    Prom: the most important night of anyone’s high school years. What could possibly be more magical than a room overflowing with overdressed, hormonal teenagers?

    April 9, 2018

    From the time I was little, I’ve loved to write. My first grade teacher would occasionally give us creative writing prompts to respond to, and they were always my favorite assignments. I enjoyed being able to create anything I wanted. I quickly figured out that when I wrote, my disability was gone. I began to write stories with main characters wh...

    February 14th, 2018, is a day that will never be forgotten. On that Valentine’s Day, a 19-year old gunman entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

    March 28, 2018

    So often, I hear adults critique our generation. “You’re on your phones too much!” they complain. Or, “Kids these days are in the house too much. I played outside when I was little.” I’ve heard our generation called “lazy” and ill prepared to take on the “real” world, and… respectfully, I disagree. Let’s start with the phone issue. I admit,...
