“The second edition contains many interesting articles about Solomon Islands youth. We have featured some famous sporting, music, and community heroes. It also contains poetry, short stories, finance tips, health advice, and much more, all written by youth.”

Twenty-fiver (25) year old journalist Samie Waikori read the full magazine as soon as it arrived and said he really enjoyed it.
