It's rough, it's tough, and it will kick your butt. Type one diabetes is what I am talking about. I have been a type one diabetic for nearly fourteen years. On September 19, 2000, my pancreas stopped producing a hormone called insulin. I was three. No, I didn't get it because I ate too much sugar. No, I can't just lose weight and have it go away. No, you can't prick your finger with my pricker. Yes, I can have sugar. Yes,...

Seven hundred thirty seven miles from home. A twelve hour drive or a two hour flight. A city I have been in love with since I first read about it, and have fallen more in love with since adventuring there. A school that can take a passion and a love, and turn it into a career that lasts a lifetime. A school with a curriculum and resources that rival any other university.

The Virgin Queen, Good Queen Bess, or most commonly known, Queen Elizabeth I. A woman who reigned England for forty four years during the height of the English renaissance at the end of the 16th century. I would ask her about her apparent reluctance to serve as a ruler rather than merely the face of the monarchy. Since the 12th century, when the attempt by the first female monarch of England to claim the throne led to eighteen years of...

Ever since those moments, I have been striving to further develop my artistry. Even as a child, I wanted my...

They all tell stories of characters that are inherently flawed. They aren't portrayed as popular, or perfect, or anywhere close to the top of a social ladder. They are about every day people. These books influenced me to want...

What outrages me the most is the bold faced bigotry that is occurring in our country right now. With the protests that began in Ferguson after there was no indictment of Darren Wilson, there has been a wild fire of protests that have occurred because of the police brutality that has been seen. The fact that people continue to support the brutality and defend it enrages me because studies have shown that police view black civilians as more aggressive, stronger,...

I come from the south. I come from small towns, farms, and a lot of tractors. I come from "hey y'alls," picket fences, and families that have lived on the same land and attended the same schools for generations. I come from sweet tea, fried chicken, and sitting on the front porch with the family. Even though that is where I come from, it is not who I am. I am not a southern belle, content to live in the...
