Gen Z women redefining success

This is concerning the cover article “Gen Z women redefining success” by Benazir Raz (YW, March 9). The article celebrates the strength and empowerment of Generation Z women as they face modern challenges and break traditional gender roles.

It beautifully illustrated how these girls are growing up in a world where competition is tough due to technological advancements. It also highlighted how the previous generation, including our mothers, aunts and teachers, helped in this.

I appreciate the writer and the YW team for highlighting the remarkable achievements and resilience of Generation Z women.

Prank gone wrong

This is regarding the story “A prank gone wrong” by Mahnoor Ilyas (YW, March 2). The story teaches us that seemingly harmless pranks can sometimes lead to serious problems. For instance, the parents of the girl in the story faced an unforeseen accident because they hurried to get to their daughter, who was playing a ‘truth or dare’ game with her friends.

While playing tricks and pranks is okay as long as they don’t harm anyone, it’s crucial to stop when they are a cause for concern, especially to your parents. Always think twice before playing pranks and consider how they might affect others.

A kangaroo’s tale

This concerns the story “A kangaroo’s tale” by Muhammad Ibrahim (YW, March 9). It was a very interesting story, and I listened to the entire story from my dad. However, the ending of the story was a bit sad.

In my opinion, a better ending could be that the kangaroo gets back to his family in Australia and everyone remembers him at Oshawa Zoo. And whenever somebody wants to see that kangaroo, they visit the jungle in Australia where the kangaroo lives happily along with his family.

The story “A kangaroo’s tale” by Mohammad Ibrahim shows how animals suffer at the hands of greedy people who capture them for money. These animals are sold in the black market, and their parts are used to make things like clothes and medicines.

If the government takes action quickly, these illegal and unethical activities won’t happen. I appreciate the writer for talking about this topic that we don’t often discuss. I hope the YW team publishes more stories like this one, so we can learn about important issues.
