Improving the diagnosis of reproductive disorders, allowing millions of women healthier, happier, and more productive lives.

This probably doesn’t sound unfamiliar to most women.

The trauma that has been inflicted on all women in some regard is something we will never be able to forget. The unbearable pain, unlike anything we’ve experienced, is incomparable.

It has scarred millions of women and girls all over the world, both emotionally and physically.

Women and girls in modern society are accustomed to the insurmountable…

The world is in chaos. And I don’t think I’m the only one who has noticed.

For the first time decades, society is collectively focused on a singular issue. In a state it has never been in before.

Together, we are fighting an issue that is impacting the lives of every single one of the individuals on this planet to a previously unfathomable degree.

For myself and many of my peers, this year has simply been a blip in our lives.

“Remember 2020 when we couldn’t go to school and were bored all the time? …

Since the start of humanity, women have been pioneers of the unknown. Championing social change, spearheading reform, and making priceless contributions to society in all aspects of society, from medicine to astrology.

Yet, recent research shows that only women’s stories make up just 0.5 percent of recorded history.

Why are women hidden in the shadows? Why are there so many women of whom we know nothing about despite their contributions being an integral aspect to the structure and function of society?

In honor of Women’s History Month, I…


One noun and two suffixes. A frequently heard term, yet barely understood.


A word that is often seen as the unproportional privilege of minorities. A theory of victimization. A label that tells you what you’re allowed to say and think.

But it isn’t the term itself that has caused the controversy that it has brought about; rather, many object to the implications and consequences of this concept, afraid of the new racial and cultural hierarchy some individuals believe it promotes.

Intersectionality does not call for victimization nor for the development of a new racial hierarchy. …

At the time that this post is being written, 2.4 million individuals have died from COVID-19, with another 109 million currently infected due to a lack of effective curative or fully preventative measures.

After battling the chaos of mask-wearing, hand-sanitizing, and staying 6 feet apart from one another for the last year, we have now been presented with the advent of a vaccine. Now, we must continue to uphold these measures while facing the challenges of strategic, equitable, and privacy-preserved ways for last-mile vaccine distribution.

In order to achieve such distribution, vaccine recipients must be prioritized to…

As COVID-19 has spread across every single country on our planet, governments around the world are initiating vaccine distribution and monitoring, and setting comprehensive standards in order to avoid major roadblocks along the way.

Many of the challenges with current vaccine distribution lie in 4 main areas — logistics, health outcomes, user-centric impact, and communication. Each of these challenges plays an immense role in the spread of disease, individual behavior, society, economy, and data privacy alike.

Through logistical planning, a diverse range of populations and countries of differing economic, racial/ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, as well as varying…

Unless you’ve been living in complete oblivion or in Antarctica, I bet you watched Stranger Things on Netflix.

Yeah, the T.V. show where a guy gets sucked into a lightbulb and his best friends find him through secret government experiments and unnatural forces.

But the coolest part of the show was a girl, named Eleven, who showed up out of nowhere and barely talked, but controlled things with her mind and had constant nosebleeds instead.

It was quite the roller coaster.

Undeniably, the most exhilarating part of the show was Eleven’s superpowers.

Namely, her telekinetic abilities.

Being hyperactive middle schoolers…

These are things that I’ve said more than once during my period. They might seem dark or dramatic. Some may say these comments excessive and overexaggerated. But the trauma that my period has inflicted on me is something that I will never forget.

The unbearable pain, unlike anything I’ve ever experienced, has scarred me and countless other women and girls all over the world, both emotionally and physically.

As women in modern society, many of us…

Reflecting on the past year, and moving forward…..

Twitter said it best…..

I think we all know that 2020 wasn’t what we expected. I don’t think you need me to be the one to tell you that.

I have to say, Twitter summed it up pretty well.

2020 was full of so much chaos, yet such little action at the same time. As the world was destroyed by a microscopic virus, only around 100 nanometers in diameter, society became unrecognizable.

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.

As humanity fell onto its knees, many of us were confined…

Unraveling the complicated mosaic of biology nested underneath the neural function of males and females….

Beyond the depths of current brain research lies a strongly debated topic that has resided over neuroscientists and brain research for decades. Surprisingly, it proves to be quite simple for society to disregard the imminent biological differences between males and females in this field.

People have searched for sex differences in human brains since at least the 19th century. In the early 19th century, American physician Samuel George Morton…
