My Internship at YUVA: A Fulfilling Experience

I had never thought I would be doing an internship at YUVA, but now that I have done it, I don’t regret it. I was impressed by the number of projects and initiatives they take to help people, especially young people. It’s nice to see an organisation committed to achieving its goals. So I didn’t hesitate to apply for an internship there.

I found out about YUVA on the Internet. I was researching internship opportunities. I finally came across the YUVA website and saw that the organisation had an internship programme, which immediately piqued my interest, and of course, I took a chance.

My internship at YUVA: A Chosen Path Towards Growth

As a communication student currently minoring in journalism, I’m always seeking to understand my surroundings and learn to give a voice to those who need to be heard. Hence, I was looking to intern where I could focus on self-growth and discover several facets of life. I felt that YUVA could lead me on this path, and I landed up doing my internship at YUVA.

You could ask me: “Why didn’t you choose to intern elsewhere?” My answer will always be the same: “After reading about YUVA, I was deeply attached to its vision and belief.” However, I was abroad when I applied here, but I was surprised by the quick response from the executive director, Mr Krishna Athal. Usually, when looking for an internship, they have to chase after it, which can sometimes become exhausting. But this fast response stood out to me, and the internship request situation felt reciprocated. Then, I was given my first interview the next day at flexible hours, and I’m grateful that it went well.

What do Senior Citizens Think of Life Coaching?

In life coaching, fundamentally, the coach is helping the individual to improve their life performance: in other words, allowing them to learn. There is a vast difference between teaching someone and helping them to learn. But have you ever wondered what senior citizens think of life coaching?

While there are many different coaching models, here we are not considering the ‘coach as expert’ but the coach as a facilitator of learning. Coaching is a process that aims to improve performance and focuses on the ‘here and now’ rather than on the distant past or future. Coaching is a process that enables learning and development to occur and, thus, performance to improve. To be successful, a coach requires knowledge and understanding of the process and the variety of styles, skills, and techniques appropriate to the context in which coaching takes place.

Cognitive Abilities of Political Leaders Who Lead from the Front

This article looks at the cognitive abilities of political leaders who lead from the front. The process of cognitive ageing is complex. A critical aspect of these abilities is the speed with which many operations can be executed. The dimensions of cognitive functioning are orientation, memory, fluency, and numeracy. Studies have found an association between ageing and cognitive ability and retirement.

There are at least two reasons why understanding the process of age-related decline in cognitive abilities is essential to politicians. First, cognitive functioning is fundamental for decision making, for it influences individuals’ ability to process information and make the right choices. As many countries have moved towards individual provision systems for retirement income, decision-making becomes crucial for appropriate consumption and saving plans. Second, cognitive abilities may be regarded as one aspect of human capital and education, health, and noncognitive abilities. Politicians have focused their attention on human capital accumulation, much less on human capital deterioration.

Le Fardeau des Femmes Mauriciennes

Les femmes sont fortes, aucun doute là-dessus. Elles portent souvent le poids du monde sur leur épaule et elles le font avec honneur et ténacité. Elles sont nombreuses à vivre dans un monde opprimé par les conceptions qu’ont la société sur elle.

A l’Ile Maurice, les femmes subissent tous les jours des injustices tel que la pauvreté, le harcèlement sexuel, la discrimination et bien plus encore. Certaines les dénoncent, mais d’autres se sentent oppressées et n’osent pas s’exprimer.

Le Statut de la Femme dans la Société Mauricienne

Le statut de la femme était, auparavant, comparable à celui d’un enfant. Le stéréotype féminin montre que la place des femmes est à la maison, à s’occuper des tâches ménagères, des enfants et de leur époux. Les droits des femmes étaient limités et très peu d’entre elles avaient une place, dite valorisante, dans la société.

C’est souvent uniquement lors de la journée de la femme, célébrée le 8 mars, qu’on l’honore. Cependant, des progrès ont été faits et le statut de la femme est bien plus haut placé. Elle est même considérée comme l’égal de l’homme. Mais ce n’est pas toujours le cas et plus particulièrement dans la société patriarcale qu’est l’Ile Maurice.
