Arizona High School student inspire local journalist

As a journalist, I am always looking for ways to give back to the community, whether it be through my reporting or, in this case, through mentoring high school students in the Donald W. Carson Journalism Diversity Workshop for Arizona High School Students. The program ran from Sunday, June 3, through Saturday, June 9, and it was packed with guest speakers, late nights, early mornings, countless meetings, reporting time, campus outings, plenty of stress, interviews and so much more.  Read more

OPINION: Volunteering in schools empowers everyone involved

Working with these students is really empowering. They were genuinely so excited to write down the recipes of their favorite food and color in the pictures they drew. It’s really rewarding to be able to help these kids learn how to write and spell. They’re so grateful for the chance to see college students and work with them. Read more

OPINION: Love yourself on Valentine's Day

I don’t know what's worse, the endless memes about being Valentine-less or overhearing hearing girls squawking about trivial nonsense like not knowing “what to wear." I HAVE to get my nails, hair, bikini, eyebrows, makeup done. Blah. Blah. Blah. Read more
