'How you sound should not determine your character'

In my life I have encountered many situations where how I spoke made people think that I were smarter or “better” than them. Because I enunciated my words and spoke in full sentences, I was told I spoke “like a white girl.” As a young teen, I enjoyed reading, which might be where I developed my speech pattern of speaking in complete sentences.

Health Care: A Right or A Privilege

America is the only developed nation that does not have universal health care. Website Who.int defines Universal health coverage (UHC) as, “all people can use the promotive, preventive, curative, rehabilitative and palliative health services they need, of sufficient quality to be effective, while also ensuring that the use of these services does not expose the user to financial hardship.” Who.int continues to explain that the, “UHC embodies three related objectives: Equity in access to health services - everyone who needs services should get them, not only those who can pay for them; the quality of health services should be good enough to improve the health of those receiving services; and people should be protected against financial-risk, ensuring that the cost of using services does not put people at risk of financial harm.” During the Presidential Election Debates this was one of the biggest topics discussed.

Trump's win promotes bullying

By Ajanee Kelly and Alaunna Mckeithen  Donald Trump was elected 45th president of the U.S., it’s been a very close and emotional election.  Throughout the entire election candidates Hillary Clinton and Trump participated in several contemptuous debates. “Bullying is always wrong, it’s very uncomfortable for others going through bullying, especially since the future president is promoting this, it’s as if the president is promoting bullying, which shouldn’t be promoted at all," said Malaysia Townsend, a freshman at Oak Park Freshman Institute.  Sometimes you can’t do anything about it, the same with skin.

​Vowing a vote for the future

When I was a little girl, I always dreamed of the day I would be able to vote. I still remember the mock elections my elementary school had, and how we all went to the gym just to watch the speeches of President Barack Obama.
