After my graduation in May, my arts journalism master’s program wasn’t quite done yet. We had one last adventure before we went our separate ways after spending one intense year together. So, after the big hoorah of graduation and then spending a few days at home with my family, I packed my bags for Charleston, S.C. I’ve been to a few southern states before (Florida, … Continue reading Grad School Capstone: Charleston, S.C.
Let me just start off by saying that you NEED to see this movie! It was one of the rare rated R films that is actually hilarious, without being over-the-top raunchy and ignorant.

That’s not to say it wasn’t … Continue reading Internship Recap: NYLON Magazine

Disney displays equality and inclusion in the most beautiful way possible with Beauty and The Beast Last night I attended the premier of the new Beauty and The Beast remake with my mom and little sister. I was probably more excited than the nine-year-old was, seeing how I watched the movie on repeat as a child (as I’m sure most 90s babies have). I am happy … Continue reading Movie Review: Beauty and The Beast
Happy International Women’s Day! On top of it being Women’s History Month, there have been some amazing things happening in the world to promote women and equality. Nike is becoming more inclusive by now selling a plus size line, and a “Nike Pro Hijab.” There has also been a huge wave of mainstream media outlets creating more pro-feminism content.
