New Road as a Youtube vlogger 2020
phileaf - 13個小時前
It has been a long time since I last updated my account here on Fridae. So many things happened and I don't where to start. My last blog was 2016, so imagine the events. But I'll try to recall and share those things as I go along with my blog. I've learned so many things. I failed most of the time. But I don't easily give up easily. In life, you lose some and gain some.
The start of 2020 was not good for me. Not just because of the COVID, but also I lost my job. My company decided to lay off some of their employees. I was one of those unfortunate people who will not come back the next day. It was tough but I had no choice but to continue. There are times that I couldn't sleep. I kept thinking about the rent, my bills, food, and other expenses. It is hard to start and plan the days ahead knowing that it is uncertain.
A close friend of mine came to visit me. Probably it was a sign of something new. An answer to my questions. He is also a vlogger with lots of subscribers and viewers. My first reaction was "no way...I can't do that. It is impossible.." He taught me how and the tricks of being a vlogger. My only concern is I am shy. I have that feeling that I don't want to be the center of controversies and scandals. As much as possible, I want my life to stay in private. But I was motivated and obviously, there is no alternative. I run out of cards to draw. So I've decided to start my own youtube channel.
So far I've created my first video blog. It was tough to be honest. Not only I am no techy person and I don't have proper equipment. But I've just exhaust whatever I have to start my channel. So whoever and wherever you are, if you are reading this blog. Please check out my youtube channel. Here is the link of my first video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=E1hPjhRCS-g&t=5s
Feel free to share your opinion, suggestion, or anything under the sun. I would be glad to listen. I am hoping to grow my channel and to inspire other people. Whoever you are and wherever you came from. There is always a second chance for all of us.
Thank you for reading and I'll see you on my next blog.

United Nations Public Service Day Observed at AAFT University
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected more than 180 countries, infected millions and killed hundreds of thousands of people. In addition to the health implications and loss of life, the pandemic has strained health care systems, disrupted the education system, wreaked havoc on businesses and economies, led to job losses and disrupted social life with lockdowns, curfews and other stringent measures aimed at containing the virus being put in place globally. All this has happened in the context of implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, for which public service and public servants are critical.
“From frontline healthcare workers and public health officials to teachers, sanitation workers, social welfare officers and more, the humble public servant has been thrust into the spotlight, helping elevate awareness and understanding of the critical role public servants play in everyday life, and in particular during times of severe crises, such as the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah Chancellor AAFT University of Media And Arts at a small event on web to pay gratitude to all public servants.
To honor the work of public servants globally and focus on the critical role frontline public servants have been playing in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) and AAFT University organized UN Public Service Day on 23 June. Dr. Marwah is also patron to IFUNA- Indian Federation of United Nations Associations.
“Today, as we honor these essential workers and so many more, we must also reflect on how to better protect, recognize and invest in their well-being as we build back better, together. And I say directly to these inspiring public servants: We are all deeply indebted to you for your remarkable acts of service to humankind”- Dr. Marwah read the message of UN Secretary-General António Guterres.
ICMEI And NAI Appreciated Police Role In Lockdown
New Delhi: “While the national lockdown has largely left the public confined to their houses, the police are literally on the ground to enforce the prohibitory order. Even during lockdown, they carry out a range of duties ranging from instructing people to maintain physical distancing in markets to taking action against those flouting prohibitory order. They have done a commendable work during this period,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah President ICMEI in a webinar organized to talk out role of police in lockdown by NAI and ICMEI.
“To keep1.2 billion people indoors for weeks on end is an unenviable task. But when India went under a lockdown on 25 March, that’s what the Indian police were charged with,” expressed Ajay Kumar Pandey Inspector General Police Law & Order State of Punjab.
“As expected, there was some degree of force and violence: the police are no stranger to deploying batons on suspected law-breakers. But it also birthed some surprisingly creative means of enforcement from personnel across the country,” added Raghavendra H Auradkar IPS former Director General of Police and Commissioner of Police Bangalore.
The duty calls of the police to be in public places also make them a category vulnerable to the risks of COVID-19. Taking the stress level of the force caused by these factors into account, Ajay Kumar Pandey appealed the police force not to lose self-control and not to react to the rough behavior during lockdown duty.
“Other main instructions Police officers gave to the force included importance of maintaining personal hygiene, disinfecting of station premises, vehicles and residences and adherence of lockdown restrictions by their family members,” said Dr. Vipin Gaur Secretary General of Newspapers Association of India.
“ I learned that Station house officers of police stations were asked to ensure that senior members and those having health problems are given station duty, which was a very humble orders,” said Vikas Sharma Chief Executive of Centre for Strategy and Leadership.
Lauding the force for the best practices emulated in so far during lockdown in the city, Raj K.P.Sinha National Commissioner of India Scouts/Guides Organization said “there is no room left for complaints from people during lockdown periods”.
