I’m worried that getting admitted to a top school — one of the top achievements of my life thus far — might be diminished by classmates who assume that I didn’t earn my place.
Going from being a child to an adolescent is tough. It’s even harder when you’re the only girl in your house.
When I was 13, I was bullied in school. I dreaded waking up in the morning. I made up excuses for missing school. But I got to press the reset button.
Confiding in my mom was like discovering a completely neglected resource that had just been waiting for me this whole time.
For years, I tried to figure out how to get away from my low income, inner city school. But then, I changed my mind.
My mom and grandma are the two strongest women I know. So why do they reject the term “feminism”?
When my friends and I found out that Kylie Jenner, the youngest Kardashian, was pregnant, we immediately infatuated with how “cool” it would be to have a baby.
I’ve called myself a feminist since I was 11. But this Women’s History Month, I want to explain why I skipped out on a major historical moment for women.
My mom always told me that kindness and acceptance go a long way. So it drives me crazy when we fight about religion, sexuality, or gender.
