I recently had the privilege of meeting renowned Australian TED Talk speaker, Yassmin Abdel-Magied. Looking at that gorgeous feature photo of her, what kind of person do you think she is?
An oppressed woman trudging through the world wearing colorful scarves to alleviate her every day pain of being a woman? Is she a musician? An artist? An activist?
Young reporter Janna Jihad, 10, sets an example for all of us. She saw evil so she set out to inform the world about it, hoping it will provoke us to make change. This girl has a spark like no other. She is a dreamer, but she takes action. I believe it is possible for her to go to Harvard to study journalism and she will get that position at CNN or Fox.
Pray for the struggling souls in Palestine. No human deserves to die that way.

No matter where you are from, how underdeveloped or terrible the circumstances, don’t ever let society tell you “You can’t do anything great in your life.” We are all capable of creating futures for ourselves, even if it means overriding our ego to ask for help. Never be ashamed of the people who raised you and brought you where you are in life. One day, when you are successful, you will proudly show the world your background and inspire everyone else who have it harder than you, to persevere. You can show them that they too have a chance of succeeding.
Black History Month is an annual celebration since 1976 of the achievements by black Americans. They have such a significant role in the development of our country and I would like to take a moment to commemorate all the black Americans who have brought this country to what greatness is has come to. One month is surely not enough to devote to them.
Watch this video of poets describing what Black History Month means to them.
Express yourself, your faith
and everything you believe in.
People may criticize, but then again,
haters gonna hate.
