The Case of Misunderstanding

The intention of the message is lost, causing both sides to bicker and banter. Perspective impacts opinion and causes emotions to cloud one’s judgment. Person one says something to person two. Person two takes what person one said to heart and accuses person one of meaning something they didn’t because the communication wasn’t clear. ThisContinue reading “The Case of Misunderstanding”

#MeToo, One Year Later

One year ago, I was in a hotel room in New York City, about to leave and take the N train from 42nd street to 23rd street to see the Flatiron building, when I got a notification on my phone from CNN. There was a breaking story on Harvey Weinstein in the New Yorker. TheContinue reading “#MeToo, One Year Later”

Believe Women & Believe Survivors

I’ve been trying to think about how to write this post all day. Last week, this country went through a roller coaster of emotions with the Senate Hearings.

Like previous generations, millennials contain all different kinds of people. Passionate people. Lazy people. Stupid people. Thinkers. Scientists. Writers. Makers. Creators. Yet people, specifically the media, consistently box us together. I saw a headline a couple of weeks ago about a teacher who said she couldn’t teach millennials because they aren’t willing to learn. ThisContinue reading “You Can’t Box Millennials Together”

Internet Trolls & Hateful Critiques

Last week, I watched a live stream on Instagram. A teenage girl named Lilia Buckingham was crying because of the hate she received after tweeting how she’s worried about writing a screenplay because she doesn’t know how she would fund the movie. People came after her for tweeting this because from how it looks throughContinue reading “Internet Trolls & Hateful Critiques”

Before You Fly

The scariest thing about taking a risk is jumping off the cliff. You’re not sure if you will know how to fly as you say goodbye. The view is beautiful but also leaves you in a state of shock. It’s only when you jump, will you know you will fly farther than you’ll fall.  Continue reading “Before You Fly”
