Privilege of Social Justice Access: The Flaws of Modern Activism

In Michael B. Jordan’s interview with Vanity Fair for their November 2018 edition, he claimed that it’s difficult for people to think beyond slavery when they look at Black people because “we don’t have any mythology, black mythology, or folklore.” His statements seemed to come from a place of good intentions, and his point was about getting more Black people’s stories to be told in Hollywood, but the delivery of his message was lost on

ConnectHear: A Hope For The Deaf Community

ConnectHear is the vision of three young leaders and activists from Pakistan. They use the very thing that “intimidates” most people as a way to empower the hearing-impaired individuals and as a purpose to bridge the communication gap between the deaf community and the society and bring them together as one. Their soon-to-be-released tech gives the idea of using sign language interpretation services to spread awareness and bring forth initiatives that allow hearing-impaired individuals to

A Hope For Pakistan: Prime Minister Khan Addresses Nation

On the 17th of August 2018, Imran Khan was sworn in as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Last night, Imran Khan addressed the nation as the Prime Minister of Pakistan for the first time, passing an hour-long across-the-board, televisual speech. To the rear of a recitation from the Holy Quran and the playing of the national anthem, the Prime Minister inaugurated his address by thanking his supporters who stood beside him throughout his 22 years

The Happy News: The Real Life Newspaper With Exclusively Happy Articles

Do yourself a favor and search “happy news” on google. Please. As soon as the webpage opens, your entire browser is a brighter place. White and yellow doodles take over your page and (it might seem simple) but are you not just a little taken by the cuteness of it all? This is a real newspaper, consisting of ONLY “happy” news. The Happy Newspaper is the only news media of its kind because it has

Nawaz Sharif: The Rise and Fall of the Crown

Mian Nawaz Sharif inaugurated his political livelihood back in the course of a period where many industries, including the Sharif’s steel business, were taken into the public sector by Pakistan’s then-Prime Minister, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. His father, Mian Muhammad Sharif, was an entrepreneur who had next to no interest in politics, but when his factories were municipalised by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, he moulded up a hostility against him. In some way, General Jillani convinced him

Muslims Are Being Forced Into Concentration Camps in China

From the spring of last year, the authorities of China in Uyghur and Kazakh have amassed what could conceivably be a million Muslims, including even some foreign civilians, in massive detainment and “re-education” concentration camps, where they are to be seized and “constructed” into prototypical Chinese citizens. The detention campaign is known to be a trademark of China’s government safekeeping gear, bolstered by the greatly xenophobic, hard-hitting regulation of President Xi Jinping. Hailed from a partway

What Did We Learn From Genderquake?

With the recent showing of the reality television show, Genderquake and the debate that followed, the identity of gender has been headlining across the world. The reality show on Channel 4 saw eleven individuals of different gender identities live together in a house for a week. Although the concept is meant to educate people across the globe about the gender spectrum rather than the concept of two genders, I discovered that even in the LGBTQ+

The Revolution Will Be Instagrammed: How Two Teen Activists Are Changing The World With Their Posts

Let’s be real: the way we use Instagram today is far more influential than the way it was intended to be used. What started off as a yet another photo sharing application has now become a revolutionary method of communication. Instagram is our generation’s virtual megaphone—a phenomenal platform that allows each and every one of its 500 million daily active users to share, inform and debate trending topics. With Instagram, people like me, who like to keep

Why The Argument Against Gun Control Is Irrelevant

It’s hard to believe the degree of violence innocent people are witnessing every day. The Parkland shooting is only the most recent in a string of school shootings that have occurred in 2018. With 17 deaths, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has quickly surpassed Columbine to become the most devastating high school shooting and falls second only to Sandy Hook in terms of all-time school shootings. Teenagers should be writing term papers, studying for AP tests

The 2018 Women’s March: Revolution Doesn’t Give Up

Another year, another milestone for women. The Trump Administration’s first year in office brought scandal, investigation, outrage, one legislative win and ended in a government shutdown. Today, over 300 rallies in every U.S. state show that the resistance has never forgotten what they stood for. Oddly enough, the President himself decided to tweet this support for the protests today, confusing some about the true intentions of the march. Beautiful weather all over our great country,
