The night Ladan lit up London #YouthPower

Change Begins with you..

(12.08.2015. BBC London Interview. Youth Day)
2015 is one important year, world leaders will meet at key summits to set the goals and targets that will effect how to tackle issues like poverty, inequality and climate change for years to come. If we want to insure that our leaders set and fund ambitions goals to tackle these issues, then we must speak now before its too late. By raising our voices at key moments in 2015, we can fundamentally change how we tackle the world's biggest problem. The United Nations summit for the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda will be held from 25 to 27 September 2015, in New York and convened as a high-level plenary meeting of the General Assembly. Presidents and Prime Ministers from 193 countries will meet in New York to agree global goals on the most pressing issues of our time. 

To celebrate Youth Day, I was an ambassador for Restless Development during the Hacktion 2015 event at Google Campus. Five Continents, 80 countries, 100,000 young activists. International Youth Day 2015 was unforgettable, The largest generation of young people in history unleashed their power using the twitter Hashtag #YouthPower. The media team worked hard on a big stunt for the national media. Successfully, we have achieved coverage in the national and international media, including The Guardian, Huffington post and Global Citizen and reached over 36 million people through Social Media. I must say, young people are changing the game and we need more young people to stay active and change our world.

While most politicians and military leaders in history were more less squabbling about trivial matters, or worst, going to war for no reason, they were some leaders who truly made a difference when they had their time in the spotlight. True servants of the people, these great leaders have shaped the world we know today and with out them we we'd definitely be looking at a much bleaker existence.

Can we just talk about the Legend Nelson Mandela? when I think about Africa,and the most fearless fighters against racial discrimination, I can't help but remember this great man. I was beyond honoured to be part of this stunt and have my picture next to Nelson Mandela, Even after spending 30 years in jail because of his actions, he still had the will power to continue his great work. When you are young, you may think there aren't many ways you can change the world around you. From travelling around the world and learning about different cultures and religions to sitting your dorm, there are a variety ways you can change the world. Some times we get so caught up in our problems and daily routines that we have no tine for others. Doing small acts of kindness. like offering offering to pay for someone's order or getting lunch for a homeless man, can help those who are at their lowest point and give them a hope. In return good things will come around you....
