The standings are based on a combination of the main indicators of using technology to enhance the travel experience. For example, India's top position is maintained due to 69% of the country's travelers using voice search, over 60% wanting digital room keys and 88% saying they are influenced to travel by friends on social media.

My Mama Says School is Not for Girls
Watch Reena's story about how she struggled for her right to be educated despite traditional beliefs from her mother. There are still so many places in the world where people, especially girls and women, immigrants, and people with disabilities aren't allowed to go to school.
Education is so important because it's the one thing that can transcends your social and economic status. It doesn’t matter if you were born poor or rich; getting an education can help you to reach your full potential.
Reena knew this and even though her mother disagreed with her she knew that the only way she was going to really be able to help her family and her community was to get an education. It took a long time but once she was able to convince them, she worked so hard to get to a point where she could come back and give everyone, especially the girls in her village the same opportunity she had. But not just that, she also works closely with UNESCO to make even bigger changes with the legal frameworks that UNESCO has spearheaded.
This is only ONE story amongst many of those that struggled and are still struggling to be able to go to school, to be able to get the education they have every right to have, to be able to rise above their circumstance and have the opportunity to achieve their dreams.

Our goal is to discover our own @lupitanyongo in #Nollywood who will be ready for the international red carpets of @festivaldecannes and @theacademy before she is 25.
We are grooming her for the Big Picture!
She is 22 now and her first photographs will be ready soon.
No masquerade makeup.
No fake accent.
No drama queen.
No "Ogbanje" problems and
No bipolar disorder.
She will be ready for global stardom.
It is about time for a Nigerian girl to breakthrough for the big screen.
We have been waiting and wishing for a Nollywood actress to give us the golden moment of tinseltown stardom since 1992, but none of them has been able to make it.
The real African magic Cinderella.
One big breakthrough in cinema is the classic Cinderella story we need from Nollywood.
She is coming.
