Last Thursday; we discovered that Yashika's work may never pay-off and that her dreams may never come to fruition. We were then informed that she would be removed from the life that she had built here and sent back to Mauritius, the very place that her mother had worked so hard to remove her from. Her life here would be ruined and the educational endeavours that she has made, nullified.

A makeup free selfie doesn't raise awareness like reading Cancer Research UK's latest statistics would, and hashtagging #nakedface doesn't exactly provide a crash course in checking for lumps.

Must read

Yes, I am young and not world weary, but as a supporter of the cause I have certainly grown weary of the misconceptions and the false assumptions about what the organisers are saying. So I propose to tell you exactly what the campaign is NOT...

Totally agree with this
This week a new 'nomination' craze has hit Facebook: the 'no makeup selfie for cancer'. Ostensibly a good thing, right? False.

A university in Wales has set the ultimate honeytrap for prospective students: a year abroad in the Indian Ocean at its new joint Mauritian campus. Aberystwyth University announced it would be opening the new campus, along with launching four new undergraduate degree programmes and one MSc postgraduate programme this September.

Well, as luck would have it, I think I might have found a way to reduce youth unemployment and save Labour £5.5bn; the solution is apprenticeships.
