How many illegal MS-13 gang members’ stabbings, murders, and gang-related crimes does it take until the United States people support securing our borders? This country is not safe right now, and immigration has been simply an issue that we’ve decided to push off for the next man in charge. A…
This summer, while I was in NYC, my friend Gia and I decided to go to Coney Island for the day. I told her that I wasn’t going to bring my wallet because I didn’t want it to get stolen while we were swimming. She told me she couldn’t do that; she had to have her license on her at all times i…
Since Donald Trump was elected president, I have become interested in politics, and after going to Nebraska Cornhusker Girls State this summer, I try to keep myself up-to-date with what is going on in our country.
Being undocumented at this time and in this part of the country and surrounded by these political views, is terrifying. When subjected to the prejudice and hate that comes along with being undocumented, immigrants and their children suffer from a multitude of emotional tolls.
Immigrants have come from all over the world seeking a new start or a place of refuge. My grandfather’s family started in Norway. His great-grandfather was an immigrant from Norway. At that time, immigration to the U.S. was booming. If my grandfather’s great-grandfather hadn’t come overseas …
The year is 1987, and you are leaving your home in Syria to begin a new journey in America with only a mere $1,000 to your name. Flashforward four years, you have graduated Magna Cum Lauda with a degree in business and marketing. Flashforward another year, you are now a citizen of the United…
Immigration continues to be the focus of intense national debate by both sides of the political spectrum. On one hand, conservatives believe our border should be kept secure and all immigrants should be thoroughly vetted before entering the country. They believe American citizens have preced…
Summer 2019 — the summer of preparation for senior year.
This time of the year, the main thing that I am excited for is summer!
This summer, I will be attending the New York University (NYU) Precollege summer program. I will spend six weeks in New York City living on NYU’s campus and taking real college classes.
Senior year — the year that seems to be what most would call “the peak,” of their high school careers, is just that. It’s the peak.
Being a junior in high school means that, after this year, I will only have one year left to accomplish all of the goals that I had set for myself during high school. I can’t say that I have done everything that I wanted to, but I can say that I have been very busy.
This fall, I am going to be a senior at Osmond High School. Traditionally, high school seniors are known for having top-dog status. They get to roam the halls at will, and have greater freedom in bossing around their younger counterparts.
As a senior in high school, I feel like people don't know what to talk to me about except for graduation and my plans for after high school. My last 20 Below assignment is no different.
I enjoy the traditions at the Guardian Angels Central Catholic graduations.
Spring is here, prom is over, and graduation is right around the corner. Every school does its graduation ceremony differently.
May 10 is approaching quickly and here I am, scrambling to order graduation invitations and compile a list of who to invite.
While I listen to Trace Adkin’s song, “You’re Gonna Miss This,” I realize these lyrics represent things I was told quite often while growing up.
Right now, seniors are the top dogs in their schools. They are the oldest and the most experienced so they know exactly what it’s like going through high school. Seniors are busy with scholarships, college and school, but if they took the time, they would all reminisce about what their high …
As I prepare for graduation, I have definitely spent a lot of time wondering where the time has gone. I think about my four years of school, my four years of sports, and my four years of spending time with my classmates.
