The more information we have, the more we know about everything we do, including the products we use on our face, hair and body. The term “green beauty” is becoming quite popular, attaching descriptors like “natural” and “organic” onto makeup and skincare we didn’t think twice on before. Why the change now? And does this …

wake up, weight watchers

We’re slacking on the people that need the most support. And these people are Weight Watchers’ newest target market. Teens 13-17 years old have become a focus for the Weight Watchers program. Starting this summer, this age group can get a free membership to start counting calories or points. This what what the company totes …

embodying Martin Luther King’s dream

On this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day many people have off from work and school, how great is it to sit back and relax into the week? Admittedly, it’s nice. I’m not complaining. As long as we recognize the importance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and all it stands for in our tumultuous present. …

who’s next?: the Weinstein scandal

The news keeps coming. Someone new every day, it seems. It feels like what it would be living in the McCarthy era accusing each other of Communist ties. Countless women are now coming forward to point out a past of sexual misconduct from male coworkers, men that just so happen to be in the public …

Day 5: Peace Corps #GIG2017

As a Peace Corps campus ambassador, I admittedly have not been the best at being an outspoken advocate. Sitting at tables in crowded common areas isn’t exactly my forte.

Day 2: Clean Water – #GIG2017

We would be nothing without water. Our bodies are composed mainly with water. We drink, bathe, and use water constantly. It’s a basic necessity. Something basic that we probably don’t think too much about on a daily basis beyond getting those eight glasses each day for optimal health. Except for far too many people in …

Reaching for Help

We have been hit. Hard. These past few weeks of what seems like constant storms, constant devastation, have left us out of breath, out of energy to really address any specific area without our vision fogging up. How can we focus our time and resources toward one place over the other when it feels like …

Uncharitable Charity

I believe in giving. Whether that be in time, support, money, whatever else, our innate desire to charity is one of humanity’s greatest gifts. I will forever be in awe by the efforts of some people, past, present and future, who work hard to make the world a better place, starting with those who need …
