At some point in a student’s life, he or she will feel judged. Whether it’s encouraged by parents, siblings, peers or teachers, stress is inevitable. We rely on a sense of external validation, we rely on someone else’s opinion or standard, to feel a sense of accomplishment. This social pressure drives stu...

Hollywood succeeds enormously at making money and garnering society’s attention. One thing Hollywood frequently fails at, however, is including diversity in its films. While audiences have recently been able to see more diversity on screen, the film industry clearly has a long ways to go. In addition...

Why do we do this to ourselves? We live in a generation where all of the world’s knowledge is at the click of a button for us, and we continuously make mistakes in etiquette when calling someone the right name or their prefered pronouns. Are we too afraid to ask? Do we not want to get caught looki...

Trump says winning a Trade War will be easy but history might tell us otherwise. Greater tariffs on imported goods and greater tensions with China could be results of the Trade War.

My love burns for the world that has opened up for me through my passion for languages.
