Grace Cady, Executive Opinions Editor October 11, 2022
In an education system that has seemed to make strides to become more inclusive, sometimes gender identity is left in the dust. As we become more evolved students and members of society, we must remember to make space for the wellness and prosperity of people of all genders.

CADY: Wear pink, care about politics

Grace Cady, Executive Opinions Editor October 4, 2022

Kirsten Lyons, Opinions Columnist October 4, 2022

MOSES: I write my own identity

Hope Moses, Editor of Diversity & Inclusion October 4, 2022
With skin that resembles coffee, the nighttime sky and tells the story of generations of women in my family, I am a Black woman. The smell of Red Door by Elizabeth Arden bounces off my skin, as it once did my mom when she was my age and I feel grounded in my Blackness and womanhood. Outside of school, I have studied Black history in all its tragedies and triumphs and spoken the language of many of my ancestors, but even before I am Black and a woman, I am Hope.

Krisha Patel, Opinions Columnist October 4, 2022
Growing up, little girls have always been always told to dream big and become whoever they wanted to be. There were no limitations to what they wanted to be and they would have the rest of their lives to pursue their goals. However, when they suddenly become adolescents, society pushed them to find a career that isn’t male dominated and more importantly, ensures that they will be able to settle down at a suitable age.

Rashad Alexander, Music Director September 27, 2022
You would think that after Hip-Hop legends like them were killed, rappers would do better to limit the violence that takes place outside of their music. But it hasn't, and now it seems like rappers are starting to die out.
