My scars do not define me

My scars do not define me, but they do tell stories. I have scars under my breast due to breast reduction surgery. Having this surgery was one of the best decisions I have ever made.The type of attention I used to receive wasn’t the type any teenager or young woman wants. I was sick of being...

Racism in Canada

A black skin child went missing in Montreal, Quebec, this week. An amber alert was sent out. Most shared the amber alert with heavy hearts for this little boy and his family.

Let’s listen to teens

Don’t be a doormat

Pleasing people isn't a bad thing in itself, but if it because the most important thing to you to please people all the time, in every situation, it can be very negative.
