YouTube began as a video sharing website, reserved for puppy videos and eyeshadow reviews. Yet, over the past few years, it has grown to house some of the most talented content creators and short-film makers around today. While cute puppy videos and makeup tutorials still have a place on YouTube, the platform has become a way for talented, creative individuals to share their message with giant audiences at the click of a butto...

Everyday, media and entertainment grows more inclusive of groups of people not typically portrayed on the big screen in previous years. We especially have seen this in shows like The Fosters, Orange Is The New Black, Blackish, Jane the Virgin, and now, Atypical.

Atypical is a new Netflix-only series that documents the life of Sam, an 18-year-old high school student who is on the au...

America is known as the land of freedom. The land to pursue dreams, and for a better future. Unfortunately, for 800,000 undocumented immigrants these hopes are broken. On Tuesday, the Trump administration announced it plans to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The immigrants affected are also known as Dreamers.

This is disheartening and cruel. We al...

I’m Mexican-American. My parents came to the United States in the 1980s with my two older siblings, and for that I will be forever grateful. I was born and raised here in the states. One my biggest dreams was to visit my parents' roots and learn more about my Mexican culture. Finally last year I went to Mexico for the first time. I wasn’t sure what to expect. All I wanted was to get to know my family membe...

"You can't tell anyone, but no, I haven't had my first kiss."

Wait, what? Did I just read those very words from my phone screen? And no, I wasn't incredulous about my friend's lack of lip-locking experience. What shocked me was the unease that she felt towards this; how she commentated this confession with an all-caps "I'M EMBARRASSED." Here's this gor...

"Feminists believe that men and women should have the same opportunities. If you are a feminist you believe in equal rights as a whole. That's not a concept you can really shoot down." -- Lena Dunham

I’m a bit of a feminist freak. In my “what’s the meaning of feminism?” conquest, the results have always been ramblings of gender equality between men and women. But a question that throws me off of my...

The cast of HBO's Girls

I tried watching the pilot episode of Girls on four separate occasions. Each time, I was left annoyed, frustrated, and confused as to why the series received so much attention, not only from my friends and family, but by the entertainment industry as a whole.
