When I was growing up, turning to the internet to find a solution to my problems was a dangerous thing. As tempting as the Google search bar was (and sometimes still is) it was not the best place to find out how to fix my life. So, from small things like pimples to larger issues like career choices and boys, I only had a few people to ask and the advice I got was usually based on personal experience not expertise. But, times have changed…and how!
Adviceadda is India’s first website specifically created to help teenagers and young adults with all types of problems they might be facing. The best part is, you can raise your questions anonymously! This site is fast turning into a friend to those who feel like they are at a point in their lives when they have none. By helping the troubled youth connect with experts on a range of subjects from education, careers, fashion and lifestyle to relationships, legal counselling, sex and depression, Adviceadda has provided a sanctuary of sorts where anyone can go and receive good advice from trained people who know what they are talking about and will maintain confidentiality.
It’s a noble idea to have something so special as this up and running and I hope that more and more young people find the answers they are looking for here.
