I am currently a first year Law school student at Marquette University Law School. I'm passionate about the things that make us human-- our flaws, hopes, and the social tools that shape our thoughts and perceptions. In my down time, I scribble some poetry every now and then while watching the English Premier League.

Ch-ch-ch-changes in the House

The midterm elections have come and gone, and the Republicans have hatched their chicks in glamorous fashion at the expense of Democrats. For the new and emboldened Republican Congress, it’s going to be either their way or forget it.

Speaking up about Pakistan

More than 20 million people are still in dire need of humanitarian aid and one fifth of the entire country (the size of Italy) is under water, but cries for help by flood victims of the recent floods in Pakistan remain unheard. So why has a crisis dubbed by the United Nations as “the greatest humanitarian crisis in recent history” been left faceless?

Let’s End the Intolerance Already!

As we reflect on the events of a perplexing summer, we must remember this: Sentimental bigotry driven by raw emotions is a terminal societal ill, one America cannot afford, as it threatens the country’s very foundation. Instilling prejudice on millions due to the destructive actions of a few amounts to outright injustice, and we know better

The Generation that Forgot Faith

Over sixty percent of Millennials say that they don’t go to church – or even believe in God. What bothers me isn’t the low church, mosque or synagogue attendance—far from that. It is the reality of a faithless generation, that ours is a generation comfortable with dispelling the idea of God.
