Community service, especially in a time like this, is very valued—especially since those who are less fortunate are suffering a great deal due to the pandemic.  Given that we are encouraged to stay inside, how exactly can we give back to our community from the comfort of our own homes? The...

Loving Philly—With Privilege

On Oct. 24, I was positively itching to get out of the apartment, so I texted my friends who had invited me to go into the city with them that day. I’d turned them down initially because I was feeling overwhelmed by school—but then I said, carpe diem. I careened through my school work; having...

My Post-Election Perspective

I have never considered myself a very political person. I have always liked to make sure I educated myself on important topics, but sometimes keeping up to date was more draining than helpful. Seeing the way that people like me are often treated and how many barriers there are, I would get tired....

The Keswick Village: My Home Away From Home

2020. At times, this year has made me think that “normal” is a thing of the past, but the surprisingly great thing about change is that, while at first things are strange and difficult, with time, we make a new normal.  Keswick Village is a small hub of family-owned businesses...

Pandemic Was Not on My Vision Board

I don’t know about you, but the pandemic was NOT on my 2020 vision board. How could it be? I had visiting new places, going on adventures with my friends, and being social (not socially distant) as my top priorities.  I also think, after all these months and disruption, that we...
