I am a 20 year old aspiring journalism student.

I am based in Nyanga and have been following your newspaper for quite a while now. I have also been following the motivational corner by Zyd Mzamo and his reads are always very interesting.

I have however noticed that your newspaper does not really have a specific and constant column, hence I am writing you this email. I would like to offer my services to your newspaper as a columnist /writer. Write ups that may vary from poetry, concerns about and from the youth...what’s hot and what’s not, advice on bursaries and motivationa. This would be a column dedicated to the youth.

A platform where the youth can be listened to and heard. I feel that we as the youth are so misinformed and at times misunderstood. We talk about youth rights, but most of us do not know or understand the responsibility that comes with having those rights. We talk about freedom, we celebrate it, yet so many of us are prisoners to drugs, sex, abuse. As girls we are being taught to be ambitious, to aspire to greatness, but we need to keep in mind that the most important aspiration is marriage, kids; why are boys not taught these values as well?

We are so satisfied with the crumbs handed to us, that has always been, that we cannot even question anything. These are but few of the topics and questions I want to explore and shed light on. I thank you for your time taken to read and understand this mail
