How One Millennial Found Her Calling After the Loss of Her Mother
When I was 5 years old, I walked down Broadway and saw a sign with Big Bird. My dream was to “make it big” in New York City. When I grew up, I moved to New York, but it was a different than I had ever imagined. I chased after a dollar. I hustled. I taught French, worked in a café (for a week), showed apartments, cat sat, house sat, sold an iron on craigslist for $10, worked at Rolex on 5thAvenue and lived in about 10 different apartments. I never planned anything. I was a pianist who threw herself into a concrete jungle. I was always busy and obsessed with being busy. That all changed when I got the call from the hospital and rushed to DC to be by my mother’s side.  → Read More

Being A Feminist In A Sorority: Can You Really Do It?
As a recent graduate from a small southern private university, I have frequently toed the line between two very different identities throughout my four years. I grew up playing competitive softball, was a Women’s & Gender Studies major, and am a proud (and loud) feminist who played a significant role in my school’s LGBTQ organization. I am also a heterosexual, sorority girl who likes to attend fraternity parties and shamelessly flirt with boys. If you find yourself confused by these two very different persona, welcome to my world.  → Read More
In Today’s Workplace Is It a Negotiation or a Battle of the Sexes?
Every study indicates millennial males are an evolved model of masculinity: kinder, more accepting, unintimidated by dirty diapers, comfortable with sharing power with a new generation of high-achieving females. But how well do we really know them – particularly in the workplace? The new generation of women and work have been peeled, prodded and parsed from every angle – their education, their numbers, their issues, their needs, their frustrations. But you would be hard pressed to find one illuminating equivalent study on the male side of the gender divide.  → Read More
Caregiving as a Career
I am a 20-something college graduate with a bachelor’s of science in early childhood/childhood education (birth through grade 6). I am a nanny, with plans of some day opening my own home family daycare. For me caregiving is not just babysitting, it is a career – one that I take very seriously. However, my path as a caregiver has not been easy. It’s been a long, and frustrating road.  → Read More
Breaking Out of Internships
The real definition of an internship today is as follows: long-term interview. Employers are no longer satisfied with the standard three interview hiring process. They want to see what a perspective employee is really like outside of the thirty minute, wearing your best pant suit, hair perfectly quaffed, give ‘em the big smile interview.  → Read More
