Pride: Resources for LGBTQIA+ Youth

Posted on

It’s a scary feeling not knowing whether or not you have the support of those around you when transitioning “out of the closet.” It’s especially scary when you’re a teenager and live with closed minded individuals. Hell, it’s the worst knowing that there is a possibility you can be kicked out for being who you […]

Pride Month: The Origin

Posted on

Some people have the common misconception that all members of the LGBTQIA+ have it easy. Now that relationships between people of the same sex have been normalized at least in cities like Los Angeles, for example, life isn’t hard at all! After all, who doesn’t want a GBF (Gay Best Friend)?  Although things have gotten […]

Latinx Youth in America – Part 1

Posted on

Being a low-income, first generation student is not easy – at all. Learning the “ropes” and becoming accustomed to the burden – the hardships – bestowed upon a person is difficult. This is especially strenuous for Latinx youth in the United States who are not provided with/have access to the same educational opportunities as their […]

Volunteer.

There are many benefits to volunteering if you’re a student; the most obvious: completing those required hours for graduation. However, if you’re part of a service organization like I am – National Honor Society for example – volunteering becomes more than just required hours. Remember, the most rewarding part of volunteering is realizing it’s not […]

How to Find the Right College and Apply

College applications. I don’t know about you, but they scared the hell out of me. As a senior in high school, I am a recent victim of college applications and the heavy toll they take on a large number of high school seniors every fall. I, however, am not here to scare you or advise […]
