I am currently a student in university working on my undergraduate degree. Although school is very difficult and takes a lot of time and work, I enjoy it all very much. I love science, technology, engineering, math, foreign languages, and also historical icons (people that actually did something beneficial to society). I dislike reading long stuff, especially when it's not something of my interest or not intriguing whatsoever and that's why I'd rather do math than read but I do like to write research papers (when it's of my interest). However, I must say that reading is essential because it increases one's knowledge and also makes them articulate (so kids stay in school and read your boring books, trust me you'll appreciate them in college, like I am now, and also in the future).

They were conscripted into war, gang raped at will, forced into domestic slavery. Yet, it is the women who laboured and advocated for peace throughout our region."
