    As society progresses*, we must start asking ourselves some serious questions. If socially liberal people are determined to break down barriers and move toward a more tolerant world, it is perhaps time to take a fresh approach in our method. In particular, has the time come to have an open discussion about the boxing together ...

    Ubuntu is an  African term often translated as “humanity towards others”. Growing up in a small Northern Romanian village, I was one of those irritating children that never stopped asking ‘why’? I would ask my parents the silliest questions such as ‘Mom, why aren’t there any more dinosaurs? Why are there so many languages in ...

    Fear is one of the most unique emotions I have noticed over the course of my life. Sort of like anger, but at the same time, different. Like anger, it can take over a person. Unlike anger, fear is the only emotion that dares you to try and push past it. Fear wants you to overcome it ...

    After spending four (or more) years in the college bubble, surrounded by people all the time, being jettisoned into the real world can be a little daunting – Especially when you may not have a close group of friends nearby!

    There are few things particularly as daunting as moving home from college. It’s odd in a very specific kind of way. At your commencement, you were probably told that the world was your oyster. That this particular moment is just the beginning of so much that has yet to come. And whoever told you that ...

    You’ve all seen the cliché stories or movies around small town USA. Everybody knows everybody, nothing is ever locked, and rumors are spread like wild fires. I have the privilege to grow up in small town USA and it is exactly what you think. All of those stereotypes are correct. Fast forward several years, I’m ...
