Design For The New Youth Credit Card.

Bookmark and Share

"Rise & Fulfill."  

Youth. A generation that is so capable of so many things, so many changes, and yet we, as youth still doubt ourselves. 

Youth. A generation that dreams, BIG dreams, and yet we, as youth think that the dreams are unreachable.

We think we're not good enough. We have doubts. 

This is all normal, but sometimes we have to just stop dreaming, and start taking actions; to fulfill our dreams. To turn the dreams to reality.

It is time for us to RISE and FULFILL our DREAMS.


The main concept and message of my card named; "Rise & Fulfill" is to send a message to all the youths of the nation that we should stop daydreaming of the 'What ifs" of life, instead we should start focusing on how we could make those dreams to reality. 

Once we got a great idea, we should start by taking a productive step by just taking a leap of faith and start working on the idea, even though how seemingly small an idea may seem then, we do not know how much the idea is capable of creating and changing lives. 

"A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on." 
 - John F. Kennedy 

I hope this brief post got my message over. I hope that this message will get through all the youths that will use this card and remember that; there are a lot ahead of them; a lot of opportunities and goals that have yet to be accomplished. 

We, as YOUTHS, should stop taking our DREAMS merely as just 'dreams', but we should RISE and take ACTION to those 'dreams and turn them to REALITY

Review Of : The Call

Bookmark and Share

Just watched ' THE CALL' last night.

Directed By Brad Anderson

Starring Halle Berry, Evie Thompson, Abigail Breslin, Morris Chestnut

When veteran 911 operator Jordan Turner receives a call from a girl who has just been abducted, she soon realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl's life.

Chair-gripping psychological thriller.

When I first entered the cinema to watch this movie, I entered with great interest but I did not expect a lot from it, due to it's generic kidnapping storyline. Reminds me of some episodes of Criminal Minds & the movieTaken, but what caught my attention was the approach and perspective of the film, it's a kidnapping movie but from the POV of a 911 call center operator. 

So, what I have to say is that once the suspense part comes in, you'll never lift your hand up from the seat. It's really chair-gripping and keeps your eyes glued to the silver screen. The Call will definitely be one of the few good thrillers. 

The story is merely simple but the plot is well-structured. Intense, creepy, somewhat frightening & twisted.

As I previously mentioned, the interesting approach towards the story brought the whole movie to live. With heart-pumping scenes that involves emotional dialogues that keeps the audience hooked. Applause to the writers Richard D'Ovidio, Nicole D'Ovidio, Jon Bokenkamp.

As for the plot, well structured and a little 'twisted' I'll say. I won't give a way spoilers to you all, but the plot is what really got me holding to edge of my seat. Suspense from start til finish. Also, the story might actually teach you a thing or two about what you should do if you're in the kidnapped's situation.

Acting, well done. All the characters from Jordan, the kidnapped girl, and the psychotic serial killer. Their acting really made the whole movie intense and also creepy.

Visually, the cinematography was good as it brought the audience closer to the action and emotional aspects of the characters. Not forgetting, amplifying the creepy disturbing , heart-pumping scenes in the film which I will not tell. :P 

All in all, The Call is a must-watch movie, especially if you love psychological thrillers. I'll honestly say that movies like this is definitely worth a watch!
