TOEFL Writing: Young people today have no influence on the important decisions that determine the future of society as a whole.
think these days , don’t think that young people do not influence momentous decisions that determine the future of society. In my opinion, I disagree with this. With the development of the Internet and social media, there are many meaningful things we can do to make a change.
First and foremost, the youth/young people can use modern ways to solve social problems. By using social media, even teenagers can make their contribution. A 14-year-old girl named Daisy heard about the severe water resource problems in Africa. She felt sympathetic and called for
a donations on the Internet. Each person only needed to donate one dollar, and altogether they could help people in Africa to dig a well. In the end, she received tremendous sums of money, and this act improved the water shortage problem in that area.
Moreover, it is noticeable that young people, especially famous stars, can convince/influence
attract the their contemporary contemporaries to care about social problems. Some endangered animals are hunted by humans to make fur coats. A 20 years old Chinese star, named Linyu, made an advertisement asking people to stop using fur coats. This video went viral on the Internet, and many people soon followed her proposal soon.
Admittedly, young people don’t have a vital influence on big decisions
as aged that adults do. But involving themselves in current issues will become an impetus for learning, a stimulus for growth, and a trigger for actions. Also, participating in the alleviation/elimination/reduction of social problems can foster/increase intrigue our interest s in caring for the existence of all human beings.
To sum up, young people today do have some influence on important decisions that relate to the future of society. We wisely use social media and celebrity endorsements
effects. Young people in this era should be proud of themselves and learn to become a person individuals with broader horizons.
