I was the epitome of uncool in middle school. Almost all of my “friends” were people who would make fun of me constantly and in exchange for putting up with this, they might invite me out every six months. The sadness of being left out and bullied was worsened by how desperately I wanted a boy to like me. How could I meet anyone, especially someone of the opposite gender, if I never had the opportunity to? To search for potential pals, I decided to join a theater group in a community center.

Santi discussed, “Kara snapped a silhouette photo of me in the dark as I stepped into my cab.” The result was an inspiring, catchy video “Banshee” that displayed each of their artistic visions.

That moment of clarity continued for the next week of my trip, embarking on some Eat, Pray, Love realizations.

Donald Trump has turned over a new leaf and is advocating for acceptance across religion, sexualities, and gender. In a new stage of his campaign, he is calling for a weeding out process for potential immigrants, called “extreme vetting”— that would guarantee that "only those who we expect to flourish in our country and to embrace a tolerant, American society, should be issued visas," according to Cosmopolitan. That's right. Trump is campaigning for tolerance and acceptance. Bigots are no longer welcome.
