Zohra Atash - the singer/songwriter behind the Brooklyn-band Azar Swan - has the coolest personal style we've seen in some time. With rock'n'roll, goth and hair metal influences, Zohra's style incorporates badass statement pieces like a leather harness or a hand-me-down scarf from her grandmother, always against plenty of black and gray.

  In July, the Bratz doll collection was relaunched after a two-year hiatus. The little coverage that the relaunch received was mostly positive. But while popular, the heavily made-up and big-eyed franchise has received a ton of criticism for the characters' hypersexualized make-up and clothes, grossly disproportionate figures, and overall mockery of what it is to be a girl.

A lot of kids today get flack for living their lives out loud on social media, but millennial posts are not all frivolous, silly, or pointless. Sometimes young people use social media to make some important points and speak up about real issues they face in a way that no other generation has been able to do. In this way, social media is actually pretty cool - it gets people to LISTEN UP. On Oct. 27, Carey Burgess, a senior at Beaufort High School, posted on...
