2. Christopher France

3. Mario Joseph
Mario Joseph, currently working as a Journalist for Stabroek News has been engaged in online activism for a number of years, raising awareness and spreading truth whether it be via his facebook page or conversations in person or other direct communication media. His passion for writing and care for humanity knows no bound, which translates to his vociferous and opinionated pronouncements on issues of every aspect of life. Politics is his first love, as he believes that almost all human suffering is as a result of corruption and greed that have engulfed our governments, the world over. He believes that it is possible to severely restrict the level of corruption in Governments through stringent and robust audit mechanisms and comprehensive oversight commissions that are complimented by a competent law enforcement body and expedient judiciary. One of his goals is to become the President of the Republic of Guyana, where he would have the capacity to effect the changes he believes will work to foster exponential economic growth, transparency and accountability and overall prosperity for the all the people of Guyana. His ultimate goal is to be a successful advocate for global economic and financial reforms that would loosen the colonial strangle hold developed nations have on emerging economies and lead the earth into a more environmentally stable, truly democratic, fair global economy.

It is his understanding that in order for us youth to reach our full potential we must first step out of the crowd and cast away our fears of standing alone.
As such, blogging was always a forum by which he believed he can make a difference by discussing topics that are both relevant and important to the development of our youth and nation.
