I would use #oasis. Having to deal with a forever-growing pile of assignments makes me feel like I’m trapped in a never-ending desert. Luckily, I can escape this stressful environment by taking part in Young Post activities. Not only does it give me a nice break from school work, but it helps to widen my horizons, and allows me to make friends with other like-minded teens. It’s the oasis in my busy life.
I think there’s no existing hashtag that would be able describe all the different things Young Post does. From your run-of-the-mill news reporting to giving Hong Kong youth opportunities, and hosting fun competitions like this very Brain Game, there isn’t a single short hashtag I can think of that would encompass it all. Thus, I believe #YoungPostDoesTheMost best describes Young Post. Plus, it’s a really neat rhyme!
I would say the perfect hashtag to describe Young Post would be #PeterPan. The paper has served readers for more than 50 years, and it is forever young as it keeps its content on-trend. It takes readers to the Neverland of the English language, allowing them to discover and share the wonders of student life. Young Post is a platform that encourages teenagers to explore the world, enriches their minds, and empowers them to express themselves – something that never grows old, just like Peter Pan.
If I described Young Post to a friend that only understood hashtags, I would use #recognition. In my eyes, I see Young Post first and foremost as a platform that allows readers to recognise our own and each other’s growing abilities, as it covers many teens with different talents. It also serves as our window to news happening around the world, and provides helpful tips to make students’ lives easier.
I believe the hashtag #OurVoices would be representative of Young Post. Young Post is an all-encompassing and inclusive platform, which allows students in Hong Kong of all ages, backgrounds, race, ethnicity, and religious beliefs to share their voice with the world. Young Post provides a welcoming environment for teenagers to channel their insight into the world around them.
It should definitely be #fun because when we are bored, we can read Young Post for entertainment. You’ll be so focused on the interesting content in the paper, that you’ll forget all your troubles and worries.
The hashtag I think best suits Young Post is #YoungVoice. I believe Young Post is all about giving a voice to young people by providing an outlet to express themselves. Whether through writing articles, joining competitions, or even simply reading about youth related content, Young Post gives local youth a chance to be heard.
Young Post would be best described with #detox, of course. This hashtag is popular among those who wish to share their partaking in the health trend, commonly with a photograph of some cucumbers or fruits in a trendy bottle of water. Young Post makes up all the qualities of a detox diet – it cuts through fake, irrelevant news, providing important information to readers who, perhaps, in this day and age, have consumed too much toxic content.
I think #inspirational best describes Young Post, because it really inspires me to reflect on certain things. For example, the news about how Andy Lau wants kids to find a proper role model made me think about whether the celebrities I idolise are really good role models for me to follow. Young Post not only inspires me to think, but also to improve my English.
#YoungAndBeautiful. It is one of the biggest hits of a singer named Lana Del Rey. And it was played in 2012’s The Great Gatsby movie. But it also reflects the fact that Young Post is tailor-made for youngsters, and most of the issues’ covers are beautiful to look at.
#IUsedToThink. When my dad would watch the news, I stand in front of the TV screen to make him change the channel. I only read the headlines that were catchy or shocking.
And that would be all I read.
Now I’m here at Young Post as an intern – working from 10am to 6pm for two weeks during my Christmas holidays. Young Post has changed how I used to think about news. It’s been great.
