Youths to be interviewed on The Zone
Video interviews of youths talking about their careers, talents, social life and fashion are being featured on The Zone at www.timesofmalta.com/thezone. Tomorrow, new interviews will be uploaded.
Children learn about all sorts of ‘life’ subjects from Personal and Social Development (PSD) teachers like Amanda Caruana. They learn about sexual issues. They practise handling life-threatening situations. They are educated on subjects like addictions, media, professions and voluntary work. Parents entrust their children in the hands of people like Caruana.
Who are PSD teachers? What are their qualifications? What do children learn from these professionals? What is it like to teach difficult subjects like stereotyping and relationships?
See what Caruana has to say about her profession and why she loves it so much.
Although there was plenty that Barberi could say about his singing and performing experience on stage, he touched on an important subject matter – that of growing up as a young boy who didn’t feel he fit in the societal norms of tough young men.
Barberi never showed interest in sports. He didn’t feel he could make it to any of the men’s teams anyway. He wasn’t interested in much of what was expected from him as a man. But he found a way to overcome personal issues and struggles with this reality and discovered music and theatre.
Watch tomorrow’s video and be inspired by Barberi’s story and passion for what he does.
Get heard and share your own experiences with others. Tell them about your career choice, what it takes to get where you are, the ups and downs you experience, and offer advice to those who are still uncertain about what they want to do in the future.
