Growing up, I was never aware of my family's financial struggles. I can honestly say I was never in want, but then again my parent's never allowed us to be dissatisfied. We weren't allowed to complain about eating leftovers, hand-me-down clothes or opting for the generic brand over our "pricey" favorites. For me, every American family lived this way. This was normal.
Looking back, I don't think I grew up disadvantaged or poor, but rather blessed. I don't remember times being hard.…Continue

A major shouldn't be the most important choice in college because that doesn't guarantee that you will work in the…Continue

Traditionally, women have been seen as the lesser, weaker sex. After all, during the birth cycle, we stop developing at an earlier stage than males in some aspects. For years, we've struggled to change this stereotype. Lately, though, I've been reading a lot of articles that make me wonder how close we are to truly eliminating gender discrimination.
Recently, a CBS correspondent,…Continue

Last December my father showed me an column in a newspaper where I live where a young professional woman was appalled at the use of "mi'ja" in a professional environment. As some of us might know, "mi'ja" is an endearment term that literally translates to "my daughter." In her article, the young woman complained that many coworkers who are older than her had called her "mi'ja" which she found demeaning.
I really didn't think much of the topic and even told my dad that I…Continue
