Jeni’s Ice Creams Bring the Scoop to Decatur

Why We Have A Responsibilty To Let Go Of Our Fears And Become Our Best Selves

“When the poet Jean Toomer walked through the South in the early twenties, he discovered a curious thing: black women whose spirituality was so intense, so deep, so unconscious, that they were themselves unaware of the richness they held.” – Alice Walker. We know what it’s like to have writers pull our heartstrings.

How Overcoming The Shame Of My Depression Saved My Life & Put Me On A Better Path To Success

Four days after being hospitalized, placed on suicide watch, and diagnosed with severe depression, I returned to Agnes Scott College only to pack my belongings and withdraw from school.

Important Questions to Ask Yourself at the Beginning of Your Career

As a young woman still new to the game, it is easy to lose sight of the difference between a job and a career. Luckily, the internet can lead us to knowledgeable informants, such as writer Trent Hamm, who can bring us back to reality. Unlike your average job, Hamm reminds us, “A career is a series of connected employment opportunities, where you build up skills at earlier employment opportunities to move you into higher paying and higher prestige employment opportunities later on.”.

As I began the long procession of searching online for internships, I had to come to terms with a disappointing fact- as a student with a hunger to gain work experience as a writer, I was living on the wrong side of the country!

When I read the opening words to Rhonesha Byng’s article, “When The Inner Critic’s Voice Grows Louder Than Your Own,” I began reflecting on how I, myself, have come to find my voice and how significant the experience has been to me. Even though I still have a long journey ahead of me, it is rewarding to look back and see how far I have already come.

These are some of the questions that were burning in me. Writer for feminist sites, including Ms. Magazine, Dr. Natalie Wilson, shared with Her Agenda some of her horrifying experiences as a feminist blogger.

As Her Agenda’s motto says, millennial women tend to constantly be on the move. However, our busy schedules can bring on a lot of stress.
