Travel Enthusiast. Arts & Culture Lover. The Voice of Millennials.

I am a Junior Journalism and Business Management major at Stony Brook University. Everyone has their own stories to tell, yet, their voices are often unheard; stories are mostly unspoken. I would like to tell their stories because every voice matters. Reveal your feelings, let go of your emotions through words and let them represent you.

Scars might be Permanent, but your Pain Speaks

Travel To Find Yourself

As a travel enthusiast, I got to meet a lot people from different backgrounds since I was small. It is kind of a family tradition for me and my parents to travel to somewhere we have never been at least once a year.

What Greek Life Has Given Me

The question of whether or not to go Greek is often something freshmen think about when they first enter college. Stereotypical views about sororities and fraternities exist because of all the possible hazing incidents in Greek life being reported on the news. People were a bit surprised when they realized I joined a co-ed professional fraternity.
