I don't know how many members of the Voices of Youth community read about Kenya. If you do, you know that things aren't going very well down here. If you don't, now you know.

Puberty. For me, that was when things took a very wrong turn. Not that things had ever been right, but they became worse when puberty hit. At first, I didn't think that anything was wrong.

When I was around 16, I went to sleep one day a...

Dark skin should be adored! Dark skin is beautiful!" And I agree with you. Dark skin is beautiful.

I am a light-sk...
