Being the Youth Observer to the United Nations has provided me with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to apply my experiences, passions, and interests to a global platform for change. Over the past year of my term as the second-ever Youth Observer, I have traveled throughout the United States and abroad, learning not only about the opportunities available to me as a global citizen, but also about the hopes, wishes, and concerns of youth throughout the world — views that need and deserve global representation.
I wanted to be the U. Youth Observer so that I could encourage other young people to become engaged in supporting the goals of the UN. I wanted to amplify the voices of youth so that we would all be heard at the highest levels. I also wanted to be Youth Observer because I believe in the power of youth. I truly believe they know I am looking at them and therefore they direct things at me on purpose.
I started to believe people could read my mind and likewise with believing everyone knows my face I still to this day believe everyone on a live TV broadcast knows I am looking at them and that everyone can read my mind. Hurling and soccer are my two favourite sports. The voices become very vicious at the end of February and March I was hospitalised on the 27 th February because I overdosed on paracetamol as I was hearing voices telling me to kill myself.
I was discharged on the 20 th March but I ended back up in Waterford hospital on the 31 st March as I slit my wrist on this date. I stayed in hospital until the 30 th April When I was in hospital during this time I went through another bad experience which made the voices worse. I was sent straight to a Rehabilitation clinic called Tusnua in Enniscorthy, Co.
This spirit follows me till the end of my journey
Wexford on the 20 th July from Waterford hospital. I stayed here until the 2 nd of October I spent 11 weeks in Waterford hospital in and 11 weeks in rehab in I taught these vicious voices would never go nor the hallucinations and that there was no hope for me whatsoever. But thankfully they have found a tablet that helps me although I do still hear voices but there not vicious and there manageable enough but sometimes I hear voices telling me to do and say bad things.

The references to the natural world are few and distant - this poem is about necessity for change, leaving one dark situation and finding another that is more positive. This person who, one day, finally knew what they had to do, is someone who is coming in from the cold, into the light from the dark, re-joining the world of the whole, finding their own voice, no longer a broken individual. The Journey One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began, though the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice — though the whole house began to tremble and you felt the old tug at your ankles.

Inner Voices: My Journey with Psychosis and Schizophrenia by May-May Meijer
Diction Language In the opening twenty two lines there are several words that suggest negativity in the life of this person.

To be able to listen again to that inner voice of wisdom and truth, a sort of companion throughout the ordeal. At the last moment, in the nick of time, before it was too late, the speaker the person, 'you' began the journey and overcame the obstacles both real and imagined.
