A few weeks ago I was given the great opportunity of traveling to our nation's capital. Anyone who knows me could tell you that before this trip I was talking about it non-stop with excitement and anticipation for what was to come. On my way to the city, I saw so many sites. I even passed by Trump...

A couple of days ago, I was on my Facebook feed watching a live Clinton campaign event in Miami Beach, Florida.

Two nights ago, two candidates were supposed to take the stage to speak to the American people. What we got instead were two separate things. On one hand, we had a prepared candidate who knew the facts. The other came in strong at first, but slowly showed his true colors, with no clear knowledge of th...

Many of us don't take a second to think about the beauty of our planet. The environment on campus I'm surrounded by is noisy, but its something that I cherish and is something I want to preserve for a very long time. This past week, Gov. Jerry Brown committed himself to sign two new polices passed by...

We, as the citizens of the United states of America, all serve a purpose in this country. We are given the power to choose our destinies, shape our future and live out our dreams.

This past Monday I turned 19 years old. It's nothing special, really, compared to many of you who may be older and thinking to yourself, "Hey, I was 19 once and when I was 19 I did this and that." Being 19 really serves no better purpose. It's one year above 18, so that's two years closer to legally dr...
