Founded on September 18th 2014 by Bassim and Fadil Eledath, Maverick Youth aims to revolutionize the role of youth on planet Earth. As the leaders of tomorrow, it is imperative of us to be at the forefront of change. Yet we are considered too young to have a fresh perspective. That is why Maverick Youth was created. We can’t sit idle while the world takes decisions that affect our lives. We can’t turn a blind eye to what matters.
Today, this organization has passed down to Ana Sampaio and Karina Lalwani with the same goals in mind. We want to bring a positive change to this world by engaging our youth to share their views on the largest world issues.
We are an open publication where high school and university students can post their opinions on what they want the world to read.
WHY BECOME A MAVERICK?
We are an international brand. With more than 20 staff members spread over 4 continents, you will have the honor of being in a community of like-minded individuals. As we have readers from more than 120 countries, whatever you publish will make an impact.

“This is a pretty impressive initiative and I am sure it is going to be a great place for healthy and relevant discussions. Just remember that mavericks need not always be against the system but constructive and positive in making the world a happier place. Your generation has to put a lot of things right and debate is the best way to come up with a solution. So here is wishing you great writing and greater thoughts.”
– Bikram Vohra, founder of TheWhy.com and former Editor of Gulf News, Khaleej Times, Bahrain Tribune and the Emirates Evening Post among others.
“A seriously creative platform for the youth. The writing covers a diverse range of subjects. It’s not your run-of-the-mill site, but a class effort from a young bunch. Good show.” – Allan Jacob, Opinion Editor at Khaleej Times.
