In late October, it doesn’t take much to get a college student’s heart rate up. Three days of walking around on four hours of sleep will make anyone a little frazzled and just saying the words “due tomorrow” sparks fear in their hearts. No matter how much they may rather spend the last week of […]

Lyn Miller-Lachmann’s “Gringolandia”

Lyn Miller-Lachmann’s “Gringolandia”

It’s a common in Latin American history to run into a military dictatorship during the 20th century, and Chile was no exception. When you study events like this, sometimes the statistics seem more like numbers and not real people. Think about the thousands of people who must flee their homes because their family was threatened […]

Escadaria Selarón

Escadaria Selarón

Today, I’m taking you on a trip back to Rio de Janeiro. One of the most iconic landmarks of the city is the Selarón Steps (Portuguese: Escadaria Selarón) in the middle of the city. If you haven’t heard of it, that’s fair, seeing as it didn’t exist thirty years ago. The Chilean creator of this […]

Dear White People’s Lionel & I

Dear White People’s Lionel & I

Dear White People,  Every time a new season of this show comes out, people shouldn’t have to explain why the title of this show isn’t racist. Partially because if you took a half hour and just watched the show, you’d know why it was called that and maybe you’d even like it. Dear White People is […]

Point blank: if you don’t know I like Beyoncé, just forget everything you know about me and start over. As long as I’ve been alive, Beyoncé, whether as a solo artist or as a member of Destiny’s Child, has been producing my favorite music. “Crazy in Love” is probably the first song I ever memorized. […]

In a Time When Tigers Vape

In a Time When Tigers Vape

As a writer, I am extremely fascinated with storytelling. Storytelling is one of the oldest parts of human life and has probably existed as long as language has. Since its inceptions, people have evolved this art in many ways including all different kinds of media and mechanics. For example, in Korean folklore, stories used to […]

On Valentine’s Day 2018, a kid walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas and killed 17 people. Six weeks later, kids across the country participated in protests all across the United States in support of gun control.  Why did I feel the need to start with a political diatribe today? Because I needed to establish that today […]

Angie Thomas’ THUG LIFE

Angie Thomas’ THUG LIFE

Racism sucks. It’s not just the deeply ingrained attitudes and actions of people, it’s the tiny things that wear you down and the systemic things that are constantly acting on you. For me, the craziest part of racism is how it fundamentally changes the way you think through every situation. (It changes how I interact […]

The Hampton House

Anyone who knows me probably knows I’m from Miami. I talk endlessly about Miami’s diverse cultures and weather without anyone asking to hear. What can I say, though? I love my hometown. It has fashioned itself into being one of the premier destinations in the world, and it continuously attracts celebrities to take a visit […]
