Need your idea on my feature story angel

Sarvina Kang
Posted March 9, 2011 from Cambodia

Dear all,

I am lost now so please give any and all thoughts you may have on the following story angle:

  1. Unemployment situation in Cambodia – economic crisis that is tracking people out of work either corruption, no equality of study and teaching.

  2. Poverty – Due to Cambodia is a developing country where most girls are little chance to be educated. (I would love to write all causes that make most children drop out of school.)

  3. Human Trafficking – Not only women & Girls but Men who have also been trafficked to be workers in neighbor countries.

I am waiting your help & idea on my feature story that which topic above should I use to write for my Feature Article.

Thank you so much for your comments!

Lots of Love,

Sarvina

    Writing a feature story is also require a lot of resources and material. All your suggested topic are good but i think you should focus on what you have materials for. You need a lot of research too.

    Well done and all the best

    Hi Nilima,

    Yeah of course, many men have been trafficked too in my country just the percentage is little than women and children. I think I need to combine three topics above together coz I am writing half of unemplyoment now and I think I will include poverty and human trafficking too. Thanks so much for your idea!

    Love,

    Dear Sarvina,

    All these are great. My only suggestion is that you choose the one you think you can research it well and have enough info and materials to write.

    Best of luck, RA

    Wow, you got it all, girl! The sisters are right, you can go about your piece easily if your materials are available. I have read your past entries and I do believe you have tackled all the three issues well enough. If I may suggest, you focus on poverty - because unemployment causes poverty and trafficking comes out as a result, since people resort to desperate "solutions" and get victimized by syndicates, like being trafficked in drugs, sex or illegal recruitment, if only to survive destitution. And you have the luxury of 2,500 words! Go go girl .... all the best...

    Always, Emie Zozobrado

    Hi sis Emie,

    Thanks so much for your suggestion! It is much for me, yeah I will work on it as I need to include all poverty, unemployment and trafficking. I need to go to some research on these issue. So the specific one is to write about poverty. Yehhh.....way to go..Thanks thanks!

    Love,

    Yes sister Sarvina, your piece may be about poverty in general - then you can tackle other issues related to it like unemployment which is why most people are poor (no source of income), and also why people get trafficked, because of their desperation to escape from poverty. Remember, you have 2,500 words and that's that. All the best....

    Always, Emie Zozobrado

    Dear Sarvina

    For me , I consider human trafficking as an alarmed issue that we should know about more. As Poverty and economic crisis hit almost all the world countries.

    Dear Sahar,

    Thanks so much for giving me an idea! Yeah it is a big issue that we all should know, it is almost the world's issue that we have been trying to end the trafficking. I will include this for my feature.

    Dear sister Sarvina,

    All of the issues you brought are very interesting and important to be known by the outside world. After reading the learning materials, I realized that the module 4 is pretty challenging and we need time to research. So I would like to recommend writing on what is your expertise. By this way, you can create a great feature story without hardship. I believe you can do the best for whatever.

    Best regards, Insha Allah
