My art and me

Elizabeth Cheng, Editor-in-Chief November 7, 2022

One million steps across El Camino de Santiago

Jason Shan, Web Editor October 10, 2022

A stone’s throw away from the Atlantic Ocean and on the sharp crags of Cape Finisterre, Spain, stands a solitary boot cemented into the rough-hewn surface. It is relatively unnoticeable to most: its...

Battling insecurities by balancing hormones

Anushka Anand, Managing Editor May 26, 2022

Before buying clothes for a new school year, I found myself constantly choosing items that were a size larger than my body in an attempt to conceal my shape. These were also the clothes that I got complimented...

The problem of perfection(ism)

Crystal Qian, Copy Editor May 26, 2022

Perfection. A word that pervades modern society. What do you associate with perfection? Exquisite penmanship, immaculate rooms, straight A’s? Many believe perfectionism is good. I once did too. Today,...

So what do I say? What will I do? Who am I to be?

Hi, I’m Bennie?

Bennie Chang, Editor-in-Chief May 26, 2022

You’ve heard the importance of first impressions, right? That people decide in the first seven seconds if they like you or not. That changing an initial perception is extremely, extremely difficult. So...

The beauty and truth in the ordinary

Elliu Huang, Managing Editor May 26, 2022

On my Ikea Billy bookcase rests 61 notebooks and 37 binders. I remember the lazy summer mornings, practicing completing the square from an algebra workbook in one of my many notebooks. I remember the dim...

Sometimes, you just want to feel understood and normal.

So…what is my major?

Sharlene Chen, Design Editor May 26, 2022
