Almost two years ago, I was quite an active member on dating apps despite the fact I could not have been more emotionally unavailable.

I had gone through what was notably the most traumatic event of my young adult life. In the span of 24 hours, I was sexually assaulted…


I went through another first that unfortunately, many other women do too.

Over the summer, I started a remote job as a secretary at my college and it was an introvert’s dream: being completely alone at home. …

Meeting other people in college is a mixed bag. Surely, one of the first things you’re told when you start college is not everyone has lived their life the same way you have. Therefore, it’s important to keep an open mind.

June 30th marked my one-year anniversary of joining the Medium Partner Program. And with that, inevitably lead to a lot of reflection on my progress.

What made it terrifying? Because it’s accurate and we’re already seeing the early signs of it. And if you’re in need of a wake-up call for climate change, I highly recommend reading this.

I haven’t been able to think about anything else since reading it. I’m almost 22, I still…
