STEMinist, equation to equality

A young woman’s story of revolutionising equality, one equation at a time! “Dear Salvadorian girls, you can do anything, you really can do anything, it doesn’t matter if you’re the only girl in calculus (like me), or what your family, friends and teachers say, if you like science, you should go for it, you are doing this for you, the only thing that matters is your happiness. I really want to see more Salvadorian women and girls in Science, because, we are the change El-Salvador needs!”, says seventeen year old, Ana, when asked what message she’d like to give...

Part 2: Ontario teachers union and parents want the name Sir John A. Macdonald removed from schools

(Writer: Felix Ferlicchia, Editor: Wudi Fan) When I learned that Canadian parents and teachers support the idea of removing the name Sir John A. Macdonald from Canadian public schools, my reaction was, “The Sir John A. Macdonald debate is going to go viral.” One of the biggest reason for advocating the removal of this school’s name is that people disapprove the ways indigenous people were treated back in the says when Macdonald was our prime minister.

My school shouldn’t need to change the name it had for more than fifty...

  My fellow Canadians and citizens of the world, modern times have ruined us. For millions of years, humankind had all they needed. But now, in the 2000’s, this is no longer the case for everyone. Most people used to have water, food, jobs, and houses. Now many of us don’t even have five cents in our pockets. So many people in this world don’t have clean water, food, jobs or houses. They live on the streets, with the last possessions they own. We have to change that! Everybody is entitled to water, food, jobs, and houses, and they...

Impact

IMPACT The very first impact I made in this world was a noise. Growing up, I hardly realize making a better impact to anyone anywhere. 7.6 billion and few people to care, for what we do. Blow up a building! What goes wrong to a pale blue dot? No offense, but be ready to behold and strong. Small impact changes, literally. Plant a tree once a year who knows how beneficial it is ? Make others happy while you may not inside. Teach others and start sharing what you know. Surely, no regrets will come forth. Be yourself. Don’t...
