Four years of endless assignments coupled with athletic and other school related commitments meant graduation was a bittersweet moment. The work of the past four years was duly rewarded with a diploma and I eagerly await what college will offer in a few weeks time. For stu...

Education is the future. It seems I’ve been hearing this phrase from my parents, coaches, and teachers since I was born. Just like everything that has a future, education also has a price. How much are parents willing to pay for their child’s schooling? In the U.S., most parents often say they “saving for college” when it comes to spending money on their child’s education.

My daily commute (for the past four years) to school was a simple 10-minute train ride. My commute time was similar to those of my schoolmates as we all lived within a reasonable distance to school. For some students across the world, commuting to school is a long and sometimes dangerous daily endeavor. Furthermore, some school-aged children don’t attend school because their families don’t have the resources to pay for them to commute to school.  This

One of the things I’ve always being curious about is stress. What is it exactly? What are some coping mechanisms?  As a student athlete in my final year of high school, stress has been inevitable. Whether it is taking the SATs, applying for colleges, running for my school’s track team or playing soccer, stress has been a constant year around. Loosely defined, stress is when an individual encounters certain challenges. Stress is harmful physically and mentally. Rising blood pressure, tense muscles, and slow digestive system are all common symptoms of stress. Though stress h...
