From the girl whose automatic response is “I’m sorry” even when it’s not my fault, who doesn’t honk even when you cut me off and who won’t stand up for myself when I’m blatantly being disrespected: I’m telling you that it’s time to toughen up. Ever had an experience that leaves you...

We are told to strive for success, and with success comes a sense of relevance. But what is the price to remain relevant? I don’t mean the Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg or Barack Obama type of relevance, although that’s great too. I’m talking about that desire to be loved, to be respected or to...

The beauty industry is dominating television, radio and the internet in a way that leaves the core of a girl’s sense of self-worth shattered. While this is nothing new, the industry has found a way to take advantage of the despicable position that society already puts women in, convincing women that...

Gwendolyn was shocked and offended while drinking tea. This can only lead to the inevitable spit-take, live on-stage. I was in the front row, lucky enough to be positioned directly adjacent to where director James Stover had blocked Christina Pinciotti for her character’s big, comical gasp. You do ...

Wednesday morning should have been, and should have felt like, any regular old Wednesday morning. The sun still rose. The Earth still spun on its axis. The leaves still fell from the trees in the beautiful fashion that is autumn. But for me, and many of us who don’t fit into the perfect little white...

The evening of Nov. 8 was a complete nail-biter as Americans waited to discover who the 45th president of the United States would be. Would it be the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton or the Republican candidate Donald J. Trump? I was mesmerized that night — hoping that my own worst fears weren’t...

That...

The goal in life is to be successful, and college is what will get us a foot in the door, but what if we can’t get to that point in life simply because of the cost of schooling? The price of college is unrealistic and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid isn’t much help to the middle class....
