“We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.” – Marilyn Monroe
We have turned 5 and proud to say that you are holding a very special issue in your hands. Today, I invite you to feast your eyes and warm your soul with this special edition. As tradition goes, each anniversary issue is curated by a group of bright and diligent students, who gain firsthand experience in the world of publishing and at the same time, lend the spark that we need to carry on the good work. I still remember our first issue so vividly; how we interviewed the first set of people, set about with the design and layouts till late in the night and finally, sitting eagerly at the printers to get the first copy, hot off the press. It has been an extremely exhilarating time, as I have learnt so much in this journey and met such inspiring people, learning about all the fascinating things that they have done in their young lives.
It never ceases to amaze me how many options the youth have today to choose from, and yet, many of them unable to make decisions or are unhappy with their lives. So, I really admire those who have a clear vision and are working hard to give their all to become who they want to be and get where they want to be. This comes naturally to some and not so naturally to the others.
So, like the 5 elements of nature – Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Ether, we showcase these young achievers, who in their own realms have made a contribution, a difference and set off to their paths of glory. Each has had their own struggle – some bigger and harder than the others. But what matters today is how they inspire you with their experiences in the cover story ‘Power to the Five’.
Keeping up with the times we are creating more video content on our YouTube channel, as a means to provide an engaging and interactive platform to our online readers. We also have an ambitious app in the works, which will be launched soon and will make it easier for our readers to get push notifications and relevant content anytime, anywhere and without searching for it. Each and every member of our fantastic team has worked really hard to make all this happen, and so a big thanks to Team Youth Inc. who are helping shape the future of this glorious nation.
