I’ve always stood out in the crowd and been considered a “bookworm" or a “nerd” by my peers. I never took these words as something to be ashamed of, but quite the contrary. I love receiving those types of comments because they’re a huge part of my identity. I’ve enjoyed countless stories throug...

Social media my addiction

Ashna Haiderali, Reporter

October 22, 2019

I was 12 years old when I received the gift of my very first phone, and the first thing I did was ask my parents if I could get Snapchat. Since then, checking social media constantly has become an unbreakable habit for me. When I wake up, the first thing I do is check what’s happening on all my so...

Vaping: The good, the bad and the pulmonary illnesses

October 18, 2019

During passing period one day, I overheard part of a conversation that has stuck in my mind ever since. “I’m so tired of seeing anti-vaping ads. They’re not going to stop me.” The day before I heard those words, I was sitting at a restaurant table with some of my friends and their families on a ...

This season’s New York Fashion Week was expectantly cluttered with unorthodox venues and first looks at what we can expect to see on the streets in spring, but one factor that stood out was the immense diversity in all aspects.

Feminist Fight Club; Susan B. Anthony

Sarosh Ismail, Reporter

October 3, 2019

For the first feminist I write about on this blog, I thought we should go back to who started it all - Susan Brownell Anthony.  The question here is, what didn’t she do? The most important right earned for women, the right to vote, was because of her dedication and relentless fight for it. Antho...

Abortion. Gun control. The media. The economy. Students and youth today are growing more and more invested in and vocal about how the government is dealing with issues like these.

Best Dressed

September 20, 2019

Growing up, I was always playing dress up, getting into my mom’s makeup, or playing hairstylist, which often led to one of my siblings getting a very bad haircut. As I’ve gotten older, my passion for style has only grown. While clothes and makeup have always served as a consistent interest for me,...

Growing up, my mom would tell me about how when she lived in Pakistan she could barely get an education, let alone a job. Growing up in America has provided me with so many more opportunities than she got, and she tells me that if there’s anything I want, then I should fight for it.  I want to tr...

Yasmin Haq, Editor-In-Chief

September 2, 2019

The Amazon forest burning, Kashmir under siege, the Rohingya genocide and Sudan. There’s so much happening in the world -- so much to be covered and so much to be educated on. The world is on fire, yet the headlines of our mainstream news channels appear void of meaningful information.  Switching on ...

Who Cares?

Kate Haas, Managing Editor

August 27, 2019

I am the kind of person who needs to have a plan. Even if my whole plan for a free afternoon is to paint my nails and finish reading a book, I need to have one. So once the spring semester of my sophomore year came around, I started to make a plan for my future.  I’m already accepted to Louisiana Tech for...

I didn’t know whether to focus on the academic aspect, the friendship aspect or even my three years in newspaper. But sitting in the Hebron halls, watching past teachers walk by, I realized it all ...
