The constant feeling of pins and needles is the reality for many. There are people who suffer from severe joint pain, arthritis and injuries. For those of us who suffer from one of these issues, there is a solution: physical therapy. Almost three years ago, my knee popped out of place and since th...

There’s a knot in my throat. I am scared, nervous and excited all at the same time. I hope and pray in my mind that things are going to be just fine. This is not the first time we’ve crossed the border, and it is not going to be our last. I was born in Mexico, along with both of my siblings and my pare...

Growing up with a police officer as a father makes me proud. Whenever he would come to have lunch with me during elementary school in his police uniform, I felt thrilled because I knew that he protected people and the community for a living. I remember that I would go to the police station with my father ...

It is a colorful box. It’s the word “congratulations.” It is retaking the ACT four times. It is three years of all-nighters and coffee the next day. It is all of that hard work finally paying off. Academic scholarships do not come easy, and they do not stick around without continued hard wor...

There is a corridor that I have walked many times – a hallway that leads me to the past. The walls are covered by a timeless coating of memories printed upon monochrome pages. With every step, I advance deeper into the world of my relatives, watching years of their lives blink past within squared frame...

It ruins families. It ruins friendships. It causes arguments at the workplace. It surrounds us in everything we do on a daily basis. It’s called politics. We are not supposed to talk about politics at family gatherings and we often remain silent when any discussion that is even semi-political co...

This is the last time. Those five words have been said numerous times by those who ironically have many “last times.” Words that reassure the mind what you’re doing isn’t an issue and you have control over it all, telling yourself that you could stop anytime you wanted. But do you? As teens...

Breaking a bone hurts. Losing a loved one hurts. But holding a grudge? That leaves an ache so deep you can’t forget it. I don’t come from a happy-go-lucky background of fidelity and support. My parents were separated by the time I was six, and I was switching between custodial hands before I w...

When you hear that someone is “struggling with drug addiction” or is “having withdrawals,” a negative image often appears in your mind. We picture a shaky, gaunt figure dressed in baggy clothes with a needle in hand. The image of a bubbly, teenage girl doesn’t quite make the cut. Who coul...

In his two years as president, Donald Trump has torn at the fabric of America’s core ideology, making citizens wonder what it means to be an American. He has tugged at the thread that has spun decades of foreign relationships and the idea of the U.S. as global pioneer of culture and politics. Th...

Asking a stranger for the time. Remembering to study for a test. Actually studying for that test. Telling someone how you feel. For many people, these seem absolutely impossible. For others, they are as easy as breathing.  However, the gap between these two lifestyles isn't quite as big as it seems....

Be who you want to be. Give back to the community. Express yourself. These were the things I was thinking when I started Bold, an organization to empower young girls to become women. I wanted to create a place where everyone has a voice, including those who don’t want to speak up. Bold is a sisterh...
