I once saw a post that said, “If we ever stop talking, send me a song,” and that got me thinking, what if we start our friendships that way– by sending each other songs? Friendships usually start through shared experiences and having common interests with another person. Though sometimes, it’s just hard to find that […]
I was recently selected for the World Youth Alliance Asia Pacific (WYAAP) 2019 Summer Camp program. I was truly excited to visit the Philippines, a rapidly developing country in the South-east Asian region. Reveries and expectations filled my mind while waiting for the dates to arrive. I remember singing the song, Summer Paradise in front […]
You could promote dignity without leaving your area. World Youth Alliance (WYA) is giving young leaders the opportunity to lead their communities and educate more youth through opening a WYA Chapter. Last year (2018), WYA opened 17 new chapters around the world. That means at least 17 WYA Members (and their supportive friends) stepped up to promote […]
“I think that this captivating feeling of being relevant forms part of our reality of being men and women…” Revolutionary Spirit Some call them rebels.

Summer, on its own I think, is the greatest festival. Except this year I knew it was going to be different. I was selected for the World Youth Alliance Asia Pacific (WYAAP) summer camp. I was excited indeed because this camp was going to be an international visit for me, coming from Nepal. It was […]
Do you usually find yourself lying in bed on your phone, eating, sleeping, and doing the same routine over and over again? Well, I felt that way, too. I wanted to do something for a change, something worthwhile in the summer, something that would take me out of my boring schedule. I thought about it […]
Because of WYA and everyone at the camp, I was able to feel a warm light inside me again.
I believe that the summer camp experience is truly what is good and what will further guide me in seeking life’s many beautiful experiences. Through the WYAAP way, this camp opened a new chapter of my life.
