Review: ‘The Everlasting Wave’ by Xavier Omär

I listen to music a lot during the course of my day. Its not unusual to find me blasting music in the morning whilst I'm getting ready for work, or bopping in the car during my hour-long commute to work and I definitely have a variety of playlists for when I go to the gym. [...]

Ghana life pre-independence…

Ghana life pre-independence…

Occasionally, I come across something really special. A few weeks ago, The Guardian published a series of pictures on their website, commemorating Ghana's Independence (March 6, 2017).

As I've gotten older, I've loved and lost, but the thing that I identified with most from the article is how truly loving someone changes you. I recently let go of someone I love and it was liberating. Loving him [...]

Why do girls feel empowered to engage in sexual activity but not to enjoy it? For three years, author Peggy Orenstein interviewed girls ages 15 to 20 about their attitudes toward and experiences of sex.
