English Essay - Media
Living in the 21st century means living in an age built on technology and on the internet. Teenagers today are deeply absorbed into their phones and most of their time is spent on social media like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. What today’s generation is not consciously aware of is that the media is controlling not only our opinions but also our lifestyle in both positive and negative ways.
Take a second and think about all the movies you watch and have watched, the cartoons, the Disney movies, and the comedies on TV. Remember when you sang along with those Disney characters that you were so fond of, the very funny moments you watched of an overweight actor fall over because of their size, think about all those cartoons you watched when the girl with the glasses was considered the nerdy one, and the girl with the pink outfit was the appealing one. Music, movies, tv shows, magazines, and advertisements promote gender stereotypes to children where in today's world children are more involved with the internet, and, therefore, more affected by media. The images and stories kids see in the media play a significant role in framing their sense of "acceptable" in society.
Young People Must Have a Right to Choose When It Comes to Military
If many of you did not know, many youngsters when they finish high school are forced into the military for two years, and wasting precious time they could be spending on their studies and Uni. Why should boys at the age of 17, 18 and 19 have no other choice but to follow this protocol of their country?

Long Distance Relationships
1. Text or call whenever you are able to. That doesn’t mean that you have to spend 24/7 talking on the phone (even though that’s somewhat what I did), but at the same time you have to have time for yourself and your partner must have time of their own as well, even though you may not see that now.
English Essay - Music & Art
In the century we are living in, new pieces of art and music are introduced every single day. Older pieces are constantly replaced by new ones. However, several traditional pieces remain significant to us forever, as they defy us as individuals, especially if we were listening to a song at a particular stage in our life, and in the future it reminds us of what we have lived through. In society music and art are equally as important as they defy our past, our traditions and our future.
Violent Crime Among Youngsters
In today's society it is very common for children under the age of 18 to be violent, as they are deprived of social and emotional learning in which they need from parents and teachers. However, it can also be argued that this violence is not caused by the lack of social and emotional learning, instead the reason being, that teenagers and children are still in a critical state where they are still developing, and this may make them violent despite their upbringing.
Graphic Design Essay (A-Level)
Edgar Degas is an artist that I always loved as a child. I remember taking ballet classes and seeing Degas’ ballerinas for the first time, in which had a unique effect on me. It was during my ten years that I read this particular quote of his and it really got me thinking. This quote later deeply inspired my graphics theme as my intent was to show what you want to say to others and what you make others see. Having researched a development of this concept I decided to focus on Double exposure, with a focus on a visual interpretation of our heritage, where we come from and what we want to make others see on a very subjective level. After all, when we look at an image we all see something individual and an image is always open to interpretation or manipulated by the artist. Double exposure in both the photography and graphic design space is a relatively simple technique that offers amazing results if it is properly explored and worked with. Exploring my theme, through Photoshop my intent was to manipulate my images, achieving a concept that emphasizes my theme greatly through the use of several natural landscapes and buildings. Through the technique of double exposure, I explored this quote closely, as I attempted to make people see a variety of images through my work.
