    Each time my mother has been diagnosed with cancer, the bond that we share has been tested. In the past, we always joked about her never getting colds, just cancer. Currently, she is undergoing treatment for her sixth ...
  • Shaw, Ali (2016)
    For as long as I can remember, whenever I gazed into the mirror I would be overcome with shame. My nose was too big, eyes too small, or gut too large. Surely I must be a monster, for I am far too hideous to be deserving ...
  • Wang, Alexandria (2016)
    As a child, my mother always took me to department stores for shopping. I found the mannequins in the window display fascinating. For me, they were like actual human beings, only prettier. Window designers dress the ...
  • Lee, Marcia (2016)

  • McClure, Airen (2016)
    I’ve always carried dreams of what my body could be one day. Sometimes they scream from within me and shake me down to my bones, while other times they have been completely drowned out by other voices in my life. As children, ...
  • Newman, Natalie (2017)
    I believe in the potential of art and other transcendent experiences to inspire growth in the way we treat each other, and the way we treat the earth. By “transcendent experience,” I mean anything that induces heightened ...

    Memories are strongly linked to places, and homes represent a refuge for most. I’ve spent part of every year in the Dominican Republic. My family home there has served as a protective and peaceful place set apart from where ...

    Montinola, Juliana (2017)
    Hailing from Manila, Philippines, I am no stranger to dense, chaotic environments wrought with overpopulation and poor air quality. With little access to green spaces, I became drawn to plants. I was fascinated by their ...
  • Blanco, Holden (2017)
    I’ve never been very good at drawing or painting. I always used to try to draw pictures of my family and friends, or my favorite fantasy movie characters. My pictures never came out exactly the way I wanted until I discovered ...

    Haitian Vodou has long been stigmatized and tainted, warped by Western projections that connect the religion to witchcraft and death. Historically, Vodou, a syncretic religion practiced chiefly in Haiti and the Haitian ...
  • Wen, Connie (2017)
    Art is something that I have always loved from the bottom of my heart. It is a way for me to communicate stories and ideas; it is a way for me to keep myself awake during classes; it is a way for me to understand the world. ...
  • Nguyen, Chau (2017)
    I paint messy. I paint when I am tired, agitated, relaxed, miserable, in despair. I paint utterly unprepared. The only things governing my brushstrokes, then, are fragments of my memory and the canvas before me. I paint ...

    El trauma producido en Colombia por el tráfico de las drogas lleva temas que invitan a un examen del control humano y las características que definen un héroe, asuntos en que el mito se enfoca y articula. Eso hace que la ...
  • Gross, Isabel (2017)
    In this paper I examine the political songs of Chilean poet and ethnomusicologist Violeta Parra. I propose that, throughout her career, Parra develops a mode of narration that is explicitly feminine. Over time, this narration ...
