Salam dear people,
I hope you’re doing good 🙂
I’m taking part in an online program called YaLa Citizen Journalism.It’s a program that brings together young leaders from all over the MENA region. It’s an amazing program that help in enriching our knowledge on different fields. It also gives us a chance to know more people from different culture, religion, country. I’m really looking forward to learn more from it.
That’s been said, I decided to share with you my experience or journey throughout this program by sharing different parts of it. The reason for that is because I’m very proud of taking part in it, and I think it’s a very good idea to spread the positive energy and the change that YaLa program has on us on a wider audience. You can learn more about this program here.
After watching a very enriching lecture on Ethics and having a discussion about it, our first assignment for last week was to share our top 5 ethical rules.
So, here are the 5 basic ethical rules that I will follow insha’ALLAH:
Be truthful: by that I mean looking for the truth wherever it is and transforming it as it is. It also means acknowledging mistakes and correcting them.
Be responsible: my work is mine. It has my name, my beliefs, my thoughts, and my way of seeing the world. But that’s not all, my work can influence people’s thoughts on certain things, so I need to be aware of that so that people can trust and rely on me as a source of information.
Be skeptic —> Be accurate: For me, skepticism means not to belief in everything that has been said. More importantly, it also means not to transfer anything that I don’t belief as true. This will definitely help me to be more accurate.
Be creative/ be diverse: I think to be successful in what I’m doing I need to be diverse and creative. People wouldn’t be interesting in what I’m writing or speaking about if I didn’t show them where my creativity lies, why am I different, why should they spend time checking what I’m doing.
Respect —> Accept: Respecting opinions that are different from mine is a key rule in every act of life. In Yala program, I think we are learning to do that more effectively (it’s like a practical exercise after long theoretical courses ) and that will help us accept and respect one other even if we were from different culture, country, and religion.
Like I always say as a general rule in my life, I like to treat people the way I want to be treated and I try to do that as much I can. Following the same rule, I like to see and read things that follow these rules. So I will do my best to follow them in my work whatever that was (blogging, journalism, translation, writing…).
That’s it for today. Finally, I really recommend you to apply for this program in the upcoming semesters. It will really HELP.
