"I can agree with this being a sensitive subject to girls, but I have to play Devil's advocate. Do you think you'd be thinking the same if you grew up in the same type of environment she has? Girls, who do not have the means to"…"

Going To The V-Day Monologue Event With My Niece

So earlier tonight I took my niece with me to the vagina monologue event that was hosted downtown. This was our first experience at an event like this so we did not know what to expect. Before the event I found that this episodic play written by Eve Ensler, is a key component in the V-Day movement. V-Day is a global movement (on or around Valentine's Day) where annual theatrical and artistic events are produced around the world to help out anti-violence organizations. This movement has brought…See More

Shout out to all the college chicas out there!

This month and the next month is definitely crunch time. This is the time where a bunch of projects, papers, and exams are due and everyone at school is stressed out because of all their work on top of their out of school engagements. I can definitely feel the stress at this point but I am determined to get the grades I have been working for this entire semester. It is nice to once in a while take a breather from everything, which is what I realized today. Lately, I have been guilty of…See More

Obsession With Celebrity Culture And Why It Is Unhealthy: The Kardashian-Jenner Clan

Nowadays it seems that you cannot scroll down your Facebook newsfeed with out seeing posts relating to the Kardashian-Jenner clan and similar "celebrities" and their lives. This poses a problem to me because people are being pushed (particularly women) to look and act according to the way their favorite celebrities would. Rather than pay any mind to what is going on in the world American media forces women to believe that these celebrities are someone they should aspire to be. Lately I cannot…See More

What Feminism Means To Me

Feminism to me, is a belief system where you are an advocate for gender equality. Feminism in my life has been played out through me wanting to be seen as "worthy" as men are because I feel our society really devalues women and their voice. Being a feminist is wanting a better future, where your daughters and sons do not feel that they have to be forced into a role they are unhappy with just to meet society's expectations. Feminism to me is wanting to live in a world where you are seen as who…See More

Why My Mom Is Special To Me

Posted on May 18, 2015 at 1:01pm 0 Comments

 The most influential person in my life is definitely my mother. Growing up she always set an example of independence and what it meant to do things on her own without a husband. I remember seeing her come home from work when I was young and although very tired, she would kick off her heels and join me on the couch to watch movies and catch up on how our day went. She made me believe that everything was possible, a great mother and she had a career. I remember daydreaming of the day that i…
