Not Sorry
I saw the pass coming into the penalty box and realized that
I could get there before the intended player on the opposing team. I put on a

when my opponent got her foot on it and re...

Finding Healing
A couple weeks ago I got away for the weekend to visit a
wonderful friend who goes to school in the northern part of the state. I was
excited to visit her, though I was uncertain about whether I would enjoy the cold,

Strong Medicine
As I lay in bed this morning, letting the morning light
filtering through my curtains slowly waken my senses to the new day, my mind reflected

Representation Matters
On my rare, unoccupied evenings at home, I like to
occasionally curl up on the sofa and watch Netflix. My current program is Glee . Yes, I’m that far behind the

In Love with rupi kaur
I have never particularly enjoyed poetry. I’ve always felt

Camp Born This Way - Year 2
“Are you trans?” asked the young boy standing in front of
me. I smiled back at him and stated, “Yes, I am.” The boy was around six years old, and attending Camp Born This
Way for the first time with his cousin and his mother. His forthrightness took

Prouder than Ever
The hot summer sun beat down relentlessly as I stretched
before our final game of the season. Kick off would be at 6:30 PM, before the
sun had set, and we would play the first half in the scorching heat. Surprisingly,
