EDI­TOR’S NOTE:

Empowered Youth Magazine - - CONTENTS: - Happy Rikhotso

A very warm wel­come to our March is­sue. All the Glory be to GOD for the great things he has done for the mag­a­zine. Af­ter our re­lease of the 2nd is­sue on the 5th Fe­bru­ary, We were ranked Best Per­form­ing Pub­li­ca­tion on­line with Flip­ping Books. Now that is awe­some.

Bring­ing you the best ar­ti­cles ever. We are on our third is­sue, in the third month of the year in both Ju­lian and Gre­go­rian cal­en­dars.

March is one of the most spe­cial months to us, be­ing the sec­ond month to have a length of 31 days, but not only that. We cel­e­brate my birth­day as well on the 2nd. Birth­days are spe­cial and cel­e­brated in nu­mer­ous cul­tures, of­ten with birth­day gifts, cards, par­ties or a rite of pas­sage. I will be cel­e­brat­ing mine with my lovely fam­ily and friends. In this is­sue, we are in­spired by many young in­di­vid­u­als do­ing the most in life. I per­son­ally be­lieve that each and ev­ery ar­ti­cle or col­umn in the is­sue will leave you with a les­son to keep for­ever. Ev­ery day of my life since I have taken this path on the mag­a­zine, I get in­spired by many of you.

With all the amaz­ing sto­ries you share with me so that I can fea­ture in this mag­a­zine, I am very much grate­ful. I re­cently re­ceived one of the most touch­ing sto­ries about a 20 year old girl talk­ing about how her own mother used to mis­treat her. Dear brothers and sis­ters, no one de­serves to be abused in any way. Know your rights and your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to main­tain them. Erad­i­cat­ing such mat­ters needs strong un­der­stand­ing of your rights as a hu­man be­ing. If you know any­one go­ing through abuse, help them so that they live their lives ac­cord­ingly.

My mes­sage to you all for this month is based on dis­ap­point­ment. In life you have to be ready to be dis­ap­pointed. We are hu­man be­ings with dif­fer­ent per­cep­tions. Do not let your­selves to ex­pect more from an in­di­vid­ual than you ex­pect from your­selves. There are so many young in­di­vid­u­als who end up los­ing friends be­cause of be­ing sen­si­tive to dis­ap­point­ment. We are not per­fect in other ways. All you have to do is to align your do­ings with pur­pose. Un­der­stand the dif­fer­ence in men. Learn how to man­age emo­tions and do not take it per­son­ally.

I wish you all a won­der­ful month and hop­ing that you will en­joy ev­ery bit of this is­sue.
