issues, whether it is chronic stress/depression or complex things like bipolar disorder. I don't know if you h...

If there is one thing more frustrating about gender inequality other than inequality itself, It is to make others understand the existence of gender inequality in our lives. Most people or organizations are familiar with the concept; but no one sees how they contribute to it. Because It is so embedded in our cultures we don't see it as gender inequality. And in this situation a person like me, someone who is aware of the inequalities in her life and draws attention to them, is ofte...

I am a student of BS International Relations in one of the best universities of Pakistan globally renowned as Quaide Azam. I consider myself extremely blessed as it was my dream. But I did not know that after getting admission and after joining university I will miss my college that much. University life is totally different and it changes you a lot. School teaches you how to stay loyal with people no matter what and where, while university teaches you how to be a hypocrite. In...

Plugged Carly Kabot The bell rings, what’s the first thing you do? You reach down and pull your phone out of your bag. Maybe you didn’t notice, but the other twenty students around you did the exact same thing. The addiction is seen throughout the halls, the streets, even at a dinner table surrounded by a group of friends. Everyone’s head is down and their shoulders are curved, their eyes missing out on what’s directly in front of them. We have become slaves to our...

A 10 year old boy is playing football with bombs above his head, and mines underneath his legs. Another 10 year old boy plays football with rain above his head, and grass underneath his legs. The first boy will be gone forever if he puts his leg at a wrong place. The second boy will cry a tear or two if he falls on the grass. Who will be heard when they complain? And who will get a second chance to make up the mistakes?
