An American Expat’s Thoughts on Charlottesville

As much as it pains me to say it, those white supremacists had the right to peacefully protest, as much as any BLM or women’s march. It’s their first amendment right to speak clearly and explain what they want to the public, even if it’s hate speech.

Back to School, College Style: Sophmore Year

It’s that time of the summer when everyone wraps up their internships and vacations to come back to college. The only thing good about aging up in college is not lugging that God-awful pack of clothes, school supplies, food and other paraphernalia back, right? Oh you silly, silly sophomore.

This Semester: Planning for Fall 2017

I am taking 5 courses this Fall semester: AFR202: Autobiographies of African Americans, SOC202: Human Rights in the Modern World, MUS220: Jazz Theory, MATH115Z: Calculus with Biological Applications, and PSYCH214: Human Psychology. Count ’em, 5! Although this is a lot more humanities based than my last 2 semesters, it’s still going to be a handful…

Thoughts on Finishing my First Year at Wellesley

One year ago today, I chose Wellesley. It’s been one year of getting used to being in a different country, being in charge of my body and what it does, and just learning about myself. It has not been easy, and I’d be lying if I said it was fun.

Why I regret getting a Blow out

Usually getting my hair done is a love/hate relationship. My hair is thick with three textures on my head, the softer looser 4C-A kinks in the back of my head, the 4C-B kinks on the left side of my head, and 4C-C kinks on a little circular patch on my right side. In Ghana, when…

Responsible (Drinking) College Life

  College parties! drunk frat bros grinding on drunken sorority girls and jello shots and slurred words and mismatched meanings. But I’m not like that, nor could I get into that lifestyle. True, since starting college, I’ve gone to more parties than I have the whole of my time in high school, but the girl…

6 Ways to Make Friends on Campus

It’s the end of April, and some of you guys will be joining the fold as college students soon! Time flies! I remember when I first stepped foot on campus. I was dressed head to toe in red, a constant smile plastered on my face. That smile disappeared in the whirlwind of first classes, work,…
