‘WIRED DIFFERENTLY’ By Bodé Enítàn-Bobbington, , I remember walking to the take the taxi, in my hands were two bags – left hand was a black duffle bag with my best clothes, piled with my all my music CDs; in my right hand was my black travel suitcase filled with my suits, sneakers, and other stuffs I can not remember. Walking with me was my mother who had in her hand another travel suitcase, as she dragged it, in her eyes I could see as they became teary. I wondered in my heart what would I have to say not to make my mother shed tears to see me leave her as her only son, the child she nurtured for years. My mother knew this day would come, but she never imagined that it would come so soon. She kept telling me to have my bible close to me, and to never forget where I come from and never forget ‘whose child I am’. So I hailed a taxi, in the process of negotiating the price with the taxi driver, I told him the destination was Victoria Island, he said the fare would be N1, 500.00, and I agreed. I looked at my mother, trying to signal her to bring the suitcase as she did not want to let go of my suitcase she had in her hand. I had to slowly let loose her grip from the suitcase, then placed the bag in the trunk of the taxi. I hugged my mother, and because I avoided to make the situation feel too emotional I walked quickly to the taxi, with my mother saying out loud, ‘Do not forget to call me when you get to your sister’s [Oyinkan] place. This is the part I remember vividly, as the driver drove off, I looked at my mother’s reflection through the side mirror as she waved to me. All I could see was the bright light from the sun shinning against the side mirror. I tilted my head differently to make sure I saw my mother’s face; I stuck my hand out the window and waved back.November 4, 2021Vote

‘Glob the Quiet Frog’ By Lucy Downer, , ‘Glob the Quiet Frog’ is a story about embracing being an introvert and learning how to find your voice. The tale opens with Glob, a desert rain frog from South Africa, who has yet to find his squeal. Desert rain frogs (as featured on David Attenborough’s ‘The Perfect Planet’) are the size of marshmallows, but emit a high-pitched squeal larger than their size would suggest when they gather at night to feed. Glob, however, is too shy to participate, so sets off one night on a journey to find his voice. On his adventure, he encounters three other animals for whom quietness is a strength. From the chameleon, he learns that blending in is a survival technique; from the South-African antelopes (the Kudu) he learns the importance of listening, and from the elephants he realises that being quiet is a powerful tool that doesn’t make your voice any less valuable. At the end of the story, Glob returns to his tribe, to join in with the nightly chorus in his own special way. ‘Glob the Quiet Frog’ is a picture book for 5-7 year olds, written by myself and illustrated by my older sister Sophie. It reflects on our own experiences of being negatively labelled as ‘shy children’ whilst growing up, and aims to spread the message that being quiet is not a flaw, but a power. The book also carries a strong environmental message, shining the spotlight on endangered animals, and educating young children on under-represented species.November 1, 2021Vote

‘Odin’ By Zenstateofmind, , Odin, is the story of a boy who crawled his entire existence, when he could have walked. Even soared... Literally. This story reveals history repeating itself time and time again. We live in a world where parents do their “all”to secure a beautiful future for their kids- their plans affect their children’s marriages, career choices and even their lifestyles. Odin (meaning a mythical god) would have had a more thrilling and fulfilled life, if he’d at least tried resisting the comfort his father had always provided him. Instead, he lived an ordinary man with no purpose or future. He couldn’t even take care of his own father because, all he knew was how to be taken care of. Parents don’t realize it’s one thing to guide a child, and another to not give him the chance to take risks, learn new things, unlearn some teachings or practices which doesn’t always match the child’s life purpose. Most parents impose their belief systems and opinions on their kids. Some just want to continue to provide for their kids without thinking of newer ways to teach him survival. In turn, the consequences follow; The parents deny themselves access to what better lives their kids could have provided for them and for themselves (it’s not just finances but in finding real love and happiness, which is the essence and purpose of living) and some of these kids live with resentments and regrets. Odin is every child out there who is scared to step out of their comfort zone, parental consent or societal stereotypes, in fear of being labeled a rebellious child.October 7, 2021Vote

Rain water had puddled under the lamp post. A breeze ruffled the mango tree in the courtyard and a few twigs fell down and broke. Thunder rumbled in the distance. Did I hear a soft knock at the door? I turned back… Hoping of Mitali back from college, I rushed to the door. The knock got intense by now. I unlatched the door open. It wasn’t Mitali. A muddy, out of breath, with a pale white layer of dust and tears on her face, a seven or eight-year-old girl was looking at me.
