Everyone you admire was once a beginner and a teenager. Teens, the most active and fresh-minded individuals in our population pyramid, are mostly entitled to the pillars and future of the society, which they are but for being the pillar that doesn’t shred is the future we focus on or the present?
A teenager, or teen, is someone who is between 13 and 19 years old. The ages vary depending on each country. Most of us probably don’t know that they are called teenagers because their age number ends with “teen.”
According to research, the most googled career-related questions by teenagers are: How can I make money? How can I be Steve Jobs? Is traditional education worth it? and so on.
Teenagers and Career Insecurities
Teenagers mostly are too insecure to talk about their dreams and what they aspire to be because they think it’s too big for people to believe in it, and this is what pulls them away from what they always wanted.
For many teenagers, what they are doing right now or what they want to do is either because they didn’t know what to do or were told that this is the right thing to do or for a good-looking transcript. Maybe many of us were too embarrassed or scared to say that we wanted to be a rapper; hence, we wanted to become a lawyer?
Start a conversation with a teenager or with yourself if you are a teen and ask Where do you want to be in the next 15 years and ask yourself a second question: what are you contributing at present to be who you aspire to be in the next 15 years?
Opportunities and Teenage
Have you ever seen a potter making a pot out of clay? Exactly, this is how the age between 13-19 looks, delicate, and can be shaped the way we desire it to be like.
Opportunities are definitely not the optimum solution to teenage insecurities, but it is definitely a way out. When we take opportunities, we get to have conversations with people and learn new things that make us self-aware about what we like and don’t. Having clarity of thoughts is what drives you to a better path, and opportunities let you have that clarity of yourself and what you aspire to.
A Constructive Platform
For the development of teenagers; grabbing the best opportunity is one of the important assets to explore their hidden quality. We believe that their learning enthusiasm takes them to another level of professionalism. Looking at the teenagers’ needs there are various opportunities to explore their interests. Likewise, In Nepal, Glocal International Teen Conference is conducted every year. It is a conference for teenagers where the teenagers from around the world gather to find the solution for global issues. It is an initiative taken by Glocal Pvt. Ltd to provide a platform to all the teenagers where they get to INSPIRE and LEAD.GITC is a fantastic platform to share your ideas, initiation, insights, perspectives, and experience, side by side, reflecting on the world affairs and impacts based on teenagers and youth.
The plenary of GITC will not only let you empower yourself and others but hear experiences of people of your age and the people who have achieved milestones in their life. This experience will guide you through creating your own story by hearing others and this experience of yours will be the start of your new endeavors.
Thus, being a part of GITC is taking an opportunity to jump into a pool of it and at the end of the day, Teens are for the Win.
