Life is crazy and so many things happen around us all the time, without us even realizing. It is sometimes worth it to just take a step back, breathe, and actually take everything in. Imagine you are sitting at a metro station, restlessly waiting for the train to arrive while scrolling through your phone to kill time. If you’d just look up for a second, you’d notice the homeless woman, sitting on the stairs waiting for someone's attention. Or you’d catch a tv advertisement for a new sustainable water bottle company right in front of you, finally finding the exact one you’ve been looking for, for weeks. What about that group of men seemingly checking out those well-dressed businesswomen? There’s so much to take in.
All these people around us – how do they feel, where do they work, what are their challenges, fears, hopes and dreams? 25onehundred’s passion to enable young people to speak their mind and amplify their voice is what led to the birth of this blog, our very own Blue Mango! Language is one of the most powerful tools out there, which is why we want our generation to embrace it, and use it to express themselves fearlessly.
We are so excited that you’re here and reading through our submissions! We’d love to hear what you have to say, so if you’re interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Starting today - come for a visit and stay!
