Our school en­cour­ages talk­ing it out

- Picaboo · Dubai

Most young adults get over­whelmed. We are liv­ing in such an era that the dig­i­tal world can fray your iden­ti­ties.

Right now if you don’t have Snapchat, for ex­am­ple, you are con­sid­ered to be some­one who is not very well-con­nected or does not have any tal­ent. If you are not on these plat­forms and us­ing them sig­nif­i­cantly, you are con­sid­ered out­dated. Yes, there are those who ig­nore this en­tire move and are still able to ex­press them­selves and shape their per­son­al­i­ties, but if a per­son is shy or an in­tro­vert, they face a big is­sue. This forces them into a shell. These are the peo­ple who are qui­eter and this en­tire at­ti­tude pushes them to the ex­treme, at times. I have seen some of my friends also ex­pe­ri­ence this. I, of course, speak with them about it and try to help out but it is def­i­nitely grow­ing.

How­ever, at school, we be­lieve in talk­ing to each other. We pre­fer to talk to our teach­ers if we are fac­ing any prob­lems and be­cause we have so many dif­fer­ent na­tion­al­i­ties at school, it re­ally shapes the way we ap­proach life. From Ms Ayush Walia
