To All The Virtues I’ve Wanted To Sow | Year of Youth Blog

Last edited 4th November 2018

I'm a girl, therefore, I’m all for romantic comedies. Nothing beats staying in on a rainy day with tea and chocolate binging everything in this category. However, since diving further into my faith I’ve found myself more aware of certain postures to uphold, especially in the little things, such as those certain viral movies available on Netflix that I can watch and rewatch to my heart’s content. Although seemingly harmless, they sure do have a way of influencing the way love is perceived and the way we want to be loved.

What I Learned about Death and Friendships | Year of Youth Blog

Last edited 1st October 2018

This week we celebrate the Feast Day of my absolute favourite Saint. My little hero, St Therese of Lisieux. So it is fitting that I tell you about my affinity with her, how she taught me so much about suffering and friendship.

Why Did God Give Us The Power Of Free Will?

Last edited 18th September 2018

One of the greatest gifts that God has blessed us with is the gift of freedom. Freedom allows us to choose our actions and proves to us that we are not bound by some predetermined plan for our lives. God granted us this gift as part of the dignity he bestowed on human beings to be able to be the masters of their own actions.

If I Could Change the World... | Year of Youth Blog

Last edited 5th September 2018

Earlier this year, I interned for the Holy See’s (Vatican’s) office at United Nations. Anyone who knows me knows that this has been my dream since I could walk... and it was everything I could wish for. I fell in love wholeheartedly with the work and only more in love with the Church. I watched in awe as the diplomats I worked under stood on the world stage and fought for the dignity and rights of the less fortunate. I hoped one day I could do the same. As I navigated through the grids of New York City, I plotted daily on ways I could return.

Take Prayer Personally

Last edited 5th August 2018

Prayer didn’t play a very big role in my life until I hit my early 20s. Going to Catholic school through high school helped me learn how to recite everything at Mass, as well as the words to all the formal prayers like the Hail Mary and the Our Father; but still, I wasn’t really sure how to truly pray from the heart.

Last edited 25th July 2018

Trust in Him. Three words so beautiful, when practised, yet for most of the time, seem so incredibly hard to achieve.
