  • 5 Things Nobody Told Me About Traveling Abroad Alone

    As a 19 year old, I felt a little in over my head. I wanted to go to Peru, I wanted to volunteer and back-pack in the Andes. Most importantly I wanted to do it by myself. I don’t know if it was for the independence, or if it really was just because I just couldn’t find someone to tag along. Regardless, I went to Cusco, Peru for nearly a month alone to prove something to myself. After countless late nights of doing research about traveling alone, what to bring, what to expect, etc., there were a couple of things I never read anywhere, things that would have spared me a breakdown or two.

  • #MeToo And What You Can Do To Help

    Sometimes it feels like people's eyes are only just now starting to open to the patriarchal society we call home and how it adversely affects everyone, no matter their gender. Right now there are so many people posting #MeToo on social media, and it is both devastating and enlightening. As a woman, I felt proud of all my friends and family who stood up to reveal to the world just how pervasive sexual assault is. Then I felt the hurt of knowing so many people I admire and love have been hurt-- not because I didn't know how ubiquitous sexual assault is, but because I now know who it has affected in my life. And then I thought about my own experiences: the cat-calls and threateningly being followed down the sidewalk. The hand that tried to go up my skirt at a crowded party. The honking horns and the men who scream out of windows as they speed by. And I wondered if it counted, if I could post "Me, too" on social media or if my own experiences weren't "bad enough" to warrant a post. And I realized, this is one of the problems, that any of these experiences are considered "not that bad," normal, or a part of being female. A tax we have to pay for being born with certain genitalia. Something to deal with and protect ourselves from on a daily basis. Another issue is that we had to do this, to post "Me, too" in alarming numbers just so people would acknowledge there's an issue. But in the midst of everything, I felt comforted by all those reaching out to say "I see you, and I believe you." I felt comforted by all the men posting that they're reviewing their past actions and determined to change. I felt comforted by all the people who protected those who didn't feel comfortable posting their own stories because no, they don't owe the world anything and living as a survivor is just as brave as talking about it. I felt comforted by the outrage at a society that allows this to happen to us, again and again. So, for all those who expressed a desire to learn and grow, this is what you can do to help.

  • 5 Quotes That Will Make You Second Guess Popular Culture Messages

    It is no secret that global media and popular culture have become increasingly familiar aspects of daily life. Even news and popular culture have overlapped and intertwined, as it is clear here on BuzzFeed. BuzzFeed has thus become a form of popular culture in itself, making it particularly relevant to this topic. This explains why this format has been specifically selected for the format for my assignment. The media’s omnipresence has come to shape our thoughts and understandings of numerous subjects, many of which are concerned with the concept of identity. People’s ideas about who they are and what unites them or distinguishes them from others are often developed and reinforced by modern media platforms. This sense of power can be both fascinating and frightening. Though popular culture does have the ability to use its power for good and not evil, it often depicts people and groups in a way that reinforces certain binaries and stereotypes. This is problematic in more ways than one, but ultimately because it can negatively impact the way that we understand identity. Here are five quotes from academic literature that will encourage you to think more critically about popular culture and the messages that it communicates.
