Below is my final project for my upper level philosophy course– The Ethics of Diversity- that was just graded.

If you know me, you know that I rarely watch television or movies.

TRIGGER WARNING: Physical/psychological abuse, rape, eating disorders, general mental illness.   This is going to be a long one, so buckle in.

When I was in seventh grade, I was pulling my hair out. By the time I got to eighth grade, I’d stopped hair pulling. After a friend said something that made me sad and my mother found me sobbing on my bed, she sent me to a therapist.   At this point, here was my…

Yes, I’m on Reddit. Yes, I’m a bit ashamed. I like to feebly remind folks that Serena Williams’ (husband) invented Reddit, so it can’t be all bad! I originally joined it a few years ago to follow the conversation surrounding my favorite TV show, and one of the only I watch, Survivor. I recently used it…

I have only good things to say today, however! This fall, I’m going to be attending Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. I’m on as…
